Default Born Free - Are Ya Going?

For any motorcyclists that have been living off the grid or under a rock, Born Free is the coolest bike show since the Swingin' Seventies! This is a classic event fulla bad-azz chops and old-timey road machines. Not a new bike or OCC POS to be seen! Real bikes built by real people really ridden from across the country, Canada, Mexico, South America and points beyond. Bikes built in sheds and barns, garages and kitchens, gathered together to worship at the altar of eternal combustion. All hail the motorsickle!

A couple pics to remind what yer gonna see. (Or miss, if yer a lame-o that sits at home this Saturday!)

Google maps from my place: 3,860 km, 2398 miles, 38 hours.

So 38 hours on the road plus perhaps a napp or two at the side of the road on the way, and about 24 brief food, fuel and pee stops. So if i leave tomorrow morning at 6:00 AM ...
