In spite of this being a show that features the latest models from the top manufacturers, my favorite bikes were a 1966 Triumph Bonneville customized by O.C.C. (yes, that OCC and I'm actually serious), a 1958 panhead, and a 1935 Indian Chief. More on those later.
One of the first things I checked out in the morning was the stunt show put on by the XDL Championship Series. I'm not a big sportbike guy, but stunting is cool and these guys were good. Allegedly, they covered the surface in root beer and let it dry overnight to get some traction. I believe the riders were Kyle Sliger (green) and Aaron Twite (red) but feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. I think Aaron Colton was there too but I don't think he's one of the guys in the pics I took.
There was only one minor wipeout but the rider and bike were fine.
I'll be posting a ton of pictures from the show all week long so come on back.
