The Sacramento stop for the Easyriders Bike Tour was the place to be this weekend
Record crowds on Saturday and people still pouring in on Sunday made for a crazy busy event. For two blocks in every direction the curbs were lined with thousands of bikes that brought most of the attendees to this packed event. Even if people didn’t pay the price of admission to get into the Sacramento show, the curbside show was pretty interesting, too.
Many of the nations top builders were inside with their spectacular custom bikes for the Judged Class. AFT Customs had “Er Hed” on display and word is Jim has a new build in the works. With as groundbreaking as Er Hed is, everyone is on the edge of their seats to see what he will roll out next. Even the Spectator Class had a seriously diverse collection of bikes to be looked over and voted on by the crowd. No one envied the judges their job of selecting the best of the best as there were row after row of totally mind-boggling, jaw-dropping examples of what can be done to a bike from bolt-on to entirely handmade.
The cross-section of vendors couldn’t be faulted, either. Custom bike builders and dealers were side-by-side with specialty leathers and accessories displays. Stoney Straps did a brisk business with bikers needing to keep their pants down while the concessions kept their bellies filled. Mmmmm, kettle corn and a Bud Light, how could anyone go wrong?
Jason Pullen put on a show of his balls-to-the-wall (in one case literally) motorcycle stunts. How does he do it?! Most people just want to keep their seat in the saddle, Jason spends most of his time standing in it, on it, around it, over it, you name it, he’s all over the place - but with style and grace.
Also putting on a show, but of a more curvaceous sort, were the Purrfect Angelz with several dance sets and meet-and-greet times. Jasmine Cain’s hot tunes and rockin’ sets were reminiscent of Heart and a perfect complement to the lively crowd. And the Builder Profile interviews on the stage let everyone hear directly from the best what their inspirations are and where they hope to go with their creations.
