The spirit of David Mann lives on!
This photo of David and Jacquie is from their wedding day. They got married at our annual motorcycle swap meet at the Ventura Fairgrounds. That was quite a party, and its an honor and privilege to help keep the tradition going in David’s memory. Thank you all for your support!
In the meantime we hope to see you all on October 15th at Exile Cycles “Rider Round Up At The Ranch”
