Revenge Run Raffle

Tim from Death Science asked if I wanted to sponsor The Revenge Run 3 coming up in April. I told him I would be honored and that I would make up a wallet for their raffle. I'd love to attend, but can't make it to the event. I am definitely going to try and make it next year.

Check out the event blog @ and the Death Science crew @

I'll post pics when I get it completed. Thanks Tim for asking me to be a part of your event!

Product Test: Duluth Trading Co. Contractor Boots

I read a review in Street Chopper Magazine a few months back on these 6" Contractor Boots from Duluth Trading Co. I've been in the market for a nice pair of boots and have read all kinds of reviews on Red Wing. I was all but sold on going that route when I stumbled across the review in Street Chopper.

These are American Made (in Wisconsin) with Vibram soles and a Goodyear welt (they can be re-soled). They retail for $149.00 vs. the $260.00 Red Wings I had my eyes on (good selling point)!!! They also have a no questions asked return policy (another selling point)!!!

I figured I would post a detailed review in a few months so I can give an honest assessment.

Spring is Coming...

Today the high was in the low 70' JANUARY! I talked to Bill and both of us have a little touch of Spring Fever. Can't wait until Winter is officially over and we can get back to our routine "overnighters" in random forests around Alabama.

Kustom Jeff took the picture of the year in my opinion. "A Boy and His Dog"

Big Boss Ross has taken me under his wing on all things camping.

Larry sampling my favorite camping meal "Conechuh Sausage"!


Getting away from it all with good friends (some might even use the term Brothers)!!! Looking forward to our next adventure...

New Exhaust for the Ironhead!

Spenser and I have been talking about new exhaust pipes for quite a while. I ordered up some 1.75" stainless a few weeks back and today we got to it.

It was a really fun project and all that's left is the finish welding. Spenser will tackle that next Saturday then I'm going to polish them up!

Spenser figuring out the "loop" section of the rear pipe.

Top view: I've got to relocate my key switch or I see burned hands in my future!

I got some new photo editing software and have been playing around with the lighting.

Old Pipes

New Pipes (plus Kustom Jeff's lower body)

I'm super pumped on how they came out. As Kustom Jeff put it: "Just another change that has taken my bike in the right direction." I couldn't agree with him more.

Thanks again Spenser...I'm proud to call you my friend!
