On Wednesday, September 24th, we took another Day Ride, but we did it with a little twist.

We called this Day Ride our Scooter Adventure Ride!

FIRST ANNUAL HERITAGE SQUARE BLOCK PARTY

On Sunday, October 12, 2014 we had our First Annual Heritage Square Block party here in the Biker Rags shopping center. The Heritage Square shopping center houses some pretty cool businesses!

Of course, there’s Biker Rags, and also Barillaro Speed Emporium, Gene’s Hot Rods, Out Motoring, and Willis Cycle Works. With so many great shops in one area, we all banded together to throw a huge party.

Despite the day being shrouded in occasional downpours, a large crowd came out to swap and gawk. It was clear to us that everyone was really psyched up for the day and we will most definitely have more block parties in the future!

Here are photos from the day: Continue reading
