DicE Issue #41

Spenser's sweet Shovel will be featured in Dice #41 (out soon). I can't wait to see how the shots came out. The photoshoot at BMR was pretty cool!

From the DicE blog:

Spenser's bike is like a roundhouse-ninja-wizard-kick to the goolies!

Whole lotta bottom ends...

I swung by Garage Co. Customs on Saturday for the usual round of "shoot the bull". Saturday was also the day that the "Long Haul Shovel" came home with me!

While I was there I noticed a whole lotta bottom ends exposed. Between Zoom's Panhead, Larry's Chop Off bike, and David's Panhead there were a ton of exposed bottoms!

Here's a shot of Larry's bike on the lift (not much room left...that bike is SUPER long!)

And here's a shot of my new workspace. We completed the move last weekend and I'm slowly getting my bearings. I look forward to working in this space over the winter to bring the "Long Haul Shovel" to life!

2011 Longboard Skateboard Championship - Barber Motorsports Park

I'm proud to have won the 2011 Longboard Skateboard Championships at Barber Motorsports Park! The idea came up around the campfire @ the Barber Vintage Festival. Alcohol was a contributing factor! Turns 3 and 4 were pretty sketchy at night! I had visions of road rash and hospital co-pays while bombing down the sweeping turn!

Me giving the boys the replay after we were back on the right side of the fence!
