hotrods and hillbillies 2012

it was another great year for hotrods and hillbillies. we rode with a crew of 13 people down to nashville. lots of rad cars to look at. was stoked to see dave and scott's bikes that were just finished. about the time the burnouts started, schmatlz decided to hot dog it in the gravel. he got bucked and broke his collarbone. last year he broke down before we got out of indy. this year he made it to nashville. hopfully next year he completes to the round trip. hang in there nathan! we rode a different round back to indy. all back roads. pretty epic day.

field report: vintage motorcycle days

this was the 2nd year i've gone to mid-ohio vintage motorcycle days. last year i went one day and it wasn't enough, this year i went two days and it still wasn't enough. next year i'm going for the whole weekend and taking a bike to ride around. we spent most of the time in the swap meet, but we did make our way over to the races and bike show for a while. my iphone died on saturday, but here are some photos i managed to get.

theres probably $80k worth of bikes on this trailer. a cb750 sandcast, a cb750 with 1/10th of a mile and another with 4 miles.

way into the custom painting...
casey's first time. needless to say, he was stoked.
honda's stock cafe bike: GB500. first time i've seen one in person.
bringing home the goods. casey scored a triumph chopper and tim got a cl100 for $70. brand new tires for $35, yes. $10 cb550 exhaust, don't mind if i do. 10 cents for old chopper mags, gimme. deals here are to good to pass up!

mayhem fest

went to see Anthrax, Slayer, and Motorhead, but people watching is where it's at. saw so much debauchery, boobs, and fights. i swear every dirt-ass from small town Indiana comes out to this.
