Pinned Ohio 2015

Soggy boots and damp muggy air, with dark grey clouds that circled over my head leaving for the occasional sun ray to peak through ever so slightly. Aromas of asian bistro filled the air and the echoing sounds of wet air cleaners coughing after they have been kicked over for the 20th time by almost every bike in attendance. Music blared in the front right corner of the Rice Paddy compound, surrounded by hundreds of parts, chassis, and scraps of what used to resemble probably some amazing and rare Japanese bikes. Close friends making jokes about each other and beers being drank by all pretty early in the day. It rained off and on all day long but no one who actually came seemed to really care. It was a weekend to remember, one to make memories and see friends I haven't seen in too many months due to the long Ohio winter.

This was the over all feel at Pinned Ohio this year, which is a motorcycle event/show based out of Columbus Ohio. On it's 5th year now, Kareem Jackson has made a grass roots event feel like a annual party you can never miss out on. Good people, great bikes of all shapes and kinds, all with a laid back atmosphere. I believe this is my 4th time going and you think you would know what to expect when showing up but it never ceases to amazing me. It's cool to see familiar bikes at an annual event and analyze them all over again, I seem to always find some new interesting detail or added addition to the over all character of the bike. I guess to me it's getting to see the over all life of the bike without owning it.

I feel like the rain may have scared some away this year but everyone that showed up made it one hell of a time. Kareem said he is going to be doing this event again for a 6th year and probably even longer so if you skipped because of the rain this year, you get to redeem yourself next year and come! If you don't like having fun, I guess you could stay home. Pinned Ohio is in the middle of May and is always a good time, I promise. Follow them on their IG page @pinnedohio for more info and more pics of the event.

-Till next year, Pinned Ohio!
