David Mann Chopper Fest was unseasonably warm this year. As most of these kinds of events go with seeing old friends, and meeting new ones, the weather seems to be an easy topic to bring up, instead of politics or works related conversations. Now that the weather has been discussed, it’s on to motorcycles, and who’s been working on what to show at this year’s outing. Chopper Fest is held at the Ventura fairgrounds, which is easy enough for the Northern California folk to head south for, and the Los Angeles and San Diego area to head north to. A sort of central meeting zone, where neither territories don’t mind the trip. It brings a nice change to the scene, since most events are held in the LA area, making Chopper Fest something to look forward to, with it only being another hour or so out. Here’s to looking forward to next year’s show, warm weather, and to David Mann for all the inspiration.
