View Full Version : Our biker festival weekend

Jul 29th, 2007, 03:49 PM
Me and Corum won free tickets to one of the biggest biker festivals in the UK run by the Outlaws backpatch bike club. We just got back from the most fantastic weekend there.
Now the biker community is notoriously narrow minded when it comes to health and green issues but I'm pleased to say things are a changing! Having resigned ourselves to having to eat chips and baked beans all weekend we got there to discover TWO vegan food stalls, we went over in the evening to order some food and were told the two stalls were so popular that all the vegan food was sold out by 10.00 a.m:eek:
The people buying the stuff were big hairy bikers!
The guys in the tent next to us - ZZ top lookalikes and not to be messed with by the looks of them muscles, big beards, righteous dudes etc, were getting ready to go out on their bikes, we asked them if they were off for a rideout and they said no mate, we're off to Sainsburys to buy some fruit - we can't cope with all this junk food:eek:

Heehee! A lot of them have suddenly started getting worried about their health. The beer belly contest was pathetic - the organisers couldn't find anyone really fat:D

What made it sillier was a bloke (one of the not-so-fat ones) won both the beerbelly competition and the bikini competition - he got himself a couple of hundred pounds in cash. :D

As promised...the parlous state of biker beerbellies these days



There are at least four blokes in bras entering the bikini babe competition :D


yep, this photo is a bit blurred, but I was in a state of shock! :D


this one should be bettter - the girls who were in the bikini babe competition staged a protest because the bloke won... they still lost! :p
