Ever since i've moved down to southern california and now san diego, i've talked massive piles of shit on the area. So I decided to reload on my shit talking ammo. Took a quick latenite trip to the city with a good friend. No plans, get lost, find food, feel good. Twas a blast.

Red Dot I: Red Dot One. Like Star wars 4 was based on the odysey by homer. Prequil. Well mabey it was a quick car thrown together in a weeks time to make money from germans. In someways it gave its own life so that son of Dot could live on. R.D.2. had a good child hood. It ran wild and free in fields of green. Then it moved to the city and got plastic surgery and it became that cusin no one talks about. You know that one...I'll post a bunch more of the adolecent years of R.D.2. to come.

sloppy came down to ventura, just to fuck off. Drove his toyota beater truck. Thing drove over 1000 miles during that weekend no problem, besides the alternator charging at 16v. Went to LA on sat, el mirage for the races on sunday. 60 schwinn landspeed racing...milk crate class.i went for the tucked approach. Bike's are love.
Porno grabbed my new 64 honda cb77 from sf and took it down for me. This is after I put the new bars on it.
My life has turned into this scene. Dog, bike, messy room. Two days later the bed was flipped up against the wall so i could change the tires. It wasn't registered since 91 but we got it running. Rode it to work on sat and messed with the carbs all day. Got it running decent and was thinking about trying to ride to santa maria sat night for the new paso shit. On the way home from work it started puking massive amount of oil out of the head breather all over my leg and the trans. Great!!!!!!!!!
We left about 2am and didn't get to s.d. till 10ish. 3 tire blowouts, one shoe blowout. Redbull, shelled penuts, and bad brains kept me going.Left the lift a a gas station in long beach. Got a guy checkin on it till travis can go get it. See what I mean about looking like tweekers!
Perich Bros. new shop. and my new home.
How I felt after being up for about 30 hours, and then missing 3 trains to get home for work.
This is what i'll be seeing alot of in s.d. for a while. Grinding her down here boss...grinder down there luke.
I've been helping my good friend travis move shit to San Diego. We convinced my boss at work that the extra lift wasn't worth shit so she would sell it to travis for cheap. Hint: Don't move an 8000 lb. spoonlift with a wood floored car trailer.Indian Jones and the curse of the catapillar. Through the floor we go.
This whole load of shit made us look like tweakers. I was fallowing in the box van. Lost a tire, music was loud, kept driving. Uhaul's are called that for a reason, they haul!
Stopped at some gas station at 4am in la. Rearranged all the stuff. Had to leave the trailer. Casualty of the road.
LA has fucked up hwy's. The forklift trailer blew 2 tires in about an hour. We only got 10 miles from one blowout to the next.
tool guys suck. I don't want yer shit leave me alone. Snap on guy's gas tank fell from his truck and he was dragging it around. He has a truck full of tools, but he decided to fix it with tie down straps. Proof enough that all that shit you haul around is worthless. He didn't even have nice snap on tiedowns. He stole them from us. Don't get too dirty down there, wouldn't want you to get anything on ya. You'd have to buy some of that snap on body wash and luva combo to clean up.
Flew to portland.walked around in the rain...went back to the airport to sleep, got a 5150 called in on me by airport security. Don't take your socks and shoes off to let them dry out in the airport. No matter how cold your feet are. Went to burnside with dryfeet.
Picked up this hunk a shit 40ford and drove back to ventura with travis. Well he picked it up, i played the harmonica, and considered moving to portland.
Stopped in san jose on the way home. Visited "sloppy" sin and pat.
Pat's new house came with an all cement backyard, and a 4 car garage. And a bar in the basement. A gem in Man Jose.
I'm computer lazy. Not computer illiterate, just lazy. I've been up to alot, and a little simeltaniously. This is going to be pictoral diharea of what was on my cameras. Mabey next week i'll post some some decent pictures i've shot and not the point and push variety. Onward whore!

I shot this one weekend when Zap came to town to shoot, Travis, and strangely me, fucking around in Ventura for Cruisn' mag from Japan. I believe this was the weekend Zap wrote dirty japanese words all over the red dot. Zap's the best, showed me tones of camera tricks, and in turn we let him try welding for the first time. I think I have some of the pic's online somewhere. If you know what the article said let me know, me no speeka japanese. Not only in Arizona can you ride around in the back of pickup trucks.
Drafting large objects: good for gas, bad for radiator.
Hwy 101 on the way back from the 06' asphalt invitational.
