Oily Souls Detroit - Ignition

We wondered if we could get 50 people to ride down to the show when we first started planning this 9pm the door to the tasting room counted over 800. Parking was jammed around the building and the streets were lined with people drooling over the bikes that rode in. We sold out of just about everything - the distillery ran out of whiskey.  We grossly underestimated the turn out for sure, but I feel our little team nailed just about everything else.  The vibe was cozy, the venue was perfect and the invited bikes were mind bending. It felt like the start of something big - we are already planning the next one.  Thanks to Wes from junk with wheels for the pics!  More coverage to come here and HERE

Thanks to these FINE folks!

Nothing is free these days - EXCEPT for the admission to our show. Creating a happening like this costs a lot of money; venue, advertising, insurance, security, port-john's, lighting, prizes, trophies, t-shirts, music, food, on and on  it goes. How do we do it and still charge nothing at the door?  With the help of these fine folks who donated cash, time and product because they really care about our cozy little sub-culture.  Please help them out by supporting their companies in return.  They are all into this for the same reason you are - because they LOVE motorcycles!

Born Free 5 - PT8 - The Evening Before..

Before the masses descended upon the ranch was a good time to get to know some of the featured bikes.  The vibe the night before is cool - a very mellow and happy time for most (Grant and Mike would probably disagree) because all the heavy lifting is over.  The only lifting going on after 7 the night before involves cans of your favorite beverage.  The calm before the storm.

Born Free 5 - PT7 - The Garage Company

Why's it so difficult to find good parts these days?  Because Yoshi's out there....  The mind blowing power of the Garage Company in not new news to anyone paying attention but to see it in person is still one of the most overwhelming experiences I've ever had.  Yoshi shop was already amazing even when it was at the old smaller Venice location - this new building however, from a sheer magnitude point of view dwarfs the old place in more ways then one.  Found a lot of stuff for my personal collection this trip - at least enough to fill my one saddle bag.  Thanks to Yoshi and crew for all the hospitality!
