Well, I missed the Easyriders V-Twin Expo yet again… I have been hoping to attend this event for a long time now and there just seems like something always gets in my way. This year’s event was as fantastic as ever, especially if you take into consideration the economy as well as half the country experiencing travel-debilitating weather.
Friends in attendance say that they had a great time, and enjoyed all the vendors. All the usual suspects were there and the magazine staffs from all your favorite publications were on hand to promote themselves and to cover the event. The Limpnickie Lot Crew showed up with the much-anticipated second version of the Builder’s Manual, which has a ton of badass parts for the hip builder. I look forward to getting my mitts on a copy. And a ton of other amazing parts were at various booths around the center. There was a little bit of everything to cover just about any need in the motorcycle industry.
All in all, a successful run this year. I also hear that the Biltwell party in itself was worth the trip. So put it on the calendar for next year. Maybe I can finally get all the stars to align and get myself there. Hope to see you.
