BORN-FREE 6 ?

Wow it's hard to believe that BF5 was almost a month ago..all the planning and work that goes into this show( for everyone involved) is over in a blink of an eye. The dust has finally settled a bit and unfortunately for us we need to make a decision on BF6. The site needs a commitment very soon or the dates will be gone and park rented to someone else. We had a great show and if definitely was much bigger than the previous year.. is that good or bad not really sure? We had a lot of growing pains this year and some drama but that's life. We can't please everyone and some don't want it even if we could. I did learn some things this year... The show is not going to work for everyone ( including builders, vendors, sponsors or spectators) & that's ok, we also need  to thicken our skin a bit .When you put all your time & effort, you pour your heart and soul into something you love and then people trash you it's a tough pill to swallow...but that's the deal and we get it. We also need more help..a lot more and lastly if we  do the show again we need to get back control of it before it goes the wrong direction. Oh.. I also forgot to mention we did not sell the show
..infact it's never been discussed so don't believe rumors or spread em. If you want to know something just ask us..      I found this flyer from the first show..man that was fun!

The show was the business man, haters are gonna hate no matter what!! You cats did an amazing job and like Mrflameman57 said the positives out weigh the negatives(none in my opinion) by far. Keep up the good work brother and I can't wait for next years show.

I've been to every Born Free to date and they have gotten bigger and better each year. I totally loved BF2 the most in Signal Hill (but I was merely a spectator there... so that explains it)(free beer). This year we had a double wide booth and sold more t-shirts than at any other single "vendor" event in our Lady Hump / Gasser Lounge history! CRFyou shirts were a fucking smash!!! ~ Thanks everyone! Can't believe how hot it was but whatever... sorry for everyone stuck in traffic... hope we quenched your thirst if you swung by? can't wait for next year... we might triple the booth! Mike and Grant; just do your thing! Anyone there and unhappy isn't as unhappy as the millions who never had the chance to attended a BF... :-(

I have been to all but number 1.
I think they have all gotten getter each year. That said , I can only hope tree is another. Yeah it was hot, yeah it was crowded, if it wasn't the haters woulda complained about that too.
Maybe it's time to start charging for admission. It would weed out some of the freeloaders and whiners. I'd pay for the experience.
IF that was the last, I thank you for what you for what you have done. It's been a great ride.

Heavy Thursdays - July 2017

Here are some photos from Heavy Thursday earlier this month.  I'm still busy sifting through all the photos from Full Tilt which was just two days after this.  This was like the pre-party to the pre-party.

I rode my 883R:

I got my first glimpse at Ryan's new bike:


Heal up Zack...

Lots of crazy details on this one:

Cool old trike:

Flaked:

Always lots of good bikes to see:

Of course, I can't forget this boat-themed bike.

Just kidding.  I made the mistake of calling it "boat-themed" when I first posted photos of it.  I was corrected and shown the sidecar is truly a fully functioning boat!!!  The details on this thing are incredible and I especially love the arcade joystick and buttons.  The retractable wheels on the bottom for easy loading/unloading are genius.

The next Heavy Thursday is August 3rd!!!

Two Wheel Disorder - 8/19

Just helping spread the word for a new event this year that looks pretty fun...  Two Wheel Disorder will be held on August 19th at Midway MX Park in Plainview, MN (southeast Minnesota).  There's racing (dirt oval), a bike show, and lots more.

They're also busy building a scrambler out of a 1977 ironhead Sportster to raffle off.  It looks insane so far (in a good way).  I seriously hope whoever wins it immediately takes it out on the motocross course for a victory lap.
