Big thanks to Matt Grayson at Rolling Heavy Magazine for supporting the Chopper Fest year after year! We appreciate you, buddy! "The 16th Annual David Mann Chopper Fest is going down Dec 8th at The Ventura Fairgrounds in Ventura, CA. We're gonna have a bunch of vans at the Rolling Heavy Magazine booth, and we saved a couple of spots for you guys. Do you want to get your Van into David Mann on us? DM us a pic of your van and tell us a little about it, and we'll be picking winners before the show. As always, thanks Chopper Festival, ChopCult, and of course, you guys for Keepin On."

"The season of giving is here and the Greasy Dozen Builder Collective is all about giving back to the motorcycle community, we want to make sure every garage builder has a shot at entering. With that being said, we are extending the submission deadline to Wednesday 11/27 at midnight which means this year's builders will be announced on Thanksgiving Day! We can't think of a cooler way for the 12 lucky builders to find out they made the selection surrounded by their friends and family on Thanksgiving day! If you or someone you know is on the fence about entering their build, here's your final push, SUMBIT!"- The Greasy Dozen and Old Bike Barn team
HOW TO ENTER: There are 3 categories: Chopper, Cafe Racer, Tracker
-52 Casting Number (NOT -52A) It won't work on a Sportster with one-piece shaft/generator idler gear. This is for the K Model engine only (maybe a 1957 XL still had an idler shaft (like a 45 or a big twin)?
"Your job in this democratic process is to select the 13 builders/bikes that will advance to the next level. Please read through each candidate's latest update here, visit their instagram accounts and decide who you think it worthy.
Scroll all the way to the bottom of this page, pick your favorite 13 and hit the Submit button. Yes, you have to pick 13, so you can't just vote for your best friend and then bounce. We can tell if you try to game the system and cast multiple votes, so don't try, the votes will only get deleted.
We want to welcome the Led Zeppelin tribute band ZEPP HEADS to the 16th Annual David Mann Chopper Fest. They deliver a hard-rocking concert experience with classics like "Black Dog," "Lemon Song," and "Kashmir." No costumes, just sharing their love for Led Zeppelin music. Website / Facebook / YouTube
Last month I went to the Yucatan and stayed in Valladolid for a few days, then hiked Ek Balam and went to few cenotes. I like to stay near Punta Sur (on the south end)of Isla Mujeres too. This gal at Playa Norte was doing maintenance on her scooter in the street. Fixing corroded connections, making sure the lights worked, etc. She bought it new, it was stolen a few times, lost for almost 6 months on one occasion, but she always got it back. Nice gal. Everyone I meet in Quintana Roo and Yucatan are nice. Someday I'll take my WLA down there and get lost for a few years. I love it there.
