A Dirty Rotten Fäwkinnae Bumpersticker Story

  I was recently a vendor at the Dirty Rotten Bikerfest—and what a great time we had. Toward evening as it was starting to get dark, a couple came up and bought a few things, a “Fawkinnae Let’s Have a Beer!” t-shirt for her son and a women’s “Fawkinnae Let’s Ride” pink hoodie for her—for Mother’s Day.

Fawkinnae - A Bikers Guide to Pronounciation

A couple years ago I invited my daughters friend Emilee to come along with me to the Flood Run. The "Flood Run" is a motorcycle ride held twice a year, spring and fall, and is currently a charity event for Gillette Children's Hospital. The ride runs approximately between Hudson, WI and Red Wing, MN along both sides of he Mississippi and St. Croix Rivers. Emilee is a creative person, skilled with a camera and I wanted to see what would happen if she videotaped bikers at the Nauti Hawg in Diamond Bluff, WI. I simply asked her to photograph people as they attempted to read her Fawkinnae shirt... she kicked ass! #fawkinnae #floodrun #nautihawg
