The picture that was in the header the last few weeks was taken late at night. A couple of years ago Martin came by for a beer and the bad weather caused us to put the sickles in the garage. When Martin left that night I took this picture. I'ts blurry, but I love it!
...used to be a fanatic racer in the 70's, and he has got a wild bunch of photo's of the life at the tracks. This picture has been hanging in my garage sinds forever and the little girl sitting on front is my wife . Ron is the guy in the centre and the storys he tells me of this time are proving one thing; these guys where a couple of bad boys for sure!!! Fun thing is that he like's my chopper a lot. "Thats a cool bike, weird but cool." He doesn't understand the jockey and suicide shit at all ( does it make ya go faster??), but when he hears the shovel's sound that is'nt that importent anymore.
A couple of weeks ago I got a e-mail from Nisse. He could get me a set of gold Supersixties! Cool! They where sent to his adres and Nisse send them to me............
Today I received an other mail, and Nisse posted this on his blog.....
Some postalcunt took Sik's SUPER SIXTIES grips.
Got the remains of my package back to day, in a small bodybag with a note saying something down the lines of ''here is your post, I know its fucked but hey thats life. Fuck you and goodbye, yours truely TPGpost''
So If you see a postalcunt riding around on his lil' moped or scooter rocking some super sixties please say hi for me. (Those in the picture are mine)
OLLIE F*CK!! So now I'm wasted on da couch. Way to much beer I think. We'll get them Nisse!! They'll be sorry for this....blablabla...
Been kind of busy lately. No, not with chopper and Rock 'n Roll but with a typical Dutch holiday : Sinterklaas. Kids are told that at the end of november Bishop Sint Nicholas, or Sinterklaas, is coming on a boat from Spain in the company of hunderds of Zwarte Pieten ( Black Jacks) to celebrate his birthday on the 5th of December. Childer may put their shoe under the mantelpiece in the evening, sing a song for the saint and then next morning there will be a present in their shoe.
The arrival in the harbor of my home town.
The Black Jacks are throwing candy to the kidsSinterklaas himself
The story is that St. Nicholas is riding his white horse over the rooftops followed by his black jacks. The Saint is old, but the young athletic Black Jack will climb down the chimney to put presents in the shoes. Children will often put big carrots, appels or hay in their shoes for St. Nicholas his horse. At the 5th of December families will gather and give presents, mostly to the children. St. Nicholas is a real ancient party dude here in the Netherlands, and his story go's back more than 400 years! The rotten thing is that this Nicholas bloke is everywhere!!! At school, at moms work, at Dads work, in the shopping mall...... everywhere. So we are taking my 3 year old son all over the place the last few weeks. Well, the weather is all fucked up anyway!!
Them old days
Up to Christmus.....man, I wish it was summer again!
