and as you know, that means 7 days until R4YL!!!!! (6 for the early birds that are pre-partying @ my shop thursday). This is the week that separates the men from boys, the talk from the walk, and the arm chair bandits from the real chopper jockeys. We know life comes up, and things happen, but its always funny to listen to the reasons that people who are 'all in' can't come at the last minute.
Everything is looking good on this end, shirts will be printed this weekend, camping arrangements are all squared away, maps/directions are printed, got a BIG pile of swag waiting, and my Triumph is actually on the road this year!!! Sounds like we're gonna have a really nice turnout this year, but excuse week could change that...lol. The East Coast looks to be well represented this year, with TWT Mike leading the East Coast FreighTrain on Thursday.
Thurs. Aug 4 > my shop, pre-run party, camping, i'll be cooking something(take your chances lol) My shop= Ada, OH
Frid. Aug 5> leaving my shop mid morning for Hillsboro, OH. Meet us @ my shop, or Hillsboro Friday evening. Live music ft. Ben Prestage, FREE camping, we'll do some cookin and of course drinkin.
Sat. Aug 6> hit the road when you get around en route to Floyds Knobs, IN. Same deal saturday night, minus the music, add RockPaperScissors swag giveaway and other shenanigans.
Its gonna be a helluva a good time, dont be that guy.

Mike from TWT has been one of our biggest supporters since day 1. He makes some really cool etched aluminum chopper parts as well as custom signs, coasters and belt buckles. He hooks us up with some commemorative plaques for the giveaway pile each year, and i'm told a belt buckle or two this year!!! Mike is also leading the East Coast freight train this year, so if you are coming from the East and looking for someone to ride with, drop me a line and i'll put you in contact with him! ...just don't fall asleep at the bus station.

got a big pile of goodies from the fine folks @ Lowbrow Customs! Bunch of shirts, stickers, banner, cloth covered plug wire set, transparent red fuel line, and seat spring bungs! Tyler and company will not be able to make it out for R4YL this year, because they will be getting prepared to GoFAST! on the salt flats with their race Triumphs! We really appreciate their support.

Chris (canada chris as we call him...) from Teeterbuilt has made the trek to R4YL since the first year, and we are stoked to have him on board as a sponsor this year!! He sent us one of his very cool Brass Enricher Knobs for CV carbs. These knobs are the perfect way to top off your ride! Look for more parts from Teeterbuilt in the near future!
