Grampa David Gooden rode his classic shovel head.
Speedo brought a sport bike technology chopper.
Benny Cisak and Phil Crank doing some last minute adjustments.
Mike Shocp brought his really clean sporty.
Steve Aretz had the first two stroke to compete. His Suzuki GT550 really looks sweet.
Bob Marshal and his fully loaded KZ-1000 Police bike.
Pete and Jennifer Cushing going to Stampede 2 up. A great way to honeymoon.
F-Bomb always rides a small displacement bike. This year was no exception. He brought his Honda 250 Rebel in a Sportster frame.
Sue and Steff Brooks, aka Mr. and Mrs. Mayagi
