FINLAND TRIP pt.1... Road Weirdos clubhouse party
First installment of pics from the trip I just took. I got a last minute opportunity to go to Finland for a few days to take in a chopper show in Helsinki with Fiddy from DAVIDA helmets.
This post is about the ROAD WEIRDOS clubhouse on the outskirts of the city. Its in a really green, leafy location and would be difficult to find if you didn't have someone take you there (thanks Antsu!)
The Road Weirdos did their own thing totally independent from the big chopper show. A small gathering of bikes and a swapmeet throughout the day...... followed by a party throughout the night!
Good food, lots of boozing and falling over, a traditional Finnish folk band and some crazy dancing. A highlight for me was witnessing the bikers and their mamas dancing to "Juke Box Jive" by The Rubettes at 4am.
Being stone cold sober, I had a couple of slightly scary moments and possibly the worst nights sleep I ever had on the clubhouses hard, wooden floor along with 15 or so other guys and no "Alcohol Pillow"
