Rockers vs Mods #6 Event Recap

Friday, March 30, 2012

Between DJ Wild in the Streets spinning Ska, Northern Soul & Rockabilly and the amazing views only the Belmont can provide it was a perfect start to the sixth annual rockers vs mods. People were mingling, grabbing the rally swag and catching up with people some hadn’t seen since last years’ event.

Meet & Greet & The Belmont

From there we headed to Bryan Street Tavern to continue the party.

A perfect night at Bryan Street Tavern.

There were people everywhere. Hanging out in the parking lot, going on rides, it was a buzz of activity.

The first band was the Dangits, then the Gorehounds rocked our asses around midnight.

The morning started slowly, the scoots met at Vespa Dallas & the Cafe Bikes gathered at RPM Cycles. We all had a little gnosh, looked at each others’ bikes and got shop tours of the respective shops. Randy at Vespa Dallas has some very nice Vic Fletchall scoots and RPM had the new Norton to ogle.

After getting some food in us, we all rode over to the event space. Then the beer, bands and merciless heat ensued. It was a great space, but hotter than balls. Luckily we had plenty of ice cold Pabst Blue Ribbon to keep us cool. The food trucks were all lined up and people grabbed a beer, some  food and headed for the shade!

The day went well, people hung out, went for rides, checked out the vendors. It was really hot, so we cut to the raffle so people could get out of the heat before they fell out. We found good homes for all the Corazzo Gear, Dime City Cycles, RPM Cycles, Vespa Dallas & Kyle’s Scooter Shop (we had stuff from last year).

 We started the day with a long ride organized by Ron & Denver of Ace Scooter Club. They did an amazing job and even the locals got to see parts of Dallas we hadn’t seen before.

The might had fallen!

From there we headed to the Dubliner to relax and reflect on the mayhem of the weekend.

Thank you to all who showed up. This year was a ripping success and we have high hopes for the future.

We want to thank all the sponsors. Without them there would be no event.
