Who is not pride of his bike? And some, with or without the help of custom builders, go to the extreme to be certain to come back home with a big trophy and possibly a feature in my website. Below, a non-inclusive list of those bike shows you should visit for great pictures and the opportunity to talk to the bike builders who can teach you a few tricks you could use on your own sled. After the jump a chronological list.
