Sunday, Aug. 6th., was another blistering , hot, Florida summer day….I mean…it was HOTTT, but, ValGal and I braved the heat, and boogied down to Palm Shores Customs for a gathering of the Rocket Coast Chapter of the Antique Motorcycle Club of America.
As always, there was a pretty nice crowd, despite the awful heat…we even noticed a few bikes there that we hadn’t seen before. Palm Shores Customs had their shop open, and, inside was a huge electric fan, which did a pretty good job of cooling people off. Also, they had a few of their own customs on display…all of antique status…nice!!
We admired a 1952 Indian there, which we will try to feature later in OSB Magazine!
If you enjoyed adult beverages, the Cabana Shores Restaurant was close by and serving some pretty yummy looking food too. THAT was a big attraction!!! Also admired 2 1958 Chevy BelAires parked in the area…nice cars!! I’m told that their next gathering MIGHT be in the Cocoa-Merritt Island area…so, stay tuned…! Interested in joining…? Call 321-543-8944, OR get ‘em on line at firstname.lastname@example.org…Maybe when they get up to our area, it will have cooled down a bit!!! Hey, ride safe…
Miserable & ValGal…
The Indian Lookout Country Club hosted the annual event once again. The weekend was filled with Bands, Vendors, Custom and Antique Bike shows plus two days of the Great American Rodeo. The event takes place in upstate New York in a little town of Duanesburg, NY The Country Club is 200 acres of camping on fenced in private property. Once inside you make your own fun. You can buy a bottomless beer mug and fill it for the whole weekend. They have been known for hosting top name bands such as Molly Hatchet, The Outlaws, The Van Zandt band,Joan Jett and The Edgar Winter Group. The bands play all weekend long for your music enjoyment. Musician Ron Jones played on the day stage which entertained the crowd. They have a large tent set up right by the Waterin’ Hole Bar that you can get out of the hot sun and maybe a stray shower.
If you enter your custom scoot or Antique bike, various trophies are given away for the best in the show.
Friday and Saturday afternoons belong to the Great American Motorcycle Rodeo. Your host Chuck Smith will have you hooten’ and howlin‘ for your favorite rider in the beer games including the plank ride, slow race, tire pull, hot dog bite and many more. There are vendors there offering bike parts, ad on’s and accessories. You don’t have to bring food, there are plenty of food vendors to fill your stomach while there. Saturday night is the big event everyone waits for. The International Contest which features, a number of girls who participate and dance for a prize for the best of the show. A trophy will be given away to the one who does her best if you get my drift.
