Born Free weekend

i went down to LA with the XS and the harley for born free 4. it was an epic weekend to say the least

 wildfires in utah :( lots of people losing their homes. we were under a cloud of smoke for an hour of driving

 the day before the show, we went to the beach! so much fun and refreshing

the show was huge!
 nice paint

 water-cooled knucklehead
 Max Schaaf had the craziest gastank i've seen, very nice bike. i really liked the stance.
after the show i saw Max and gave him some praise, he was having trouble kicking his pan, he asked me to kick it over for him! but he got it going that last kick before i could give it a shot...
all the pro builders were very nice. Caleb Owens won the biker series. lot of good bike builders getting recognition with awards.
 one of the few XS that was there surprisingly... lots of nice work on this
 great engraving

  the show was winding down so i brought my bike over to the Pangeaspeed booth where i was hanging out all afternoon, i needed to load up my gear. we wanted to swim in the nearby lake after the show, but they said "no swimming"

 the harley broke down on the way to Chabott Engineering. i think its the voltage regulator (18v is too high!)
 we made it to Shinya's shop

 Shinya is very talanted! very inspirational bikes

then we went for a good canyon ride! the california canyons are very long. shinya rode the CB450, Ayu rode her SR500, and Cal borrowed Shinya's ironhead. very fun!

more wildfires back in utah...

i met a lot of cool people, i look forward to seeing everyone next year
thanks for looking!
