Confessions of the ego
Well, It is that time of year again. The van is loaded and ready to roll down the road to that 14,0110 foot mountain. America's mountain. The place where that lady wrote the words to America the Beautiful. The Second oldest motor race in this spacious sky having darn country. The race to the clouds. This is the first time I have not had the van packed to the Las Vegas styled rope lights and mirrored ceiling. This Is also the first time I have not had to stay up late prepping the bike. I have not done these things because as you all who read this "Hey look at me!" motorbike blog know, I am racing a Ronin. And not just any Ronin but a Pikes Peak Special Ronin built form an EBR 1190 with a master level of attention to detailing. No expenses were spared with material or the components. The top level computer aided engineering mixed with the kind of craftsmanship only expert hands can create, And wham! The most exciting and pleasing race bike to ride that I have ever known. I feel like a lot of great people have stepped up to help me this year and for them I am immensely grateful. I know that now all I have to do is ride the bike and that is what I love to do most. Thanks Sideburn Gary for making the cosmic network align, Without Ronin this would not be happening. I am especially thankful for Johnny the bike's golden wrencher. Thanks to Cosmic Cowboy for the team shirts and I am sure the moonshine that will be supplied as usual at the Lone Duck campgound a.k.a. my paradice. Nate at Blood Nickel for making art out of the leathers and even at the last minute. Hot Carl with the Wolf Brigade blog to the side has been my buddy, road race instructor and he to has a cool guy Ducati ride on the hill this year. Shit, with out all my beer drinkin, fart sniffin, throttle cable stretching buddies, I wouldn't be who I am with out you! My patient love Cookie, Thank you for helping me train for this race and be prepared mentally and physicly. I have not felt this well for years, I would be forever lost with out you. Fuckin shitty titty gang bang and PEACE!!!!!
