Well bro's and sis's I got my ass out of the cave today. I jumped on "Baby" and we took a scenic ride out to one of TX Bikers most famous waterin holes, Stroker's Dallas. Rick Fairless proprietor, however, I didn't have the pleasure of meeting him or his family but Teresa the Bar tender took awesome care of us bar flies. She kept me watered and fed me the Tom Landry (one of their specialty sandwiches) which I gotta admit was pretty tasty and went well with beer.
After I guzzled a few ice cold ones I walked around outside of the bar and looked at the buildings, this guy has some set up lemme tell ya. I always wanted my own biker bar with a courtyard for bike parking only and the best part is that Rick also has a tattoo joint on premises, a parts shop, mechanics shop and a swag and Victory Motorcycle dealership all on site.
Took me a few hours to take it all in but well worth the ride. I did get my old ass sun burnt again, Mama told me to put on sun lotion but this senile old fucker forgot so I'm sporting a farmers tan right now. I bought some swag while I was there as well got one of Rick's signature hippie tie die shirts and a cool American flag bandana.
Rick's scoots are far fuckin out lemme tell ya the man or whom ever builds his bikes is pretty frikin awesome, very reminiscent of another great builder, the late Indian Larry from the Bronx. The paint jobs are just plain crazy and while all his bikes are awesome I have a couple of favorites (I'm not really into the low stretched Arlen Ness look so much and more into Larry's style of street eatin chopper and Rick has a couple of those that are just as crazy as the low long ones.
My Favorite is the Pan-Shovel above.
Anyways they say pictures are worth a lot more than a rambling old Biker fool so here ya go. Enjoy.
