i wish this post was of the "its all over now thanks" variety but unfortunately we have been taking things one step at a time in what appears will be a long and expensive process. its been roughly 3 and a half weeks since the incident in waco. the 3 members of our club that were detained are currently out of confinement and back at home with their families, but unfortunately not without a price. bond conditions include they are not to have any contact whatsoever with anyone in any motorcycle club, including ours, and including each other. gps ankle monitors which cost 750 per month that we have to pay for, assure that they will not leave travis county, no drinking and 10 pm curfew. we were able to get jon and therons bikes out of impound, but they will not release ryans until we sort out a registration concern, and for the moment we believe they wont be trying any sort of civil forfeiture. and so nearly 40 grand later, lives turned upside down, here we are. in a holding pattern with rights removed while the waco legal system takes its time trying to figure out what the hell they are doing. its very difficult for me not to start in on all that right now but im trying to keep this post a little more upbeat, for the time being anyway.

 we all want to say a sincere thank you to everyone who donated money, bought a shirt, or simply provided words in support. three of us were arrested and charged but this ordeal has affected all of us, and our families a great deal. EZ nelson and the guys at razorhoof printing here in austin came through for us in a HUGE way with the shirts and donated most of the supplies and ALL of their time to help us raise money. i dont think they were prepared for the amount we needed, we certainly werent. but the first round of shirts went to the post office this morning and we will be shipping the rest out a day at a time over the next few days, so if you ordered one thanks so much for your patience and support. there will be a couple of benefit shows in austin this weekend june 12th and 13th, at the lost well , who also have been very supportive and helpful to us, so please come out and support and say hi and all that, i dont think most people realize how much it matters to us to hear it and see we arent alone in all this. we should have a few shirts available for sale there also, while they last.

we expect to run out of local sales after this weekend but there will be a second run of these shirts available online very soon, so if you missed out on the first one or just want to get more please check back, we will make some announcements when they are ready.

once again, and we cant say it enough, thank all of you so much for your support. we love all yall and hopefully real soon we can get back to what we started this club for, riding choppers.

hi everyone,

this is hard to do. im sure if youre here you are aware of the incident in waco last sunday. three members of our club, ryan, jon, and theron were detained, held handcuffed for 14 hours and eventually arrested and charged with engaging in organized criminal activity and are currently being held with bond set at 1 million dollars each. they are innocent and we need to get them out.

we as a club have always done our best to take part in the motorcycle community. we help people every chance we get and i am certain some of you reading this can attest to that. if a motorcyclist is broke down on the side of the road, we stop to help whether we recognize them or not. if someone we know, or barely know needs help repairing their bike, we help them. growing up all of us have experienced prejudice and judgement at some point and we as a group have always and will continue to do our best to destroy the misconception that bikers are criminals. the meeting we were attending, the confederation of clubs and indepents or "coc&i", is a very professional collection of people passionate about doing everything they can to improve motorcycle safety, rights, and legislation. state senators and representatives have attended these meetings. well respected lawyers and lobbyists are regular speakers. it is not an excuse to party or cause trouble and we have and will continue to support the coc&i and encourage any motorcyclists, those in a club or not, to do so. what happened in waco is a sickening tragedy. we all feel horrible that people have been killed and understand there needs to be an investigation. but simply grabbing every person who was there, nearly 200 people, and condemning them for an organized attack is wrong. we are confident the truth will come out, and all charges eventually dismissed, but in the meantime keeping innocent people locked up for something they had absolutely nothing to do with cannot be overlooked.

we are sons, boyfriends, husbands, fathers taxpayers, and brothers. and while the waco police department might try and suggest that we are not outstanding members in our community, we are here now to say sorry sir, but you are wrong.

legal representation is expensive. and so are bail bondmen. lost wages at work, travel expenses, and 26 dollar phone calls start to add up after a week or two as well. we have always donated to others when its been needed, and unfortunately now we do. we are having some shirts printed, they are for sale now just click HERE and we will be shipping as soon as we can, within a week or so. we also have a paypal account set up for anyone wishing to send donations. the account is

thanks for listening,
