“Lust and Loathing The African American Male” Mixed Media
This painting was created in 2013 by Carrollton City Councilman Mr. Gerald Byrd! @iamgeraldbyrd @geraldbyrdart He is a very talented and hard working artist, as well as a visionary for all with great ideas! I was very proud when asked to be included in his art!
This painting represents so much to me. Not just because I’m in it but because of what it actually means.
The struggle my ancestors had to go through and deal with. Even what people of color have to go though today. Men and Women.
Specifically this painting represents the African American Male. Experiencing lynchings, castration, violence, now being unarmed and still killed, being hated and feared, yet lusted after/wanted at the same time. Things I myself have experienced, that my father and his father has experienced. We have to remember these things didn’t happen that long ago. Some still happens now. And it is important to know and be taught your history.
This painting has been in several art galleries, and also has been turned down by some. “It looks too aggressive, mean, and intimidating” is some of the things that was expressed about it. It would be hard to smile after experiencing such things. Yet through our Lord and Savior we all know where true Salvation and Joy comes. That’s how we have survived.
This is a different type of motivation for me. Looking at this reminds me to be strong, to work hard, that no matter what happens or what adversity I experience I know I can make it through because my ancestors did just that. Strong minded and strong willed as well a strong physically. It is also a reminder to take care of my body, every single aspect of my well being.
I am proud of this art work, and I am proud to now be the owner of such an awesome piece. Thank you so much Mr. Byrd for your commitment to your community, for the love you have for others, and for allowing me to have some of your artwork. Thank you

First off, i have to apologize for this build taking so long. I always put my bike before everything (except my daughter). She is number one, always. I had a few projects i have been neglecting for quite a while. So it was time to put my big boy pants on and move forward on those projects and get them done. Those that follow me on snapchat see me building motors left and right. I am actually building two race cars, and just put together an all wheel drive twin turbo bmw. So that being said. Its all about the blade. Since Honda runs Nickel plated cylinder walls. I sent the block along with a piston, which they received today. So they can bore, an replate the cylinder walls. Taking displacement from 998cc to 1052cc. An taking compression from 12:5:1 to 13:5:1. Meanwhile my crankshaft an head are here local. He assured me i will have my crankshaft back when i receive my block. The crankshaft is being balanced an lightened. So not only will it help her rev crazy fast. It will also lighten the motor an help with turn in. That way i can assemble the bottom end, and should have the head by then. Which will be fully ported an polished. My plan is to be at biketoberfest in Daytona. I miss my blade. Thanks to all my loyal an patient followers. Trust me. Vids are gonna be crazy when she is back. An pics an vids of the build are coming. 200+ wheel horsepower Carbon Fiber Fireblade will be a problem. So sorry for the wait. Thanks again an stay tuned.....
Boa noite gentee! Vocês acham que esse paraíso fica muito distante do nosso Brasil? Pois saibam que fica bem no nosso Nordeste e bem pertinho de Maceió. Esse registro nós fizemos na Praia Angra de Ipioca, onde passamos um dia mega agradável no HIBISCUS BEACH CLUB.
✏Se for à Maceió a nossa dica é que vá passar um dia no Hibiscus. O espaço conta com uma ótima estrutura com chuveiro nos banheiros, restaurante, lojinha de souvenirs, música ao vivo, piscina infantil, massagem, redes, tendas, pufs para descanso... e o melhor tudo com esse mar lindo a sua frente.
