Yo soy Boricua, pa' que tu lo sepas. I'm a former motorcycle technician, bike dragracer, now involved in issues related to social justice. This blog is my personal online diary, a collection of memories from my motorcycle adventures, a place where to display my passion for photographing a city skyline at night, as well as my political soapbox from where I plan to share my personal ramblings and thoughts with the world. Number one fan of the God of War video game franchise, welcome to my blog.
Interests: my hobbies include art, travel, video games, motorcycle riding, landscape photography and post-processing images using Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, Topaz Adjust and Photomatix Pro HDR.

La administracion racista y xenofobica del presidente Trump ha sido agarrada con las manos en la masa, acusada de tratar de transportar en guaguas a immigrantes detenidos en la frontera de Mexico y soltarlos en las calles de ciudades santuario, como venganza para castigar a sus enemigos politicos. Segun el reporte de prensa, el presidente Trump presiono a la secretaria de Seguridad Nacional, Kirstjen Nielsen, para que liberara a los immigrantes detenidos en la frontera sur de Mexico en las llamadas ciudades santuario, para tomar represalias contra el partido democrata en Estados Unidos. No hace ni tres dias que el... Continue reading

This year I filed my taxes at the end of February. That's kind of late for me, I usually do my taxes as soon as I get my W-2's from my employer in mid January. My tax preparer normal fee is $49.00 dollars. Unlike previous years, this time I decided to bite the bullet and pay a little extra to get them via direct deposit. The income tax preparer promised a quick return, I would get them in 7 working days, she said. She's being preparing my taxes for the last 4 years, so I had no reason to doubt... Continue reading

Yesterday, a co-worker asked me why I took the day off. Today is my birthday, and I know the world doesn't stop turning just because it's my birthday, I replied. Besides, the clinic is closed on Christopher Columbus, George Washington and Martin Luther Kings birthdays, I reminded her. It is only fair to celebrate that I am still alive the day I was born. Who among us hasn't needed a break from work? Don't get me wrong, I am not a workaholic, but I am always reminded by my supervisor how much unused paid vacation I'll have accumulated. I return...

A pesar que el xenofobico y racista presidente Trump insulto a Puerto Rico durante su visita a la isla, Rosello ingenuamente penso que ser sumiso, reirle los chistes y tirarse dos o tres selfies con Trump iba a ser una buena estrategia. Esta semana, el Senado en Estados Unidos no aprobo billones de dolares para ayudar los estados afectados por los huracanes, inundaciones y otros desastres naturales. El desequilibrado mental presidente de los Estados Unidos aprovecho esta oportunidad para desquitar su frustracion de el Senado negarle ese dinero, y continua los insultos hacia los puertorriqueños. La estrategia de Ricardo Rosello... Continue reading

Rosello parecia un corderito al lado de Comrade Trump. Todos son igual, Garcia Padilla hizo lo mismo cuando vino Obama a recoger dinero antes de sus ultimas elecciones.

El gobernador de Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rosello, despues que se canso de besarle el trasero al presidente Trump, ahora esta actuando como guapeton de barrio amenazando de darle un puño en la boca. "El gobernador dijo que Trump trata a los puertorriqueños como ciudadanos de segunda clase y afirmó que quiere reunirse con el mandatario para explicarle la data correcta sobre las necesidades de la isla tras el huracán. No se trata de entrar en una competencia de gritos y patadas, no creo que nadie pueda ganarle al presidente en una pelea de gritos y patadas"...... El incompetente gobernador va... Continue reading

Now that I started to print big posters of my favorite images, I am all excited about the possibilities of decorating my man cave and also my office with them. As I mentioned on a previous post, the image I recently found from my trip to the Dragon of the Cheoah Dam is my favorite. I like this picture so much that this week I decided to spend some time working on it to make it as big as possible without losing quality. I had to crop the image a lot, to improve the way it looks. Cropping always involves... Continue reading

Yo siempre he dicho que la vida solo se vive una vez, hay que disfrutarla ahora antes que sea muy tarde.

Not sure how I missed this image when I edited photos from my camera memory card of last year Deals Gap, Tail of the Dragon trip. Found it last night while looking for another photo. Of all the pictures I took from the Cheoah Dam in North Carolina, this image is now my favorite. To see a bigger version of this picture click HERE. I like having some of my favorite pictures to decorate my office; they include some of my motorcycle images. A group of people came to my office after I finished running the support group today and... Continue reading

Spring is just around the corner. Went to the garage where my bike is stored, to change oil, filter, check brake and clutch fluid levels and install the battery. During winter season my bike's battery sits in my apartment kitchen connected to a battery tender. My bike has been hibernating, sitting in the garage since last October. Haven't even started the bike all winter, I haven't checked it in several months. It's still cold outside, here in Philly the cold weather is still lingering. I hate cold weather with a passion. We are in mid-March and now there's talk of... Continue reading

Mucha gente no entiende que Estados Unidos saca mas dinero de Puerto Rico que el que aporta. Es interesante como a esta fecha todavia el pueblo se deje manipular con esas falsedades.

Eduardo Pagan es el presidente de la Asociacion de Navieros de Puerto Rico y Gerente General de TOTE (Totem Ocean Trailer Express) Maritime para Puerto Rico y el Caribe. Este vende patria tiene la desfachatez de escribir una columna en el periodico El Nuevo Dia donde el alega que la Ley Jones contribuye a la prosperidad de Puerto Rico. ¿Cuanto le habran pagado a este charlatan por escribir esa columna? Este lacayo del imperio explotador de Estados Unidos es vice presidente y gerente general de una compañia que es beneficiada por la Ley Jones. La Ley Jones no se hizo... Continue reading

El fraude arropa al gobierno de Puerto Rico. Y pensar que este chanchullo se ha destapado gracias a un caso de violencia domestica de parte del exlegisladron Ramon Luis Rodriguez Ruiz hacia la exdirectora de su oficina, Soniel Torres Suarez. El mismo dia que este legisladron acude a su juramentacion como representante, imparte instrucciones para iniciar el despilfarro de fondos y la creacion de corporaciones fantasmas en su gobierno. Estoy 100% seguro que esto es parte de un patron de corrupcion sistemica que permea en la politica de Puerto Rico. Mientras tanto, ya estan perfilandose los candidatos del partido de...

Hace unos meses que he estado pensando en hacer un Podcast en Ingles y en Español. La transicion de escribir en mi blog y grabar un Podcast no seria mucha para mi ya que requiere casi todo el mismo equipo de sonido que un Motovlog. En otras palabras, como hace un tiempo que he estado grabando Motovlogs, practicamente tengo todo lo que se necesita para hacer un Podcast. La idea de hacer este Podcast es excelente, no se como no se me ocurrio anteriormente. Especialmente para los meses de invierno que la motora esta en el garage guardada por el... Continue reading

When I was a young grease monkey mechanic with a serious addiction to motorcycles, due to my finances I was never able to afford more than one bike at a time. That did not prevented me from driving past motorcycle shops, stopping and drooling over the bikes. According to Scott Bruce Duncan, MBS (multiple bike syndrome), also known as cycleholism, "is a progressive disease that scientists have yet to discover... Continue reading

Ricky es el tipico vende patria que prefiere besarle el trasero a la nacion que mantiene nuestro pueblo bajo el yugo, en vez de luchar por nuestra independencia.

Si usted es de las personas que lee las noticias diariamente y le preocupa la politica y el futuro de su pais, me imagino ha leido del escandalo por la supuesta intervencion de los rusos en las elecciones de Estados Unidos en el 2016. En mi opinion, al los rusos intervenir en las elecciones del 2016, los rusos hicieron lo mismo que la nacion americana ha hecho por mas de 100 años en otros paises; intervenir en la politica de un pais para desestabilizar el gobierno. Lo fascinante de esta realidad, es lo ignorante que el pueblo americano ha sido... Continue reading

Last summer, one of my photography meetup groups hosted their annual picnic event in New Jersey. This time they selected the J. Own Grundy Park at the Exchange Place in Jersey City. These picnics are always a lot of fun, you get to meet and socialize with other photography aficionados, and I always learn something new. This is my second year attending. At this event I got the chance to... Continue reading
