nicotine and peanut butter

Five days
Four nights
One van
One 1970's Northface mummy bag
One bitchn little blue framer
Three classes
Three trophies and a 20$ bill for pro purse.

Wednesday i get the boss man to let me go early and with the van loaded I head west to Utah to see the old man and have a proper thanksgiving feast. To say my dad lives simple in his camper alongside the colorado river is to say B.B. King plays the blues, So it was damn rad to have a full blown turkey dinner with all the fixings including good company.... But of course i had to duck out of their early because their was three days of indoor flattracking racing seventeen hrs away. Me and the dog made it to denver after dropping off some cargo (my river bottomed honda 100) at Ian's new pad. got me a few hrs of sleep and drove the rest of the way across colorado's less than voluptious side and all of nebraska's flat as a carpender's dream corn fields. Just like in the movies; Sign up opened at 3:00 pm and i showed up at 3:30 pm.
Fucking tacky ass track was super good and my new framer was a true delight. I felt like i was skidding my bicycle as a kid in the driveway.  won the vintage am class and 2nd in the vintage pro.
Cowboy of Tommy's Triumphs showed with PBR and whiskey and did a dame fine jop helping me in the pits and as always getting drunk as fuck. Cheers to new friends. Flattrack is where its at. FTW.
 More of the same Sunday. Great racing and holy fucking big baby jesus do i love my new bike!
Hit the road after the races last night and made it to a homo friendly rest stop in the middle of bum fuck nebraska and slept in 20 deg frigid as witch titties cold with Baja dog inside my fart sack. it was so cold thier wasn't even any creepy rest stop poofters poking around the van. yay. woke up, made tea, ran out of stove gas, drank cold tea and drove the last12 hrs home.
Their is another one in two weeks in houston tx. only 18hrs away. I cant hardly fuckin wait.
I forgot my brain bucket but my buddy Bomber had a spare child's that fit like shit. perfect.

For sale. hit me up for contact info. she wouldnt fit in my van.



Nice looking can am champion framer.

one of the best working (not looking) shoes i have seen.

My beloved condo. everything a man needs in my home away from home.
keep it sideways, keep it pinned and, never leave your doors unlocked at a rest stop.

Tattoos are fun



I figured i'd share this beauty before i inevitably use some dirt and rocks to erase it from forearm. The blacklight ink may be invisible in daylight and potentially cancerous, but if i ever find myself if a rave full of horny naked colorado girls, i bet it will all be worth it

Spike shreds

Five years ago i met Eric (spike) Rhoten at a WORCS race. I was three weeks away from moving to vegas for a job at a motorcycle accessory shop and he talked me into staying in coloRADo and moving to his home town of montrose and he set me up with a job at the local dealership. since then i have done a lot of chasing his dust and his ability to shred lightning quick through any terrain is always amazing. Last week he won the night race at the AMA Enduro cross in vegas for the second time. He has had Enduro X national number 4 and also worn the WORCS pro number 8. so its purdy cool to see his Team WOR stickers on his hand guards. Next week is his last week at the dealership i work at so work will suck even more. Happy trails Spike! buuuuraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaap!

What happens next?





it didn't end up getting documented, and my memory of this day is certainly gone, but my guess would be that the next 4 photos would have looked very similar to these ones

If only taking pictures was equally as fun


Our dirtbiking plans got rained out on sunday, so after youtubing and garaging all morning with my homies, I went to the bike park to see if there was any chance that the special granola eating dirt had dried out enough to be ridable. In the end, I proved overly optimistic and instead of shredding any gnar, I tiptoed around with my trusty pentax to capture a good angle of the booters to savor in my mind until another day. bummer. but for the record, a pitbike could have handled that mud just fine.

true blue love



This little fire cracker is begging me to go racing. im ready to sell a fuckin kidney for gas money.
Look at them virgin grips for crying out fuckin loud! I cant wait!

new project

I scored this dismemberd remains heap of a 05crf450x for zip, zero, nadda. The plan is to build a flat tracker/ Pikes peak racer so i dont have to keep giving my confussed dirt bike a sex change every time i want to go slide some corners on my low rider, high compression set up. it will be like having more than one pair of under ware home slice. 


scored these flat spotted aluminum mags out of the trash bin. The 2012  Pikes Peak 450 class will be combined with the supermoto class now and since it is all tarmac now i might as well try and stuff these 17s up in my stead and rip the pavement up like a mad beaver in a tree farm. gona have to chop and weld in some crazy adapters. might be futile thrifty effort of fail but i gotta try.  any one know if a 4'' rim will fit in the swing swangin swinging arm of a crf?
