As it so happened life got in the way of Solomon's Castle (next weekend for sure!) but we did spend a little time at the event. Some photo's if your interested follow.
|3 or 4 different streets just loaded with bikes.|
Z-hills, as the local call it, has a lovely park which the bikes were allowed to drive through. Music was provided by the Dive Bar Stalkers right off of main street itself. The band lived up to it's name.
What I enjoyed was the diversity of the bikes and the creativity on many of the paint jobs. One guy was doing pin stripping, and yes, I considered it for the Burgie but with some damaged plastics it be a waste of time and money.

Which brings me to the next photo. While walking about I came across a restored with all original parts 1974 Triumph Bonneville 750. It only had 6600 miles on it. The same amount of mile that were on my Burgie originally. What impressed me was the amount of time and love that went into that bike...and the story that bike must have. Out of all the various bikes there, only two really brought a smile to my face....the Bonneville was one. A true classic.
The other thing that caught my eye was truly a sight to behold.
You gotta admit...that is pretty cool.
