 I was going to write a whole lot about the event and then as I was going through the photos, I decided to let them tell their own story. If you want to know more, I suggest you attend the next event, which will be during Biketoberfest. Yes, we will remind you on Bikernet. The lot is so full with motorcycles and people it is sometimes hard to get from one side of it to the other.

 Now, while the Bike Show is going on out front there's good food, beverages and music going on out back and on the sides of the building.

The other part of what people come to see is Roadside Marty and the Awards Ceremony. Roadside is an Old Friend, and I really enjoy watching him being humorous to the audience when he comments on the motorcycles and their owners between trying to get women to change into the t-shirts he and the group are giving out. I have seen it happen in the past but only got a quick flash this year.

 While it's all happening and people are having a great time, there's a reason for this event. It's all about raising money to Help Our Veterans. All Profits go to the Veterans Support Fund!
