Toy Machine J-Lay gets the cover of a calendar...

The photo was taken off (by second-handed request?) For the following possible reasons: 1. The risk of possibly promoting the calendar to the possible market for it. 2. The idea that our site was letting the cat out of the bag. (and my response would be that any promotion for your calendar is good promotion, if you read the comments on the post you will see the POSITIVE feedback from the J-Lay fans who are GOING to buy it now.) 3. Perhaps letting the fans of Toy Machine riders' know about such a calendar in some ways will make them NOT buy it. But that sounds retarded. Either way, sorry for bummin' people out, and getting people in trouble.

Toy Machine Toy Team signing - Saturady April 8th

OK, so the contest happened, and Billy was not feeling the wood and the soft asphalt, so he went out like a wuss and didn't pull anything. Matt B did some stuff, but Tommy Sandoval won, and Terrell Robinson got robbed. The whole team besides Diego was there to sign autographs. The people at Sun Diego were super nice to us. They are the shop that put up that giant window display... (scroll down to see it) If you are in San Diego, be sure to go there for all of your shopping needs. It was a VERY POSITIVE DAY OVERALL.
