2011 DESMO BBQ / Concours d'Elegance


DESMO’s 11th Annual BBQ was held at the Thomas Bull Memorial Park on Sunday, August 14, 2011. For the second year in the row, weather disrupted our festivities, but not our enthusiasm. While it kept some members away, there was still a large turn out, including ex-racer Cook Nielson who stopped by for a few hours to mingle with the crowd.

Mr. CleanThanks to the rain, there were a lot of contenders for the Pig Pen Award. Accolades actually went to Hamza A., for his road-grime encrusted 996. Jim C., however, not only picked up the Mr. Clean Award, he was our big winner with his 1969 350 Desmo collecting Best Vintage and People’s Choice Awards. Since it was tough to field bikes in every category, Lew W.’s ST picked up the Rat Bike Award in absentia. We’ve seen it before. It’s conquered before.

The highlight of the afternoon, for many, is the raffle. Our gratitude goes to Allie, Charlie, Howie, and Tony, for their help in making this a success. One benefit of the number of cages in the parking lot is everyone was able to take home their swag. This year's sponsors include:
