great turn out for the Bike Blues & BBQ this past weekend in Fayetteville, AR. They say attendance was over 80,000, close to 17,000 bikes. 80% Harley or clones, only saw 6 other busas!! The local sport bike contingent was there, stuck together pretty tight. Even the loudest D&D's couldn't compete with the pure poop I heard all weekend long. Gasoline-converted to loud noise without that pesky horsepower byproduct was never so apparent... especially at the dyno. Some big fat smak talker wanted to put his S&S pile on the dyno right after a gsxr1000 posted 145 hp. Do these people just live in denial? I had to cover my ears, moms pulling crying babies from the scene as the pile barely made it to 82 hp @ about 600 decibles. The dude was ready to kick the dyno folks ass cause "you fuckers anit doing it right... wow. Funny thing though, on the road they would not mess with the busa, even when we were two up... reminded me of my wife's poodle when the cat is in the room> Casually look at the ceiling in total denial. Cat? what cat? About 6 PM Saturday, a police led motorcade came down Dixon st, you would have thought it was Bush.... 20,000 people went running, screaming Jessie James...scared me, looked like a dagerous situation...but we did get a chance to met him later, to tell you the truth, I think he was a little freaked out by the crowd as well. Not enough security for the rush. All in all, a very good festival....
