Dont sweat it Strange Brew gets beat out by trailered in bikes too..these old Knucks that we actually ride just dont have that white glove shine the judges look for I guess..screw em it's way more fun to ride them than shine em up and show anyway.
It just seems kinda wierd. I use easyriders (60's&70's) for inspiration. Guess times have changed.
Just think when you and I are riding to Born Free all them show winners will be sitting in a garage.hahaha
It's too bad you had to experience what goes on at an Easyriders show as far as who wins what.It's nowhere near a level playing feild when it comes time to had out the trophys.Easyriders shows BLOW! Why do you think they added the Limpnickie Lot to the show? Because, all the older guys have been fucked over too many times in the past by the judges, and won't put thier bikes in them anymore, or attend. Same thing with vendors. Who wants to pay an outrageous vendor spot fee, and show your goods to nobody? That's why they only have a handful of shows left, nobody goes to them anymore. Guys wouldn't even put their bikes in when Easyriders was offering a 'no entry fee" and 2 free passes to attend. They played themselves out of Denver over 3 years ago.
Oh well. I think the lot is super good for the easyrider events. It brings a little bit more if an edge to what is happening in the big building. This not just a lifestyle for me. I eat sleep and shit motorcycles. I am dedicated to seeing this industry make it and thrive. I think alot of the allure has been lost due to the fact that people don't ride as much anymore. It's more about showing off. This weekend people were genuinely intreged in what was happening over by the lot. Loud music. Awsome bikes and cute women. Not usually seen at large shows anymore
Warren, you set a standard with what you build and how you ride. The riders are still buried under the flash right now. You got an eye for the spirit of the road, while those judges still have an eye for the spirit of the trailer lot . A bike is no better than what you do with it and you know it. In ten years your standards will be the same and the industries standards will have changed, again. Maybe for the better. And if it does go that way it will be thanks to people like you. Keep it up. Hate that I missed you on a visit to the South.
I would have to say it was the best bike there. Thanks again Sethro
The only thing even close to yours was the eagle bike.
Best bike there for sure. Not into the garbage wagons with all the dodads, fancy dangley shit and other unecessary garnishments. The show judges follow the trend. Thanks for keeping it real.
one of my favs i agree with seth
Your bike is gay. That's why it didn't win shit.
Dude, that bike behind yours in the picture is the fucking tits! I hope that took home first. Bike shows are fucking gay dude! Your knuck is killer, you dont need ER staff of today telling you that..
Your bike is really cool.
I fuckin told you to put the LED lights on under the tank and hit the switch when the judges came by but NO you didn't want to fuckin listen to "The" Roadside Marty so you got what you deserved pal!!!
Needs moar tire. Er, wait, this is 2010. I mean, needs moar baggz.Show bikes suck. Don't worry until you start winning Easyriders shows, then you're really in trouble.
That's my shovel trike below. Your knuck was my favorite bike at the show. It also had the best paint job there.Scotty
