Here are some shots I got with my phone from the Hell on Wheels MC Vintage MX rally yesterday in Riverside, CA at Milestone MX Park. MotoGeo, Deus, Bixby Moto, ESMB, and BA Moto all had representatives there racing.

It was an amazing time, so many cool people, old bikes (and new), good music, BBQ, beer, the list goes on. Keep your eyes peeled for the bigger post on the event, as I’ll be dumping all the photos off my “real” camera here soon. 

Cherry on top- blasting down the freeway on the way back to Ventura, we spotted the mid-60s Ranchero that had been at the event.

Dirt Quake USA

In 2012 Sideburn Magazine dreamt up a crazy idea to bring a variety riders together for dirty competition- from professionals to novices, everyone (and all types of bikes) were welcome on the dirt track. The original Dirt Quake event took place in Coventry, Canada.

This year Sideburn and See See Motorcycles teamed up to bring Dirt Quake to the USA… specifically the Pacific Northwest about an hour outside of Portland. I can’t think of a better place to host it, either. A plethora of bikes and folks made it out- from serious racers to costumed jokesters, well prepped dirt bikes to overweight baggers… everyone had a blast on the dirt track. 

Can’t help but love a giant Teletubby riding a chopper with a suicide shifter around a dirt track. There was even a ladies only class (as well as an inappropriate street bike class)!

Dirt Quake USA took place in Castle Rock, WA this weekend- a small town about an hour away from Portland.
Photos are popping up all over instagram and this is already by far one of my favorites… Davin (aka MotoGuru) from Icon Motosports at the starting line on his Brammo with knobbies named ‘Sprinkles’. The tassles are the cherry on top for sure.

Troy Corser on a vintage BMW r90s from a post to his twitter account back in July during the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England. “They told me to be careful with this one.” As Ben Bostrom replied, “Classic Troy!”
What, he looks like he’s being very careful! Awesome.

Quite possibly the coolest motorcycle cop ever, and perhaps the luckiest guy on a CBR600RR ever… “Ain’t you cold?” he says to the Officer sporting a short sleeve shirt on his turbo Harley police bike. Then, “Wanna race?” to which the Officer replies, “I got a turbo in this one.”

Supposedly after all the kerfluffle this viral video caused, the poor guy had to resign. Doesn’t surprise me, sounds like they’re in the south. Us American’s love horsepower, but they sure as hell don’t like being made to look stupid by their government employees either.

This is going to be the best motorcycle event all summer. Why? Well, let me tell you.
Tug of war battle! Lady headliners Lark vs Jenocide and lads Big Steve vs “Hay Little Guy!” Jonah go head to head for the trophy! After that, it’s a f**king free-for-all, anyone can try!
Minibike racing tournament! You don’t have to be good, you just have to have fun! We’ve got the minibikes, you just have to have to get on and ride. 25 cent beers for those who participate in either racing or tug of war of the above events.
Stuff to put in your mouth! The pig roast and food stuffs will keep your belly full so you can properly hooligan-about. Get down on the full bar and don’t worry about leaving your bike on the street if you take a cab home- there’s a fence and secure parking.
Games! Play some pool, horseshoes, darts, or try your hand at our carnival games and competitions! Bring a strong throwing arm, that’s all I’ll say.
Get down with the raffle! We’ve got amazing prizes coming from Icon Motosports, Zombie Performance, Wolf Designs, and me! This list is still growing, and if you have something you’d like to donate you can contact me. 
Step right up! Come hang out and party SATURDAY, June 1st, 2013… at the Flying Fifteen Clubhouse (SE 72nd & Fir, PDX).
RSVP to the facebook event and keep up on raffle prizes!
