Viva La France !
The title of this post is Viva la France !
Never been there but I recently was contacted by one cool Frenchman. Fabian was looking for some bars for his new Blackline and found our site on the web. A few e mails back and forth and we had an order nailed down.
I tell you what , there is certain stuff that gets my attention and engineering is one that really grabs my ass. Very few man made objects can compare with the beauty and style of The Eiffel Tower . It is known all over the world and is a testament to what one man can do . I have a table in my home with a collection of Eiffel Towers . Gifts from friends that travel to grabbing them on the bargain tables or where ever I find them . I got a running line going with my wife , I tell her that old Eiffel couldn't have been married, cause if he was , he would never have finished his masterpiece . Honey , can you come do this , honey , can you come do that . How are we suppose to get anything done when we're trying to work ? . Girls , stay out of the shop !.
But now Fabian went way above and beyond for ol John . He does not live in Paris but he got in his ride , drove to Paris . Took his camera with him . Shot all these images for me . Then went to the Official Tourist Gift Shop. Bought me a cool ass Eiffel Tower T Shirt and Key Chain with an Eiffel Tower on it.
There is an image of the tower taken from his car. If you look close you will see a Statue of Liberty on the side of the river . Fabian tells me it faces towards America . I had no idea they kept a smaller version of the one they gave us. How cool is that ? .
More images of the inside of the Official Gift Shop. Tell me , how many people go out of there way for you these days. Well Fabian sure did for me and I can not be happier to have met him. Thank You my friend . We meet people from all over the world now that we have our web site. My life has been changed buy the contacts I have made here at home and around the world. The one thing we all have in common is our love for motorcycles.
Last image is my T shirt and Key chain. Man there is some cool people out there. Thanks Fabian and Thanks again for checking out our parts . Best Regards , John
