Still plugging away ...Keeping busy..Working every weekend..

I picked a few messages asking if I was retired the past couple of days and I was pretty confused till I was told not being at the Golden Gloves registration and I guess some lake shots I have been posting.  Let me tell you I'm around for a little longer doing that photog thing.

Worlds record 2017 "Ice Wheelie " attempt cancelled ..

Normally when I get a cancellation it's because of a promoter , fighter maybe Athletic commission , to day it was nature.  Ryan Suchanek was scheduled once again to do work on ice but due to ice conditions ( its been a tough year lake activities on Wisconsin lakes ) the event is being rescheduled for late February, 2017.  Seem fitting to do a repost of FEBRUARY 7th , 2016.

                        Below is from 2016

On this Sunday February 7th, 2016 , your hero's toss a pigskin and ran around on grass ...My hero's of this Sunday  scrapped a engine around their legs and went  One hundred and thirty Five (135)  plus miles per hour ....Did I mention they were on "Ice" ? ...Oh yeah, also there's that thing about being on one wheel ...

Here's a few quick pick images of the World Class best of the best breaking World Guinness records at Lake Koshkonong , Wisconsin just a few hours ago.  I'm not really sure on the official times but I believe ;

Ryan Suchanek     "Stoppie record" of 252"     @ 86 MPH

Wheelie 136 MPH          (Please note, needs to be checked and confirmed)
