2-Stroke Hooligans Present Biketoberfest 2020
« on: April 06, 2020, 11:31:33 PM »
We have had so many request to do a show again that the 2-Stroke Hooligans are going to host the 1st annual  Bike-toberfest on the 2nd Saturday of October at Cooks Corners.
We hope this Corona virus thing has passed by then, and if not, we will reschedule.   All of us are looking forward to re-visiting the old days and a relaxed lo-key home spun vintage motorcycle meet. You can park where you like, come whenever you want and leave whenever too.  Covered/shaded areas for displaying your bike/s, Cooks has great food, cold beer and live music after 1:00pm. A great family outing, and O'Neill Regional park is 3 miles away for people wanting to camp. No entry fees, just come and re-live the old days like we used to with Doug Johnson, and /or take a nice drive through Live Oak Canyon, it's all right there and we are looking forward to seeing everyone once again as it has been a long time since the Hooligans hosted an event in the OC.   Yes, in honor of Doug, we will fire up the strokers at noon and do a "smoke-out"   If I get motor-vated,  I'll make up a few hand made con-rod trophies with the hand rubbed lacquer finish that the 2-Stroke Hooligans are famous for. As always, I'm looking for volunteers to do simple tasks like help us with set-up, moving tables, and putting up banners, and most importantly; Having Fun!

Hey, Jay! I'd love to make it down for this!

I haven't been to the SoCal 2T event since Hansen Dam 2003, when Buttrider picked up Gavin and Ash from the UK and I up at the airport and drove us around all weekend.  I had the pleasure of meeting Steve Turner and his Dad, Doug Johnson, Robakun, Steve Hernandez, Peter Yapelli, and the rest of the SoCal USA2strokers crew. 

Best of luck with the event, hope I can make it.
Wasting time on 2T forums since the dawn of the internet.

I still have my jacket.  Wish I could attend, too far from Alabama for me to travel at this time.

Thanks guys, we will look forward to seeing old friends once again.
We have just gotten confirmation and commitment of a sponsor for the event so there will be some modest prizes and awards.
The awards will be the high quality hand made solid hardwood plaques with 10 coats of hand rubbed finish, topped with genuine blown up 2-stroke engine parts. This is a 2-stroke Hooligan tradition we are going to re-instate.  I am also looking for someone who would like to do the event t-shirts, please contact me if you are interested. 

This event is open not only to 2-stroke bikes, but any 2-stroke powered machine, and all Vintage motorcycles are also welcome.  If you want to volunteer to assist with the event, I have many small tasks that don't take much time, just a little effort, so feel free to contact me.  Most of all, we hope you all will come out and attend. It has been 5 long years since we had an event here in Orange County and look forward to doing it again as it is long overdue.
Remember, this is all about, and for, you guys; it would be nothing without you.

Hello everyone,
sorry for not being on the forum more, been busy with work which keeps me away from home.

The  1st annual Bike-toberfest will be at Cooks Corners in Trabuco Canyon, Orange county, on the 2nd Saturday, the 10th of October.
https://cookscorners.com/  Cooks has food, beverages (adult and kids) plenty of motorcycle and vehicle parking and a large shaded patio as well.

  We will get going around 9PM, but you are welcome to show up at any time. Awards will be at noon, AFTER the Smoke-Out. 
There will be some awards presented for the bikes, so be sure to have yours all polished up!
'
Camping is available  3 miles away at O'neill Regional park,  https://www.ocparks.com/parks/oneill/

Looking forward to seeing all of you again at Cooks and re-newing old and new friendships.
 
Jay

 Last update Sept. 13.
 
 Just want to be sure this event, ( gathering ), is still happening.
 
 Is it just a few folks meeting up for chow / brews and some bench racing,
 or a few dozen / hundred folks gathering for a 2-stroke event like in the past.
 I have not seen anything outside of 2SW promoting this years show.

 I am far enough away that I'll need to trailer my bike (s). At least most of the
 way south. A bit of an effort and cost if only a couple folks show up.

 Curious and would like to know whats up.
 Thanks, Jeff

I don't have much confidence in this being a "real" event. More like a couple people meeting at a location with almost zero publicity for it. The lack of updates and response here should be telling.
When I spoke with Jay in person a month ago he had not contacted Cooks to set anything up, or to make them aware that an event was planned, or to confirm if they would even allow it considering the current virus restrictions.  His last update on Sept 13 was in response to my questions earlier that day about his April & May posts and what was going on with the event.

I wonder if anyone will actually show?

Thanks to the two stroke hooligans that attended the event today.
 Great seeing some ole faces and the benchracing stories.
 Looking forward to the next event and a BIG turnout.

Had a good time seeing some of the OG strokers again. Good times catching up and reminiscing about past gatherings/rides/events. Loooking forward to the next one and maybe we can the word out better and have a larger group.
