Biker Jim gets a special guest Thu, 11/19/09 8:45 PM (permalink)
Yesterday was a pretty good day at the cart.  There is some language, but no one expects this guy to be too PC.

        First off, this guy can eat!  He wolfed down the first 3 brats...started faltering a bit on number 4, looked a little like he was hurting by number 5.  Us feeding him a slice of cheesecake for afters, well, that was just cruel.  He is a seriously nice guy.  We started getting a bit crowded with passerbys and he would sign anything, take a picture with anyone, answer any question.  That evening he did a lecture in a theater of about 3500 people...wearing a Biker Jim T-Shirt.  Almost peed my pants.  I am the luckiest hot dog guy around.

          Well, now that Tony's been, I guess I ought to cruise over next time I'm in Colorado.

             Good going, Jim. Enjoy!

              Biker Jim - You, sir, are living the good life.  I am bummed that I didn't get out to Denver to see you this year, but hopefully back on track next year!  Give my best to the lovely Mrs. Biker Jim...and stay reasonably warm this winter!

                Congrats, Jim. I saw a show about a year ago that mentioned Tony grew up in Bergen County, New Jersey. It showed him visiting Hiram's, a popular Jersey hot dog joint.

                    You deserve the recognition.
                    It was great to see you this past summer and I can assure you that Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs will appear on one of my top 10 lists for 2009!

                          Jim,

                          I've told you this before, "You are my hero." I'm so very proud of you.

                          Mark

                                Chicagostyledawg, for whatever reason you can't directly link to it...you have to go via this page: http://bovineuniversity.tvheaven.com/sounds.html then to the Bovine University or It Smells Like Hot Dogs links.

                                    Jim,
                                     
                                    Congratulations for the great work and the well-deserved publicity.  I think Anthony Bourdain should count himself fortunate to meet you.  Hope to make it to Denver one of these days and have some of that outstanding food.

                                      Thanks everyone.  I appreciate all the well wishes.  I'm still a bit freaked out, but very happy.  And by the way Mark, you're my hero.

                                          I was able to see Bourdain at his Des Moines talk in October. I was one of the last in line to get his autograph. I mentioned that he looked tired. His comment: "It beats peeling carrots."

                                          Biker Jim, Kudos to you!. Can't wait to go to Colorado to visit you.
