pale Did you say store built Choppers???
Looks like a great show anywho, Irish pat yourself on the back great job Brother.

Here's a little quote for ya's, From Tom Fugle.

I love to build and ride choppers, as it is an expression of my art. I guess that's because
I've always been artistic. I feel that those who ride stock bikes must be autistic. So what I'm trying to say is; "Ride choppers or FUCK OFF"

Not another gay conversation about makes of bike please. I have spent a very pleasant evening drinking beers with people with all sorts of bikes. I ride a Harley most of the time and people with new barleys refuse to wave back. Nothing to do with bikes. They're just boring people. Lots of cool old home built bikes there tonight but one of the nicest bikes was a young guy on a very tastefully done brand new Sportster with less than 1000 km on it. Good people are good people. All bikes are cool in some way. At least they are bikes. Had a great conversation with a guy on a Big Bear chopper. He loves his bike and is building another long bike. Arlington Doug is now officially a rock star in Auckland and Jody deserves his own tv show.
Irish out.

Kids.
I think when you jump to the quick 3-4 insult lines thats when cunts get fucking pissed.
Anyways i reckon we owe jon some cred for putting grinderfest on.
Its got some good vibes there.

As you said jon who invited the store bought chops hahahaha, na its cool.


Went to apply some stickers to my bike today while they were takin photos of the bikes wheeling them round, which is nice, hopefully we'll be getting some photos of them at the end. That'd be nice.
Was nice to see them drop someones bike and act like nothing happened though. Whoops Evil or Very Mad

So now i cant stop thinking about how easy my bike tips over haha
