This is really cool - I'm hearing from more people everyday and I think we're just getting started...

Anchor Motorsickles will be coming out from Kansas City and they've graciously offered up their shop for anyone going through town until May 20th. Thanks for supporting the ride Anchor!

We'll have more details soon about the meet-up location, dates & times and some maps as well.

Three months to go...

Huge Thanks to Speedmetal!!!

When I got the idea to organize a ride out to Born Free the first people I talked to were Dave & Lucas over at Speedmetal. If you've never heard of these guys before you will soon - they sponsor the killer 'Love Thy Chopper' show in Denver each year (getting bigger & bigger), they build some of the region's most mind-blowing custom chops (ask them about owning the Grand National show) and they're just all-around great dudes.

As a top-level sponsor of this year's Born Free show they were happy to jump in and help promote the journey out west. Lucas has offered to carry a mobile shop with him in the show bike trailer for anyone who breaks down along the way and I'll be working with Speedmetal on documenting and broadcasting our journey to the world. Come be a part of chopper history - drop a line in the comments below and let us know where you're starting from!

Going to Born Free???

Why not join the boys from SpeedMetal Cycles  and some of Denver's finest scumbags for a first class trip.

Here's the intial idea:
  • everyone going to the show from east of Denver can meet up in Colorado the night of Tuesday June 21st
    • we'll use this site to get you guys connected
  • we'll roll out from Denver on Wednesday June 22nd
  • spend the night somewhere on the road June 22nd
  • crash Vegas on the 23rd
  • arrive at Oak Canyon Ranch on the 24th

Let's just kick this off informally - if you're interested leave a comment with your location and any thoughts about the plan so far.
