Deadbeat Retreat 2018 Event Coverage

The 2018 Deadbeat Retreat is officially a wrap! This year was crazy, the new venue, the bands, bike games, cops, all rolled into 24 hours after months of planning.

This year we took over the Iron Tails Saloon and the adjacent 16 acre fairgrounds across the street. With camping and bike games taking place in the fairgrounds and bands, vendors and stunt shows over at the bar. The new place was huge and has so much room to grow. Let’s just hope we are welcome back for next year.

Cooling off in the lake.

The Chopper show this year took place in a lighted barn that turned out to be perfect for photos. The 69 Speed Boys layed down some ink in the barn and kept the music going well into the night. We’re told things got a little crazy in the barn at night but you had to be there to get those details….like we’ve said before if you know you know.

Check out some photos of the Chopper Show below:

Things got weird inside the barn at night, I’m not sure what’s going on here.

New this year we added a stunt show from the Deadbeat Stunt Division. Here’s Mark, TJ, and Jay letting it rip:

This guys stoked!

The Acton Maine Fairgrounds typically host tractor pulls, the covered roof and stadium seating made for the perfect location for this years bike games.

Check out the slow race, keg push, and infamous kickstart race:

Timmy takes this shit serious, reigning undefeated kickstart champ!

Nate Haskins ended up taking home Peoples Choice for best Chopper. He didn’t disappoint the crowd and banged some gears inside for everyone.
