I hope he is riding a closed course competition because he had no business being on the wrong side of the road.

PS: as slow as he was going, he could have easily made it in the correct lane.

It's a boy with a bucket on his head fighting an upside down turtle, some Shell Silverstine drawing. I had a mentally ill girlfriend who was studying to be a tattoo artist and see called me up and said "hay do you want a free tattoo?" and I was all sure.... I get there and the shop is in a Cuban flea market in Miami and found out she had never tattooed anything other than honey dews and pigs feet but they had a working autoclave so I figured why the fuck not. This was by far the most painful tattoo I've ever had it is also the shittiest it bleed like a head wound and half way though the stoner Cuban who was "teaching" her said "hay why haven't you lubed the needle with Vaseline? And you fucked it all up your going to have to back over it all".... I hear she is sturdiest for continental airline now

It's funny, I always felt like I was protected, wearing my jeans to ride on the street. I knew I was pushing it a bit, going without knee pads in the dirt, oh well... Definitely grabbing some knee pads for when I make it back out to the desert, and I'm considering buying some riding pants for the street too.

Jamin now that's a tatto with a good story.... I got a few on my legs from back in the day I had my buddies older brother who had some jail house experiance tattooing do mine... I was like 15 years old and made my own homemade gun for each one and he did them for me... I have a big one on the back of my leg that I swear we did with what looked like a leather sewing needle... Many years later I still remember how bad that fucker bleed and hurt.

That is a good idea I don't like to get preachy when it come to protective gear but it's awesome when you go down hard and pop back up mostly unharmed. If you don't want to walk around with goofy moto pants anytime you take your bike some where you can look into these LINK probably not as good as leathers but a hell of a lot better than jeans alone.

ya the riding pants can only protect us from rash, so you could always wear jeans as long as we wear our underarmor, problem with any pads that are in pants is they will move when you crash.. I still cant bring myself to wear any elbow protecction, just core protection, chest/back, so when I crash I always try to rotate to my back if I can when sliding and what not... My Last off was kinda comphy, I always just wanted to lay there and take a nap after, didnt get hurt at all except my pride lol...


I cant wait to ride with boomshaka, I need to get a Gopro I have a feeling this guy is going to be famous heheh


and tutrles always win...

Here look at these VERY NICE..

I worked in a cabenet shop that hiered dudes on work release to sweep the floors one dude called big country told me how to make a tattoo gun like the one in the video. I'm glad I never made one or I would have a lot more shitty tattoos

Thats about spot on with what we use to make...and that is why me and my buddies all have really shitty tattoos
I worked in a craft type shop as a teenager and was able to gt all the parts and ink...we would get shit faced drunk and tattoo each other (probably why I always remember bleeding like a stuck pig)..good times

I will be riding on the east end of silverwood lake tomorrow but probably stay on the west side of arrow head.
If you see a big guy on this tiny bike be sure to salute
