OX holding up pieces of the motorcycle that didn't handle the wreck as well as he did. The OX went down and was able to smile for this 5 minutes later. That's a commitment to fun
I went down to Long Beach to see Simon & Lisa again. It was great to see and chat with them before & after their digital presentation.
I surprised them as they did not know I was coming down to LB. Simon getting ready to take a shot of the Long Beach crowd.
This is how we rock it on Bourbon St in New Orleans. I definitely got some looks in this gear....
I first met Simon & Lisa Thomas in 2007 at the MGM Grand Hotel. I found out about their ride around the world and stayed in touch. They came back to Vegas for a digital presentation June 28th. Simon getting ready for their talk.
