The 2021 Long Distance motorcycle riding season is coming to a chilly close. And goodness, some of us West Coast riders are even crankin’ up our heated gear in these low 60 degree F evenings with a wind chill of 30 (at least that’s what it feels like to us SoCal rider’s).
It’s been a very tough 2 years since COVID-19 reared its ugly head! Most regional LD and multi-day rallies were cancelled. Individual rides such as Saddle Sores, Bun Burners, BBGs, 50CCs, 100CCCs, UCC, B2Bs, 48++ and any combination of Extreme rides continued and this year we saw the Iron Butt Rally contested! It’s time to have a little non-competitive fun!!
The 20th annual Bite the Wieenie Ride to Eat
November 20, 2021
Pinks Hot Dogs
709 N. La Brea Ave., Los Angeles, CA 9003
Bite the Wieenie is not a membership based event. It is open to riders of all idiosyncrasies.
Make this a major motorcycle weekend by attending the IMS Outdoor Show followed by Bite the Wieenie. I encourage all riders on the West Coast and beyond to attend the Progressive International Motorcycle Show Outdoors, Southern California <https://ims.tixonlinenow.com/imssocal/> event Saturday then after it closes, ride ~20 miles to Pink’s Hot Dog to BITE THE WIEENIE!
Pinks Hot Dog
Pink’s is an honest-to-goodness Hollywood icon, sub-cultural gathering spot and past IBR bonus location. The establishment now knows we are coming! Whether you’re a twerking Mike Kneebone, a demu Lisa Landry, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney or Elvis, everyone waits in line. And the 1-hour+ wait at midnight for a $3.45* chili dog is a unique Hollywood experience.
Jacked up pickups, bouncing lowriders, Porsches, pimpmobiles, junkers and LD motorcycle rigs all share a miniscule parking lot while stretch limos and Hummers circle the block while their contents wait in the 1-hour+ line.
Besides us LDRiders with ATGATT, it would not be unusual to see unique body piercing, facial tattoos, the best body modifications that money can buy, spikes and dreadlocks, prom dresses, grunge street wear and barefoot surfers standing in line.
What kind of person rides 1,000 – 1,500 miles in 24 hours for a hot dog?? We typically get 100+ riders from Vancouver, WA, OR, ID, UT, CO, NV, AZ, NV, NM, TX and FL and the Carolinas.
1. Because that’s when the beautiful people appear and ohhhh are we sooooo beautiful!!!
2. Even on a Saturday between 4 and 8 PM LA freeways are parking lots!! Riding into Pink’s between 9-10 PM just might avoid Car-ma-geddon!
3. And it’s a perfect Saddlesore Ride (1,000 miles in 24-hours) for WA, ID, MT, WY, SD, CO, OK, NM, TX. Leave before midnight Friday evening, arrive at Pink’s within 24-hours later to get your witness signatures. There will be dozens of witnesses on hand.
