The Run to Raton chopper gtg and trike giveaway.
« on: Jul 23, 2017, 17:46:05 »
So, I'm sorta picky but just the same I love motorcycles of all kinds for different reasons.  This weekend I headed North in my home state and hit up the first year of the #runtoraton chopper gtg.  Check it out on Instagram.  Raton is a tiny little town in northeast New Mexico.  My shovelhead motor build is too fresh and still breaking in to take on longer rides but the Mrs and I drove up to Raton, NM to check out the event anyway.  The big giveaway was a crazy trike built by JP Rodman with an S&S Panhead motor.  Met some cool folks, talked motorcycles, sipped Irish whiskey and took pics.  Saw some really great choppers, some crazy stuff I wouldn't ride and everything in between.  Good times.

Yeah, there were little or no bs attitudes there, everybody seemed to just be having a good time.  I met Jp and Oliver among others, nice guys, Jp is a wiz.  He has a cool shop and his parents were there helping things along.

Diggin the "C-cab Delivery" feel to the trike.
When you are Dead, you don't know that you are Dead. It is difficult only for Others.

It is the same when you are Stupid.

The black knucklehead or the white/blue panhead?  Both are sweet but I love that knuckle trike.

Thanks for sharing pictures of the show. I'd like to do that run. My son and daughter in law own a ranch in La Mesa just north of El Paso so we get to New Mexico about once a year.

Glad you liked the pics.  Bring rain gear, it was really wet in the late parts of the day.  I hope they do it again next year, I'll get to ride my chop and not be the chump who drove.
