June 27-28, 2014 is the date for the most unique of all rallies in The Carolinas: Smoke Out! Shaggy spent some time with Edge, event organizer extraordinaire who, along with a ferocious crew of others, puts together this edgy happening at the Rockingham Speedway. If you've never been to Smoke Out, it's something to add to your ride list ... and you won't know what it is without going because there are no words to describe the edgy vibe goin on with the bikes, the people, the vendors, the place.
The freedom in riding a motorcycle speaks to everyone who has ever ridden. While we may not be able to put it into words, feeling free is a critical part of healthy living. Justin knows. It's been awhile since he's been on a bike. He fought for freedom in the US Army in Iraq and Afghanistan and he lost some of his own. He's getting it back slowly - thru medical intervention for brain injuries, surgery for injuries, therapy for PTSD, and his ever-faithful service dog Cody who helps make living doable. Now thru a venture of a good friend Justin and Cody will feel the freedom of riding again. THIS IS A JOURNAL OF THE BIKE BUILD UNDERWAY!
