While in Daytona last Oct, this big European dude chased Gary and I down and said he was the publisher of a European motorcycle magazine and wanted to take some pictures. He knew where we were staying and when we were leaving and we didn't give it much more thought. The night before we left he called and said he'd like to meet us in the morning before we loaded up to do a shoot. These guys must have taken a hundred pics and had some heavy duty cameras and were asking lots of questions. We told Morten, the publisher, to send us a few pics sometime.

Next thing we know a bud over there said he saw us in the magazine. Next, a number of issues came in my mailbox. Small pic of Gary's chopper on the top cover in a small inset. Right inside the cover is a 2 page pic of Gary doing a smoker. Cool pic. Next, I pull out like a centerfold in a girlie magazine sitting astride mine. G'daughter said I looked mean but I just hadn't had breakfast yet. Next couple of pages had a bunch of pics with another of Gary doing a nitrous smoker down A1A. One showed us mocking up Gary's blower on my bike while I was replacing the cam.

The verbage of this particular mag is Norwegian. Could be saying we're a couple of goofy gay Amerikansky's for all I know. Maybe it's best it's not translated, hee hee. Anyhow, the pics were cool and we were flattered that they thought enough of our bikes to showcase them in their Jan '05 edition. Thought you all would like to see some V8 action getting some good press instead of all those 2 cylinder lawnmower motor bikes.

Thanks Tim. My only disappointment with the photos were they didn't publish my burnout and the headers looked pretty bad. Can't help the first issue but the coating on the headers have cleaned the bike up a bit.
