By silverfish imperetrix, whose incorrupted eye
Sees through the charms of doctors and their wives
By salamander, drake, and the power that was undine
Rise to claim Saturn, ring and sky
By those who see with their eyes closed
you'll know me by my black telescope
The Dirtbag Challenge. Live the life. Thirty days to build a chopper, $1,000 budget (that includes the bike), and ya gotta ride it on a lovely 100 mile loop around the bay. Riders are the judges – only a Dirtbag can know a Dirtbag.
This one day a year is the best day of your life – the outlaw lifestyle at its best. Bands, beers, burgers; burnouts and general hooliganism. Hanging with the best and truest friends you’ll ever have
The website http://thedirtbagchallenge.com/ describes it best:
“The Dirtbag Challenge started as a reaction to the increasing perception that a custom motorcycle had to be expensive. There is a belief that custom bikes are the exclusive right of rich pretty boys and media personalities, rolling around on cookie cutter motorcycles that cost the same as a small family home. Well that’s bullshit.
The Dirtbag Challenge is a low rent chopper build-off, featuring real world bikes for riding in the real world. More than that, at the heart of it is a need to do your own thing, to break away from the same old mainstream ideals.
Dirtbag is about doing things your own way – without anyone’s approval, without anyone’s permission. Build the bike you want, live the life you choose. If we can do it, so can you.”
