Even with the Chinese Covid thing the Show Must Go On and Willie and his crew at Tropical Tattoo did it again. Thanks!

 

Yes, the crowd was a tad smaller than last year, but I did not hear anyone complaining. It just made it easier to get around and in some cases get better shots of the bikes and people.

 
 

Myself and many others do not miss attending this event if at all possible. I even got to bring some new people to this one.

 After a quick tour through the bikes out front, to get an idea which ones I would be interested in seeing in more detail, I took the crew into the back where they were able to get some food and cold beverages while listening to the band.
 

While I do have a good time at these events, I still work grabbing photos for articles and talking to people. Luckily my son Dale was with me and helped out on the photos.

There were some vendors and also a Trump Tent, which has been at past events. The Bikers like Trump and show it by wearing support clothing. A good indication of how they are voting this year, and of course when other bikers see that it may also influence on how they vote.

I am sure that everyone is aware this is 2020, and it has been a very strange year. Well, weird also made it to the Old School Chopper Show. Yep someone picked this Evo as the Best Panhead.

Of course Roadside Marty the MC went off on the judge. They did correct it and give the dude a different trophy.

 While this is a Bike Show, a big part of it is the MC Roadside Marty especially when he is giving out trophies. He kicks ass!
 
 
 
 
Roadside's other talents include trying to get a female to flash and or to remove her top. The usual way that happens is to offer them a free shirt. But they have to put it on right there.
 
 

Besides having a good time this event also raises money for the veterans and the proceeds go to www.veteranssupportfund.com
