Hello my friend :-)

I use this blog as an extension of my life as I do with my social media or lack of it, lol. If you follow me on FB and IG, you understand as I only post from time to time. I think it's strange that I cater to hundreds of thousands of people on a daily basis, but I can't find the time/energy to complete a simple post most days. 

Maybe it's because over the past four months my health has been shit most days and a nap holds more value than instant gratifaction. My breathing is labored due to asthma, bronchitis, and recently an upper respiratory infection. Our doctor stated that 80% of the patients seen are dealing with some respiratory illness due to the Holy Fire ash. It doesn't matter who much you vacuum, dust, and hose down the property give a day or two and you have to do it all over. 

Most of my recent illness was probably self-inflicted due to standing outside capturing photos of the firefighting efforts which was perhaps not the smartest idea. I wonder what the fire retardant used does to one's body but I thank God it's available. The outcome could of been so much worst for everyone involved.

I'm striving to be the best me possible, and I have given myself a year to get healthier and find the inner strength to be present for anyone in my path. Thanks for sticking with me through the good and bad times. I wish you the very best today and always.

What's Happening Hot Stuff?

Hello, it has been awhile since I have posted, and I hope all is well with you. Our lives are going at full steam as Born-Free is heading our way. Duane is an invited builder once again and has set the bar with the latest CB750. There's been a lot of late nights over the past six months and a few setbacks. D has handled every challenge with ease and has managed to stay focused. I, on the other hand, am a ball of nerves. I hope the mailman brings him an early birthday gift tomorrow ( his birthday is on Wednesday) and delivers the engine parts so D can move forward. Be sure to give my bff a follow on Instagram to watch his bike come together.

ChopCult.com continues to grow which I'm forever grateful. Grateful that you enjoy which we feature on the website and social media, and thankful to those who continue to use Chopcult.com to sell their wares and use the forums daily.

Take a moment to check out some of the features showcased on ChopCult.com. and we'll see you at Born-Free!
Talk soon.

It's hard to get my head in the game when my heart is 3000 miles away. I find peace knowing my father gave his brother one of his giant hugs, and Uncle Eddie is pain-free once again. I'm sending my grandmother, family and cousins thoughts of strength and love during this difficult time. See you later dear friend.

What's Happening Hot Stuff!

It's been a while since I posted here. Life is busy handling all things ChopCult, and I headed back east for a bit. It was refreshing to step away from all things digital and get some quality time with my family. Here are the latest features that I published during my absence here. I would like to thank Ryan, Steve, and Josh for helping me gather the content. Enjoy!
