It's about the love of old motorcycles, like-minded individuals having a good time together and enjoying bikes from the past.

In this gallery local photog Mike Luci captures the mood of Born Free 9 -- June 24 and 25 at Oak Canyon Ranch in Silverado, CA -- the variety of bikes and people, the dry dust and heat, and the sponsors who braved the entire weekend.

"Right from the entrance, you walked into what seemed like a sea of motorcycles and no matter where you went there was always something going on, from pro skateboarders skating on a half pipe to attendees having fun in rambunctious ways," Luci said. "Despite the heat, there were still tons of people who attended and enjoyed themselves in the moto-esque environment as they talked amongst one another and had a good time checking out all the unique motorcycles."
