Lowbrow Customs At Pinned Ohio 2016

Pinned Ohio 2016

Six years running now, Pinned Ohio is the first real chopper event of the year for our state. Every year I look forward to seeing so many friends and finding out what they have been working on over the winter months. The last few years Pinned has been held at The Rice Paddy, a vintage Japanese motorcycle and OEM part salvage yard. The space truly sets the tone for a gritty and beautiful background for the show. For some reason since Pinned has moved to the Rice Paddy it's always been dreary but it never scares the party away.

The Trip Down

My wife Kat and our friend Meeka met me at Lowbrow HQ around 4:00 pm and we set off for Columbus via I-71. Though the sun was shining, the wind was aggressive and cold but all I could do was smile. It felt so good to actually be able to ride for more than a few minutes and actually take some photos. I had a new view for the weekend as well thanks to Kyle for loaning me his hot rod of a Sportster.  The only really hiccup in the trip was as I was snapping some photos of Meeka, I noticed her Sporty was spewing oil from her front head. I gave the cutoff the highway sign and we merged on to a median to check it out. I checked all around the head and couldn't find any cracks or signs to where the oil was coming from. I double checked she had enough oil to make it down to Columbus and we continued on our way because the bike was still running well. We made it down to my friend Dan's house around 7:00 pm and set up camp in his guest bedroom really fast. We then made it off to the Rice Paddy to hang at the Triple Six Crew garage for a little bit and find some food with them.

The Day Of The Show

Every year Pinned Ohio has this laid back, chill atmosphere. Bikes slowly piled into the complex, some were shivering while others were smiling because they saw one of their friends waiting with fresh beer in hand for them. The rain would come and go throughout the day but it didn't really scare anyone who was there, the party just kept going. The Triple Six Crew garage made for a pretty good shelter as long as you could stand the Trap music shenanigans that were going on. As the party came to a close there was still one last thing everyone was looking forward to, the raffle. I swear almost every single person I knew won something and Kerry's frown turned upside down when he won a new helmet painted by our friend, Michael Geltz. Well kind of upside down, he was really stoked, I swear. All in all, Pinned Ohio 2016 was extremely fun and I'm stoked I got to see so many friends. I hope next year it's sunny and hot, just saying.
