Blind Bob the Alligator Wins Broken Spoke Burnout Contest
File this in the “Things You See at Bike Week” category. Now, while seeing a guy in an alligator suit at the Broken Spoke during Bike Week is a peculiar enough sight, seeing him compete in the burnout contest later that night took things to the next level. After they got his buddy’s motorcycle strapped down, Bob was led to the bike where he carefully felt his way up from the back fender to the controls. Soon he was working those controls like a boss, hand-shifting his way to a big, smoky burnout. Bob didn’t stop ’till the back tire blew, endearing himself to the crowd on his way to winning the burnout contest. No small feat considering Bob is blind. Rock on, Bob!
