Progressive Dallas International Motorcycle Show

Post #1 by HOTT » Thu Feb 08, 2018 1:36 am

First off Thanks all for indulging our (Lucky & I) exploits over the past few months. :orange
This past weekend we participated at the Dallas IMS. Loading in we saw so many awesome machines I
started to question my bravery. I soon felt a little better when Lucky was greeted and approved as a running machine
and assigned to a place on the red carpet. So here are some shots of the type of things imaginative builders come up with..

these two were freestyle (obviously) and just fun to see the ingenuity

So why wouldn't you put knobbies on your hyper cafe racer?

Of course you have to have Baggers..

So the show thing was SUPER fun, but it's time for me to get on the road with that bicycle biz.

As usual, a great collection of Harleys. It's a brave soul that steps into that arena. But it is getting easier. You belong in that company, and are doing well, especially in an uphill battle. And against people who have spent a LOT more money. Very satisfying in that company
