Featured on Chop Cult

It was so cool to go to Chop Cult's website and see this on the main page on Sunday:

My blog posts have been part of Chop Cult's Blog Dump for a while now but I was very pleasantly surprised when Lisa Ballard reached out to me regarding a feature.  She asked me a few questions and then asked me to send her photos that I felt represented the blog and make me the happiest.  I sent her a bunch from the past few years including:
  • Lots of pictures of my Sportster including when I first bought it in 2006 (almost 100% stock but with 8,000 miles on it), when I first cut the rear struts on it (no turning back from that point), and when I painted the tank and fender.
  • Some pictures of my Road King including my moto-fishing trip to the Black Hills last year that I still haven't posted photos from.
  • Photos of me riding somewhere along the border of MN & WI.
  • My trip to Dice/CoC party at the Kung Fu Tap & Taco (my first, but not last, time camping behind a bar)
  • Trips riding alongside my father to Sturgis and the Gunflint Trail
  • Riding the Tail of the Dragon on a rental
  • Camping in Joshua Tree and attempting (often failing) to dodge rain storms & tumbleweeds in Arizona (also on a rental - I returned that bike absolutely filthy)
  • The credits from American Pickers when I had a photo used on TV.
  • Photos with Willie G. Davidson, Josh Kurpius, Kevin Baas, and Sugar Bear.
  • Local shows and events including Full Tilt, Bearded Lady Motorcycle Freakshow, Donnie Smith, First Thursday / Moto Mania, Hog Feed, Build Art Bike Show, I-Cycle Derby, AMA Hillclimb, the MN ride for Larry Pierce, Flood Run, Scooter Trash, and Mama Tried.
  • There's even a picture of a rocket-powered Sportster!  What more could you ask for?
I didn't go through all my photos to find the most creative or artistic shots.  I didn't simply pick photos of a bunch of local bikes that I thought were cool (well, maybe just a few but I could have easily picked LOTS more).  Instead, I selected photos that all collectively mean a lot to me and hopefully showcase the breadth of content you're likely to find here.  There's a story behind each one.

Lisa wrote up a very nice intro and then the Q&A and photos followed.
