The calm before the storm

Its been warm as fuck in Chicagoland as of late. Went over to the garage and started to mess around with some other bars and risers I had laying around. Think I found the winning combination.

Yesterday 50 degrees, today 29 and snow....old man winter has finally arrived.

Let it all hang out

Felt good to get out the other day and toss down a couple beers with my friends and talk motorcycles, summer time plans, and all the runs and events we hope to attend this year. Both of the above bike pictures are from previous violation tours. We've all been getting amped up for it. Lots of people saying they are gonna show up. Guess we will have to wait and see. Dont miss it. Cant imagine its been 4 years since the first one. Met alot of good friends along the way, and we still keep in contact. Its the common bond between brothers. FOREVER TWO WHEELS!!!

Tentative Route for VT


Looking at the map today. As long as all the roads are smooth on my dry run. The Violation Tour run will be heading out from Savanna IL, crossing over into Iowa through Dubuque. We will follow the Mississippi River north crossing into Prarie Du Chien WI to continue following the mighty miss. The short ride from Prarie Du Chien up to LaCrosse is something I have done before and its awesome. Before we hit Lacrosse we will go East through Wildcat Mountain State Park area, ending up in Mauston WI. Thanks for everyones input on roads and etc. Its only January and Im getting the itch.


Thanks to my friend Darci Buttera, we have our final camping site for the Violation Tour. She put me in touch with her buddy Pete who has 7 acres in the middle of nowhere near Mauston,WI. From what I gather theres a river, waterfall, and some cliff diving to be had. I'd imagine it to be just as majestic as this beautiful unicorn that you see above.

Tentative plans
Friday June 15th, Pre Party in Savanna IL Free camping behind the bar

Saturday June 16th, 3-5 hour scenic ride through some of the best WI backroads you've ever ridden.

I really cannot wait, I think this years run will be of the better ones.

FINALLY DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So 1 1/2 years later and I have finally finished. I've been going through a bunch of shit like most people do where I had to get my life together and take care of what is important. Got a new job that has been taking up most of my time and the rest goes to my 9 year old son and old lady. So with that sliver of free time that I have, I was able to finish up up my 77 Ironhead.  I'm soo happy how this bike turned out. The down side is that it is the middle of winter and I'm dying to lay down some miles.  I gotta give a shout out to a few people. Bobby "the leg" aka tri pod,  from King Kustoms out of Lombard IL did most of my welding, let me use his machines/tools, and made/designed a sweet oil tank bracket for me. Dave York from KDX Auto Painting out of Lakemoor IL laid down the beautiful 3 stage Rootbeer. Dale from Dales M/C out of Island Lake IL helped me out with the engine, and other little stuff. Like I said, finally it is done and I am looking forward to getting some miles ridden with those who I am close with and new!  Oh, I almost forgot to thank Joshua Sebastian. Even though I re-covered the solo seat, thanks for handing it my way and for giving me stories to tell!
