I slept as much as i could yesterday to try and recoupe from the hectic weekend with our show, the Comune show, the swapmeet, and a Thirsty Isle bacon blue cheese burger...still need a nap.
Anyway, a big thank you goes out to everysingle person that sponsored, rode in, attended, and helped us promote and put on the Born-Free show. There were over 200 bikes from as far away as Chicago, Minnesota, Washington, Oakland, San diego, Vegas, and all over southern california as well as people from just as far, if not farther attending the show.
We did our best to feed you good food, drinks, free stuff, and hope you all got a stomach FULL of the best propper choppers out there today. We did give away 13 awards ranging from the Most Far Out, to Best In Show, and we did this with the help of some of your friends, peers, and motorcycle industry icons as judges. As soon as we find the list of the winners and the judges that helped select them we'll let you know.
Thanks to Tony, ryan, Tim, and the Ali Bobber at Classic Cycles for all their hard work and helping hands. Thanks to the Nash, Joe, Jimmy White, and Ez for pitching in just because they wanted to. We couldn't have done it with out you guys. And this probably would't have happened without Mike Davis (the Born in Born-Free) who has been shoveling on the coal for the past 30 days since we all decided to join forces and put on the show. He and has been an unstopable force in seeing the show through to the end.
We'll keep bringing you pics and stories from the day as we catch up on some R&R.
Some of our esteemed judges were:
Chris from MC Art
Josh Kurpius and Brian Harlow
T-Bone of NOISE
Jeremiah from Love Cycles
Dean Micetich from Dice
Takada from Deluxie in Japan
Alonzo Burego picked the Vincent Joaquin Burego Memorial Best in Show award
