|Dixon 2013||Up One Level|
Gene Underwood and John Dutra again hosted the Hummer Hospitality Tent at Dixon. They brought three pop-up tents for the Hummer Display, and another one for the Mobile Kitchen.
The Hummer contingent was strong this year with Dana Miller's freshly finished beautiful Super 10, Dean Hummer's latest road/show worthy Hummer, Gene Underwood's usual collection of nice original un-restoreds, as well as one restoration, and his soon-to-be-finished custom bobber. Ted Staub brought his gorgeous Pacer, and John Dutra brought his 1961 Super 10.
Besides Hummers, we sprinkled in a few other lightweights for intrigue. Gene Underwood's newly acquired BSA Bantam, Rob Osborne's Aermacchi, Otto Hoffmann's Lambretta and Dan Derby's Shortster. The Shortster actually belongs to his wife, Sheila (Hummer) Derby, who used it as a pit bike when she used to follow her dad Dean around during his racing days.
An honorable mention should go out to Rich Singer and wife Jenny who brought his 1949 to the show Saturday afternoon. Rich had just gone through Hip replacement surgery three weeks prior to the show and still managed with the help of Jenny to load the bike and make the one hundred mile journey to the show, cane and all!
