I may not make it up this Thursday, but I'll get up there eventually. There is a pre 72 rod and bike show in Tremont this Saturday, Aug. 25, called the Bombs Away Bash. It's at the Twisted Spoke Saloon. It's an all day event, bands and beer. I won't be there all day, but I was gonna make an appearance in the afternoon. If any of you decide to make it over let me know.

Right on I'll look for you.....

I thought I saw your bike in the fence, but I didn't see you.. Ran into the TCU guys, Car99r and Copper, cool guys. When I asked about you, they said you just left. I'll try to catch up to you some other time.

Sounds like the guys I work with are talking about making the Quaker State Thursday night deal an every week thing. If any of you plan on making it up 8/30, I'll try to track you down.

Yea sorry man I was there for a little over an hour but was kind let down but oh well still glad I made it. Also I voted for bike #8

blackedout
02-17-2013, 3:58 PM
I was there around 11. I was torn between 8 and 9 and ended up voting for 9. Anyone see the FXE on the corner. Guy put a pan top on a cone shovel bottom! Pretty neat bike. More knockoff tshirts than anything......

MeanBean
02-17-2013, 5:54 PM
I didn't even vote.. there was a crowd around the Budweiser bike.. but I wasn't impressed. My buddy help build that red pan that was for sale.. He also showed me some pics of his new build a drop seat Yamaha Venture? Some big framed tourer with the original vmax engine. I told him about this place and told him that the dudes here would love it.

PapaBear4
02-17-2013, 6:58 PM
Are you talking about the red and black '55 panhead? That was a good looking bike. The one thing I was disappointed in was that none of the shops were their. None that I knew at least like kapital city kustoms and ace of spades and so on. Maybe they were and I just didn't see their sign. When do the bike nights tend to start back up?:cheersmate:

MeanBean
02-17-2013, 7:42 PM
Yea, that bike. That was one sweet scoot. I really am not familiar with too many shops up there, so I wouldn't know about that. Barry's American Cycles guy was there, and Roger's parts from Bloomington was there.. other than that I really don't know. My gold mines tend to be the milk crates full o random shit.. those guys tend to deal with custom chrome shit or by takeoffs..
did you see that rusty narrow springer that a couple dudes at a small table had for sale? I don't know jack about springers, but the $100 OBO price tag was appealing.. I hesitated a bit too long though, it was sold as I went back to check it out again.. I wish I knew more about them..

Hey boys and girls! I'll be flying out of Korea and right back into the land of Lincoln next Tuesday night. I'm planning on checking out the quacker state thing when I get back. Is it worth checking out?

From Texas here....up here in Illinois with my job. Working and staying over Jacksonville, and have driven around Springfield a little to check it out. Just thought I'd see if there's anything going on around here now. If the rain would stop for a minute, it'd be great to ride a little!

WingNut
05-11-2013, 8:44 PM
Revjinx I know there is weekly "bike night" at quacker state and lube on Thursday nights. Seen a few photos and it's not a chopperfest by any means but it might be worth killing a night and getting a beer. I'm planning on going next week.

EvilSSP
05-14-2013, 5:03 AM
I may head out for a while today. Looks like rain once again for Thurs night...

revjinx
05-14-2013, 10:07 AM
Yeah, I was planning on checking out the "bike night"...but then looked at the forecast. All this rain is getting a little ridiculous. Today and tomorrow look pretty wonderful though.

So, are there any cool roads/routes/etc that would make for interesting rides around here? Maybe something scenic, with some twisty turnies, etc?

WingNut
05-14-2013, 8:38 PM
Got held over in Korea for another week so the weather isn't affecting me to much. I should be back and riding next week....

Hop on 66 and go get lost. Take in south down curran rode and ride the old bricks from 1890s

blackedout
05-16-2013, 2:03 PM
Not much scenic or twisty. The best close by is out around lake springfield, pretty twisty and nice to look at. Go West out of Jacksonville on 104, it's nice once you get by the river.

revjinx
05-16-2013, 5:12 PM
Yeah, that's a big difference in here and back home in Texas....plenty of beautiful rides, and lots of fun twisty roads. But I'm sure I can head out and find something interesting.
