🔥Josh Rundlett @rpmmoto! Built this badass Road Glide (I'll post the bike itself in the next post) for Hot Bike Tour 2017; bikes built for performance can be sexy too! 🔥
🙌Hands down my personal favorite bagger of the tour. I loved the build from last year too! You've got mad skills man 😈
I met Josh last year on the Hot Bike Tour, I found out he was from the Midwest and had also lived in Iowa 🌽(where I am from). This year we realized we had both worked at the same Harley dealership in Iowa, just at different times and under different management. We even knew quite a few of the same people who worked there! He left from Iowa to skip out to the west coast and I left from Iowa to skip out to the east coast. Total opposite sides of the country and yet we meet at Hot Bike, crazy how small this world is! 💛
This guy has a heart of gold and a bag of stories so good that before you know it all the ice in your drink has melted and the bar is closing!😂 🙌 I wanted to say thank you to Josh and the RPM crew for treating me like family and letting me hang out while Danny ran home to get his trailer. I had a blast at Hot Bike with you all and can't wait to do it again sometime! 💥By the way, I still want to get your story to share on how you started 🙌 I know it's gotta be a good one👊❤
We're reminiscing back to all the fun we were having this time last week at the GEICO® Motorcycle Hot Bike Tour... What was YOUR favorite part of the weekend?⠀
We hope everyone else had as great of a time as we did, and we'd like to thank you all for coming out! #GEICOhotbiketour#hotbiketour2017
@bxcustomdesigns displayed one of their badass fat tire baggers in our booth last week at #hotbiketour2017 Give them a follow! #trendsetters - - @bikers.choice @tuckerrockydistributing @twin.po @kuryakyn @vanceandhines @performancemachine @progressivesuspension @memphisshades
🔥Cheryl and I at #HotBikeTour2017 decked out in our @klockwerks gear with @brianthebobblehead 🙌 What a great time we had riding along with some of the builders and their rad bikes they built!
👊 There are some very talented and creative builders out there and they're young too! It's such an inspiration to go to this event and get the chance to talk to them about how they got to where they are today. Hard work, long hours, and major life changes, to name a few, all played roles in these people's journey and they still do. 🔥 You create the life you want to live (motorcycles or not). It will not always be easy. There will be sacrifices that must be made and there will be days you'll want to quit. In those moments remember why you started. Success does does not happen over night or in a year. Hell, it rarely happens in 5 years. It's about the journey, the people you meet, and the experiences you gain while pursuing your passion🔥👊 Better than looking back one day and asking yourself "what if I would have...".
The J&P Cycles pick for @hotbikemag Tour was the awesome bike of @majikmikesdesigns. Mike Rabideau was presented the @bell_powersports helmet custom painted by @skratchsgarage by Skratch himself. Thanks to Jeff White for the photos. #hotbiketour2017
Sometimes the @lefeverscycles crew models too because a pretty face is what the industry is all about. Huge shout out to @ahartless and @firstmfgco for supporting us and for leading the industry in all things leather.
This is what it's all about right here. Good times with good people! All smiles all week. Hotbike Tour brings together a ton of like minded people who like to ride and party.

Little did we know that bike would collect its first award later that day. Still in awe of how well the team did these past few days and couldn't be happier for Jon to get some overdue respect. @lefeverscycles @hotbikemag
Thank you @hotbikemag and @jeffgholt for the Editor's Choice award! It's a humbling experience and great time with everyone involved!
Now for the 14 hour ride back to the shop today @sidestreetcycles .
I am worn out from a long few weeks of thrashing to get this one done but it was all worth it. We got to meet and hangout with some of the best in the industry this weekend on the #hotbiketour . We made some new friends and met a lot of good people. The bike had some issues with the charging system and left me on the side of the road twice so we missed the first few days but we still had a blast. Thank you @jeffgholt and @hotbikemag for the invite and thank you to all that helped out and put up with me the whole way. @ruby_rider @mchurricane13 @theogahole @liquidvisiongary @topnotchcustomsllc @blakemelton75 @certifiedokc_ @bassanixhaust #blueribboncycles#hotbiketour2017#strappedforcashracing#supportyourlocalmotorcycleshop
Props to @forevertwowheelsmaine for taking home the first Street Chopper Ring! I rode next to this bike long enough to know it's a solid build and looks tough as hell 💪🏼
