The most amazing aspect of the motorcycle industry is the constantly changing styles of bikes and unending evolution of the riding subculture. Motorcycles are equal parts rolling works of art mixed with state of the art engineering and a heavy dash of freedom that makes the pastime one of the most recognizable in the United States.
Over the years we have seen custom motorcycles take different shapes from choppers with raked front ends, café racers that prided themselves on hitting 100 MPH as quickly as possible, kidney rocking bobbers, pro-streets with ginormous rear wheels and baggers that look like a distant cousin from your full dresser. Right now we are experiencing a resurrection of café racers and bobbers coupled with a rockabilly subculture that enjoys simplicity in motorcycles, hard pounding music and women dressed as pinup girls… What is not to like about this movement!

This weekend we are headed to Chicago thanks to #ProgressiveMC who has sponsored us again (check out last week’s Laconia Motorcycle Week Coverage) to bring the best coverage of the Motoblot (http://motoblot.com) event to our readers!
Motoblot is an event based on Fulton Street by the Cobra Lounge in Chicago that will bring you some of the best bobbers, café racers and rat rods that you have ever seen. There will be live music and pinup girl contests starting on Thursday night taking you right through 5:00 PM on Sunday. Address: W Fulton St & N Justine St, Chicago, IL 606007
We will be back at the event not only for coverage but also giving out free Beantown Baggers Tee Shirts, pins and helmet stickers for interested attendees (while supplies last). Expect us at the Progressive Parlor & Flo’s Chop Shop around 3:00 PM on Saturday – if you don’t see us, just ask. The event goes on until midnight Saturday and promises to be a great time with some amazing photos for us to share with our readers!
Will you be there? If so, email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know! We look forward to seeing you there.
Beantown Baggers has partnered with Progressive Insurance to bring Beantown Baggers readers the best Motoblot coverage possible!
