Tropical Tattoo Chopper Time Show 2014 Biketoberfest Edition

You’ve seen us here before and you’re going to see us here again. Tropical Tattoo “Chopper Time” show in Daytona is without a doubt my favorite bike show to attend. And again this year, it didn’t disappoint us!

I’m not really big on bike shows – mainly because I really don’t care if someone else likes my bike or not, and I have never understood why you would roll your bike out for some random dude to “judge.” I mean it’s your bike, why would you care what someone else thinks of it? That being said, I love the Tropical Tattoo show that Willie and his crew put on because to me it’s more of a hangout for like-minded folks who love motorcycles than a “show.” There is absolutely no pretentiousness and no special treatment for “celebrity” builders, just a place for people to bring out bad ass machines, no matter if they were built in a professional shop or a garage at home. The whole thing is held together by the MC and all around good human Roadside Marty, whose sharp wit keeps show goers and builders alike on their toes. Almost every bike in the parking lot had our attention at some point but we narrowed it down to a handful, we came away inspired and hope you do too.

About the Author:

Patrick Garvin began his stint with J&P Cycles at the start of 2008 after doing some installs for us at Daytona and Sturgis for two years. Currently, Patrick splits his time between the eCommerce team and purchasing, finding new and exciting products for our website and catalog. When he’s not at his desk, he’s zigzagging across the country with J&P’s event crew. Patrick has an obsession with going fast on just about anything, a trait he shares with his 6-year-old son Race. You can usually find both of them wrenching in the garage or ripping through the fields on dirt bikes. Emma, his beautiful wife of 7-plus years, puts up with his antics and keeps his head screwed on because he certainly wouldn’t be able to find it without her.
