The 3 day event would include long joy rides, flat track racing, Sons of Anarchy-esque convoy expeditions, an unconventional drag race, and a key barn where us “outlaws” can conceal and reminisce about the day’s tomfoolery.Vincent Prat along with Paul d’Orleans were the organizers of Wheels and Waves California and lots of the motorcycle industry’s trendsetters and influencers have been in attendance that afternoon for example Jamie Robinson from MotoGeo, Roland Sands from RSD, as well as Steve Caballero, a world famous pro skater, just to name a few. Brands such as Alpinestar and a slew of all-star modification passengers were current as well, such as Deus ex Machina, Revival Cycles, Brat Style, and Suicide Machine Company, just to name a few.The occasion was tightly packed with all kinds of motorcycle “anti-racing.” Hurry day one was at the Santa Maria Raceway, where I would spend my sexy afternoon running across the dirt track, photographing and watching the Vintage and Super Hooligan horizontal track races. Drones above, the finish line banner dancing in the arid 105 degree weather. One by one, motorcycles would trickle on the tacky hot tarmac. One hundred feet apart, a decommissioned train on which appeared to be a railroad going to nowhere, became a shady refuge from the heat lamp above. However, more racers arrived, proudly piloting their custom creations, waiting for when the checkered flag could fall for them.
