Ever so slightly...

There is no sum of fears greater than living without it. No bigger looking glass but our own, no bridge long enough that we cannot see the other side. All an illusion to make us behave and believe in things that are not real. A breath and heartbeat are real, this should be your first fear, to lose that, out before any other task.

Brief and unspoiled. An unearthed reality. Creative. Durable. Breathing. Concise. Conscious.

What has happened? Where is it all? It's disbelief of innate hyperbole. Flexed and refined.

Bored. Oxygen. Turmoil in the wake and at the hands of a shattered glass explosion. Gunfire. Rivals.

Beneath. Awkward and enlightened. Able to see for miles now. Playing solitaire with three other partners.

Saturday. Forever.

rsv4 rr competition werks intergrated tail light wiring diagram picture

rsv4 rr competition werks intergrated tail light wiring diagram and wire picture pictures 

Rsv4 wires.

red and blue are flashers left and right.

Comp Werks wires

blue and yellow are flashers.

If you plug the direct connector, then the flashers are already grounded.

So all you have to do is splice the WERKS wires, yello (WERKS) with red( RSV4) and blue with blue, and bam.

Taking the tail out was way more work.

Make sure you disconnect the battery. The unit in the tail has some exposed wires. You dont want sparks. I wrapped it in a towel.

I suggest going slowly and testing every step by reconnecting the battery and turning the bike on. It worked great and I did not blow any fuses.

I had sliced the wires for the plate light weeks ago, so that was already done.

This thing is sick. I recommend getting the light somke. The dark smoke is way to dark and not visible enough. trust me.

have fun

More today

I saw Amelie and Stef tonight. I worked with Stef on the project and we had dinner and two bottles of white wine. Amelie said it was not the same without you. I was not the same without you. She believes you will come back. I cried a little with her. The kids saw me and commented how I looked sad. I played with em on the climbing wall a little.

What a really nice family.



I had to go to the hospital today. After the crash I needed to submit a form for the saaq. The give me 1000$ for new gear. But they need the file from the doctor so I am at the archives waiting for them to copy it so I can send it in.

Thank God I am built strong. I saw another guy from a crash in the hallway. He looked like he would never walk again...

Spoke to sly. He thinks your to embarrassed to come back. Don't be. We can work this out. We have love and that's all we need chica.

I did something for you today too. Hope you will like it :) I know you will :)


I would really love it if you would come back and we could unpack your boxes together, make the apt ours from now on. You can do whatever you want. Silly things on the wall... whatever.

Design a new closet and we can have it made custom. All your shoes would fit then. And so much clothes... You have so much clothes LOL...

Love you :)


Since I can't talk to you in person I guess I will do it here.

I bought a paper shredder today, with ink cartridges for that printer you can't reach LOL...

There was a sale on school teacher supplies. I starred at them for what seemed like an eternity.

Anyway. I am home... I miss you :)

This part of my life hurts....

EVA :(

Ok so this is not the greatest video of all time. But the music is really pretty,

I miss you so much. Come back to me :(


There is a line in the sand, don't mind the clock.
Leave it all behind, todays tick and, a tock.
Worry of not what you wish, but instead the vision we fear.
Enter the beauty and exit the shame, it will encompass the for ever.

Quote of the day!

“Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.”

Dainese Zipper fix

Nothing sucks more then breaking a zipper tab on a leather race jacket. Replacing it is a hassle, it's security stitching and needs to be sent to the factory. With no tabs, the locking mechanism locks the zipper and it's impossible to bring up or down without fighting for your life with the zipper.

So. For 1$ I bought one foot of 1/16 steel cable and aluminum clamps found in the same isle. 

It took a pair of vise grips and wire cutters and about 2 minutes.

This is my life...

All my life I have wanted to achieve three things. They seem petty to most, unimportant really, but for me, they are important. 

1. Ever since I was a little boy, I have alwats wanted a motorcycle. Maybe its from watching greece or fons or some deep seeded marketing ploy, but fuck, its been a dream.

2. My dad would take us out to supper a lot, when I was a boy, with friends, but mostly, it was with business related gents that I cannot recall the names. But what I do recall, is him always picking up the check ( maybe that's where I get that from ), but most importantly, he had an American Express Platinum Card. That always stuck. Through my childhood, teens, and beyond. I have always wanted one. Its very hard to get. It has no limit and it has a really cool concierge service ( which I doubt they had back in the dinosaur age ).

3. A mont blanc pen. Man. I remember walking into the office a a music exec, so full of himself, so cocky, but fuck, that Pen he used, man, was it fucking great. I used it to sign a contract, and it was flawless. I had never again used one. Until today.

Today, I have achieve those three goals. Its taken 39.94 years. Like they say, rome was not built in a day.

Note to who ever knows me. I don't have any tattoos. I think its lame for people who actually live in the real world. They belong to justin beiber or mike tyson. My last request is pretty dumb, but it will be the last. I always said that the time would come when I would have six zeros in front of a one at the bank. And on that day, that very day it happens, I would get both sleeves tattooed. No exception, and I would get it done by an artist to whom I would give carte blanche.

Anyway. Thats it.  good night.

I remember. Odd sense of feeling. I was babysitting my godparents kids. Great day in the isn hills of Montréal. I made dinner. They wanted mashed potatoes. I didn't know anything. No google or youtube at the time. Back in 1997. I didn't know you hd to book the potatoes first. Try making mashed potatoes without boiling em. LOL


back on the road soon. Sprinter in hand.

I am really into making fins now. Editing and filming and making things different. Working with sound clashes and color and transitions. I find myself looking more and more into the wide world of this new and accessible art. I found these vids that really inspire me to make more and I learn from the eye of the filmmaker...

Back from 7 months...

Eva and I got back last night after 7 months on the road. Lebanon, Spain, Netherlands, Germany... Its been long. Its nice to sleep in my bed. The jet lag is up and hitting us hard. We were up at 4am here. 10am Euro zone time.

For some reason. I wake and all I can feel is sad that my buddy Mike was not with us on this trip.

So we carry on...

Another movie...WHAT!

Big Agnes

For almost a year now, Big Agnes has been supporting my stupid trips, absurd dreams, and cashless climbing trips.

There bags have kept me warm, sheltered from the rain and snow and cold in thier tents and the "hole in wall" jacket is in my climbing pack everyday, and I use it, EVERYDAY.

I want to say...

Boreal to the rescue.

Most of you know I do my best to give back. Sometimes it means ruffling a few feathers to get what I want, and it sometimes means going outside my circle for that help. The ends justify the means no? When Evolv dropped me as a rep in 2009, I was on the lookout for something fresh. At the OR that summer, I swung by and met Jesus, the owner of Boreal shoes. That coincidence also brought me to contact him last summer while trying to get gear for kids in Croatia. Man did he come through. It took some logistics, including shipping them to Spain to me, putting them in Klemen's van bound for Slovenia, then my friends in Istria picked em up and brought em back to there home gym in Pazin.

I want to thank Boreal for making this happen. Petzl also sent me a ton of harnesses that went out to Lebanon and to Pazin, as did the NorthFace with chalk bags.

I cannot stress enough the work and hardships that go into getting something like this done. That would be a whole book worth of words. All I can say is that those smiles and those kids climbing are worth every "NO", phone hangups, un returned emails from most companies I contacted, and totting 200 kilos of gear around the planet.

If you feel like working for free and getting no credit, feel free to join me on my next quest. Who knows, you might even get a free t-shirt. LOL
