View Full Version : Bikers' wedding
12th of March 2006 (Sun), 04:28
Greetings all. Here is a couple of shots I thought you may be interested in from a wedding I did yesterday. It was a bikers' wedding with Harleys from here to the horizon. The first shot is the bride arriving on the back of a mate's Harley, and the second is the bride and groom leaving for a lap of the main with their mates before heading to the reception at biker HQ. Not the greatest quality as they were taken on the run. Enjoy.

Hiya Pixi. And if you look real close, you'll see that not only is HE smoking, but his bride also has a small roll-your-own in her fingers. Classy !!

i haven't seen anything like that yet... must have been very amusing and entertaining as you were shooting the wedding...

Okay. Thanks folks for the feedback. That last shot of the B&G heading off on their Harley - I used as the title page for their album. Have a look at how it turned out.

Can't help myself. Here's the B&G with their entourage doing a lap of the main drag on their way to the reception at the OMCG club house.

Now I'm really on a roll. Some more shots to entertain you.

the biker community is pretty cool. my next door neighbors are bikers and we go to allot of thier parties..they are tons of fun..drinking, live bands lots of harly's and some of the friendliest people I have ever met. They are all older (50's) and I have never seen people party harder.. always a good time when were together.

Zacker. Big difference here between 'biker' and 'bikie'. These guys are bikies and members of one of our 'leading' OMCG. I, on the other hand, am a biker. I consider myself a gentleman of the road. I ride a BMW R1150RT Sports Tourer. I'm over 50 and belong to the biggest motor cycle club in the world (primarily Australian) - the Ulysses Club. Wanna know more? Have a look at www.ulysses.org.au/

yeah, here your a biker or a biker. mostly though, if your a biker, you rid a harley and if your a motorcycle rider you ride anything else...lol These guys arent a gang, per se' just a bunch of guys (and girls) who enjoy the lifestyle and riding, they ride to all the big biker events here in the states, Daytona and Strugis, they take summer long cruises that last anywhere from two weeks to two months and they are the most down to earth and honest (they say whats on thier minds, no secrets) people that I have ever ment. I dont ride but these people are no strangers to me, I have grown up around the biker type as my best friends older brothers rode and hung out with some very scarey dudes..and two of my cousins were in Biker (bikie) gangs in the mid to late 70's.
Yeah, I definetly am not shy of the biker type. Perhaps one day I might be lucky enough to by one..but then again, im selling off stuff just to buy a 30D....lol

fotoz, i just got back from your site... sounds cool. is there a chapter here in the states yet? there are tones of older riders here ( my brother is 52 and still rides) i bet it would take off.
26th of March 2006 (Sun), 05:40
Zacker. I think there is a chapter that has started up in the States, or there are moves to do so. I think Canada has one as has Norway or somewhere over there. If you go back to the site you should be able to find info there somewhere. Meanwhile, show this shot of my old ride to your biker friends. Just got rid of it (a 1972 Honda 750/4) to update - and I mean UPDATE to a current model BMW R1150RT Sports Tourer. Chalk and cheese.

a bit unorthodox, but looks like a fun time! as for the photos, the last one of the bride and groom is great.
26th of March 2006 (Sun), 07:22
lol.... nice 750.. reminds me of the old... I think it was the Honda CB? CB 750... ?
My first two wheel machine was a 1976 (i believe) Honda Z-50, then it was an XL-75 and a Suzuki RM-125 and then I went up to a Yamaha YZ-250, one of the first years they came out with the mono-rear shock.. I had allot of fun flying through the trails and dirt tracks around my house.
Im liking the new Buells

Craig. That's what it is mate - a 1972 K2 CB750/4.
Attached is the CURRENT ride.

Ahhhhh the chrome really makes these photos look even better!!! Nice shots fotoz :) im lovin the bike in these shots, now i want to do a bikies wedding hahahaha!!
27th of March 2006 (Mon), 06:16
Nice FotOZ... Big difference huh? Lol.. I knew it looked like the old CB.. its funny because my father almost bought us a CB but then decided street bikes were too dangerous. Funny, he said the same thing when I bought My Pontiac Fiero.. "Its too small, it dangerous!"
29th of March 2006 (Wed), 00:53
LOL.. those are great.. You really get a feel for there personality. And everybody knows that bikers are completely nice, polite people..... Now, i'm remembering a few years ago when I dated a biker... Ofcourse he was a great guy, but my dad and brother-in-law didn't know that.. I was living in San Diego and was all of twenty...They heard the harley roar up and were already annoyed at the noise and unimpressed with the bike and then there's this bald, leather clad biker at the front door..it was one of those 'classic' moments out of time. I still laugh when I think about there faces.

Hey Sari. Wasn't life funny way back then. I've had a dig through my archives and come up with these 2 old Polaroid photos that I scanned and corrected through PS. First is me on an old 1965(?) Honda Dream. 305cc twin, absolutely gutless bit of gear that wouldn't pull the skin off a custard. Only paid $100 for it in 1972 (this shot was taken in 1972 - I was 21) and I kept it for 12 months before selling it for $100. No loss but had a lotta fun. The other shot is my wife at the same time, when we were dating. She was 18. What a honey, and still is. We still ride together on the new BMW. Intercom headsets to keep us together - still. Ain't love grand? Thirty-two years and still going.
