Tenth Kelsey Run


DSC00884.jpg

The annual Kelsey Run is a fundraiser event that takes place in Bridgewater, NJ. The actual run itself is short but interesting as the local police clear a path for thousands of bikers to rumble through their towns. These images before and after the ride (it's hard to work a camera and ride at the same time!) are from June 19, 2005.

Orange County Choppers - July 2008


occ01.jpg

July ride to Orange County Choppers We took a ride to Orange County Choppers in July 2008. The circumstances that led us there were... trying... but we got there. The strap of my lid got a bit of a stretch as my jaw dropped when we wheeled into the parking lot of this huge glass-and-steel edifice - it was NOT what I expected. The bike shots could be better. So much glass and a blazing July sun were just too much for my little point-and-shoot.

Freedom Run to Ground Zero 2009


P5310159.jpg

This used to be an annual run benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project. This set is from May 31, 2009 - our first time participating. This event drew an unprecendented crowd - 5,000 - 6,000 bikes - which seriously strained the support that authorities were able to provide. The run was subsequently discontinued for safety reasons.

T-Rex0 viewsNOT an OCC bike, this is a T-Rex trike spotted in the parking lot. Two wheels in the front and one in the rear, these things handle like there's no tomorrow, and can pull about 2 Gs when cornering.

Paul Sr.'s Bike0 viewsA little more detail. There was crud in all the right places that makes me think this is a daily rider. Check out the chrome head shot on the oil bag.

Blocked Tube2 viewsAt least they kept one tube blocked out for us! Now, one bike in a tunnel is loud. A bunch of friends with you on their bikes is awesome. But a tunnel stuffed FULL of bikes end-to-end is mind-blowing! But remember, without the benefit of cleansing rains the pavement is always a bit slippery and too much throttle aggression can be a serious error. I didn't hear of any incidents.Feb 23, 2017

Waiting1 viewsWell, I guess you can't avoid *all* the City traffic. Our escorts were all but finished, so normal City traffic had a ton of bikes to deal with.Feb 23, 2017

Ground Zero2 viewsIt was an emotional moment passing Ground Zero. I was bummed about the screened fence but glad at the same time - gawkers could make for dangerous driving -or- riding here. We passed without incident.Feb 23, 2017
