  • Опубликовано: 12 июл 2018
  • A Vlog of Matt Laidlaw riding into and experiencing Born Free 10. This Vintage and custom Harley-Davidson show has gotten bigger and bigger every year. It's one of the best places to check out tons of Vintage Harleys and Indian motorcycles. Celebrating their 10th year of consecutive shows this year was epic as ever.

    The blonde Harley at the beginning of the video took the cake . When the music came on it went good with the video , the beat went along just right . That beat would be good with future videos . Long live the blonde Harley 😍

    Buying a Harley doesnt get you into a "culture" . Either your a weekend bank loan biker or a true enthusiast..which you aren't.

    Would you consider reviewing a new 2019 Street Glide? On RU-clip I can only find videos about Street Glide Specials or Street Glide CVO's. I would like to learn about a regular stock from the factory, working man's Street Glide. Not the more expensive models. Anyway, I would get the least expensive one and then modify it to my liking, not someone else's. Thanks for showing us around the cool sites and motorcycle gatherings. They are fun to watch!

    Matt you are full of shit the show was totally commercialized venders everywhere you have to pay to get in what a bunch of shit. all I saw was a bunch of Mexicans. you won't to know why the industry is in decline is all the commercialization and the blacks and the Mexicans are taking over. white people are giving Harley the finger and walking away.

    Great video. Just wondering your reasons for placing your mobile phone so low and away (on your right hand crash bar)?

    • Francis Smith
      Francis Smith 7 месяцев назад

      I also remembered, whilst sleeping that you did a video on the new HD Bluetooth headset, and then had a flash back this morning that you were using it in this video.
      With Bluetooth you don’t need the phone nearby, which means less cluttered on your handle bars and less chance of being stopped by the Police for using a mobile phone whilst riding.
      Save riding.

    • Matt Laidlaw
      Matt Laidlaw  7 месяцев назад

      I don’t like to mount my phone on my bars. It makes them look cluttered.

    Born Free looks like a great show, but if you really feel only Harleys make great customs, I would say you're sadly mistaken. I've seen many killer metric custom builds as well. I understand your bias toward Harley, but how about acknowledging there are other fine bikes out there in this big old world as well. Still love your vids!

    Excellent Vlog Matt. I really enjoy the spotlight that you shine on some of the Southern California bike shows and some of the cool hangouts where those who ride can go to. Would you know the best way to get down to your dealership from San Francisco that would help avoid the dreaded Southern California traffic? Me and a buddy want to ride down and see your shop but want to avoid as much traffic as possible. Thanks again Matt.

      The fastest is just going down the 5 freeway then taking the 210 or 10. Go on a Sunday. Traffic is going to be bad any day unless it's the middle of the night.

    Matt, you are so right. If it wasn't for H-D, any event/show/rally/etc. would not even be anything since a very high percentage are H-D's. Never really thought of it that way until you mentioned that point now and I've been riding a long time.

    Matt, I hear you on becoming part of the culture and heritage. And that’s nice- especially if you have a really good local dealer to support you. I wish we had someone like you as our dealer in Florida. Our local stealership has me so frustrated with botched warranty work that I’m ready to run my shit into the mangroves at 70mph just to total it out with insurance. At this point, I’m never going to buy another new bike because there’s no point when the local dealer sucks.
