FOB Paul DeJong sends greetings from his home in Aarle-Rixtel. The most famous chopper festival in The Netherlands is about 10 blocks from our friend's shop, so Paul has never misses it. Here's a recap and some photos from the first motorcycle adventure of 2010 in Holland:
Why going to the "Liberator" show for the 29th time when everything is the same? Well, first because it's only half mile away from home, first ride of the year after a very cold winter, and bikes, beers and bitches.
This winter was very cold so Maat of Blanko Loco Custums and I didn't touch our bikes for months, and had only one week to make them ready for the show. Maat had some electical problems and his SR500 was hard to start, but he solved it and rode his bike without drivers license and no motorcycle experience to my shop. It took him 45 minutes to clear the 4-mile ride! He didn't find 2nd gear and rode four miles in first gear, blocking cars and bicycles.
