It's SO OBVIOUS from this clip why I loved Larry so much... He had the face of a model and the body of Greek God!
In all seriousness...how could I have not loved him. He was absolutely great. There are not enough words in the world to describe how special he was and how incredibly lucky I feel to have called him mine. He will forever be missed.
This has become insane to me that there were this many rides honoring Larry last Saturday. So far we had rides across the country from New Jersey to California and across the world in Sweden, Germany, Canada and South Africa. I am speechless. If you did a ride please send me a shot.
Her are the last few that I have gotten plus a couple of shots from our Sweet home Alabama Ride.
I thought when I did the first post I covered all the rides, but I have continued to get pictures from all across the world of rides people did in honor of Larry. I know I continue to say that I am blown away by all of the support and love from everyone, but I truly am.
Many of the pictures sent were from people who said they had never meet Larry, but he made an impact on them and that they had never felt such a loss for someone they had never meet. This whole thing still feels dream like to me. I am not sure if I will ever completely process that he is gone and the plans we had won't ever be. I didn't know people like Larry existed until I meet him, he made life into something that I never dreamed possible and I owe him the world for that. As devastated as I am knowing he won't be here to grow old with me, I do know that I will see him again one day soon in paradise.
Larry...there are not enough words in the universe to describe him. The lucky ones knew him personally, but even at a distance... He somehow made an impact across this country and even world on people. Its hard to put your finger on exactly what "that" was, but whatever it was it worked for him. He was everything you thought he was and more. By no means was he perfect...but sometimes those were the best parts about him. He had a smile that could light up a room, a sense of humor that was not for everyone, a heart of gold and an attitude on life that was amazing.
I learned a lot from Larry, but mostly how to live in the moment. He was so good at that and I always admired him for his that. He was my better half, the love of my life and my best bud.
The Ride For Larry Pierce was more than a success. The overwhelming support from across the world has been insane. Its crazy to think that my Larry touched so many people from here in Alabama...but I guess I am not surprised since to know Larry was to LOVE HIM!
Thank you to everyone. Please keep me in your prayers. XOXO Ashley Pierce
Unfortunately, at this time any orders that were done after April 12, 2014 will not be filled. It has become way too overwhelming for me being at the shop without Larry. I have refunded all of the money on paypal and you should be seeing that soon.
I will have "Son of the South" shirts & a new design "Highway Man Again" shirt at BF6 & on site soon. I am truley sorry for any inconvenience.
For everyone that ordered shirts from our personal site the day after Larry's death, unfortunately we did not have even close to the number in stock and because the shirts were purchased so quickly our online stock manager allowed way more orders to be placed than we could fill. Lowbrow has always printed our shirts and they were also generous enough to sell all of their shirts with our logos that they had in stock the same day to help me…. Which has now whipped out all GARCO SHIRTS for the time being. Lowbrow is still currently filling orders placed on their site and will then get to the ones placed on our site sent out.
I ask please for everyones patience. The number of shirts order from us personally was overwhelming and greatly appreciated. If you have not gotten your shirt yet it will come. It is just me at the shop now and I currently grieving the loss of the love of my life and not handling filling shirt orders.
Thank you for understanding and everyones support through this time.
Larry's Born Free build is coming along (given he started several months earlier this year : )
He is building a 48UL Flathead. The frame is stainless loop tail with 7/8 tubing and 1 1/4 for the backbone, its 3 inches shorter than stock and he narrowed stock panhead tanks. The gas caps were cast by our buddy Leo (@leospeedshop instagram check him our he is rad). The oil tank is finished and mounted as well as the fender and stuts. He got his primary from Jasin Phares yesterday and its killer.
He still has to figure out the headlight, tailight and footcontrols.
