Saddlebag in Progress

Here's the latest saddlebag I have been working on. This is a full custom design for a customer in Chicago. It's been a challenge (I'm beginning to think every project presents their own challenges) but I'm liking the way it is coming along. Lacing this panel to the gusset took me over 4 hours!!

I'm taking a break and then it is time to tackle lacing the other panel!

Lowbrow Customs Getdown

Ross and I had a great trip up to Ohio for the Lowbrow Getdown.  This year, the event shared the venue, Nelson's Ledges Quarry, with an Electronic Dance Music Festival...that's fancy talk for "Rave".

It was quite the mix of people sharing a 300 acre campground.  People watching was extraordinary!  We met awesome folks and had a fun time exploring around the quarry.

We ended up clocking over 1650 miles round trip, the longest motocamping trip for either of us.  There is an art to long distance riding and I have a new found respect for those who log mega-miles.

Big thanks to Tyler, Kyle, Greg, Longhair and the rest of the Lowbrow Customs Crew for the hospitality.  We hope to see y'all down South soon!

Get on up to Get Down!

This weekend is going to be awesome!  Big Boss Ross and I leave Wednesday headed North to Ohio.  It will be the longest trip I've done on my Shovel, 1600+ miles round trip.

Checking and double checking the bike.  Can't wait!
