"What do you think of the bike for Gruttola? I was the foot in the ass that got that project going. I promised Joe I’d get him a new bike. I have taken care of both Joe and George [Gallo] in the past. Gotta keep those guys riding. Another funny story, I just got Dave Mirra hooked up with a 26" Master. I joked with Dave reminding him that back in ‘88 I told him the Plywood Hoods would always take care of him and it still holds true. I’m very happy I can give back in some way."—Brett Downs
