The Smoke Out is about choppers. It is about builders, from professional builders to those bloody-knuckled guys (and ladies) burning the midnight oil in an unheated shed to build a chopper they can call their own. Chops of all makes are featured, American, British, Metric, everything. The event is about riders, cross-town to cross-country in a rainstorm.
The event is two days to look at fine chops, listen to good music, relax, catch up with old friends or make new friends, eat good food, take a couple nice puts in a pretty countryside, drink some beer, shop the venders wares… and on and on…
There are two distinct groups of people at the Smoke Out. The first group is the readers, builders and riders known as THE HORSE world network of operatives. These people are the core of the chopper world. This is the place to be for the Chopper World State of the Union Address.
The second group of invited guest is those that want to observe the core of the chopper world. Maybe you’re a sport biker or maybe you drive a car and just saw an interesting bike show on the Discovery channel. Choppers are interesting. Feel free to come by. Don’t feel that you’re not welcome just because you are riding on a stock Honda.
