For once I have more video than stills and I wish I knew how to drop them in here now because you guys would love them. I could see a big circle forming and people being pushed back and thought, finally, a good ol' American fight! Well what would you think with all these DIRTBAGS together in one spot? Since the circle had formed right next to my bike I thought wow, I hope it's a fight and my bike isn't on fire. As I walked over I thought ah, you're being stupid, that is until I saw them coming over with fire extinguishers..... needless to say, my pace picked up a bit. Well, my bike was not on fire, but all kinds of shit was! There was going to be a display, a performance of fire dancing, no big deal, seen that shit before. Well again, I could not have been more wrong. These fuckers had chains with flaming maces, metal bars with flaming balls that they spun around with their necks and yes, the first time I have ever seen it, a chick doing the hula hoop... big deal right? Oh yeah, did I mention that the hula hoop was on FIRE?
Right now all I can say to you guys is that I am so sorry that I did not take more pics. I was so busy being happy that I forgot most of the time that I even had my camera on me. On this night, there was nothing but an amazing moon, incredible hosts, a mind blowing venue to host it all and some of the sickest bikes you have ever seen. Nothing could be better about this night. Not one single problem! Well that is until I walked over to where I had left my crew sitting and as I approached, they were all heading my way with a little extra zeal in their collective steps. I thought that a pit bull with aids was on the loose by the way that every one on that side of the property, from the entrance gate to the porta pisser was heading my way and quickly. Being the idiot that I am of course, I had to walk right past them to see why everyone was going the other way. All you could see, for as far as you could possibly see were red and blue flashing lights. I said earlier in a face book post, I would have hated to be the cop in the last car to arrive because it had to be a five minute walk from where he had stopped his car to the front of the line of Police vehicles! So suddenly, I find myself the only one standing smack dead in the middle of the black top lot, not one person around me and I thought for a moment that God was there to take me. I was bathed in the brightest, whitest light I had ever seen! Turns out, God was not there to take me, nor was it the light from the moon, it was the massive spot light from the Phx Police Helicopter and it was pointed right on me.... again, here is another spot where I have no photo, but I do have some great video....
So now what you have is a party that got a bit loud! It went I am sure a bit longer with the noise than would be allowed, okay, we'll quiet down, seems like a reasonable response to the police. YOU WOULD THINK RIGHT? Wrong! I have to say right here and now, that had they entered the property all the peace and PURE vibe that had been there all night would have instantly shot to hell and the Foundry Crew knew this. They stood shoulder to shoulder and would not allow those cops on to the property! Balls of steel boys, balls of steel! So here you have a few hundred people who have been drinking and they want everyone to leave? I guess the cities coffers needed a few more coins because I can only imagine the DUI tickets they would have gladly written. An ultimatum was given and it was by far one of the most ignorant things I had ever heard. Everyone, must go inside the building and then the doors must be closed. So they took a simple noise complaint and turned it in to one of the biggest fire hazards I have ever seen. Remember the Great White Concert in Long Island? Had a fire broken out, hundreds of people could have been hurt or died! TO PROTECT AND SERVE MY ASS! That was it, the line was drawn in the sand! My officers will not leave until we see everyone inside and the doors closed! Out of respect for our hosts, everyone went inside the building where for the inconvenience, now became a come and get it, free open bar. Like I said, these guys at Foundry Moto are nothing but class.
There was no way that I could be packed in like that, so I pulled my rolled up leather off my scoot, threw it on the ground and lay down next to my sweet Koko Knuck. A short while later, Worm and Nomad were splitting, it was my chance to bounce as well, strength in numbers right? I got my shit together in a hurry and kicked the ol' girl to life and we rolled on out, fully expecting to be stopped and cavity searched on the next corner. Luckily, we were not! We made it off of the surface streets, it that freeway balls out and got the holy hell out of Dodge! The evening could not have ended more perfectly than to be barrel assing down the freeway at 1:30 in the morning with great friends and having that freeway damn near to yourself! I would say that is all to the night, but it was not. Tomorrow, I'll post the story and the video to go with it about our last stop of the evening at Taco Hell!
I'll say this, Big Chris, Rudy, Matt, Robbie, Danny G and everyone else that I just missed from Foundry Moto, you guys are the epitome of class. Thank you for treating me so very well when I got there and right up until the moment I kicked over my bike to split! I can't think of anyone here in Arizona that throws a party like you guys do! Let's do it again real soon, please don't let it be so long between these gatherings of some of the finest people on earth! I'll see you on the road soon and again, thank you so very much for putting a Long Ass Overdue Smile on this dirtbag biker's face! Again, I only wish I had taken more still shots to share with you guys. If you don't know who Foundry Moto is, then you best Google that shit or something and learn quick, because if these guys are not in your life, YOU HAVE A HOLE IN YOUR LIFE!
Till we see each other on the road, I am your friend, Jack Shit and please, till that time comes again;
KEEP THE WIND IN YOUR FACE
TITS IN YOUR BACK
AND THE MAN OFF YOUR ASS!
