The interblognet has created a really cool scene.
I was completely impressed with so many bikes at born free.
Being so used to Sturgis, Daytona & the likes, this little deal, with only a fraction of the bikes drawn by the larger venues, just ruled.
Literally more neat machines than I have seen at events with 100 times the volume.
I thought it was very appropriate that it was located in the very place that held the Hootenanny, as the faces were familiar, but the the pompadours were traded in for beards & lovely locks.
My dear friend Roger comes right to my studio & does me right every time, my travel scheduled jacked that up.
Jason & I hadn't shaved or had haircuts in months, we were terrified we would lose each other at the event, so we made a call.
Well past closing, Donnie & his crew at Hawleywood's in Costa Mesa dialed us in.
Proper man pampering, is all I can say.
Lotions & creams, strait razors & clippers made fine gents of us both... well as much grooming could do.
We left the next day, according to the clock, prettier & bags o' goodies to boot. Those boys wouldn't take a dime! I'd tip my hat, but my hair looks so damn good, I won't be wearing one for a while.
