It's been a good ride so far!

Since I was just a kid all I have ever wanted to do was to make people laugh or just smile. As a child, an educator sent a note home to my parents. It read; If your son thinks he is going to get through life making people laugh he is in for a RUDE AWAKENING! He is not living up to his potential. WELL, I'M STILL NOT! But at this site you will at least see me try. From the heart, thank you for even being interested, it means the world to me. I always say, I have not a single fan but many a friend!

The building of a dream!

Okay, so for my facebook friends, you may remember this. A few weeks ago I told you that a friend of mine was having a rough day and had just made a page for his business. I asked you guys to go and click on the link and hit like and help try and blow his page up a little bit that day to bring a smile on his face. Well you fine folks did it for me and I am so grateful, thank you. The funny thing was that I got messages like, "Jack, I went to the page, but it is virtually blank, what gives"? Well he had only made the page the night before and had not had a chance to load it up with anything. So it is not a new business by any means, just a new page.

The description on you tube for this video talks about the Universe trying to crush someone and this is that someone. Many of you know by now the incredible, odds beating relationship I am so very lucky to share with my beautiful wife. We have beat the odds and have stayed together for a very long time. The crazy part that blows every one's mind is that Diane and I spend virtually every waking moment together and for nearly 25 years! HOW CAN YOU DO THAT WITHOUT WANTING TO KILL EACH OTHER? That is the question I am asked the most. Very few people on earth share a crazy ass relationship like this. Well my Brother F Bomb shared nearly the identical life with his girl as we do. 2 years ago, while running the Stampede Race on her bike across America, she was tragically run down by a tractor trailer in Oklahoma and we lost her. For Brother Bomb, this was like having his soul cut out. Rather than curl up, give up and wither away, he did the only thing that he could and he loved his girl and honored her in death as he did in life and continues to do so till this day.

You would think that after a horrid tragedy like this that people would be decent human beings toward him or that the Universe would say, "hey man, sorry about that shit, but we are going to give you a break now"..... WELL NO, THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN! The Universe and the scumbags that he was surrounded by tried to take this moment in his life while he was in mourning and distracted to try and destroy him. The people where he has worked for 24 years tried to fuck him over at work and either take his job or cost him his job. NICE RIGHT? The Universe also continued to pile shit up on his shoulders that I could never imagine trying to carry the weight of, but yet he has done it. So instead of just giving up, taking the cards that he was dealt and playing that hand, he tossed back the cards he didn't like and pulled some new ones and came to us with a dream that he had. Well there was nothing on earth that was going to keep us from doing everything in our power to help get that dream off the ground. Well 80 - 100 hours per week of non stop work and commitment has taken him to the point at which you will see in this video below. So when you guys clicked "like" on that West Valley Choppers link that I posted, this is what you were clicking like for! You clicked "like" on, in essence, my friend and brother's dream. There is no doubt in my mind that he will make this a go and be successful, because for this great man, he has no choice, he will not allow himself to be broken or to fail! He moves forward because that is what his girl Lorri, the QUEEN OF THE STAMPEDE would not only have wanted him to do, she would have kicked his ass for not doing it! I have nothing but love and respect for this man who only after horrible tragedy became so much a part of our lives. So while the Universe is jamming it in to his ass dry and breaking it off, at the same time, it placed us in his path and I guess for a reason. It is a strange life we all live and there are never answers, only questions and we must push forward. When times are tough and I feel like it is hard for me or us to go on, we think of what our dear friend has gone through and he inspires us to keep up the fight! I always say, KEEP YOUR KNUCKLES UP AND YOUR CHIN DOWN and you will never, ever, BE KNOCKED OUT! You may get knocked down, but never out!

He will be off in the next week or so for 21 days of racing and riding around this country and all on hand built bikes that he created. He is one of the guys that runs the Stampede and he is ready to run that again. When he returns, we will help him in any way possible to finish this job and light the fuse on that very dream of his. We are going to stock this building with great products, sick bikes and amazing clothes and art and everyone will be welcome to come on down and join us in a party to kick the whole damn thing off and I am counting on you guys, you fine folks to come down and join us! So remember the name West Valley Choppers because soon enough you will be hearing great things about it! You will be able to remember how it all got "officially" going and in a way, you will be able to look back and say, "shit man, West Valley, I was there the day they kicked in to high gear". As always, thank you so much for your endless support for both my family and the ones that I love, it never, ever goes un noticed and I assure you that it will never be forgotten!

Until we see each other on the road,

Keep the wind in your face,
Tits in your back
and The Man off your ass!

Your friend,
Jack Shit


  1. Looks like great place for an art show! (hint)

  2. Love this post about your bro ... sucks that when people are down they get kicked (been there) but since we can't cater to the low life denominator it just makes us stronger when we get back up! Thanks for blogging. Cheers from a biker girl in CO ...
