Shiny Side Down

Word travels a bits slower out here in the farm fields. I just found out that Mitch was hit by a car in the city yesterday. After a sort stay in the hospital he made his way back to the shop. He had just put a new front end on his bike which now completely mangoled...... at least he is ok. Downtown Chicago is a pretty gnarly place to ride a motorcycle... it's only a matter of time before you get clipped by a car. This is Mitch's only means of transportation and he rides it to work everyday.... rain or shine.... sleet or snow... he plays roulette on a daily basis.

I hope your pains subside soon.
