I've got family in Denver, been out there a lot. Denver fucking rules, more beer then you can shake your dick at, and the hippies all ride their bicycles around in the middle of winter, thats good for a laugh. I've got to say, Denver was 2nd on my list of places to move. I picked florida instead. fuck winter.

I live just north of Denver in Broomfield. If you're here July 15, there's the Love Thy Chopper show. Wednesdays are bike night at Quaker Steak and Lube in Westminster. Run 2 the Hills next weekend, I think? First Thursdays at Crash45. Massive swap in January. Lots of everything: RUBs, 1%ers, scenesters, builders...

It's not bad. Occasionally there are some good choppers and tricked out Harleys. The food is passable, the waitresses are horrible, but there's beer. Better than sitting at home! :)

ah man!! those were my fav of the whole place! did you see the pan was a 50 and the center generator shovel was a 49? THe cone nose shovel on the end was the best bike in the place! There was a pan head with an open primary at one of the booths that was pretty sick too. He had 11,000 grand on it for sale. That one was pretty close.

I believe this is anyone and everyone welcome. The Invite only stuff would normally not be advertised on CC or have a Facebook group. Those events just happen without guys like you and me knowing!
