1952 Vincent for Red Molly

I fell in love with this song when I first heard it. For those, like me, that never slowed down enough to understand all of the lyrics...

Oh says Red Molly to James, "That's a fine motorbike. A girl could feel special on any such like." Says James to Red Molly, "My hat's off to you, it's a Vincent Black Lightning, 1952. And I've seen you at the corners and cafes it seems. Red hair and black leather, my favourite colour scheme." And he pulled her on behind and down to Boxhill they did ride. Oh says James to Red Molly, "Here's a ring for your right hand but I'll tell you in earnest... I'm a dangerous man. For I've fought with the law since I was seventeen. I robbed to many a man to get my Vincent machine. Now I'm 21 years, I might make 22 and I don't mind dying, but for the love of you. And if fate should break my stride, then I'll give you my Vincent to ride."
"Come down, come down, Red Molly" called Sergeant McRae, "For they've taken young James Adie for armed robbery. Shotgun blast hit his chest, left nothing inside. Oh come down, Red Molly to his dying bedside." When she came to the hospital, there wasn't much left. He was running out of road; he was running out of breath; but he smiled to see her cry. He said "I'll give you my Vincent to ride." Says James, "In my opinion, there's nothing in this world beats a '52 Vincent and a red headed girl. Now Nortons and Indians and Greeves and Triumphs and Harleys won't do. Ah, they don't have a soul like a Vincent '52." Oh he reached for her hand and he slipped her the keys said, "I've got no further use for these. I see angels on Ariels in leather and chrome, swooping down from heaven to carry me home." And he gave her one last kiss and died...and he gave her his Vincent to ride.

Hollywood Does Dallas

I'm giving the big finger to Mex-Squite this Saturday Jan 3rd. I've got a few people committed to help me move some boxes and furniture...but would love all the help I could get. I'm hoping to get this all done in one trip. I'll provide beer. Looking to start at 10am. Thanks for everything y'all.

Santa's Lost Reindeer


Twas the night after Christmas and all through the garage not a creature was stirring, not even a Buell powered by a hawg.

When up on the roof came quite a noise... A twin from Italy, and boy was it annoyed. Pissed, actually.

My wife is the most understanding woman in the world... How on earth does a pregnant woman agree to let her unemployed husband buy something like this? It must be because I convinced her we could strap the baby seat to the rear cowling... Or that it was such a good deal that I just couldn't pass it up. Tell your friends, tell your friend's friends, slippery has a 2003 Ducati 999 that has under 6000 miles on it with your name on it. It books for $9400, no resonable offers will be refused. Baby needs new shoes.


In the mean time... I wonder how fast this little beast is?
I bet it does huge wheelies. Saving that rubber on the front tire really sounds like the most responsible thing to do.
And I am all about being responsible. Seriously. Yep. Responsible.

East Texas ride

The ride to Brian's house was cold and windy but it was a good ride. I was proud of myself for riding with the guys and not being left behind trying to catch up with them. I rode back with Angie (Andres' wife) with my bike on the back of the truck because I got really sick (asthma). It was sad to see the reflection of my bonnie on the window but I was glad to be in the car while the guys were fighting the wind all the way home. We had a great time !

Mascot

The Bee need to loose the sailor hat before becoming  a Hooligan mascot

A peek behind the curtain.

I have shared this story with about 72,000 people. For some reason I have always hesitated to share this with the people I hang out with on a daily basis. I think it's easier to share things with people you don't know.

New Years Drink-a-thon

Hate to go out on New Years and drop $30 to stand in a bar that's free every other night? Thinking about just staying home because of all the idiots that only drink once a year puking on your shoes?

It's a hooligan holiday. This will be the third year of this trainwreck.

This is an event that I bring all my motorcycle friends from all over the country to drink keg beer and burn things in my backyard. There will be throwing up (hopefully not on your shoes) and passing out.

I enjoy the afternoon rides, but the mornings at 40 degrees is kicking my arse! I miss seeing skin...

First Group Event

Make your plans now. The Hooligans will make a good showing to this.

Photobucket

Posting...

Hooligans,

Shirts should be in by the end of the week. I will post updates, but email me with your size request. More importantly, you have been sent permission to post on the blog. With this invitation, certain responsibilities are being bestowed upon you. Simple rules apply...keep it clean-ish. The occasional nipple slippage is customary, but full on gynecological shots are a little out of the scope of what we are about. The Hooligan Po-Po's will be watching, so be cool.

That being said, this is your site. The direction I see this going is a blog about rides and reports, events, beer drinkin', chic watchin', and basic Hooliganism. Try to keep the initial post as short as possible. You can always add comments if you have a bunch to talk about.

That's it, have fun and make this a place people want to visit. As always, email me with anything suggestions or requests. For now, for simplisity, email me with photos you want added to the gallery. As I build up the stash, I will develop new slideshows.

Hello Hooligans!!! We are thinking of pinning down one bar that we can call our own. A place that can be a base of operations...somewhere that we can go...on a regular basis...to start or end our evenings. After a few weeks, we intend to approach the management for some type of a "Hooligan Happy Hour Special" or something like it. A few places that have been suggested are:

The Libertine
Stonleigh P
Lee Harveys

Any and all suggestions should be brought forth...the goal is to make ourselves visable...and to give those who may want to join us a place to track us down. It's also...of course...a way to try to procure cheap beer! Let's find a spot that will have safe parking for us...and that will cater to us. This Wednesday...let's begin at the Libertine for libations and discussion. Drinks up at 7pm. See you all there!

Happy Thanksgiving

I just wanted to take the opportunity to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving. Many of you may not know that it was only 9 years ago that I was homeless. I was living in Colorado and had broken up with my girlfriend of six years. She took everything when she left, except the bills. I was forced to ask a friend if I could live in his basement. I had a borrowed bed, enough clothes to fill a suitcase and my truck. I lived like that for six months. After ending up in the hospital with walking pneumonia, I broke down a called my parents. I was broke and broken down. I moved back to Houston and 2 months later, I met my wife. Fast forward to November 27, 2008. I am sitting in my living room, the love of my life just made us animal shaped waffles, my three yr.old is measuring my toes with his play tape measure, and my seven month old is trying to divert my attention, from this to her, by kicking my leg.

This year, no matter what is going on in our lives, remember that things could always be worse. Give thanks to God for family and friends. In the end...we're all we've got.

Welcome!

Welcome to the 59 club Hooligans blog. We are a bunch of Texas guys that share the love for fast bikes and cold beers, both leaning strongly towards Euro and cafe, but all are welcome. Chicks are good too, but that goes without saying. We have reps in Dallas and Houston. Please take the time to read the profile and find out what we are all about. Other than that, enjoy the ride.
