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!

Sweet 4lb 3oz Baby Jesus, it's only day 3!

Everyone is sending me messages and texts asking how Bike Week is going for me at the Dirty Dogg Saloon and I simply tell them, it's okay I guess!  YEAH RIGHT!  It's better than Disney Land!  We are only beginning day 3 and already I can barely walk and you know what, I don't care!  We kicked off Bike Week with a quick gathering over at Knockout in Mesa where they tapped a keg for us, shot some pics, hung out and checked out some of the baddest bikes ever to hit the pavement!  These guys got some operation going on over there!  They were smart enough to see the writing on the wall in the bike industry and made the segway from just building one off customs to opening a full shop offering everything from builds to simple tire and oil changes.  At 4:30 sharp, well sort of, we lined up the bikes and about 40 of us rode up to the Dogg!
Once we arrived back home at the Dogg we got Knockout set up to show off some of those amazing bikes and just hang out and meet and greet so many people who have always wanted to say "hello" and really never get the chance, again, these guys are first class!  We started off that afternoon in a nice quiet way with just about 100 people or so in the bar and I thought, ah yes, this is perfect, a nice slow way to get the party started and "get my feet wet" so to speak.  Although I have hosted or emcee'd bike events and rallies for the better or should I say BEST part of my life but each and every place and event I host is different.  The whole, roll in to this event easy went right out the door within an hour!  Within two you could barely move, within three I found myself standing atop a booth just to watch over the mayhem.  I was told to just pretty much hang out and just have a good time.  Welcome friends new and old and not worry about getting on the mic..... that lasted about three hours and I couldn't stay off it.  I only went on for a few minutes but quickly worked the crowd in to a frenzy.  Having five beautiful women standing on the bar next to you don't hurt either!

As you can plainly see, it was so packed in there that we had to pack everyone in really tight!  At some point it was difficult to even get between some folks!  Believe me, I tried with all I could to squeeze in a few times but to no avail!  We had an amazing night that first Saturday which officially I am not even sure if Bike Week had even started.  Like I said, that nice slow start that we had anticipated didn't exactly happen.  I joked with the owner and said, maybe Bean're and I over promoted, he said there is no such thing.  This is how you KICKSTART an event.

We have got so much fun planned for all of our friends old and new this Bike Week that it's hard to even lay it all out for you guys.  If you are in Arizona, get your ass to the one and only Dirty Dogg Saloon, if you are not in Arizona, there is still time, pack your shit, get on that bike and GET YOUR ASSES HERE!  Like I told a friend who sent me a message from Ohio, don't worry, we'll wait for you to get here!

Now yesterday, I had the great honor of helping out an amazing organization and with the full support of the boss at the Dogg!  Not only did the Dirty Dogg sponsor the event but they even sent Bean're and I out on the ride and to help raise money, awareness and the level of stupidity to an all time high and that is just what we did!  The organization is called LIBERTY WILDLIFE and they hosted the Born 2B Wild event.  This is a private group, they accept no money from the government and they do it all on their own with long hours and lots of volunteers.  They rescue wounded animals native to the Sonoran Desert, give them top notch medical care and when they are ready, release them back in to the wild.  They don't keep them, or put them in a zoo somewhere and they sure as shit don't sell them!  Yesterday they hosted a dice run and I was stone blown away with the number of people who attended.  There was just short of 300 bikes on the ride and an insane amount of people at the final stop.  At the beginning of the event and along the way and at the final stop, they had these spectacular animals on display so that everyone could see just what they have helped.

This is before most of the pack even showed up.  Inside that jeep are two majestic birds of prey.  A golden eagle and a bald eagle that have been rescued from certain death and given a new life.  Some animals can't be returned to the wild because of their injuries, they would never survive, they are kept, loved and taken care of at great expense forever!

We raised some much needed money, gave away some utterly incredible prizes, prizes like I have never before seen just given away with a fifty fifty ticket and in the end, we released back in to the wild two red tailed hawks!  The hawks were released in the memory and the honor of Kimmy Chapman Lauer, owner and editor of the Arizona Biker Information Guide!  Kimmy was loved and more importantly RESPECTED by everyone who has anything to do with this life style that we lead.  She was known throughout the USA and her loss was senseless and tragic.  When I have the time to do her justice, I will write and tell you more about Kimmy, how she was lost and more importantly how she lived with L,L,H & R for each and every person she met in her travels.  Her loss has left a massive void in our community that may never be filled!  So if you are on a bike, watch your ass and if you are in a cage, by God, please pay attention, bikes are everywhere and it only takes one moment of not paying attention to take some one's life!  IS IT WORTH SENDING THAT FUCKING TEXT right then and there?  I didn't think so. 

On that very first day we partied, more than 50 people came to see me at the Dogg and I am forever in your debt for your incredible support!  I don't mean 50 showed up at the bar, I mean 50 people who I know personally and a few that I met that day in real life for the first time ever, finally, walked through those doors!  Friends old and new came to hang out and party and I can hardly put in to words what your support means to me!  Join us all week at the Dogg and come see for yourself why this place and it's people are so very special to me!  Thanks for coming out and I will see you this week and whatever your plans are, make sure you come out on Saturday to party with us at the Spring Fling and we'll show you how we do it DOGGY STYLE!

You may walk through the door of the Dogg with your best pair of panties on but that sure as hell does not mean that you will be walking out the door of the Dogg with them still on!

Come in any day or every single day, we will be there waiting for you!  Only two of the photos in this blog were taken by me and I want to give props to Julie Turner Salvante for all of the rest of these Stellar Shots!  Some people just have a natural eye for "seeing" the shot before it's taken and she's got it!  Get your ass down to the Dogg and who knows, maybe you too will be immortalized in one of these amazing photos!


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

Your friend,
