Biketoberfest at Willie’s Tropical Tattoo ChopperTime 2023 by Valgal

Another GREAT old school chopper/bike show in the books for Willie Jones of Tropical Tattoo at the ChopperTime event! The crowd was perfect and so was the weather! Saw friends there old and new from near and far this weekend! Even met a bunch of cool NEW friends! 

Miserable George and I love coming to cover Willie’s twice a year, we would never miss it! 

Best bike show EVER!!!

OK see y’all for Bike Week 2024

 Love y’all, ENJOY! ~ Valgal

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…Bike Week…2019 by Miserable George

Ya know, I’m not even sure just how many years the fabulous Willie’s Tropical Tattoo Chopper Show has been going on during Bike Week and Biketoberfest, but,

it gets bigger and better every year!!

Plenty of parking space, food and drink vendors, babes, and of course, some of the craziest hand made choppers you’ll ever come across.

Roadside Marty kept the ball rolling all day as only HE can. Ace builder, Dave Perewitz was there too, plus, I did run into a top female racer, Brittney Olsen, in her signature red skirt and golden slippers!!!  Big Rick and the Troublemakers were wailing out back…good show, Rick.

The group of Veterans was back to enjoy the show…God bless ‘em. I had company with me this year…Tonya…one of our cover girls. It was her first trip to Bike Week, and, she loved it!! I think the pictures can tell the story a lot better than I can, so…enjoy…!!!

ValGal has some stuff coming up too…Ride safe…

**New Pics** TROPICAL TATTOO CHOPPER SHOW by Miserable George and ValGal

I’ve been attending this event for a good many years now, Biketoberfest, and Bike Week both, and the weather usually varies somewhere between hot and cold, BUT, this year for Biketoberfest, 2018, I think we broke a heat record…!! I mean, it was down-right UNBEARABLE. Even in the limited shady area…it was HOTTTT…!!

Even in the un-GODLY heat, the crowd was pretty nice for Biketoberfest…down a bit (of course) from regular Bike Week, but,

there was no shortage of beautiful, hand built, custom machines.

Ah, and of course, there were BABES!!! Maybe, THEY brought in SOME of that heat.

Big Rick, and the Troublemakers provided the swingin’ sounds, beer and hard iced tea stands (I guess), helped to quench at least a little bit of the thirst.

Gotta thank Wild Bill for a ride in his one-of-a-kind ‘40 Caddy Rat Rod…natural AC…(no windshield!!) I tell ya, we stuck it out as long as we could…got pics of the winners, but, not of the trophy presentations…sorry…just too HOT for this old boy.

Our thanks to Willie, and Roadside Marty for their usual fabulous event.

Hey, remember our VETS, and stand up for your country….

Choppertime at Willie’s Tattoo 2018 by Miserable George

I really don’t quite remember how many of Willie’s Chopper Shows I’ve been to, but, several other veterans and I agreed that this years’ was one of the largest!!! As has been the case lately, March 15 dawned bright and clear, AND…COLD!!!  But, thanks to the Big Weatherman in the Sky, it warmed up quite well…well enough for a few of the little darlings prancing around to shed some un-needed clothing…ah yes, biker babes…ya can’t beat ‘em!!! Out front, were several Rat Rods that the little darlings enjoyed posing with, plus, all the custom built bike entries, and in the back yard, were a host of vendors, and of course, the band stand, featuring a friend of mine…Big Rick and the Troublemakers. Back around front, it was time to award trophies, many of them handmade, along with tossing out of souvenir T’s and the usual “coolies”.

Gotta thank all the ladies who posed for me, and the inimitable “Roadside Marty” as well as Willie himself for their hospitality.

Nice to meet Mike Lichter and son, and famous bike builder Dave Perowitz again. All in all, a fabulous day…looking forward to the next one!! Hey, support our troops, and, stand up for your country…ride safe, (and often)…

Miserable George
