May the Horse Be With You.
Horse Backstreet Choppers has been around for more than five
years now, and before that it was "Iron Horse" - but anybody who
knows anything about choppers knows this stuff. I guess my
favorite time in motorcycle journalism was the last few issues
of the the old Iron Horse when stuff was really falling apart.
There were all these hate articles on the web and folks were
jumping from the rag like rats from a sinking ship. Some new
editor was hired to clean up the rag and make it more
"mainstream" - that didn't fly.
From the ashes arose The Horse: the home of the backstreet,
bare-knuckled, ass-kicking chopper - and it's been that way ever
since. Well, no "movement" is complete with out it's annual
gathering, and it appears that the "Smoke Out" has been
gathering steam year after year. I was actually gonna go this
year - but seriously, it was a 1600 mile trip from Denver, so I
had my buddy Chuck send me some pictures instead.
Now you can check 'em out too.
