Willie’s Tropical Tattoo Choppertime Bike Show 2021 by Valgal

Willie’s Tropical Tattoo Choppertime Bike Show 2021 was AGAIN the BEST BIKE SHOW EVER!  PACKED for the 80th year of bike week, this show remains the BEST event of the year, EVERY year…

It was very crowded walking around the show so I took a walk around the outside of the show… WOW! The bikes parking up in the back were awesome!… The pictures will tell my story as always…

I love seeing my friends at these events… They get to see what I do… Jasper from Twisted Minds Inc. out of Brevard Co. Florida showed up at the show and met James from SlipKnot!  Keep your eyes (and ears) open for Twisted Minds Inc. (TMI)! Come see them, it is worth the trip! Face Melting Rock & Roll baby!!!  I also saw Billy Lane too, but he slipped away without a picture…LOL 

I hope you all enjoy my POV of Willie’s… I love y’all and will see you soon! 

ENJOY!

Willie’s Tropical Tattoo Chopper Show…Biketoberfest…2020 by Miserable George and Valgal

     Willie’s Tattoo did it again…another bang-up chopper show on October 15, 2020, and Man…it was hot…the show, AND the weather!! I wish Willie’s were on the opposite side of U.S.#1, so we wouldn’t get that brutal afternoon sun…! BUT, we survived…! The live band…Jacksonville Slim and Express Train were wailing all day in the back yard, and they attracted quite an audience!! There was food and drink back there, along with some large SHADE TREES!!! Lots of places to sit and relax, and maybe enjoy a slight breeze now and then. Plenty of vendors in that area too. Considering it was Biketoberfest, plus the on-going virus threat, the crowd was down a bit, making it easier to walk around and check out the custom machines. A bunch of beauties were judged and prizes awarded. I believe Willie has the winners’ names. Speaking of “beauties”…YES, plenty of beautiful ladies prancing around the grounds as well. Thanks Willie for yet another fabulous show at 825 S. Yonge St. in Ormond Beach…I NEVER miss this one…! Thanks too, to my daughter, ValGal, for all her help!! Thanks to the FWC Officer who administered first aid to my injured wrist…

WILLIE’S TROPICAL TATTOO CHOPPER SHOW by Miserable George

For me, I’d say that this is my favorite segment of Daytona’s Bike Week. It’s many parts of some Bike Week requirements all rolled into one…FREE parking…(4 wheelers too), choppers galore, live band(Big Rick and the Troublemakers), plenty of good food vendors, the cold stuff, (thirst quenchers), babes…( the HOT stuff), celebrities, Billy Lane & Company, Dave & Jody Perewitz to name a few, plus Roadside Marty, the MC who brings all this together into one fabulous show, the climax of which is the awarding of the hand made trophies to all the winners in the Chopper building competition. These choppers are not your run of the mill machines…they are the results of what goes through a man’s mind, and are finally projected into reality!!! If you’ve never seen this production…see it next time at Biketoberfest…you’ll thank me!!! Oh yeah, the weather for this event was perfect, and the crowd was HUGE!!! The pictures can show it to you a lot better than I can with words, so, enjoy!!!

I had a blast shooting them and mixing with the crowd…the kind of “work” I love.

Hey, see ya next time…ride safe, thank a Vet, and, GOD Bless America…

2019 has come and is almost gone already… Biketoberfest always means the beginning of fall… we here in Florida wish the weather would remember that…. Hot as Hell this year but at least it didn’t rain on us til late Friday night…

Willie’s Tropical Tattoo Chopper Show by Miserable George

Like almost every other Chopper Show at Willie’s….the weather was perfect…maybe even a bit cooler…!!!  Our featured model of the day-Renea Hicks- was already hard at work when I got there, posing with a preselected bike, and, it seemed that every time you’d look at her, she had on a different outfit!!! Kudos to her….she worked super hard that day!! Usually, Biketoberfest features a slightly smaller crowd than Bike Week. Well, it started out that way, but as the day wore on, that crowd really grew!! As always too, lots of lovely ladies gracing the grounds in all sorts of eye-catching outfits, and speaking of “eye-catching” , our friend, Ellie, made the scene a little later in the day. Also on the grounds, were Dave Perewitz and daughter, Jody, holder of the womans’ motorcycle speed record…she raced at the Sons of Speed Races the following evening. We ran into “Orange John” Marinelli , former National Record holder in MC Drags, and lady drag racer Lily Padd…very exciting to see all these “fast” people!!! Rev. Al gave the invocation, and the awards for bike show winners were given out. Nice to see ol’ Roadside Marty again, AND, his Dad was there too. They also had a chopper in the competition. Oh yeah, I also ran into Lulu, my old boss!!! I tell ya….Willie runs one hell of a show…always the Thursday of Bike Week(s)…make it if you can. Nice to see all the Vets there again too…GOD BLESS ‘EM. Until next time…stand up for your country, and support our troops…God Bless America…
