Bike gang

The first dirt bike I had was when I was in 8th grade. It was an MX80. An ancient, extinct little Yamaha that I drove into the ground as a kid in North Carolina (Literally and figuratively). After I was done doing my time in NC (from ages 9 to 15) I moved back up to Boston.

Bought a Suzuki Savage a couple years ago and drove that until some douche from NH veered across three lanes of traffic and I ended up pretty much sitting on his hood.

I still own the "Purple Dragon" and am trying to sell it's old ass.

I recently bought a VN800, dubbed "the Admiral" and now that is my pride and joy. I was excited as all hell when my roomate Marc up and bought a 2005 Triumph T-100 Bonneville.

We ride any weekdays we can since we have odd schedules and can get some nice riding in while the nine to fivers are at their desks.



Our initial thought of course is "dude we need a bike club" but 1. as of now there are only two of us, and 2. we have no idea what to call ourselves.

Something non-tough. We're not tough guys. Something that conjures up imagery from 60's B-movies. Something cryptic. Like the Amboy Dukes or the Green Emeralds.

Any ideas? Any recruits?

alley sands

Just so you know.

I didn't even notice I typed "green" instead of "red"

Whoops.

Actually, I kind of like the name "The Chastity Brood"

I'm taking that one back.

I work a shitty office job full time. Anything creative I do on the side. I'm trying to correct this.

I'd love to be in a bike gang with you two homos. But first, I guess I'll have to get over my fear of getting on one. I guess that makes me the homo now, huh?

Someday you may get sick of being the only thing that stands between you and cool stuff. Until then, I'll be on the Admiral.
