Thank you, guys.

Best in show: Mattias (Le beef)

Just a few hours ago I drove to Dusseldorf airport and delivered Rico for his flight back home.
Since our event last Saturday I had no time to rest or to write posts. It will take 2-3 more days until I am able to select my own photos or see what others released already.
But one thing I want to state now, and if you could see me now, you would see that Iam over -whelmed by the good feelings I have for everybody who supported us and for all who have been with us. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. It was one of the best days in my life.

Rico sends big hugs too.

Here is the complete list of the winners:

Best car: Gjis (Flake Kings) Rookie of the year: Ricky (Wannabe Choppers)
Best Chopper: Peer

Beste Chopper of show

Peer from the Netherlands won with his XS 650! Good job!

And yes: Rico loved Peers t-shirt!

D-Day, first post!

Man, it was a blast!! There will be way more posts in the next few days with a lot of pics. For now a small film by Dieter about our chopper ride from the Netherlands to Kaldenkirchen. We lost Jessey and his Triumph on the way. His bike was picked up and he joined the party a bit later. Thanks to everyone! Supporters, Visitors, Rico, everyone!!

ch ch ch ch changes!

With just a few days to go whe're a bit surprised to hear Maurice van den Tillaard/ the Flying Dutchman does not want to take part anymore in the Garage Maniacs foto expo. So that's kind of sad news.
But have we got something in return!
Floris Velthuis is a very well known photographer for magazines like the Dutch "Bigtwin" and "Back Street Heroes" from the UK. Floris did a lot of photoshoots of members of the Garage Maniacs and is very happy to take part with some of these pics! Hell Yeah!!

Now there is a little handicap; time! We really hope to get the prints done in time for the expo. So don't be surprised when there are some empty spots at the start. We really, really hope we can pull this off.
Check the man himself!

wind up

Well, we are getting close. Lots of work and many last minute problems have to be fixed. So I do not have time for extensive posting . But may I ask your attention for some general informations?

  • Our event is a family event and not a hardcore outlaw biker meeting. If this is what you are expecting, please stay away. If you are looking for a relaxed and mellow meeting and want to have fun with some friends- you are welcome.

  • The venue is not somewhere out in the fields, it is right in that little town and people are living in the streets where we having the party. They respect us, please respect them and their property too.

  • The actual event starts on Saturday at 2pm. Dont come early, we need the time for setting up everything.

  • For the people who are around on Friday we have a little party at the QL. Nothing spectacular, just a pub night. Of course there will be some nice wakeboard and swimming action at the "Blaue Lagune" too. It is your choice.

  • Most of the questions about the where and what are easy to answer if you check out the hospitality blog.

  • If you have problems on the way to us, let us know. We will not pick you up if you are 300km away. But if a gremlin bugs you 50km from Nettetal f.e., we will find a way to help. As announced we have the bike hospital at the venue. And we will have a trailer or van available too. Please store this phone number in your mobile: +49 177 3317695

And please take care, guys.

Wind up, its coming.

5 more spaces at the Lagune

Just got the information from the "Blaue Lagune" that a group of bicycle tourists cancelled their reservation. So there are 5 more spaces for tents.
Hurry up. This is the place to be.


For all those who never heard about and the few who forgot: Greaseheadquarters is back!
Sik`s blog has been abandoned for a while. Now he is posting again.
Please follow his work and listen what the man says. He is a ruler!

Wannabe Choppers

After the pleasure to anounce the attending of three show stoppers of master builders, it is a, at least, even big joy to present a "young gun". Ricky is just 20 years old, but known as a bike builder for 3 years already.
Check out all about his work.
