Cranks rally, Stolen Mopeds recovered, and Burnt Pizza racing.

So last weekend  we headed to Milwaukee for The Crank's Rally and shit was fuuuuun. Only had to drive 2 hours which RULED. This year I've been getting to the know the Cranks better.  I really like them because they are fucking nerds.... very unlike most other Moped Army groups. The rally was held during some motorcycle weekend so we got to get looked down on together, so awesome. Spirits were high, people were drunk, and the streets were riddled with potholes. Tons of hot dogging groms, just the way I like it. pics.

Stolen Mopeds

So a few local girls had their mopeds stolen the other day, one was a Batavus regency with Hobbit motor and the other was a red Garelli SSXL. They live 10 or so blocks away so it makes me glad we have a garage and everything. So Thom, my gf Azarah and I walked to one of our favorite coffee shops in the neighborhood to find it was packed.  I noticed a new coffee shop down the street so we headed there to try it out. The coffee shop was pretty lame and the coffee tasted like gas station coffee... which I like but I go to gas stations when I want watered down coffee. So we were chatting about metaphysics and mythology when I hear a looooooud ass moped coming down the street. Of course you look because mopeds are so cool. I look over and see a redheaded gangster wannabe riding one of the stolen mopeds with out a pipe. He is riding down the bike lane backwards on the other side of the road. So thom and I jump on our TANDEM BIKE and head towards this mega grom. Well 7 blocks later and after asking a ton of people we roll up to the kid. He is leaking gas hellla and is with these four 16 year old kids. So instead of just taking the bike, we ask him all about the moped.  He tells us he hit a rock and the pipe fell off and that he bought it from a buddy, oh and that it had a 5 gallon gas tank on it (batavus regency tank HAHA). He then lets us take a picture of him on the bike lol. We then walk down the street and call the owners, who dont pick up. We then decide that we are going to walk back and tell the kid we know the bike is stolen and we are going to call the cops. So we head back down the block and he takes off. As this is going on my GF finds the snapped proma pipe in the road and stashes it. So we head to the Castle and tell everyone what happened and show them the photo. Daniel recognized the dude as his GF's neighbor and knew exactly where he lived. So 8 of us piled in the truck and went to his house. Daniel and Thom knocked on the door and then jumped the fence. The rest of us walked around to the alley. Daniel opened the back gate and guess what? Both of the stolen mopeds were there, so we stole them back. Happy ending. Fuck gangster kids on mopeds.
