A few Harleys crashed the cafe racer party at the Rockers Spring Social including this knucklehead.
I was really excited to see Andy's freshly hardtailed Sportster.
He even let me take it for a spin and while I was off riding it, Rachel snapped these two photos with my camera and didn't tell me as a surprise for when I downloaded them. The bike is really fast and really fun to ride but no front brake, no gauges, and no mirrors takes a little getting used to. The hardtail rode a lot nicer than expected but it's not like I put any real miles on it. These two are adorable (photo credit Rachel Mac):
While looking around, I was collecting inspiration for my XL883R to get it ready for the Moto Mania dirt track event on August 1st. Before I decided to keep the flame tins that came with it, I was planning to go with an XR750-ish tail section like this. I may still go that route one day.
Alright, time for awards.
I didn't keep track of who won what and for what reason, but I know Billy was the MC and Donna handed out the trophies.
I do know that this guy won best in show. What I don't know is which he liked better, the trophy...
...or the kiss.
The Rockers Spring Social was a really good time. If you missed out, better luck next year.
