Born Free Chopper Show

I planned on taking a step back this year. I had only two events planned and they fell within a week apart of each other. One was to ride to Cali for the BORN FREE SHOW and the other was a good friends wedding. He asked me if I would shoot it so I made plans that would have me at both places at the start of each event.

Recently I talked to my friend to get everything squared away and he said he had to push the wedding forward a week. Figures...... the two things I really wanted to do this year and the fall on the same date. Naturally I decided to shoot the wedding over the Born Free Show.


............ But before you freak out and call me a pussy and talk shit about how I'm suddenly to cool to hang with my chopper friends anymore...... I will tell that this is a friend that was there before motorcycles were relevant to me.......oh yeah... and the wedding is in Italy. The BORN FREE SHOW is one of the raddest shows you will ever get the chance to attend and I know that from a first hand experience but I've never been to Italy and probably will never see it if I don't hop on this chance. Italy here I come!

If you haven't been to the Born Free Show you would be pretty dumb to not go this year. Last years show was the first and displayed the finest collection of the choppers I have ever seen in one parking lot. It was put together in about four weeks.... I can't even imagine what The Born Free Show we bring this year. I will be sad to miss it but hopefully California will still be around for at least a few more years. I'll catch the next.


Here are some snaps from last years BORN FREE SHOW

Bummer Josh,

If you make it out to Italy a few weeks early you can however make up for the loss and attend Jesolo bike weekend or come over to party in Bottrop

At least you know your priorities, which is a good thing. We are riding to Born Free as well, but you gotta put your friends first always. Hopefully see you at the Big Mountain Run?

A man need not justify his lack of attendance at a motorcycle show because he will be at his friend's wedding.

Your priorities are in the right place sir. And I very much enjoy your images and blog. Thanks.
