mike d. gave me a call and told me to get up off my ass for a bbq at grant`s for some of the riders that came out for the show. illinois, wisconsin, seattle and japan were some of the places folks showed up from to enjoy the weekend festivities. takada, of deluxie, and masa, with a couple more or their friends joined us with alot of smiles and that`s COOOOOOOL. will brought his buddies from chicago over. the chino boys, josh and shawn, always a laugh with a comic schtick, a fella from chico-moto and his gal on a sweet little custom from seattle, a fella named rico. others that i didn`t get to talk to because my medicine started to wear off. i should have doubled up.
