ovember 11th our country will celebrate Veteran’s Day. In this issue we’ve featured Vets both on our cover & in the centerfolds. We honor the men and women, past & present, who fought to preserve our freedoms. Thank you from the CREW, many of whom are Vets!

ov. Nikki Haley said “It’s not a good day in South Carolina” in a news conference reporting an estimated 3.6 million Social Security numbers and 387,000 credit and debit card numbers were exposed when the SCDOR was hacked into. Just 16,000 of these credit card numbers were not encrypted; however, none of the Social Security numbers were. For perspective, there are almost 4.7 million South Carolinians, according to the 2012 U.S. Census, meaning 3 out of 4 of our Social Security numbers were compromised. If you have paid taxes in SC since 1998, you are urged call 1-866578-5422 to get an activation code then go to: www.protectmyid.com/scdor to see if your info has been compromised. If so, the state will provide a year of identity-theft protection and credit monitoring free of charge.

Harley

__________

VIN Numbers ridged frame, it should be custom titled. It should not have a factory vin number on the frame or state it is a Harley on the title. There was one rare exception on a few models in 1979 when Harley attempted a new number system where the frame vin and engine numbers didn’t match. This was a problem and was quickly dropped in the same year. In 1980, the 17 digit vin number was introduced as a full vin number on the frame and a partial number on the engine case. It remains this way today. With cooler weather comes more There are also tranny and fork numbers time for wrench’n on projects. Most of that are related to, but not matching the the Billski crew and family are already frame vin number on a Harley. deep into our winter projects, but we have seen alot of questionable vin Also take note that the characters in numbers while hunting bikes. The the vin are proper. Harley has always number one rule I follow when looking used a font in their letters and numbers at a bike, is that it has a title clear of that is not available in store bought liens in the seller’s name. Second is stamp sets. If a vin number doesn’t that the vin number is matching the title appear with the proper font, it could and stamped in the proper location and have been restamped on another frame. font. NOBODY except for the factory has the Pre 1970 Harleys are titled by the motor only. A pre 70 frame should NOT have a vin on the frame unless for some reason it was retitled as a Custom Built using an aftermarket frame. The early model vin should start with two digits telling the year of manufacture. Next will be a letter, or more commonly, a series of letters that gives the model type. This will be followed by numbers again that will show the production number. In 1970, Harley began putting vin numbers on the frame. This means that the title goes with the frame, not the motor, though the numbers would have matched from the factory. So, for example, if it is a 70 something sportster and is in an old aftermarket Page 12

right(under law) to stamp a factory vin number to a frame.

Custom constructed or custom built title bikes can be a bit more difficult to figure out, as the states seem to vary in their laws regarding the vin numbers they issue and placement of the vin on the bike. Homework would be involved to be sure the process was followed correctly. Remember, just because a seller has a title that matches the bike, doesn’t mean it’s all legit. If it’s a Shovelhead and the Saddle-Up & Lets-Ride title numbers match

the frame and motor, but the title says it’s a Harley Aermacchi 350, then just walk away. Though Harley did buy the Aermacchi company and produced bikes under the Harley name, they were dirt bikes and enduros, not shovelheads. Do the homework. Somebody could have stamped the numbers on just cause the title they found said Harley.

Angie Stone Columbia SC Native Ms Angie Stone

By: Da Don ~ Sports Bike Editor

Angie Stone from right here in South Carolina is a Grammy Awardn o m i n a t e d American R&B, hip-hop, neosoul singer and actress. Stone’s music possesses a clear old school soul music sound. Ms Stone is not only a singer but a talented songwriter and record producer. I had the pleasure of spending the day with her at the fundraiser for the Sally R. Brasley Giving Hands Scholarship. This was one of Ms Stone’s many contributions to the Columbia area. While talking with Ms Stone, I discovered her love to ride. I had to get an inside scoop on her new album, “Rich Girl”. I was given the privilege of sitting down and spending some time with her. Here is what Angie Stone told Carolina Chrome Magazine! Da Don: Let’s talk about your new album “Rich Girl” is your sixth solo album. How was it working on this particular album? Angie Stone: Awesome. This album put me in a great place. It was very rewarding. The growth that you hear in the project is that I wanna bring you Angie Stone, but the next level. Da Don: Most of us know you as an R&B singer. You also do a lot Page 14

of songwriting, production and A&R. Angie Stone: I’ve always done it. A lot of people don’t know what I do. People think that’s how I eat because I make records but I make far more money as songwriter than from being a singer. Da Don: You chose “Do What U Gotta Do” as one of the first singles from the “Rich Girl” CD. How did you come up with “Rich Girl” and choose that particular single? Angie Stone: I got the title for the new album “Rich Girl” from Y’Anna Crawley. She came to me with two songs, “Rich Girl” and “Do What U Gotta Do”. Once I heard how perfect these were for me, I was ecstatic. “Rich Girl” is not about richness in money but love of the Lord. Da Don:Track 7 is an interlude by Malcolm Jamal-Warner, Theo from the Cosby Show. How did this come about? Angie Stone: Malcolm and I are good friends and we wanted to work together, and I think his voice is phenomenal! When he started playing the bass line and he Saddle-Up & Lets-Ride

went on the microphone, he blew me away, and I just wanted the world to hear that. Da

Don: I personally “Guilty” off your album. What is inspiration behind particular song?

like new the this

Angie Stone: I also love “Guilty”. It’s about a relationship between me and another with a never ending love. It doesn’t mean we are still together but that love will always be there. Da Don: I can listen to your music all day long. I told you one of my favorites, what is one of your favorites? Angie Stone: I would have to say “I Can’t Take It”. I wrote this song backwards. Da Don: On the cover of “Unexpected” you were on a motorcycle. Do you ride? Angie Stone: I love motorcycles. The bike I used on my album cover wasn’t mine, I ride a custom 2010 Spyder.


The Zac Brown Southern Ground M usic F estival

Charleston, SC By: JuJu Bright

You couldn’t have asked for a more perfect weekend at Blackbaud Stadium in Daniel Island. Oct 20-21 was all about the music. Some of the most talented musicians in the world gathered for the 2nd Annual Zac Brown Southern Ground Music Festival. Zac Brown and a few friends came together in the name of music to raise money to build Camp Southern Ground. This Camp will be a 500 acre facility located in Fayette County, Georgia. The Mission Statement of the camp is a simple one. “To operate a camp to allow children to overcome academic, social and emotional difficulties so they may reach their full potential by providing them with the opportunity and tools necessary to achieve excellence in all facets of their lives.” This camp has been a vision and a passion of Zac’s for awhile. He himself attended youth camps and eventually became a camp counselor. The camps will enhance the confidence and abilities of these children by offering such activities from Zip lining and Organic Gardening to Arts and Crafts. Yes, there will be music and much, much more! Also at this event were many local food & retail vendors fitting in well with the feel of this festival. Organic clothing, handmade jewelry, and much more were offered to the attendees. The food ranged from local BBQ to pizza to Zac Browns personal Chef Rusty, who offered some great dishes from Zac’s very own cooking bus, he uses on tour for his now famous “Eat and Greets”. For those who wanted to dig a little deeper in their pockets than the general admission tickets VIP seats were treated to private tables stage side and were served

Senior Music Editor Music News & Reviews

dinner prepared by Chef Rusty. The musical lineup was more than impressive. When you are Grammy award winning artist such as Zac Brown Band, you have a lot of talented friends. Performances began at noon and ended at 11:pm with music on two stages non-stop. Everything from Bluegrass to Reggae and all points in between, There were too many performers to name throughout the day, fans were treated to such legends as the Charlie Daniels Band, The Wailers (the late reggae great Bob Marley’s band), and also some of the hottest to the music scene like Grace Potter and the Nocturnals and a CHROME fav Blackberry Smoke. When Zac Brown Band took the stage that the 23,000+ fans were on their feet. Playing hit after hit, Zac Brown and the boys gave a show that not one person could ever say they didn’t get their money’s worth. Each band member being an expert at his craft and Clay Cook, well, I think he can play ANY instrument, just left the crowd in awe of the raw talent displayed. They not only played most all of their hits, but treated the crowd to renditions of Aerosmith’s “Sweet Emotion” and “Into the Mystic”, a Van Morrison classic. During their performance, many of their famous friends joined them on stage. Hometown favorite and newest member to the Grand Ol Opry Darius Rucker stopped in. The crowd roared when he emerged and then sang along as Darius performed “Rock Me”. Zac and the boys also treated the crowd to “Neon”, the John Mayer hit with John Mayer himself taking the stage. Mayer, although not able to sing due to a recent throat surgery, treated the crowd to his unmistakable guitar riffs It was when southern rock legend Gregg Allman www.CarolinaChromeMagazine.com

took the stage with Zac and John Mayer that I realized I was witnessing something special. Gregg sounded as good as ever doing his classic hit “Midnight Rider”. Mayer offered his magical hands on the guitar solos of this performance. Yes, folks this was musical history. Allman, Brown and Mayer also performed “Statesboro Blues”, one of Allman’s most famous tunes and had the crowd rockin. As a Music Editor, I have covered a lot of shows with various artists and different genres of music. I must say this festival is something special. This is an annual event which I will not miss. If you are a music lover, put this festival on your bucket list. It was one of the most entertaining, well organized events I have covered. For the cost of the ticket, you will never top the caliber of entertainment. But more importantly, the cause, to make Camp Southern Ground a reality. They’re getting closer each day to this goal. Need info or to make a donation to Camp Southern Ground, please visit their website at www.http:// campsouthernground.org.

Tattooing By: Phillip at Inkworks Tattoo

Hello my name is Phillip Sierputowski, I have been tattooing for about 6 years now. I work down in Fountain Inn at Inkworks tattoo parlor. Tattooing is one of my favorite things in the world. I believe I could tattoo all day every day and be a perfectly happy person. For me tattooing is not just a job it is my passion. There is nothing that anyone can do that is more of an honor to me than choosing me to be their tattoo artist. I love being able to sit down with a client and plan out a sleeve, a back piece, or help put together a memorial piece for a lost loved one. The collaboration of two minds coming together can be a very unique, interesting

and downright awesome thing. For me I try to make every tattoo better than the last, always trying to outdo myself. I love the idea of tattooing people from all over knowing that my art is all over the world. So come on down to Inkworks and see me or any of the guys here and see if we can’t send you home happy with some brand new ink.

Jesus caught his fish, then he cleaned them. Hey to tell you guys a little about myself and my life. I am, Cathy Knight, a born again child of God, I have an awesome new life. I just turned 53 and have a better life now than I ever had. I was a drug addict and liked to drink. God took all that away. God’s grace and mercy has made me the person I am today. My son has been in two very bad accidents of not knowing if he would live or die. Because of God he is alive today. I was in a bad marriage, got a divorce. My mom died and then my dad died, it was a very bad time in my life. But that is not why I was an addict. I just really loved to party and some of the company I kept did too. After my mom died I realized that all I had in my life was my two kids and they didn’t like me too much. I was dying inside, I had no one and nowhere to turn except to God. And all I had to do was to ask Him to forgive me and He did. My life changed so much. God took my addiction away. He also took the bitterness, anger, hatefulness, coldness and sadness away. God gave me love, mercy, grace and joy along with many, many blessings. God gave me victory over me!!! Through the years of drugs and alcohol, I never once thanked God for the many times He got me home safely. I always chalked it up

as luck. Now I know I got home because of God and only God. I am so blessed today in many ways. From the people in my life, to my church and to the best job I have ever had. I have learned that behind every tear is a smile, and behind the In The Wind With Christ, rain there is sunshine. Rev. Cotton Pate God has promised Chrome Crew me that he will never [803] 475-9165 leave me nor forsake me. God is the great helper and the great comforter. In Matthew 9:22 God says “daughter, be of good comfort. Thy faith had made thee whole”. I love God, I have so much faith and for the first time in my life I can say I am whole. And I thank God every day, many times a day for what He does for me and my family. And what He has taken away from me. I was alone and brokenhearted. There is nothing the Lord can’t do. He is my past, present and future. Thank you Lord for your many, many blessings. Let your light shine through me. James 4:10 says “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord and He shall lift you up”. And that is what He did for me. God saved me. If I stayed on my knees day and night I could not thank Him enough. Do I still have problems? Absolutely. I miss my daughter, my son still has problems every day, but my faith in God gets me through. LIFE IS GOOD, GOD IS BETTER!!!!

November is one of the busiest months in the year. Everyone is getting ready for Thanksgiving and shopping for Christmas. Clemson and USC are both preparing for the biggest Rivalry Game in SC. I have to support my alumni and say Go Tigers! Winter is approaching and it’s time to make a decision. Either we are putting the motorcycle away until spring, or sticking it out and preparing bike and body for some serious all-weather riding. I personally choose to ride so let’s take that route. First things first, preparing your body for the cold. Since most of us aren’t very active on a motorcycle, our body isn’t doing much to produce heat on its own to counteract the cold. That means we have to do everything we can to insulate the body in order to keep what precious heat that we do produce actually on our body, and not floating off in the cold winter air. Hands are one of the most exposed parts of the body when riding. Therefore, choosing the right gloves to wear is very important. You don’t need them too thick but you do need them to be thermal and hold heat in. There are a lot of winter gloves on the market. The better made they are, the longer your hands will stay warm. Over 50 degrees most peoples’ hands will stay warm for the duration of the ride, but once the temps start dipping into the 40s, there are no gloves on the market that will allow you to retain heat beyond an hour or so. Why is this? Your fingers have the least amount of warming abilities of anything on your body when it comes to motorcycling. What you wear next to your skin will play a critical factor in keeping you warm when it’s cold out. A good base layer Page 36

is the key to staying warmer longer. You’ll want a layer that will wick any moisture your body produces away from your skin. Cotton underwear and t-shirts won’t, so nix them from your list. Wool and other natural fabrics do an okay job but the best performance we’ve seen comes from synthetics like polyester, rayon, lycra and otherwise. Blends tend to be the best. It’s important not to get into a blend designed for active sports like football and soccer. These blends are designed to literally suck moisture from your skin so if you’re sitting on a motorcycle all day you can expect a lot of itching with a product like Under Armor. Love Doctors M/C don’t allow members to ride without boots or helmets. These are very important especially in winter conditions. Before we go to boots, I’ve learned a neat little trick. Before we can put our socks on it’s a good idea to apply some foot powder first. We want to minimize the moisture your feet produce so sprinkle some good foot powder into your socks before slipping them on over your feet. This keeps our feet dry and you don’t want to be sweaty/wet and cold. I suggest layers for the winter. Long sleeve Ts, jacket liner, jacket and riding pants. Don’t buy low cost gear if you want to stay water tight. Spend a little more, ask around and then purchase a reliable brand and model of jacket and pants. Now that you are ready to ride, make sure your motorcycle is ready for the winter rides. Here’s Da Don’s 5 Steps to Winterizing! 1. Inspect for Damage: After the months of hard riding, any mean machine would have picked its fair

Saddle-Up & Lets-Ride


Cont.Pg 36

share of stresses, dirt, tar, grease and grime. If ignored, you take the risk of their presence eating into the exterior surfaces and causing structural damage, which may need professional attention. 2. Change oil and filter: Drain and replace the old dirty motor oil, which is prone to becoming acidic and harmful to the vehicle and it can in turn wreak havoc to the performance and durability of your engine. Change the filter while you are at it. Using thinner oil during the cold months will improve your bike’s performance, especially during start-up, but check your owner’s manual for recommendations. Some manufacturers recommend only one weight of oil, no matter what the temperature. 3. Fill up gas tank plus add fuel stabilizer: Moisture is the nemesis of your metal gas tank and to avoid the condensation that is likely with the wintry temperatures, you need to fill the tank up and add a fuel stabilizer to prevent it from turning into muck. 4. Lubricate cables: Lubricate all moving parts such as the cleaned chain drive, throttle can clutch cables, other linkages as well as its pivot points i.e. shifter, kickstand and foot-pegs with recommended lubricants. 5. Winter tires: If you fit sticky race-type tires in the summer, be sure to switch back to ordinary street tires during colder months. They develop grip at lower temperatures and reach effective operating temperatures much more quickly.

Da Don’s Safety Tip

Hypothermia is insidious. If you ignore early symptoms, like uncontrolled shivering and numb fingers or toes, slow reaction times or fuzzy thinking, you could get into trouble, fast. Wind chill adds to the danger, so make sure you stop frequently, enjoy a hot beverage and allow your body to warm up. www.CarolinaChromeMagazine.com

Paws to Salute Our 4-Legged Friends By: Marli, Santee Chrome Crew

I don’t get paid to ride my motorcycle, so like most folks, I also have a day job, gotta keep gas in the scoot. After chatting with RubyRed one afternoon and sharing a little about my work (w/Columbia Animal Shelter), she asked if I would put together a few quick tips, facts, etc. for each issue about the world of animal care and control and caring for our pets. So, here we go..#13 As we take time to appreciate all of our veterans and the sacrifices they have made for us, I thought it would be fitting to high light this special crew of soldiers. Our animal veterans. Since the beginning of time, animals have been used in wartime. Dogs in particular. In researching this article I read a quote that said, “When we go to war, they go to war”. And it’s true. From the Egyptians to the Middle Ages, where dogs and horses wore full metal armor, to current wars. Regardless of when or where, animals have served as useful instruments, loyal companions and fierce warriors. America’s first war dog was Stubby, a bull terrier of unknown origin, who served 18 months overseas during WWI. Stubby who began hanging out at a soldier training facility in New Haven, CT became pals with all the men, but really bonded with Cpl. Robert Conroy. When it was time to ship off to France on a troop ship, Cpl. Conroy snuck Stubby on board. Never formally trained, Stubby quickly learned to detect incoming shells before the men could and would alert them by his actions that it was time to take cover. His big moment came one quiet evening while the troops were napping when he detected a German Spy who had been prowling through the trenches and captured the man all by himself. Stubby would have many other great moments and by war’s end would get to shake hands (or paws) with President Woodrow Wilson. He also received awards and became one of the most famous dogs in the US.

By WWII the US would realize the need to formally train dogs for war. By war’s end 10,425 dogs would be trained. They were trained as sentry dogs, sled & pack dogs, search and rescue dogs, scout and patrol dogs, messenger dogs and mine dogs. Some were even trained to parachute out of planes. In fact, war dog, Jaint de Mortimormey reputedly made more jumps during WWII than any man.Most of these dogs would serve on US soil, but nearly 2,000 were sent over seas. They would save countless lives performing vital duties such as delivering messages racing through trenches, shell holes, chemical gases and countless other obstacles. They also searched out wounded soldiers and then brought back help. They alerted troops to ambushes, mines and other such dangers. And they came in all shapes and sizes. Even small terriers know at “ratters” were used to keep rats out of muddy trenches and were used to deliver cigarettes to the troops. Some of the more common breeds used were Doberman Pinchers (commonly known as the “Devildogs” with the USMC - a name the Marines earned during WWI while fighting against the Germans), German Shepherds, Labradors, Collies, Malamutes, Huskies, and others. Even mixed breed dogs were welcomed. What mostly mattered was temperament and courage of heart. One of the first trained dogs to be shipped overseas was Chips (a Shepherd/ Collie/sled dog mix). Shortly after reaching a beachhead on Sicily, the soldiers stopped for a rest in an abandoned pillbox. Also tired and needing the rest, Chips could not relax. Instead he raced across a stretch of unknown land. As he did he was shot. Ignoring the pain, he launched himself into an enemy machine gun nest. As he disappeared into the fray, all went quiet. When his comrades arrived, Chips was found holding one enemy soldier by the throat while five other terrified men stood still with their arms raised. Chips would serve in eight bitter campaigns, www.CarolinaChromeMagazine.com

eventually get to come home and was honored by the men he served with. He would also go on to act as a sentry for President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill. He would eventually be assigned to the soldier who escorted him across the Atlantic and received a formal discharge. He went on to live a civilian life of ease but later died at the age of six years due to complications from war injuries. Chips was one of the lucky ones. Many others would never make it home and today, many still, serve in the field of battle. Dogs aren’t the only animals to bravely serve their country. Other animals that also deserve our salute are War Horses, Pack Horses, Mules and Donkeys, Cows, Oxen and Reindeer, Army Pigeons, Mice and Spiders. That’s right, spiders. Optical companies employed spiders during war times so their silk could be used as cross hairs on bombs and other surveying instruments. A few other notables are: Bobo, who led a reconnaissance patrol safely into German held territory; Wolf, who alerted the 27th Infantry of the enemy 150 yards away allowing them to prepare for an attack. After taking shrapnel, Wolf remained quiet and continued the fight saving his crew three more times. Despite care, he would later die of his wounds; and Daisy, who after her Norwegian ship was torpedoed in an icy sea swam from man to man, licking their faces throughout the night giving them comfort until help arrived the next morning. The stories are countless of the brave acts performed by so many great animals. So please take a moment and salute our two and four legged veterans. Page 43


Ask a Lawyer

It is a true honor for me to write for the Carolina Chrome magazine. My thanks to Ruby Red and Chris Grundner, my paralegal who rides, for giving me this great opportunity. My name is Robert Reeves, and I am a practicing trial attorney with over 23 years experience. My goal is to try and answer your questions and concerns in various areas of the law.

Breathalyzers and DUI: Should I Stay or Should I Blow?

When people hear about DUI, they almost always ask about the “breathalyzer machine.” Should they take it or “refuse to blow?” Well, it depends. As criminal defense DUI lawyers, we do not trust the breathalyzer. We consider it to be “voodoo science.” Even the police Page 44

cannot explain how it works. They only know you blow into it and a “magical wizard” produces a “blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level.” In many cases, a high BAC level which should prove someone is very intoxicated does not match what we observe on the roadside video. Because we do not trust these machines, we strongly recommend, on the criminal defense side of a DUI case, to NOT BLOW. However, if you refuse to submit a sample, there are immediate consequences on the civil (driving privilege) side of the charge. Your license or driving privilege in South Carolina will be suspended for 6 months. You can, however, challenge this suspension by requesting a DMV hearing and/ or get a “provisional license” after enrolling in the Alcohol Drug Safety Awareness Program (ADSAP) and getting SR-22 insurance. Each case is different. If you have been charged with DUI or DUAC in South Carolina or DWI in North Carolina, we would welcome the opportunity to personally review your case and see if we can help. You can reach us directly during the day, after hours, and even weekends at 803-554-4157 or toll free 866-374-5999

Dear Dr. DILLIGAF

ARTICLE CONTAINS CONTENT THAT MAY BE OBJECTIONABLE

Hey Dr. Dilligaf.....how’s it going. Well as I was reading your page in Chrome . I read Halrey’s question, well sweetie you need to tell that person from Florence, not to worry.. .I for one had 2 tattoos missed spelled ...yep 2..well after heart surgery I wanted a tatt. So I got one that suppose to say “new beginnings” so needless to say they missed spelled that one .I looked in the mirror when I got home and really looked hard ...bam there it was *** beggings…..ok so the next one was done for memories of my Mom. It was done on my back. So I couldn’t see it that well. It was suppose to say sleep in heavenly peace..it said “sleep in heavely peace”..well go figure ...so for now on I will take my own art work with me so the spelling on it they don’t get wrong. hahahaa so Halrey take your own art work with ya ..and yea I have 2 stores to tell, lol........or no more tats with words. Shot pretty soon we have to send the tatt artist back to school for a spelling class again. LOL by the way I love reading your column. Susan Carter Columbia, SC Dear Suzan, If your tattoo artist acts like they didn’t pass the fourth grade then you can expect them to spell like it too. As far as you gravitating to the mentally slower side of the artistic brotherhood (twice), you should take some precautions in your love life as well. I’m sure you’d hate to get a dyslexic lover in the heat of the moment. Dear Doc, Reading about the misspelled tattoo. I got one for you. Got Harley Davidson bar & shield done a few years ago, late one night. Next morning, or afternoon I guess I should say I woke up and was looking at it… it looked strange even through bloodshot eyes I could tell something was not quite right. I yelled out Page 46

I F YO U A R E E A S I LY O F F E N D E D T U R N T H E PA G E N O W

Hey Babe how do you spell Davidson? I had Davison. Took my ass right back said Bo you gotta fix this. He got it looking ok. I got a story out of it. Rick Orangeburg, SC Rick, I think you found a winner in Susan, you guys have a ton in common and she’s obviously willing to mess up more than once. Look folks, go to a reputable shop that’s been around for a while, and make sure the sign on the door is spelled right for starters. I’d also check for eyesight and color blindness from now on. Dear Dr. Dillagaf, Always wanted a tattoo, couldn’t make up my mind. So got drunk up and put a fake tiger tatt on my bicep, a big one. Everybody said wow man that new tatt looks badass. It did. So ok maybe this is the one. Went to the local shop. He said yeah man I can do that. What I got looked like a salamander a deformed lizard with stripes and tiny short legs, now I’m old it looks like a snake had a baby with a frog. One and DONE. Burnout South Cacky Lacky Burnout, There is absolutely no excuse for putting fake tattoos on a grown man’s body, especially to go out in public and show it off to your friends. You deserve the lizard that became a pregnant snake because those tiger tats are for real men. Now go get a cover up or an amputation because the mental image you’ve given me really has me disturbed. Now you owe me a six pack.

Tourist trap in North Myrtle Beach during the season. Bartender ask me if I would ride his visiting little college kid sister. Good looking chick. Hell yeah, my lucky day. We get about 5 miles out she smacks me lightly on the head said slow down. Did she just hit me in my head? I ignore it she was clinched on tight. But I did take it easy, don’t want a scare her. Few more miles she pops me again. I slow down at a light and said Little Darlin if you hit me again we got a problem. So I round back towards the bar about a ¼ mile out Doc she knocks me again so hard my glasses slide & said I was scaring her. I’m running about 35 the whole ride. I pull over said get your ass off my bike. The bar is right there. I blast down the boulevard blistering mad as hell. Bartender calls cussing out my voice mail. Should I go kick his ass or find another watering hole, lesson learned no more nickel pony rides. Flathead Jack Conway, SC Flathead Jack, If you remember the attitude of those glory days then you’d remember how to treat a lady. After the first slap it’d been a long walk back for that girl so her feet could teach her brain a lesson while you were gone to the next bar looking for a real lady. One that could drink you under the table then ride you bitch back to your house while you screamed every time she did a wheelie. The days of bartenders cutting peoples ties off or cussing them out for ordering water are gone. Now I suggest you quit being a tool for your bartender and get back to the basics. Gas, Grass, or Ass. Nobody Rides For Free and there will be a Fifty Dollar fine for whining. To submit questions for
