Rogues MC 35th Anniversary Party

One of the main reasons for coming back to Europe this year, was so we could go to the Rogues 35th anniversary, in Opmeer. With the convincing of Wolf and Baby Clint, we decided to make a full trip out of it, and as you know, ship the bikes to Europe almost three months before the Rogues party. 
The party for us, has been almost like the grand finale of our trip. Along with being a great party, it was also the place that we were going to be able to meet up with almost everyone from the road one last time. 
But also in the back of our minds, this party represented the end of our trip. And I don't think we could have asked for a better way to finish this adventure, than this party.

Unicycle rain delay

After the rain, the grass was too wet for the unicycle races. Not wanting to disappoint the crowd, Gerry from the Rogues and Morgan from the Animals did what any respectable biker would do, and took matters into their own hands. Mud drags, doughnuts, ending in a burnout competition. Morgan also showed us his stunt driving/crashing abilities. 

Beer made a couple of awesome awards for the party, and we were lucky enough to receive the one for the longest ride to the party. Officially I think we are just over 10,000 km. With that being said, we never meant to go that far, we just got lost and it took us 10,000 km to find our way back! Thanks Beer

My bike also got the award for most empty beer cups. 

Atle from Chopper Freaks. And yes he's in there. And yes he's sleeping.

Sunday evening was reserved for some relaxation, delivered Chinese food, and a chance for everyone who was still around to help fill in each other's "blank spots" of the weekend. 

A huge thanks to all the Rogues for putting on this great party. As you all know, this won't be the last time you will see us! Thanks again, see you in California!
