Last Saturday my girlfriend and I headed out to Dorchester Ontario for some Thanksgiving festivities and while there we attended the annual fair. This year the fairs main attractions were a freestyle motocross demo and a demolition derby.
I am posting the coverage today because a) it doesn’t really fit anywhere else and b) Dorchester residents who had never seen FMX before could be heard uttering WTF when the two riders putting on the demo took to the sky.
This is the first time I have attended a derby that wasn’t at a Monster truck event and I can certainly see the appeal of them from both a spectator and participant stand point.
It pains me to admit I am ‘one of those guys’ but I really want to see an FMX flip in person and so far it has not happened, I won’t go as far to be that jackass in the crowd that yells do a back flip but hopefully it happens soon.
Both of these riders were pretty good at what the did so I really wish the announcer just let them ride openly more than tell them what to do.
Got a new readers ride that I shot last weekend which should be going up Monday (provided I have time to edit the photos), and Sunday, weather permitting (and after my girlfriend runs a half marathon), I am going to swing by the SQUEAKY CLEAN Specialty Meet/Show @JRP.
I was reading a Taurus wagon build thread that reminded me of this Bonneville I posted last December which is still the best looking Bonneville I have ever seen.
The owner and I emailed back and forth a few times so I’ll see if I can get an update on this car.
