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!

You truly just never know!

For a great many of us, we will never ever know how many lives we've touched, how many people respected us or how many people counted on us or simply, HOW MANY PEOPLE LOVED US! Here is the perfect example. Kenny Lucas, Master Bike Builder from Knockout Motorcycles here in Mesa, AZ was killed while test riding a customers bike of all things! Here is one of the best wrenches and riders I've ever known and in one split second, it was all over! I am sure that as Kenny spent day and night in the shop, he could never in his wildest dreams imagined the way his loss would affect so very many people! When I arrived 45 minutes late to the Memorial last Saturday, which by the way was 6 blocks from my house, I was stunned with the turnout and that was before I realized that there was nearly as many bikes behind the shop! The showroom and the massive shop at Knockout were packed to the walls with friends of Kenny's! As I sit here in the Atlanta Airport, waiting on a connecting flight to Daytona for Biketoberfest, I sit here wearing my Kenny Lucas shirt! The memorial was quite fitting. First we got together, shared some stories, shared some memories, ate some food and then took off like crazed bastards on murdersickles, ah yes, just the way Kenny would have. I don't have a lot of time to write because I know just what will happen, I'll get in to writing this story and miss my fucking plane, so I will just say this.... Kenny, you were truly one of a kind my friend! Had it not been for you, my bike would have been fucked. I would never have made the ride to Sturgis and you guys know how great Sturgis was for me this year! 6 degrees of seperation. As it turns out, the guy, my friend that I write about all the time, Keith Cole was taught damn near everything he knows about FXR's from Kenny and I never even knew it..... what a small world! Enjoy the video, it's quick and only about half the bikes that went on the ride....

Kenny Lucas, long may you run my friend, Long May you Run!

Until we see each other on the road or in this case, Daytona for Biketoberfest, be safe and be kind, what comes around goes around, love as you would like to be loved.

Keep the wind in your face, tits in your back and the man off your ass!

Your friend,
Jack Shit
