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 Past Is The Fuel For The Future

I awoke today to find that a friend had tagged me in a post on Facebook.  I laid in bed for a bit trying to muster up the energy and strength to stand up, ignore the pain from my over full bladder, stiff back and break my knees loose enough to move again and finally I hobbled my way to the bathroom.  It's amazing the joy that comes from taking that first epic piss of the day yet I never want to get out of bed to do it.  One day I guess I'll address that with a shrink!  I plopped back in bed, grabbed my phone and took a look at my messages and the things I was tagged in.  One item in particular that really caught my eye was the photo above.  This photo was taken 2 years ago in Sturgis while I was filming an interview, if memory serves me correctly for the Discovery Channel's Road To Sturgis, I think it was one of the final interviews aired on the show.  I can't remember who actually took this photo but I love it.

I love it for the obvious reasons, Sturgis, my knuckle, the world famous Broken Spoke Saloon in the background but I love this memory for so many other reasons that may not be so obvious.  This was the first time Diane made it to Sturgis, I made so many new friends and got to connect again with so many that I've made over the years.  It brought back incredible memories of entertaining people, of massive storms that had the potential of destroying the event and the shows, I got to party my ass off with one of my all time favorite bands and see some of the most intense concerts ever.  I had the tremendous honor to share my thoughts on bikes, bikers and rallies with the world and when you survive 17 hour days for 11 days you come out with a feeling that is second to none.

As we approach rally season again this year and with so many people that I know and love either heading down to Daytona or already there I can't help but think of all the events in the past and smile. It makes me think about how this coming rally season will be and what I can do to make each event better and cause people to leave with giant smiles on their faces and memories that will last a life time. Winter can be a tough time for those of us who count on the joy and freedom of two wheels and believe me, living out west we don't suffer anywhere near the way the rest of the country does but it still sucks the life out of you.  As spring is "springing" here I feel a new energy and excitement for the upcoming year and I can't wait to hit the ground running.  Okay, to be honest, I can't wait to hit the ground riding but I promise I'll run when I get off the bike!  I hope you are all as pumped up about riding season as I am and I look forward to seeing you all out on the road this year!  For those of you in Daytona or on your way, make memories, ride fast, take chances and get home to your families safe and sound!

Till we see each other again,

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

Your pal,
Jack Shit
