What’s it all about today? Las Vegas Bike fest is coming right up. It rained slightly for the first time in Los Angeles. I’m sort of excited in a tempered way. Next week I may purchase an old pickup and on the weekend Rick Krost, of US Choppers and I are headed to see Ron Paugh at Paughco.

I introduced Rick to Ron a while back, and Ron builds Rick’s frames and Rick is selling some of Ron’s older bikes. Plus, we will pick up the 5-Ball Racing Salt Torpedo and haul ass back to Los Angeles, where the fun will begin.

Harley Davidson and the City of Milwaukee hosted the 115th celebration that would have made William Harley and the three Davidson brothers: Arthur, William and Walter proud.

Instead of being hosted at the Summerfest Park as in previous events, there were multiple locations in and around Milwaukee that gave participants more variety and events centered on motorcycles and less on big name concert productions. More local acts performed on various stages scattered throughout events around the city, and only one big name country concert on September 1st featuring Lady Antebellum and Darius Rucker was held at the American Family Insurance Amphitheater, with Russel Dickerson as the opening act.
