From Holland

The Rogues had their opening day ride, which like our swap meet, ended up being in the middle of a rain storm! Fucking hell, but what can you do?

Hey Beer, got Old Yellow on the road again?!

Wrenching on a bagger! That never gets old

Move Around Mag

For all the dedicated chopper riders in France, or for the bikers who want to learn French by reading a chopper mag, this might be your gig!
Niko sent us a couple copies of the first issue which included our good friend Jimmy from Bretagne. He then asked us to write about our last trip in Europe for issue #2. Also in the second issue is another good friend of ours, Steph. Another Chopper King from Brittany. 
If you have the chance, grab one of these magazines. A great, grass roots publication. And yes there is an English translation paper with it. 
Merci Niko!


Nice legs Jimmy!

SWAMP MEET 2015

Not that anyone wants to give the weather man credit, but in this instance, they were correct: rain between midnight and 7am saturday morning. Standing around the fire at 11pm friday night, stars were long gone by now, that first rain drop came down to say hello. By 12 it was here to stay.
The next morning the sound of people and vehicles first started around 630am. But the one sound that wasn't there, was the rain! Don't get your hopes up yet. That rain storm dumped over 1-1/4" of rain, and the field was turned into ponds in certain areas. This didn't deter the hardcore swap meeters, or any of the bikers who rode out to party for the weekend.
What looked like at first a total disaster, turned out to be one of the best party's we've ever had. Huge thanks to everyone who showed up. And also to Dave and all the guys who let us use the field for the event. We'll try this again next year! Without the rain though...

Saturday morning. Not looking too good at the moment!



Zac from GV had the best idea all day: $1 per cast, and you just had to hook it and get it past the bike! Fish on


First there was Rocco...

Then there was this.

The weather didn't damper peoples thirst, so what do you do with two empty kegs?

Keg races in the mud!

Oops


 Back up


Round two


And as usual, the sun goes down and the real party begins

Sunday morning, see you all next year!!!!

Weather Change

As we all know, no one knows shit about the weather. But... as a heads up, there is now another possibility of rain Saturday. Both Friday and Sunday look great, but we might get some rain during the swap meet. The swap meet will be happening rain or shine! 
If you have spaces, bring your ez-up. If you're camping, be prepared for a little rain and grab your tent. 
See you all Saturday!

Don't forget...

The swap meet has changed locations. It's now at D&D Rods and Rewire, which is located at:
20857 Mechanical dr. Sonora ca 95370
It's actually quite a bit easier to get to than the last couple. Coming from any direction, find 108. If you're coming from the valley, or hwy 49, or J59, just head east once you get to it. Pass by Sonora, and at Soulbyville rd. stop light (couple miles), go left. You will pass the chevron, if you don't need gas, and then take a right at the 4 way stop. 1/16th of a mile, it will be on your right. 
Look for signs, or cops taking our signs down. See you all in a couple days!

Swap Meet Weather

Weather for the weekend looks pretty good so far. We'll have our BBQ pit out there Friday for anyone who shows up early. Bring something to cook and drink. We'll have some stuff, just not a lot. There is a Mexican taqueria within walking distance, as well as a fully stocked gas station with beer and booze, also within walking distance. We told the gas station to expect some people, including ourselves, for a quick to go breakfast for Saturday. They make their own breakfast burritos, sandwiches and whatnot.

Bottomless Mugs Are Here!!!

This is the same deal as the last couple of years: $25 gets you the mug, and endless drinks from the beer booth, for free. Don't drop it! Get here early, as there is a limited number of these engraved mugs. Once they're gone, they're gone til next year!

One of those days...

Sunny, warm, and really feeling like spring. Running errands that would normally take 15 mins, but stretched it out to an hour.
