    Hi guys,

    After some advice from everyone over at the 1st gen threads I have joined the Taco world.

    I'm an opera singer based in NY, but wanted to take my motorcycle with me to more gigs. So, as I head out to Central City, CO, I have this great truck to cart around my V-Strom.

    Excited to be here, and look forward to more of the forum!

    Oh, it is more urban. Bought the truck in Lee's Summit, Missouri. Pics are from the PO. She'll see a bit of Brooklyn, but will be on the road most of the time utilized as a big beautiful bike rack. I'll be keeping the her in KCMO while I run around singing and riding my Motorcycle. [​IMG]

    I'm in Nashville this weekend with the Nashville Opera singin' the Duke in Rigoletto this weekend at TPAC. Let me know if anyone needs a night out with their signif other... we open today (4-10-10) another on Tues. Lots of sex, blood, deception, and death. Oh, if you guys had any idea the woman I get to make out with onstage (not my GF!)...
    [​IMG]

    Awe MAN!! I love my freakin job!


    Anyway, I'll have the new Taco with me in Lincoln, Nebraska early May with the Symphony, and then will be west of Denver in Central City, CO all summer. Hit me up if anybody wants to tow me out of the ruts on the fire roads, or ride bikes on the mountain curves for a couple of days.

    Takin' the Taco (and the GF) to Burning Man at the end of August if any of you guys are headed that direction.

    Thanks for the kind words guys.

    All the best.

    Yo Squad - Thanks man!

    PM me if you need some brownie points with the boss. I've been doin' this singing thing for the past 10 yrs and am on the road about 275+ days a year. If she needs some advice or has questions about this weird-ass biz in which I live, I'd have no problem connecting via email.

    All the best.

    P.S. always stay away from the boss's daughter... ALWAYS!
