Had the chance to go to the premiere of the wonderful movie “A Thousand Miles Behind” by @lemoynestreetpictures last night. Beautiful movie about dealing with loss and the need to connect by disconnecting. A man loses his loved ones to a drunk driver and gets on his Ducati Scrambler to deal with the pain. (More about Ducati Scramblers and drunk drivers a little bit later 😔...). Anyway, got to meet the one and only Greg Evigan who meant the world to many kids my age/generation. Whenever someone asks me what I wanted to be when I was a little kid, the answer is ALWAYS “a truck driver!”. Why? You know where this is going... Back in the day there was this TV show about a really cool guy that just drove all across the country on his 18 wheeler, discovering people and places, helping those in need, getting into crazy hijinks, and accompanied by his best friend, a monkey. The premise was genius (and WHAT A THEME SONG!!!<3 ) and it fueled my sense of wanderlust. It made a lasting impact on me, to this day I still dream of hitting the road with my monkey pal, no posessions, no address, just living life each day on the open road...
Anyway, here’s BJ and the Jav from last night 😉🐵🚚 #bjandthebear#gregevigan#athousandmilesbehind#70stv#lovela#ducatiscrambler#moviepremiere
*THIS SATURDAY* come hang at the shop and meet @henrycrew who is currently attempting to set the World Record for being the youngest person to circumnavigate the world on a motorcycle. Join him and a bunch of fellow riders on a ride from Beach Moto to @thehouseofmachines_la for a Q&A with Henry, raffle of amazing prizes from his sponsors, food & drinks as well as live music. Donations will be collected at the door to benefit the @movember foundation. WE’LL SEE YOU ALL SATURDAY!!!
Heather, new owner of my around town cruiser, came by with her husband Jae today and walked away with a new bike to call her own. It’s been years since she’s been on two wheels and she is stoked at how perfect and open arms this Scrambler is. No if and or butts, this transaction is as smooth as every one should be. I can’t wait to see what they do with her. I’m glad to have been able to help 👍🏻 Now, what should take its place in the garage... Another Flat Track back bike or a black edition Desert Sled? No such thing as free parking in Los Angeles.
