Billy The Kid!

Dennis Hopper received a star on the Hollywood walk of fame Friday just months after it was announced that he is suffering from terminal cancer. He has always been a true maverick on and off the screen from his roles in B-biker flicks as well as classics like Easy Rider and Rebel Without a Cause to real life antics such as pulling a knife on Rip Torn , destroying hotel rooms and having major acid freak outs(all that just during the making of Easy Rider.) I was saddened to see coverage of the 73 year old actor looking drawn, gaunt and weak on Friday. Good vibes your way, man!............Alvarez

Attendance was down again but I still managed to meet new and old friends and have a blast. The chopper show at Willie's was the second biggest bike wise in history but probably the busiest while the Limpnickie one was about half the size as last year. The Cycle Source party was a hit with an open bar tab and free eats that weren't too bad. I don't know what the future holds for bike week. Many have dim predictions but as long as events like Willie's and the Limpnickie keep on, I'll be there!.....Alvarez
