I Voted

I've had some "big wheels" in our community try to recruit me for various city government doings, to speak at council meetings, help volunteer at different events.  These same people are older, aging, they've done their duty, they want some younger members to carry-on, but life experienced recruits to fill these positions in our local organizations like Elks Club, Rotary, Parks, Lions Club, Toys for Tots, motorcycle riding clubs, bicycle clubs, Pheasants Forever, Ducks Unlimited . . . you get it.  I accept about 1 in 10 requests.  I should do more, but I don't.  I'm not lazy - just busy with all more other projects.  I'm hardly at home as it is.  But I can see this stuff dying off.  The way of life in America is changing.  I'm sure my great grandfather or anyone who lived in the 1920s would see us as a bunch of whimps with goofy gadgets and dumb stuff to make your life so easy - what's the point of these things?  They wouldn't believe people on television and radio say such things on the air.  They wouldn't believe the shootings, the talk, the foul language, the baby shit, the racism that's still here...the rudeness.  I don't care if you're the best businessman, the best salesman, the best guy that can make you the most money and be the best thing since sliced bread . . . if you act like a dork, and a racist, and say shit that's bad about a woman, and poke fun, and tease people, and act like a bully - I'd rather be poor and happy like my grandparents then follow a chump, who if they grew up in my old neighborhood, it woulda done 'em some good.  I know my great granddad would agree with, and a whole lotta other grandmas too . . . They'd say the exact same thing, they'd feel the same way.  So get out and vote and join up or cancel me out - 'cause this is America (not fucking 'Merica) and we're all in this together black, white, German, Italian, Indian, Armenian, French, Japanese, Chinese . . . with every religious affiliation all jumbled into one big group of people on one little chuck of land.  So be a part of your community, get to know those around and lead by example.  I always think of it like this . . . if we were all in a boat over about one month, and had to deal with each other, we'd end up making the best friend who on first impression you didn't care for.  You'd forget about who was what color, who was big or small or loud or quiet . . . and we'd all wonder how lucky we were to meet someone like that - and couldn't wait to get back with them real soon.  That's what makes this country great - all the variety.  We're lucky to have a great country with variety, cause the countries without much variety all follow us.  If to get people to follow you, they have to respect you and like you.  Following out of fear is short term.  If you're really good, they'll follow you long long after you're gone - like Abe Lincoln.

New ChopCult Feature: Alec Ozawa's Porosity Princess

The What We Ride features focus on our contributors and the motorcycles they choose to kick their leg over. We’re fortunate to work with Alec Ozawa, and he has become a vital part of the ChopCult team. Alex is a Chicago-based custom motorcycle enthusiast who enjoys photography as one of his artistic outlets. Having no mechanical background, his can do attitude helped him to build this 1998 Harley XL1200C, 95th Anniversary Custom chopper he calls Porosity Princess. Enjoy!

Fuel Cleveland Official Pre-Party At Saucy Brew Works

Saucy Brew Works

In the past 10 years the craft brewery movement has taken over the greater Cleveland area by storm. Craft beer brewing hobbyists turning their passions into an opportunity of business and hopes to becoming a staple in the beer industry. Saucy Brew Works is the brain child of Brew Master Eric Anderson and Entrepreneur Brent Zimmerman and first opened it's doors a little over a year and a half ago on July 5th, 2017. Since opening it has been nothing but moving on up for this craft brewery, from partnering with the Cleveland Cavaliers, to opening a second location in Columbus, Ohio and even being distributed in multiple stores, Saucy Brew Works is a true success story. So, when Brent from Saucy Brew Works approached us and asked how they could get more involved with Fuel Cleveland we couldn't have been more excited.


Saucy Brew Works handcrafts all of their brilliant beers in house and have over 16 different flavors to try, there's literally something for everyone. Accompanied by a full bar for your other adult beverage needs, pizza to die for, and a humongous patio, this brewery is perfect to house the official Fuel Cleveland Pre-Party!

Saucy Brew Works is located on the corner of West 29th & Detroit Ave in Cleveland, OH. Their address, 2885 Detroit Ave, Cleveland, OH 44113. We will be throwing a hell of a rager there on Friday July 26th from 8 pm to last call. Make sure to come out early and hang out all night with us! There is a ton of parking options to choose from and we are working on bike parking to be in the front, more details to come on that. We will see you there!
