At this point, the sun has set in Des Moines but the DicE / Church of Choppers / Kung Fu Tap and Taco party continues on...
Yet another crowd shot:
OK, I admit that I'm mildly obsessed with Tom Fugle's panhead. It looks just as good at night as it did during the day.
Live music started up inside the bar.
Another shot of the bar:
A beautiful Harley with sidecar. The guy I was talking to said only 12 came from the factory that way in that year (1946 maybe?) and this was one of the 12.
Eventually, I had to call it a night and retire to my tent. It got cold that night and I had a difficult time staying warm. Other than that, I was able to sleep OK. A few dudes slept outside - hardcore.
Come back for pics from the next morning and the ride home...
