Some shots from Timonium Bike Show in Maryland Sponsored by Lowside Magazine

I just got back from a 4 day trip down to Maryland for the Timonium Bike Show which was hosted by Lowside Magazine. We brought some bikes down to display and some custom handlebars and parts for people to check out. I just want to start off by saying a huge thank you to Rich and all the crew from Lowside this is the first time I met them in person and they were an awesome group of guys and gals who showed us a great time down in Maryland and were friendly enough to shuffle us around and let us crash at their places etc. Needless to say we didnt leave much time for sleep and the 4 days seemed like an endless time of laughter and antics. It was nice to put some faces to the names that I constantly see Instagram activity from and nice to see some friends in the Industry that I dont get to see all the time like my local friends. Big thanks to Jason from The Shop LINY for taking the trip down there with me. For anyone who follows my work and doesnt know Jay he is a great friend of mine and builds some absolute killer stuff. He is really on the down low when it comes to advertising etc. but he is on Instagram for anyone that wants to follow his work its @theshopliny Always great to see Big Nick from Industry Customs since he moved out of our area, and Mike and James from 47 Industries in NJ I dont think we all stopped laughing at any point during that trip. So here are just a few pics of what I had on my cellphone I should have taken more but we were too busy drinking and having a good time so this is all I got Loading up the Greasy Dozen Panhead and the Shovelhead to take the trip down there Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App Loading up the beverages for the trip on the way to pick up Jay Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App Jays Knuckle that he brought down for the show and a shovel he just finished up for a customer Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App The Greasy Dozen Panhead and my '77 Shovel down at the show Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App Crowds walking around the bikes Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App James looking sexy as ever modeling for 47 Industries Custom Sporty Hardtails Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App James trying to get a little action from Craig on Sat night Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App Greasy Dozen Panhead outside of the show Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App
