All you need is at least 60 G's or so and you could just have someone toss 1 together like most of the non-bikers do. I have this prepy assholee at my work who did just that. NEVER road before, but his friends got bikes so he put up 72 and had some guy build him a show stopper. Lucky if it ever gets dirty. Poser mf's.

Well, just got back.
Place was totally packed and full of beer and smoke. Hell's Angels and 2 other biker gangs had booths set up. There were probably 30 custom bikes and the rest were dealers selling patches, leathers, and junk.

Rock band was setting up for a show this afternoon and evening. I don't know where everybody is going to stand for it. There was no room.

Talked to a guy who came from Sturgis who had a booth sewing patches on peoples vests and jackets. He was pretty cool.

Several West coast choppers were there through a local dealer.

But all in all not much better then a gunshow.

:D ..know what you mean, I just got back from a show here in IL that was not in a facility large enough. I mean the facility is, but the space for the show was small. Mostly dealers, few leather merchants and the regular small snake oil salesmen. I was rather disappointed, couldn't even get good pics because of all the traffic.

Bike show

Sometimes the best "show" is in the parking lot. I like to see what the regular guy does with his scoot. At least you know that they will crank and run down the highway.
