Bartels’ Ride to the Dunes for Child Abuse Awareness

On Sunday, Bartels’ Harley-Davidson sponsored a Ride to the Dunes to help bring about a greater awareness of the epidemic state of child abuse. The ride began at Bartels’ in Marina del Rey and took the coast up to Sycamore Cove State Beach. I had too much to do Sunday to take the day off, but I did head over to Bartels’ before everyone took off. They had music provided by Jukebox Zero and a couple sponsors there providing donuts and selling raffle tickets.

With Grand Marshal, Lorenzo Lamas leading the escorted group, I’d guess they had about 150 bikes headed out to Malibu where they were greeted with more music and a lunch. You can find more information about the event and the sponsors at http://www.ridetothedunes.org/. Continue reading

Third Annual Rod & Kustom BBQ Photos

On Saturday, the CrossMembers Hot Rod Fellowship held their Third Annual Rod & Kustom BBQ at the Restoration Life Christian Church in Lawndale. This was a fundraising event with a car and bike show, [outstanding] live music, and a barbecue. In addition there were a few vendors there and they held a raffle with 100% of the proceeds going to Hands of Hope: Mission Ethiopia. Hands of Hope: Mission Ethiopia provides water purification and well digging services as well as humanitarian relief to the Afar people of Ethiopia. They are attempting to raise $40,000 to purchase a new hydraulic well digging rig which will reach a depth of 300 feet to access clean water far beneath the surface. For more information email hotrodfellowship@hotmail.com or call (310) 973-5059.

I had been informed about the event because of my association with the Original Sinner Motorcycle Club’s Meetup group, the Original Sinners Riding Club. If you ride and are looking for some people to ride with, you should check them out. Bikes of every style are welcomed; this is not part of the motorcycle club, so if you do not want to wear a patch, that is not an issue. After checking out the car and bike show we headed up to Point Fermin and met up with the Sinners at Walker’s Cafe, a popular location overlooking the Palos Verdes Peninsula coastline. I used the opportunity to take two bikes out on the same day; it was a good day. Continue reading

Bartels’ Harley-Davidson 10th Annual Chili Cook-Off

These photos are from the Bartels’ 10th Chili Cook-Off, which was held Sunday, April 21 at Bartels’ Harley-Davidson in Marina del Rey, California. Now, to be honest, I am not completely sure if they have been doing this every year for 10 years, or if this was just their 10th one. I suspect it is pretty close to being an annual event. I know that by the time we got there, Lincoln Boulevard was lined with motorcycles on both sides of the street.

I had gone to the Rose Bowl earlier that morning, and by the time we got out to Bartels’ most of the chili was pretty much devoured. I did get an opportunity to try some of the Black Sheep Chili which is advertised to have certain health benefits as well as having multiple uses in the garage. It was pretty good.

Like I said, I got there late and it appeared that some people may have been cleaning up already, but I’d guess there were about 10 contestants. There was live music provided by Jukebox Zero to keep us entertained as we walked around and checked out the booths from various clubs and chatted with friends, old and new. It was a great day as far as the weather was concerned and they had a few hundred bikers come through at various times of the day. All in all it was a lot of fun and another successful event at Bartels’ Harley-Davidson. Continue reading
