The Lowbrow Getdown 2017 - Lowbrow Customs

Well, we survived yet another year of shenanigans in the woods. The Lowbrow Getdown, like years prior, was a bit different, full of surprises and special in it's own little ways. From Russian Pizza shots, to nuts-to-butts flaming torches, swimming, the occasional explosion, music, and of course the beloved guys trying to blow up their motors at 5am by revving them to the limit. This year's Lowbrow Getdown did not disappoint by any means. There were tons of brilliant bikes, some really innovative and killer camp set ups, along with just some of the best people to hang out with.

Friday ended up with a slow and steady flow of people rolling in after work. A lot of people were wondering why half the campground looked shutdown and unfortunately the board of health laid down some new rules on Nelson's Ledges this year causing a little confusion. Most claimed the prime camping spots by the middle of the day, as others scrounged to make the new rules of the camp ground work and find a spot. Overall the feeling of the campground felt more like a community than previous years, as everyone was packed in as tight as they possibly could. This made it extremely easy to to find each group of friends who grouped together by their city or state. In the center area was each crew which had a few sites in a row from Buffalo, Canada, Cleveland, Youngstown, Columbus, Canton, Pennsylvania, Medina and so on.

The award for the best campsite definitely went to the Pennsylvania crew, who made up their very own makeshift bar and were giving away free Russian Pizza Shots all weekend long. What is a Russian Pizza shot you ask? First you start by putting a piece of pepperoni on your tongue with a little bit a marinara sauce on the top. Then you take a shot of cheap vodka and eat the pepperoni! It's not the most appetizing thing to be getting your kicks from, but it was a huge hit with everyone. People piled over to their site all weekend long and it was all the rage.

Saturday morning we started off with a small ride to Warren, Ohio for some brunch and then ended up picking up some more supplies, aka beer. Most of the day was filled with cliff jumping, swimming, and lounging on floaties. There was and abundance of killer floatation type devices this year too. A hand full of people just laid around nursing their hang overs at their camp, while some tinkered with their bikes. There was even a few guys playing acoustic guitars and getting their sing along on. Paul from Dan's Dogs served up his gourmet hotdogs all day long too, which made for some great munchables. And, yet again, the occasional obnoxious reving of a motorcycle would echo through the trees every few hours while people screamed at them to shut the F*%$ up.

Things got a little hazy on Saturday night but there was a ton of fun had by all and we will leave it up to your imaginations to figure the rest out!

Here is a some helpful tips for next year if you plan on coming out to The Lowbrow Getdown. Get their early, it's more fun that way and you will get a prime camping spot. Bring stuff to trick out your camping spot, make it the craziest and coolest spot and you will be the talk of the campground!  Bring a floatie, a tube, water wings, or some type of floatation type device for swimming, because it's super fun. Make sure to bring ear plugs, or noise cancelation head phones so you can sleep (don't say we didn't warn you). Oh and lots of Advil, Tylenol, or other headache pain killers of choice to help your hangover!

Thank you to everyone who came out this year and we hope to see each and every single one of you at next year's Lowbrow Getdown for some more wild and crazy fun.
