Here he goes again on his own. Ryker lives in Florida, a man without conviction. He’s a man who doesn’t know how to sell contradiction. He flags red, gold, and green. That’s red, gold and green. He was Mr. Heartland Leather 2014 in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Kansas. He bought his real first six string. He bought it at the five and dime. He played til his fingers bled. It was the summer of ’69.
Turn around. He entered the world of fetish and kink in a way that many do – at the Ramrod Bar in Fort Lauderdale. There was nothing he could do . . . a total eclipse of his heart.
His mantra is to build up your confidence so you can be on top for once. He’s just happy to be the next judge for you and for contests, leather and rubber, across the world. He’s ee it all go down and he’ll make you start to . .. . smile. He says to contestants – Carry on my wayward sons. There’ll be peace when you are done. He has more than a feeling – he can hear the old song they used to play – and is going to watch someone walk away – with the title of Mr. New England Leather.
