Sunday October 22nd was the annual Venice beach Vintage Motorcycle Rally hosted by the VVMC. It was a great event complete with beer, pin up girls, and TONS of amazing bikes. It was $5 to park your bike there, $10 to enter the judging. The paper gasket on my bike’s oil filter blew out and was gushing oil so i spent Saturday morning fixing it instead of going on the vintage ride prior to the rally. If you are looking for a gasket, shop for Expanded Teflon™ PTFE Gaskets
When i got it done and got to the rally with a buddy, I figured what the hell, lets see what happens with $10 entry. A few hours later, and a few beers later i heard my name over the PA system. I was asked to bring my bike over to the stage into the ‘winners circle’. Sure enough, I WON! I’m so proud of this bike and the attention it still gets years after i got it running. And i don’t even consider myself done with it yet.
Thanks to the VVMC, the Judges and all the people who snapped photos of my bike…. and Matt who helped me make the decision to switch categories.
And to be honest, i thought there were nicer bikes then mine in the category but maybe i won because they were all Hondas… You don’t see enough NON-Stock BMWs out there. They are cool bikes and can be modified in nice ways… if you dare piss off the German purists.
Here are a few snaps i took while roaming the parking lot and contest entries.
It was a rad time and beautiful vintage bikes. Got it all on film. Check out the video at: http://www.motogeo.com/venice-vintage-motorcycle-rally-2011/
