show starts today. well, load in and pre party and all that. im exhausted, but couldnt be happier with this bike and im really looking forward to this weekend. last year at this time the bike was built. it was done. i was on shakedown days before the show when i got hit. its a year later now, a year of rehab on my leg, my whole life on hold while i learned to walk again. then i had to completely rebuild this totaled bike, most of it in a wheelchair and then crutches. i really feel like its been reborn, the bike is the same, but different. its been an amazing experience and really made a difference in what i put into it. and i can see and feel it when i look at it. and my family and friends have been so supportive, theres no way to put it into words.
heres a couple pics just before loading everything up in the trailer and heading out to vegas. nothing like a broken leg to kill the idea of fashionable footwear. if any of you make it to the show, please come by my booth and say hi. i look forward to it.
