Winter is here, and that can only mean one thing for bikers – Show Season! Yep, the time of year when we get to hit the convention centers and drool over all those beautiful creations, get our own ideas, and meet the touring Celebrities. This past weekend our Director of Operations here at K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com), Kevin Plummer, attended a show in Ft. Wayne, Indiana and in addition to meeting many gifted artists that had created some beautiful bikes, he got to meet some of the Celebrities in attendance.
Former “American Chopper” Star Mikey Teutul was in the house showcasing his artwork and representing “Mikey Tuetal’s – Wolfgang Gallery” an Art Gallery opened by Tuetul in Montgomery, New York (Wolfgang Gallery and Store) Mikey Teutul from Orange County Choppers this weekend at Cyclefest in Fort Wayne. What most people may be surprised to know is very nice guy, he took the time to really listen to people. “Being a painter myself, I really liked several of his paintings he had on display with him.”
While at the show Plummer also got to meet Tommy Flannagan, better known as “Chibs” from the hit TV show on The FX Network – Sons of Anarchy. Being of big fan of the show, Kevin was thrilled to get to take some time to talk with him and found Tommy to be “a very nice and personable guy” and as well a giving person, “When I asked him to sign some items for a charity raffle I am involved with, he was more than happy to oblige.”
Winter doesn’t always afford a lot of riding time and promoters know this, so they try to bring together people in the motorcycling community at regional shows featuring the latest bikes, hot custom builds, and even some Celebrity meet and greets. The folks at K and G Cycles (www,kandgcycles.com) encourage you to head out to your area show, it will be much more fun than you thought.
