I've never been a huge fan of guns.
I've never even fired one in my whole life.
Until today.
Because the big kids found themselves in a shooting range.

Gino went for a .38 special, Noel a 9mm and I went for the .45
I must say, having that sort of power in your hands is thrilling.

The .38 was just bad ass.
It felt primitive but classy.
Just like a vintage motorcycle.

A .45 is what I imagine you'd have if you said you were "Packing heat"
Real solid and fucking loud.

The 9mm felt light and was the easiest to shoot out of all 3.

We wanted to try the shotgun out but decided to do it next time.
Now THAT must be a blast.

This was my sheet with the .45
Some of the shots here are Gino's and Noel's.

Nice, early morning ride with my bud, Kamote, down to Navotas
to check out a CB72 gathering dust in this dude's garage.
Talked about the bike over some coffee his wife kindly prepped for us.
Dude says he's getting a little too old to ride the bike,
that's the reason he's letting go of it - made me think, man.

I guess that means we all should ride the shit out of our bikes
while we still can.

In the meantime, I think I'll wait for him to consider my offer.
I would love to see this Hawk on the road again.
Just like old times.

Yeah, beacause a machine like this is never too old for anything.

How could I possibly forget about this...

Finally got my sugar skull done last December 22, 2010.
It's the first time for me to try a different artist and I'm damn pleased.

Her name is Camsy Valencia and she's only been tattooing for a little over a year. Now that's fucking talent.

The pic above was taken right after the session so it's still a bit bloody. Now everyone I know wants to get one from her
and I totally understand why. Hell, even I can't wait for my next.

If you're interested in getting one from her,
don't hesitate to get in touch with me through here.
I'll be glad to hook her up with more clients.

Wow, it's been well over a month since I last posted anything here.
December was pretty fuckin' nuts - good times, lots of alcohol
and good company. I did get to work on Stella though...
Very first day of the year, baby.

Painted the side panels flat black and that really turned out well.
Will take a proper photo when I get the chance to.
Now I want to do the tank all over again and get both fenders done up as well.
Will do that soon...

Also figured out what was wrong her.
Found a crack by the air filter that I covered up with some trusty old glue then cleaned the air filter as well.
Now she runs like butter.

Weather's been nice and cold in the city.
Been able to wear a hoodie at night without actually sweating.
Just perfect.

Anyway, a happy 2011 to y'all.
Ride hard.

P.S. This was Stella before painting the side panels flat black.
