Bob Kay goes Born Free

On Saturday, June 28, 2013 Born Free 5 kicked off with over 200 sponsors and vendors from Japan, Europe, and all over the USA.

There was an ATM on site for guys to buy must needed parts but no cell service to keep in touch with their pals. The Born-Free Show is about the love of old motorcycles and like minded individuals having a good time together and enjoying these bikes of the past. The show is mainly about old motorcycles of all kind, but everything on 2 wheels are welcome.

We had one chopper jockey get on his cell and comment that it was just like the Smoke Out Rally only without camping, drag racing, dancing (professional and otherwise). It has the same old-sled vide.

Bob Kay was out at the show promoting our Hollister rally on July 6th. Click here for details on the Hollister Rally. He also had this to say about the history of Born Free:

The Born-Free Show is about the love of old motorcycles and like minded individuals having a good time together and enjoying these bikes of our fathers and fathers/fathers. Born Free is a collaboration between BORN Loser (Mike Davis) and FREEdom Machine & Accessories (Grant Peterson). Started as a small “get-together” in 2009 the show has grown to become the premier chopper show on the West Coast bringing fans and enthusiasts from around the world.
