My buddy CK and I ready for takeoff in front of the very
nice place, Ingas Cafe´ in Lidkoping Sweden. We stop by for a meal and good coffee on our tour
around the Great Lake in late July this summer. This fantastic retro place is still in the
50´s style exactly as it used to be back in time…..
My pal Dick is back from “Feast On Europe Tour” with his band The
Generals. I met him yesterday in his garage
working again after the brake on his latest project. Is this a Heavy Metal violent revolution?
The HOP UP`ers Swap meet in Vänersborg, has been welcoming
enthusiasts for 10 years now.
Many had cleared out their garage and put a lot of stuff in
front of hundreds of buyers this sunny Saturday. Whether you want to just walk around in the
area, look and chat with others, hope to discover the “hard to find" parts and
accessories, it was exciting to be there....... you never know what you’re going
One of the sunny summer days in July, Perra and Peter came by
for a short visit on their nice bikes, one Knuckle -37 and a Panhead -48. I really
enjoyed the visit. It was great to line up the bikes for a photo together with my
Knuckle -47 and later on for short run together before they ride away …..
However, my passion for their bikes makes me jazzed, so I forgot to include the BIKERS
in the pics!
On Wednesday this week my pal Ronney and I went to Mosten in Denmark
on our bikes; it’s a total trip of 470 miles plus some hours on the ferries between
Gothenburg and Fredrikshavn. The Mosten Race Days are one of, "the end of
summer” events here in Scandinavia. It was a great event, together with lots of
people (mainly bikers) who also took the chance to have real fun together with
old and new friends.
There were many extreme bikes and cars to be seen in the
pits and later on, the track on Mosten Race Days. It was for sure a very
exciting weekend for all the Drag Racers and their fans.
Mosten MC had booked The Leningrad Cowboys on Thursday
evening. They played a selection of rock'n'roll, ballads and covers, influenced
by polka and sort of folkloric Russian songs. All presented with lots of humor,
by the bands 11 Cowboys and two Leningrad Ladies….as well with their well-known
the guy who today runs and owns Ronney’s old Shovelhead chopper…. Nice bike and biker!
