Sunday Mass

 Sunday BBQ at what is evidently a Botique Motorcycle shop. I don't say "Botique Chopper" as they're not making choppers by definition, although they are chopping bikes. Think, taking the "garage" out of "Garage Built Bikes" is about the only way I can define it from a non-hipster point of view. They however define it like so; The Deus philosophy recalls an era before the various pursuits of fun – motorcycling, surfing, skateboarding, whatever – were marketed into fundamentalist factions.



 VVMC in the house.
 Anarchy at Dues.
Pics by Lucifer. Words by Lady Hump, and I don't know how many more photos I can take of this place but it's evidently (that word again) the newest thing (dare I say "fad") in the motorcycle (sans using the word "chopper") world. If ever there was a need for Quantum Leap Program, this is one of those times ...
Hell. If I'm wrong, you decide. I'll post the pictures, you're a big boy, make your own decisions.

I get the feeling you're not a big fan of this Deus thing. From the looks of it, I don't blame ya, but I don't think I've fully encountered the crowd that seems prevalent at this place. I might steal all their little dogs when I do.

The bikes are somewhat awesome. They would be more awesome if i believed they were built for reasons less apparent. I need to add words to my vocabulary to properly describe how this "type" of "biker" plays out. A motorcycle is not a "lifestyle accessory." I don't know these people (or persons like this) personally, so that limits the evaluation. I do however know how to read a book, and I do judge books by the cover. That's why they put titles of books on covers ... the more the merrier I say, if you wanna wear caprice and lil' dock shoes at a motorcycle BBQ, let's party boyz!

I'm wit choo Big Girl, even though the guy behind it all, Dare Jennings, is a good bloke with a history in indy rock and roll and they do nice work, if that's what you're into, and he's an Aussie, I'm skeptical and always have been of the motive and the apparent 'target demographic'. Call me cynical but it's all just a bit contrived and subject to the laws and dictates of the 'beautiful people' . . . I'll party with the folk wearing the cutting edge cool shit and ridin the nouveau mondo cafe creamer, but I party with just about anybody, I ain't that choosy when it comes to gettin on it . . . but I'm a tad finnicky about motive and turning a passion into a global product. FYI - Dare was the bloke who started up 'Mambo' back in the mid eighties, gettin the idea now . . . very 'hip', very 'cuttin edge' . . . very borrowed. Where was he when I got my first Bonnie back in '89 ?? Bikes weren't part of surfing culture then, I can assure of that.

I... I would and WILL go again to the store And the events/rides. Don't have any money to spend, BUT... DO have eyes to look at motos I think look good AND... the BEST part is the woman to man ratio at these kind of events. It's rediculos! AND... Hot/Sexy girl's too! Not tore up looking ones. Though I might also look at them too. LOL!!! So yeah, Hot/Sexy girls AND cool motos, count me in. Just pay more attention to the motos and girls and TRY not to look down at the shoes or cuffs on the males and you'll be good. TRY, try very hard.

I pick up what you guys are putting down. A year ago, I wouldn't have, but now I'm a different man haha. I only rode for about a year solo before I started hanging out and riding with 1% clubs. That has obviously influenced my opinion alot. I wouldn't say I'm open to all this mainstream bullshit that's going on nowadays, but I do let it slide now, to a certain degree. To me, being neat and tidy on a bike isn't fun. But, I am more than happy to show up at these shows, drink their booze, ask their women if my bandana smells like chloroform and ride off into the sunset, taking their cats and little dogs with me.
