Usually hot, always fun: BORN FREE 9

No doubt BORN FREE is THE show when it comes to Choppers. But it also has some more stuff to offer like skateboarding, unbearable heat and pretty much no cell phone reception (which is actually a good thing).

There’s really not much to be written about the Born Free Motorcycle Show that hasn’t already been said before: If you’ve been there, you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t been there, you’ve likely seen hundreds of photos and some great videos about it.

If you wanna go to chopper heaven, this is the place, if you want to see all the hip kids of California gathered in one spot, this is where you have to go, even better there’s no cell phone reception so no one is staring down at their phones instagramming or snapchatting all day long.

If you’re into sweating, you can go to the desert or you’ll just visit Born Free: You’ll be sweating your ass off watching all the local cool cats wearing jeans and sometimes even leather jackets while you’re dieing in your shorts.

With all the rest being pretty much the amazing business as usual, Vans and Joker’s Skateshop put up a giant half pipe this year. Big names in the skateboarding industry like Steve Caballero, Max Schaaf, Jason Jessee, Bucky Lasek and many others rocked the ramp and showed some of their amazing skills to an interested audience.

The Stampede was also a new thing going on Thursday night before the show, we really hope this will return again next year and become another Born Free tradition, just like Friday night’s pre-party at Cook’s Corner.
