Los Angeles/Las Vegas

We just got back from a trip to Los Angeles/Las Vegas this past weekend. We went up for the trade show and to cruise for just a bit. My first day there, we hit up S&M and talked story with Dylan and McKinney for a bit. We ended up looking through some of the private collection which they just recently started acquiring.

They also have Beringers original prototype . . .

And the very first LTF . . .

I also got a chance to see the first run of T-1’s Garret Byrnes frames which are being made in the Building.

Here’s McKinney and I partaking in some frosty beverages upstairs before heading out to Mother’s Tavern in Sunset Beach. A word of warning, if you have a peanut allergy, be careful. This is the real deal with peanut shells all over the floor. I will say, however, that this place has THE absolute coldest beer on tap I have ever had in my life! A great atmosphere and live music most nights.

Dennis flew in on Sunday night and we went straight from the airport to my friends house in Long Beach for an impromptu BBQ. You’d be surprised at how many heads currently call Long Beach home. During the course of the night a gang of cool cats showed up including Chicago transplant Kevin Porter and Chad Johnston.

Off to Vegas Monday night for the trade show. On the way into town, the lightning was outrageous. For those of you who know us, we normally rent a boat and cruise Lake Mead on Tuesday but with the weather like it was . . . that wasn’t going to happen. There’s no way I’m sitting on an aluminum pontoon boat in the middle of a lake with all that going on. Luckily, Dennis and I are ok with changing plans and there’s no shortage of outlets for us to do so. We ended up at a bar in Harrah’s with some big uns.

This ended up hooking up with the Primo guys and off to the dollar bar at Casino Royale. Due to national decency standards, I can’t go into that though.

Next night, Dennis wanted to rest. Bigs had driven up earlier that day so he and I cruised around and walked about 20 miles . . . give or take. We must’ve checked out 6 different places before we settled on Double Down Saloon. Birthplace of the Bacon Martini and home of Ass Juice . . . you read that right.
Photobucket
Thursday night brought us to the Nora Cup awards. I’m sure by now, everyone has heard who won what so I won’t bore you with details. Needless to say, Reez at Kink/Blackout was very happy. And we got to see Logan for a bit.
Photobucket
We ended up at the Hard Rock like everyone else and our boy Dave from Sparky’s was making the moves on one of the dancers there.
Photobucket
All in all, it was a great trip. Yes, we did get some business done which is the whole reason we were there in the first place. But we did have fun. I’ll see if I can get Dennis to post up some more shots later.


(If the pictures don't show up, I'll fix it tomorrow morning.)
If not, go here . . .

Teams of 3-5 riders have 36hrs to film, edit and deliver their 5-10 minute videos at Hooters. Then we play them and hand out prizes. Special thanks to Hooters, Deco BMX, S&M Bikes, and Animal Bikes for all their support.

Scraper Bikes

Some things just make me laugh so hard!

Thursday, February 3, 2011





Y'all ready for 'dis? We will be running Streets Of Madness just like last year. Everybody shows up at 8:00am on February 26th at Kaka'ako Waterfront Park. Teams are limited to between 3 and 5 riders, period. Keep your guest appearances to a minimum. Videos are between 5 and 10 minutes . . . again, period. Everyone will meet up at Hooter's in the Aloha Tower Market Place on Sunday, February 27th at 8:00pm. Please be on time. I'd prefer to not keep the Hooters Girls there any later than we absolutely have to. I have a stopwatch and I'll be stopping the videos at 10 minutes so the pretty ladies can go home. If you have any questions, please contact us through duane@shootsbrah.com.

I'd like to extend a huge thank you to the guys at Animal Bikes, DECO BMX and S&M Bikes for helping out with the contest this year. I wouldn't be able to do it without you guys.

Shoots,
SoCal
