back in the days, i went through a brief punk phase. you know, the classics: NOFX, offspring, fishbone, Rocket from the Crypt, even some greenday, etc... one band that i always digged was Pennywise. I remember seeing them live at the Warped tour and was blown away by their live performance; one really cool thing i remember about that performance is that the dudes from fishbone, deftones, and some other dudes all came out and performed their last song with them. it was great to see the vibe of friendship and respect that these dudes had with the other bands Fast forward a few years and i was watching a shred video (the rascals) and it featured a short clip of the Pennywise classic "Bro Hymm" - which instantly took me back to my punk days. not having seen pennywise for years, i checked em out on youtube and found this brilliant live performance of bro hymm - checking out this performance, it once again confirms how rad pennywise is. seriously, i would be crapping my pants with that many randoms on stage with you, but Jim and the crew take it in stride and throw high fives, hugs, the whole bit. Just like that performance from the warped tour, pennywise shows that they are down with everyone, and not above their fans. so good Hit play on the video, turn up the speakers and yell it out "ohhhhh, ohh, ohh, ohhhhh, ohhhhhhhhhhh, ohhhhhhhhh, oh, oh, ohhhhhh"

Well, here it is, almost finished up. Just waiting on some new pipes and I should be happy for a few months. It's my third bike and retains the vibe of my past 2, while also keeping things fresh. And yes, the 883cc engine is slow as all hell, no worries though a 1200 kit will follow in the fall

So my beloved chop sold the other day, and the timing couldnt have been more perfect as the wife and i got smacked with a huge Tax bill. While it sucks that i dont have a bike anymore, i'm thankful that my chop was able to bail me out... again. yeah, the thing was a deathtrap, but i loved it and it always got me through. and it did again now, thanks Sporty, i'll miss you
