I wish I could say that the Rodeo was a really cool event but it wasn't. My guess is that most of the folks that are true Easyriders mag readers are just an older biker demographic and slowly fading out compared to the energy and enthusiasm at the Cycle Source Big Mountain Run or the Horse's Smokeout. The winter Easyrider shows always bring more folks out, but this show was lacking quality rides for the actual bike show along with one particular individual who tried to be the menacing twin to Paul Sr. of Orange County Choppers. I laughed at that one to no end, damn I should have gotten a photo, damn it! Even better was the guy who entered his softail into the custom show which had all bolt on chrome parts and a crappy lightning paint job, but hey he did enter and that was more than I did with my unfinished projects, haha! The one thing that I did see which truly stuck out to me were the motorcycle tractor pull bikes. Talk about some crazy redneck style engineering. Heavy duty fab work on the rear sections so they don't torque right apart from engine strain or the weight strain of the sled. Was definitely interesting to see in action.

What a great time this whole event was. From all the cool new folks I met to all the people that really dug what I am doing with Rusty Knuckles and Gearhead Records, was a damn good time. So many folks to give shout outs to but if you were there and we chatted, hit me up and lets ride and talk shop some more.

drove out to Asheboro, NC today to check out Josh's new bike build and simply shoot the shit. Of course it turned into a 5 hour conversation on bikes but thats just a given, haha! He has some great ideas cookin' on this bike and of course a lot of folks are going to say it looks like a Bill Dodge bike but that is a damn great compliment for sure. Can't wait to see this thing runnin' in the next few months. Take a look at that motor and see if you can figure out what amalgamation it is, that is surely a challenge and I can't wait to hear it fire up.
