When I got the plaque, one of my first thoughts was, "This ain't exactly Wozza worthy." Nevertheless, I did wollow in the adulation the bike received by attendees.

I watched the first 15 seconds of the Motoblot video and started yelling "GET OFF MY LAWN".

At me? At the other people there? At the bikes? At the general event? At all of it?

I'm confused.

I feel he may be referring to a different movie.

specifically:
The music
The Hipsters
The bikes.
It appears I have become the old man down the street that keeps yelling at the neighbor kids.

It's not for everyone, I suppose. My 22 year-old daughter didn't want to go because she  thought it looked offensive to women. My wife would have gone to be a good sport, but she was otherwise busy. It would have ground on her pretty hard, considering how long I hung out for the bike judging.

As for myself, I was being such a hipster with my chicken ceasar salad, two English brown ales and half a cigar.

There was, indeed, one very obnoxious band, otherwise they were mostly playing retro rock. The burlesque that shows up in one of the promo videos must have happened on a day when I wasn't there, which was fine with me.

Finally, regardless of the social diversity, or because of it, the diversity in bikes and hot rods was great to take in
