David Mann Chopperfest 2011

These photos were taken Sunday, December 11, 2011 at the 8th Annual David Mann Chopperfest, held at the Ventura County Fairgrounds in Ventura, CA. Chopperfest is dedicated to the life and memory of David Mann, arguably the most influential designer in the custom motorcycle world. Besides a bike show that includes some of the most beautiful motorcycles around, there was a motorcycle swap meet, vendors with food, beer, accessories and clothing, music provided by the Bob Carrillo Band and a roller derby exhibition by the Sugartown Rollergirls. Contrary to what you might think, this was fun for the entire family. Continue reading

My Little Biker Babe

Since I purchased the new Limited, Tanya has begun riding more with me and takes longer rides. Unfortunately, sometimes the rides can be a little tough on her due to her RA. I was planning on taking her to Chopperfest on Sunday, but by Friday she was hurting to the point that she decided she would stay home. By Saturday evening she decided that if I gave her a proper massage, she would be able to make it.

My photo of the day for day 346 is of Tanya and I at Chopperfest. As you can tell by the smile, her pain level was way down. That makes my happiness level go way up.

Ventura, CA – December 12

There are probably not many people that have influenced the motorcycle building community as much as David Mann. Even if you do not build motorcycles, his artwork definitely portrayed common experiences of Harley riders back in the day. The man was a living legend. Shortly after his death in 2004, the David Mann Chopperfest was conceived. Yesterday was the 7th Annual David Mann Chopperfest.

The festival, held in Ventura, CA, is a combination bike show and motorcycle swap meet, with music, food, drink, vendors, art displays and lots of motorcycles. This was my second time attending. The weather was beautiful and I can not think of a much better way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Many thanks to for the free passes. It was appreciated.
