Spring Kick-off Run 2011

First off, let me start this with a little story.

It was about 7 years ago now I started getting into the chopper scene. I found a website that had a lot of cool bikes on it and cool members. Fast forward 7 years and I now run the BEST website on the planet for Choppers and just about anything motorcycle related. The members totaling over 12,000 now are some of the best guys/gals you would ever meet.

In this 7 years I have made a lot of friends with the same interest as myself. Over the past 2-3 years I have been blessed with meeting a bunch of guys locally that are into the same thing and are members of my website along with and some that I still consider family even though not a member.

We don't need a fancy name (although we have kicked the idea around just for fun) but it is a TRUE brotherhood. These guys would be at my side in a heartbeat if I needed it and myself the same. So, for now I like to call them and myself the Central US TCU Crew.The membership of this crew continues to grow but as of now it consists of the following:

  • Car99r (Myself)
  • Scraphous (Mike)
  • Landman76 (Barry)
  • Copper_King (Paul)
  • Dirka (Derek)
  • Justin (Justin)
  • Falldown (Roger)
  • Harlo (Harlo)
  • Brumie (Jason)
  • Gentleman77 (Duane)
  • Cobrasparrow (Cody)
  • Dirty Sparkles (Bill)

This group got together this previous weekend to kick off the summer with the Moonshine Run. Along with the Central US TCU Crew we were joined by a few other TCU members and freinds (Greazybiker (Ken), ta2ist (John), Harley, Matt) and I apologize if I missed someone. Everyone came, some with spouses and hung out at my place (some refer to as TCU Headquarters). We had a great time swapping stories, wrenching on each others bikes, drinking our favorite beverages and of course making fun of each other. I am not a writer so I never know the right words to put on here but I hope all of these guys understand that I call them "BROTHER" and "SISTER" for a reason! It takes a lot to get that title from me. Enjoy the pictures below and links to more pictures from our weekend together.
