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.

Five Things You Need To Know About The Kernville Kampout


The Second Annual Kernville Kampout is coming up October 14-16, but you already knew that. Here's a handful of things you may not be aware of:


Kernville Kampout Free Camping

1) CAMPING IS FREE.

Yep. We teamed up with friends and sponsors so we could make camping free. We've reserved the entire campground. Please don't bring giant RVs and trailer queens. This is intended to be mostly motorcycle camping with a few vans, trucks, etc but is certainly not an RV club event. Just pull in any time after 2:00 PM on Friday and pick a spot.


2) 805 BEER IS TASTY.

Just like last year, we will have a ton of ice-cold 805 on hand.

3) LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.


Frandy Campground is right in the middle of town, along the river and easy walking distance to our favorite night spot: the Kernville Saloon. Fishing, tubing, wading, etc in the river is not just allowed, it is encouraged.

4) LIVE MUSIC FROM GUANA BATZ.

Talk about an upgrade over last year! Our friend Pip and the energetic assemble known as the Guana Batz will be live on stage Saturday night, so be ready!

5) TATTOO TRAILER.

The talented artists from Temecula's Old Rose Tattoo are bringing a trailer set-up and will be tattooing Friday and Saturday night. This won't be complicated or free. No reservations, just walk up and wait your turn. They will have a special flash sheet just for this event, plus other stuff to choose from.

For everything else you might need to know about this event, go to: www.kernvillekampout.com

Take off the rose colored glasses...


Think of this the next time you see a handful of top tier sponsor logos presenting, powering, or hosting a mega-chopper show....

"What's the big deal?"

"I don't care who the sponsors are..."

"A couple (of dozen) logos on a flyer never bothers me..."

"I just go for the free beer!"

"I only ride old knuckleheads so none of this applies to me..."


Until you realize there's ulterior agendas at work. Large corporations have successfully infiltrated the blossoming (uncontrolled growth potential) "scene" (for lack of a better word. Ask a hipster for advice if you're confused) by mere "shiny bead" tactics. "We'll give them some free stuff, and they'll eat right out of our hands... ha ha ha!" Pure Fat Cat money men maneuvering. 

So what's this all about then?

SKYNET

Somewhere there is a computer algorithm defined to identify and classify shop phone numbers and addresses and prevent sales from (insert company name here) to your independent "small shop." Effectively denying you the ability to create a unique business and monopolizing the only avenues for new part acquisitions. Of course, you could always "buy Chinese" but you're a prideful kinda guy (or gal) and you wanna support the USA (note to self; most of the parts are still made overseas... shhhhhh).

"None of this sounds very Chopper at all..."

"I'm voting for Hillary, she'll fix everything..."

"I bought my Sportster USED, so I'm okay...."

"I'm one of the extremely few elite that can just have some connected friends fab the parts I need..."

"It's not fair... (insert whaa whaa sounds effects)"


It's (big) business. Nothing more. 

Have a complimentary energy drink and go buy a t-shirt ....


Two Guns, Arizona


Random stop along Route 66 (Hwy 40) on the way to Flagstaff, AZ. If you're planning on skating it, someone's been keeping it pretty clean, just bring a towel or two. Used to camp here for free but now we just make miles. It's an option if you're traveling on the cheap! Lots of history in the place; Diablo Canyon, the closed Zoo, the ghosts... great place to explore if you've got the time.




Seems appropriate to post online...

National Parks 100 year Anniversary


On August 25th 2016 the National Park Service turned 100 year old. We were fortunate enough to be just finishing up a family trip and visiting Arches National Park (about 5 miles north from Moab). Blistering hot during the day and windy rain showers at night! Perfect.
