1. Cars and Cigars
2. Girls, Girls, Girls

To me, there’s nothing more awesome than attending car and bike shows on a nice, sunny, weekend afternoon. And amongst the fabricated metal, chrome, rubber, and jiggling silicone, you’ll instantly smell the intoxicating fragrance of cigar smoke, wafting through the sweet summer air. I’ll basically find any excuse to smoke a cigar, and these shows are just a terrific place to fire up the stogies while oogling at the bad rides and the even badder ladies. (Okay, there’s no such word as badder, so artistic license definitely applies here.)

I admit that I don’t ride a bike, but I have an incredible fascination for motorcycles. When engineering meets art, I start to grunt like Tim Allen, and the best thing about being at a show is that you’re among a throng of uncontrollable grunters. The many customized Harleys are amazing to behold, but I am equally blown away by some of the Japanese bikes that have mimicked the American bad boy look. And those Indians, both new and old, are just stunning pieces of fine-tuned machinery. I’ll spend several hours walking, looking ooing, ahing, and of course, smoking. When you come across other BOTL’s who are making the same primordial sounds as you, and instant bonding takes place and you know you’re amongst kindred spirits.

Vintage cars are also incredible works of art and the gazillions of man-hours that go into creating these beauties is mind-boggling. The pride that the car owners feel as they display their super-charged beasts is so evident. They love nothing more than watching onlookers stick their heads under the open hood to marvel at the workmanship. I always have to be careful while leaning in because if my cigar’s ash happens to flicker into the engine or the front seat, I’ll no doubt have my ass kicked and removed several miles from the premises. One thing I’ve learned is that if you want to make good friends with these gearheads, say nice things about their four-wheeled babies and offer them up a premium stick of tobacco. We’re talking friendship at first sight.

 

The third piece of the equation has to do with duel carbs of a different persuasion. There’s no other way of saying it, but then chicks at these shows are stinkin’ hot, hot, hot! The younger one’s get so creative when approaching the fine art of covering their naughty bits. Tank tops, cut off shorts and high-heeled shoes are such a great combination, don’t you think? And at the bike shows, it’s lots of leather and lace, no matter how high the mercury climbs. Hot chicks and cool rides is all a man can ask for – okay, cold beer, a grilled cheeseburger, and a humidor full of handrolled island goodness makes the list a tad more complete.
