Hippy Killer 2012


Year one, the Hippy Killer Hoedown was held in Kutty Noteboom's backyard. It was pretty apparent that it couldn't be contained there for year two, so the Wild West Arena in Winchester, California was the logical move. In 2011 it was hot as hell, but well attended. Generally, So Cal weather is pretty predictable, but this year proved a challenge with a solid downpour the night before the event. The DicE party went on Friday night anyway and the HK crew spread mulch about the event site to keep the mud from getting too bad. Lots of clouds threatened Saturday, but mostly only resulted in a couple light showers. Plenty of riders poured in anyway, eager for hot rods, vendors, cold beer and lots of choppers to look at. They were rewarded with mild temps and good times. We jammed over for a couple hours and shot several feature bikes, and as usual walked the parking area to document the machines riders came in on. Here's a few pics and there are more to come.

Sweet! Glad someone got some healthy bike pics!

That '76 Triumph for sale was a bargain. If you're okay with shifting the bike on the wrong side. Be a sweet runner as is.

Slim's bike is rad! I can't wait to see that thing in action!

Pretty cool show!

Any photogs on CC will notice immediately how fantastic this kind of day (overcast) is for bike pix.
Also btw, forgiving for portrait pix of people. Esp. people who'd otherwise
look highly gnarley ;-)

Cold ride down but well worth it. So much cool free shit. Congrats to all who scored the bars and tanks. Need both for my current project. Im fucking jealous! Missed that saddlebag by one step. Would have dropped my beer but that would have been alcohol abuse. Hell of a dive sir! Made up for it after the show by winning $300 at the indian casino(feather not dot) and paid for the whole weekend. Team Soboba, fuck yeah!

All the wonderful variety. smiles

/facepalm Man I should have made this, we didn't do dick on Saturday and it was literally around the corner from us, so close in fact we could have brought The Kid along with very little hassle, and still made it back home to sleep in a comfy bed. Next year for sure.

Had an awesome time. See you at Born Free.

My pops was stoked to see his 95 Sporty 1200 [1st pic, 2nd row] in the photo mix. Still a huge work in progress, but he's loving his Biltwell banana seat and was real proud of his fender/tail light mock-up. Next up is a set of Moto bars for it.. Also cool to see my Hondamatic in here. Good stuff.

whoa cool!! i thought i recognized your bike, WarGhost. looks very nice. bars look good too.

Commented on 4-17-2012 At 10:51 am

Thanks Rene, you did a solid job making those bars work with my stock handlebar clamps. Fits like a glove.

Commented on 4-17-2012 At 05:29 pm
