    Well. Vinnie's gone. I can't believe how sad that made me. I fear my favorite family may have peaked. I hope not, but I have a feeling we are going to be reading one day that the Teutuls have declared bankruptcy because they expanded too quickly. I think the "chopper craze" is waning. I always felt like Vinnie was part of their family and I would have thought that Paul Senior would have done something to keep him around. He's a lot more valuable than Mikey.

    Wouldn't it be something if Vinnie ended up with his own show? He mentioned something about "ScooterVille". ;)

    I've always felt that the chopper craze was a passing fad. I read on another forum that Vinnie and Cody was spotted together buying equipment. I hope Vinnie does well.

    He just got tired of running in place at full speed for 5 years. Build after build on tight deadlines with no advancement. Hmm, sounds familiar.

    I don't know how anyone could work at that place. So much destruction, yelling, anger, disrespect, etc. I realize we only see a few hours of their lives, but still, it can't be fun or healthy to be part of it.

    I hope the best for Vinnie. He deserves better than what they offered him. And I hope Rick follows, because he is way too good for them.

    And yeah, I think these guys are going to slowly crash and burn showwise. Only so many ways to say the same crap over and over. And while it's fun to watch the trainwreck, it does get old to see Sr yell at Jr, and Jr ignore Sr.

    What was the other forum if you don't mind me asking. I'd love to find a way to get an email to Vinnie. I think the Teutuls blew it by letting him get away. They are way too "family centric" and should have treated him as family. I wonder if he and Cody are going to start a business? Vinnie is good people. Hard working honest family man. He deserves some of the riches the Teutuls are throwing around. He did as much to help that business grow as they did. Like somebody already said, it sucks not to be family. :(

    I think he would have settled for some regular and major pay increases. He works harder than any of them and lives in the smallest house. It's gotta suck for him to see the Teutuls getting all the accolades and all the attention. Not to mention their new cars, boats, motorcycles, and houses (with custom made swimming pools). I think Paul senior made it clear how he feels about the whole thing when he said "anybody can be replaced". Well sure they can be replaced, but the place will never be the same without Vinnie.

    I used to do design work for a family company years ago. Not like the AC family where it's yelling and jerkism all the time. But as nice as they were peopelwise, their shop was the same way with non-family.

    Vinnie has my vote, I hope he finds a new way to be happy.

    It's still on? It got old after the 10 bike they made. :rolleyes:


    One show I never under stood is, just who said it was OK to use the bits of the Statue of Liberty to build the Liberty bike? DoesnÂ’t that stuff belong to the US government park service? Yes I know the co. that did the restoration work said it was OK, but still........
