The Born Free Show is on its 7th consecutive year and it was bigger and badder than ever! That being said we stepped our game up with 10 plus bikes and a bigger booth/footprint. We invited an Elvis impersonator to hang in the booth to help out with promo items, like our “Take One Or Make One Baby” (in Elvis’ voice) button machine offering as well as our “Shirt for a Shirt” giveaway we do every year. Elvis also serenaded the booth with his Top Hit hits so you know we were having a good time! We brought and displayed a few Sportsters, the Burly Brand Bagger, our Lowrider Softail, a couple Dyna’s and even had a couple FXR’s from our buddies at Straight Up. We also debuted our Stiletto Shocks for Dyna applications on our newest BB build coined the name “Snowman Dyna” taken from the Smokey and the Bandit movie. All in all the crowd seemed to love all the bikes and had a great time hanging with Elvis. We are already brain storming ideas to top this years event, stay tuned!

June 13th 2015 was the first Harley Night of the season. This year we had the opportunity to setup inside with our original Flat Track Sportsters and our newest bike the “Burly Flat Tracker Too”! The Tracker Too is a rubber mounted (late model) XL883 with a dual 19″ wheel setup made possibly by the crazy talented SK MACHINE. We threw a slew of our parts at it as expected, Scrambler bars with 2″ cut off on each side, Mini MX Pegs, Cafe Tail Section and Fork Lowering Kit, Pre-Load Adjusters and 13″ Stiletto Shocks! Minus the Lowbrow Chain Conversion the bike is a stocker!
Of course we (Thomas and I) had to rip our Sportster on the track. With this being Thomas’ second time on the track with his Sportster he did very well! We were neck and neck throughout the whole race. Go jail-stripes!!
All in all it was a very eventful evening. The Oxley Fam sure knows how to put on a show! For more info on Harley Night and Costa Mesa Speedway check the link here.

Down in Mexico, Coasters – Click Play for the full effect!
Biltwell’s semi-annual Mexican motorcycle adventure from Temecula, CA, to San Felipe and Ensenada, Baja Mexico. May 28-31, 2015. This year the El Diablo Run was blast. We rode, we drank we raced! Not as much as some but just enough to enjoy the time away with friends. A few hundred of us motorcycles geeks rode down to make the trek to San Felipe, MX. We spent a couple nights at the palapas in San Felipe along with the other 400-500 riders. There were awesome events planned from the Biltwell crew such as the Circle Of Death, Slow Races and other shenanigans we won’t mention. From San Felipe we rode to Ensenada for another two nights. With plenty of great taco spots and the lobsters in Puerto Nuevo there was no shortage of good grub!

Giddy Up Vintage Chopper Show is a custom motorcycle show with held in the Austin, Texas area. Nestled in the hills of New Braunfels, TX at a local Ice House the event definitely takes cues from the surrounding environment that doesn’t have you feelin’ like you are at a bike show. Lots of cool places to layout/chill and have a cold beer. Most of the locals camped out at the nearby campground and cruised back and forth throughout the day. Made the event not feel so crowded and also gave people a place to escape from the hot son if needed.
This year they raffled off a 1969 Harley Chopper and a panhead motor! It was the 2nd year of the event and our first to attend. Glad we made it out to see what the fuss was all about. We’ll be there next year for more shenanigans and good times.

We were out in Texas for the Giddy Up Show (more on the next post) and attended the pre-party at the Austin Speed Shop in Austin. It was our first time at the shop and was stoked to see the detail that went into the setup. The shop features as a custom car and fab facility with a gift shop. It’s a cool place to bring the family, as they can see vehicles being turned into works of art. There are plenty of huge plate windows to look through while you shop for goodies like shirts and hats etc.

The Hell On Wheels Stadium Steeplechase was last Saturday March 21st at the Glen Helen Raceway or Gelen Helen as they typo-ed in the flyer and screamed about the pits by our buddy Mark from Rusty Butcher. Gelen Helen, Gelen Helen dog… Where’s my Starbucks soy frappuccino?! Anyway they held the event on the Trophy Truck Track. Boasting sweeping turns, tabletops and wide open action. Or more like dust bowl and sandy washes whatever you want to call it. The event was still lots of fun as we always make the best out of it and like to give Hayden and Mr. Ball a hard time.
We even managed to drag out the “new guy” Paul. It was his first time on a dirt bike in over 15 years. Took a while to get the ol’ 2 stroker running but once we did we couldn’t get him off that thing. Good times for sure!
