|DESMO’s Tenth Annual BBQ was held at the Thomas Bull Memorial Park on Sunday, August 15, 2010. The weather was a bit lacking, but that didn't hamper the enthusiasm. Our biggest crowd yet came out to chow down, show off their bikes, and to compete in our raffle. Ex-racer Cook Nielson was on hand to sign autographs and swap stories, and helped judge the great bikes in our bike show.
New member Jody W. showed off her one-of-a-kind Ducati Monster S2R, customized with a Sharpie (and featured in the October 2010 Cycle World). Her bike won Best Naked. Allen W., meanwhile, won Best Vintage, for his 1980 900SS - beating out an earlier 900SS - and becoming a repeat-winner.
The trophies were truly inspiring; I'm not sure how the People's Choice award winner got home a two-foot tall trophy, but I know it will be proudly displayed on Jody's mantle.
