Open Road Music Video Starring Joe Janiak – Directed, Shot & Edited by Todd Clark

  1. One of the members of my HOG chapter recently sent me this video. I have seen it posted by Steve Johnson at Biker Pilosophy. It is a super great song and music video because the words of the song hit on so many motorcycle truisms that we can’t seem to vocalize when someone asks us what is so great about riding a motorcycle or a Harley Davidson. I like how it says flat out we all ride for different reasons.

  2. My favorite part is how the dude parks his Lexus on the street and his Harley in the garage! Second favorite part is “lay her down slow”…reminds me of Dave’s Cruisers Make Better Lovers post.

  3. Really nice video. It gave me a nice start to my Monday morning! Di…I liked the “lay her down soft…” line myself. Thanks for sharing!

  4. It’s amazing how different we all are.

  5. Yes it is amazing how different we all are. You would think that since we all love riding Harley Davidson motorcycles than we would be one big homogeneous black leather clad group with the same likes and dislikes. But that is not the case. Each HOG chapter is different. Within my HOG chapter we have members with very different likes and dislikes. Some like to go fast, some slow. Some like long distance riding some short. Some are white collar and some are blue. We are all different and enjoy this sport in different ways and get different things out of it.

  6. I just want to know where I can get one of those awesome t-shirts the dude is wearing in the video!!!

  7. I want one too.

  8. http://stores.ebay.com/Creative-Solutions-North

    It is run by Todd Clark , the guy who directed the video

  9. Jay… did you know that your blog is on Central Time???? I posted my comment at 641pm Eastern Time… Nothing to do with the video, which is AWESOME by the way, but it just struck me as odd… oh well… nevermind….

  10. Laurie, I beat you to it…ordered Jay a t-shirt yesterday. Unofrtunately they only have women’s tees in medium and small…and you know as well as I do that my “girls” just won’t fit in that!

    And the time was set to Eastern Standard Time, apparently it didn’t automatically adjust for Daylight Savings Time! 🙁 (all fixed now though)

  11. I would like to talk to “Joey” about booking him at Pawhuska Motorsickle Rally. Anyone know how to reach him? If so, please contact me at darrell@oklahomabiker.net
    Thanks!

  12. hey where can i get a shirt like the one on the video open road. my father in law rides and i want to get him one. email my at jasonjboe@yahoo.com.

  13. Creative solutions north ebay store is under construction, is it going to be back or is it gone for good, any idea?

  14. please a someone to send me the lyric

  15. J.I. – Here are the lyrics to the best of my abilities, enjoy:

    Its a freedom loving lifestyle I adore
    She’s waiting for me behind my garage door
    She’s all dressed up and she’s ready to roll
    Never talks back always begging for more.
    ~
    If you don’t ride then you don’t know
    Where I’ve been and where I’m going
    Its all about the freedom of the open road
    Open the throttle and roll
    ~
    Everybody rides during riding season
    They ride different there bikes for different reasons
    Once you get on it it is hard to get off
    If you go down I hope you lay her down soft
    ~
    If you don’t ride then you don’t know
    Where I’ve been and where I’m going
    Its all about the freedom of the open road
    We see more through our sunglass lens
    Than you’ll ever see in your Mercedes Benz
    It’s time to feel the freedom of the open road
    open the throttle and roll
    ~
    You don’t ride you don’t know
    Its in our blood, its in our soul
    Its all about the healing you get from the open road
    ~
    Along the way strangers become friends
    This brotherhood of ours never ends
    we play lifes hand like a poker run
    Sacrifice your time for the fallen ones
    ~
    If you don’t ride you don’t know
    Where I’ve been and where I’m going
    Its all about the freedom of the open road
    It doesn’t matter if your young or old
    Running with the pack or rolling on your own
    Its all about the freedom of the open road
    Grab your handles and roll

  16. thanks Princess Di you are amazing see you

  17. Where can I purchase one of his CDs with the song “Freedom of the Open Road”? I’ve been looking for it but can’t seem to find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Mark

  18. The director of the video used to run an eBay store where you could purchase the t-shirt and CD (or mp3…I forget which). But the store appears to be closed. From my perspective, this guy is missing a golden marketing opportunity here! But oh well, its his loss I guess. If I ever find anything again, I will post an update here for all of the Joey J & the Shovelheads loyal fans.

  19. I cannot believe no one seems to know more about Joey J & the Shovelheads. I would love to book this band at the XXXth Anniversary of Biker Days in the Great Osage, Pawhuska, Oklahoma.

  20. This video is so awesome, I have searched all over the internet to find where to buy the music and shirt.. Seems it is non-existant..

    Anyone got any help out there and direction where to look.. Nobody has this awesome music for sale and the shirt, they are missing on a VERY BIG oppurtunity…

  21. WEb site at e-bay does not exist ?? Tee is awsome and I am looking for at least
    four for my family of riders.. Where can I get them -12/22/2009 ? thanks – God Bless and MERRY CHRISTMAS… Rick

  22. Joey J will have a new website in January 2010 at http://www.lowlevelflyers.com

  23. To: Princess Di

    You wrote: “ordered Jay a t-shirt yesterday.”

    I have been searching the web for 2 days now and can’t find a site.

    Would you please share where you ordered it from with us?

    I’d love to get a few. One for myself and a few others for presents.

    Thanks,

    Dennis

  24. Dennis, I will inquire of Joey J on where we can get t-shirts during the month of December 2009. Otherwise I guess we just have to wait til next month and go to http://www.lowlevelflyers.com

  25. Here is Joey J’s response:

    Hello Jay!
    You can send the people to jmassimoj@yahoo.com for now. That is one of my personal addresses.
    Thank You!
    Joey J

  26. Hi Jay do you know if Joey J ever got his web site up
    the link you gave in the blog does not work.
    thanks
    John

  27. Sorry, no idea.

  28. The latest from Joey J is the website is delayed and he is re-recording Open Road. He still says the best way to contact him is through the above e-mauil address: jmassimoj@yahoo.com

  29. I want more. Music.Shirts.Video. I hate when I find something that explains the passion and then it gets taken away.

  30. Getting ready to ride to Billings, Montana from New Orleans. Would love to have a full CD of Joeys music. Really pumped me up now more anxious than ever to hit the road

  31. Where can I get the video or audio of this song. And I would also like to get the tshirt

  32. I am really interested in getting a open road t-shirt and the CD that I see mentioned in the youtube video. Only thing is the site they point too is not there.. Anyone know where I can get my hands on the t-shirt or the CD, more primarily the shirt is what I want..

    Anyone please help…

    Thanks,
    Bill

  33. hey guys! anyone have some news??
    I sent an email to J Janiak.. btu he’s don’t reply..
    Thnks,
    M. Timm

  34. No news. Sorry. Obviously there is a demand that is not being met here.

  35. Love the handle bars on his bike when can I get a set and what is the name of them.

  36. I think Joey is a fake

  37. Hi Greg,

    Sorry to inform you but, Joey is not a fake. Several months ago, i placed a fairly large order for T-Shirts. I gave the as gifts to friends and relatives. Out of the blue, Joey actually called me and we had a nice conversation. I have talked to him a few times since then. He is a really nice guy, the bike in the video is his bike. He is having some problems getting his site up and running. He lives in or near Los Angeles, I live in Missouri. We have never met, I’m not rich or famous yet he was kind enough to call. To me, that’s not a fake.

    Respectfully,

    Denis

  38. Hey guys, so I tried to contact Joe.. but no sucess…

  39. Yo Kid Cuz i need some T-Shirts XMAS right around the corner You dont Ride You dont know soLay her down Slow………IM OUT PEACE

  40. Hey, all I can say is the Video was shot in and around Cleveland, Ohio. I ride those roads. I know the Doug Out parking lot when I see it. I know the Metro parkway when I see it. I know Jacob’s field when I see it. I am looking for the American Flag shirt he is wearing in the Video. I was soooo excited when a friend sent me the video, and now reading all the comments here, kinda disappointed. I hope they realize how much everyone that rides loves that song.

  41. Nothing yet..
    I sent emails to Joe’s, but no answer..
    Anybody can contact him??
    there’s much people interested in your job.. cd’s and t-shirts..

    Thanks,

    Hello Dennis,
    Thank you soooo much for keeping me informed about the demand for the Open Road t-shirts and song.
    If you can let your blog audience know that I am in the process of building a website which will be http://www.bluecollarbikers.com I am no longer using http://www.lowlevelflyers.com. I am also going to have the re-recorded version of Open Road available for download on Itunes in January! I am very excited to get my fellow riding enthusiasts what they want. I am anxious to get everything rolling smooth as well however, It’s taking longer than I thought to put in place all the protection for the song and the merchandise!
