Born Free

A relatively new motorcycle event that has grown in popularity year after year is the Born Free Motorcycle show in Silverado, California. Unfortunately the event was cancelled last year due to Covid-19, which meant the 2021 show was always going to be a big one.
This was actually the twelfth year of the show founded by two motorcycle enthusiasts, Mike Davis and Grant Peterson, with a simply goal for Born Free, to showcase custom built bikes by some of the best bike builders from around the globe.
The event is held at the Oak Canyon Ranch, about an hour drive South of Los Angles, and considering the ranch is located within the Santa Monica Mountains, it makes for a perfect riding destination. And if you wanted your bike within the showgrounds, you had to pre buy a ‘grass pass’ for your motorcycle otherwise you had to park in the gravel parking lot. But you had to be quick, because both days of the show, the grass bike passes were sold out.
