dealer installed accessories bike show

I entered my 06D at the Fort Huachuca AZ Custom bike show. Sponsored event from AAFES for Military families and Soldiers. Unfortunately, I didn't win but it was fun for my kids.

One gripe, it was supposed to be a custom bike show and not "dealer accessories bike show". Im not bragging on the custom items that i modified, designed, made, etc. but i honestly think its way better than a leather pouch mod, or a customized license plate, or expensive seat that some other dude installed it for you. A couple of Victory baggers won.

All that matters; we had fun with great Americans, awesome food, and showed our passion in motorcycles.

Victory baggers won? Apparently the judges are blind. Victory baggers should never win any contest even if they are the only entries.

A VISION WON? A Vision should never win anything but worst bike ever produced. This contest was rigged or mental defectives where in charge.

Too bad the judges have no clue that it was a custom bike show. It is a better idea to let the riders submit votes for the winners. They usually know what has been customized! The only votes for the Victory would come from the owner!

The judge has a ton of patches on his leather vest, no wonder.

A Vision didn't win. That's a Cross Country which is a pretty decent bike.

Would that be a Zach, Cory or Arlen Ness custom license plate holder? Depending on which I can see how one might get upset.
