Hardcore Brothers @ Uzziah Bar :: 11.27.08

1 yakittyyaks
The sky was clear, the wind was still, and then everything rumbled from hereon. Hardcore Brothers Custom hosted Bike Night at (look above) - a small place situated in front of a plaza along Malate. Bikes began streaming in since 8PM after we arrived, and since all of us haven't had dinner yet, we decided to scour the streets - ending up at Pizza Hut along the boulevard. A decent meal and quite a leg stretch after, the plaza was already lined up with the stars of the evening. I think everyone was also surprised at the turnout. Making Jimmy's invite one for the books. Where else would you find the best bikes in the metro parked in one place?

I think Jimmy himself didn't anticipate quite a turnout, which was too much for the small joint to handle. The wristband ticket ran out after a hundred entries. I think I even saw the waiters selling beer outside. Everyone was huddled outside the plaza instead of the inside Uzziah - which was great, the bikes were in full view of everyone. The evening turned out rather to be an exhibit of sorts that it became hard where to look first. Most of the crowd knew everyone else, it was a gathering of different groups from all over.
Crotch rockets and cruisers sharing one space under a clear night sky. What else can you ask for? Ok so the oggling women and children did mingle, but who were we to mind them? Although there were lots of crap littering the place, and from the looks of it, they're human crap. Condolences to those rubbers that happen to run over some.

Although I did promise myself I'd snap some photos of the Castrol Bike - sraight out of the HBC garage. It was "bheeed eeehsss" so to speak. Really funky. Extended downtubes, extended backbone, rigid chassis, long tank, the Mity Mike pipes were a doozy. Everything on the bike was a step above the norm. I am pleased to see pinoys coming out with this kind of accomplishment.
Great to see a work of art for the night. Couldn't stay past the 12MN mark, Gil had to accompany us up till coastal and ride back to oversee of the rest who stayed behind to enjoy the evening further. All in all, it was great riding with the group again, jamming with the noisies and thanking the hand above for blessing us with a safe and clear evening.

Here were the eye candies:
Great night Jimmy. Props for pulling everything together. Hardcore Brothers Custom is at Bagtikan, Makati. HBC EasyRide airs every Sunday 11:30AM at Studio 23. Oh, and thanks to the Dog who allowed me to take a picture of his vest. Really courteous guy. Laterz.

Record Set

0 yakittyyaks
Sooner or later you come across a seemingly small thing, but the more you take a closer look the more you start to understand, having your ass severely rocked for a full 1197 kilometers in just a little over an earth's worth of full rotation is no small feat. On scoots even.

Bike Night

0 yakittyyaks

Jimmy Barinaga and the rest of the HARDCORE BROTHERS crew will be hosting an all out fun evening this Thursday, November 27, at Uzziah Resto Bar, 560 Remedios Circle, Malate, Manila. Parking won't be a problem as the entire lot is reserved solely for two wheels - excluding trolleys. Expect the place to twinkle with chrome and the ground to rumble.

Found this stashed in my old files. Amazing how a single photo can speak a lot to one's person. Here's to the good old times - and to moving forward. Vamos para frente!

The Gaboon Sissybar

5 yakittyyaks
Crafted from an original design out of the Williestreet Choppers scrapbook. Hidden bracing and lines that flow well with my "300" fender. Aptly fashioned after its namesake, the Gaboon sissybar is everything your bike isn't ready for. Out this December 2008.
