As some of you might have heard, Matt had been suffering from a bout with cancer. This morning he finally left this side of the road and traveled to the other side. Matt and Dean had been a huge amount of support for the Deathtraps since day one. Though we had grown apart over the past years, there was never a party or a ride that went by, when we didn't reminisce about the good old days of riding our choppers to a DicE release party. We love you Matt, you will be missed.

We recently found out a friend of ours, Vince, has cancer. Vince is one of those dudes who lives life wide open, the one with epic stories of adventure when we are kicking in around the campfire on motorcycle runs or parties. He's an awesome human, dad, skater, biker, and most importantly friend. He needs our help now trying to beat this thing. He's not one to ask for help, but his illness has kept him from working, so now he needs some.
Help out anyway you can, check HERE for more info and a way to donate. There will also be a benefit for him coming up in March, so stay tuned if you're in the central, northern, or southern California area.

Actually the address is right there, but you get the idea. Never made it to this show, but we've been lucky to make quite a few of the Rogues party's throughout the past couple of years. Maybe some of them will make it to our 10 year...
If you're in the area, check it out. Clubs and bikes from all over Europe will be there for the show. More info on the Rogues website.
The season is starting again! First Nor Cal Cycle Swap is happening this Sunday. We'll be there, along with Basket Case Magazine. Come out, buy some parts you don't need, a shirt that will eventually be a shop rag, and talk to some guys you'll regret having a conversation with!
We pushed the party date back one week to May 20th. It is still going to be at the Old Corner Saloon, and there will be bands, a raffle, camping and of course good times. Hope to see everyone there, stay tuned for more updates!
