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,

The Countdown is On!

I am 9 hours from leaving for the airport and flying over this great nation of ours on my way to the World Famous Broken Spoke Saloon!  Tomorrow will be a 23 hour long work day for me.  From the time that I get up, hit the airport, fly, land, catch a ride and jump on stage and blow the Spoke up, I will have been up for 23 hours straight.  Now that is the way you start off your rally, balls out! 

We've got so much planned for such a short rally that it is going to be as I like to call it, madness and mayhem!  In the last four days I've gotten 16 emails about Jack Shit shirts...... the answer is YES!  I will be bringing as many as I can carry.  This isn't like the usual week long event where I have 500 or more shirts, I can only bring so many on a plane in one suitcase so I suggest you get them early.  If you find yourself out Ormond Beach way and you are a bit buzzed out or it's early and can't get yourself in gear, we are offering free coffee, day and night, so don't take a chance, stop on in the bar and get your shit straight!  I was also asked if we were going to hit people up for cash to park their bikes.  I will say this so that you all know, the answer is a simple and resounding, FUCK NO! 

I could go on and on about the bands that we have playing all rally but I don't want to weigh this post down with that shit.  Just go on over the the Broken Spoke Saloon website for Daytona and check it out.  It will be constantly updated as will face book.  My page, the Spoke's page and Biketoberfest pages will all have non stop updates of how the day is progressing and what events are happening.  Don't forget though, regarding entertainment, the one and only Molly Hatchet will be performing and as I understand it, it is going to be a free show.... now how the hell do you top that shit?
So I need you fine folks to pack up your shit, get on those murdersickles we all love so much and get your asses to the Broken Spoke Saloon and come down and hang out and party with your pal Jack Shit!  There are a great many of you who have reached out to me, letting me know that you are coming down and I'm pumped!  For a great many of you, I have not had the honor to meet you in person yet and I am really looking forward to it! 

Ride safe and see you soon.  For those of you, my friends that can't make it down to Daytona;

Until we see each other again on the road,

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

Your friend,
Jack Shit
