Last week was First Thursday, it was nice to see so many other bikes. March was just my Ural and a Harley. Of course, there was snow every where then too. I estimate there was close to a thousand people at the peak for April. A very amazing number that is usually reserved for warmer months, but the unseasonably warm weather we’ve been having encouraged people to get out early.
I had a great time chatting with old friends and new friends. I’m slightly bummed I will miss May and June, but then again I’ll be in the midst of a great ride, so I guess it’s ok. lol.
Here are some of my favorite motorcycles from this month:
Flying Merkel frame, but not the engine. Someone mentioned the engine was a from a Yamaha.
This little Yamaha YSR. You don’t get the full effect until the photo below.
I think this one does even better below. It is a tiny bike!
A nice sidecar. I just missed the owner by a few minutes.
My friend Rick and his FJ1200 sidecar. Here is a video of me riding in it last year.
An original Honda Cub. Love the Gerbing heated jacket hanging from it. The Cub doesn’t have the charging system to run the coat, so he uses batteries. Smart.
The wind protection on the forks of this DL were interesting to me. The highway pegs look comfy.
A Cadillac scooter??
Love the paint job on this bike. The American and Italian flags are integrated very well.
The rider’s helmet is also very well done.
The writing on the rear fairing is nice too.
These look too fun. Only two showed up this month. Normally there is a whole pack of them sounding like a swarm of angry bees.
I don’t ever remember seeing a Laverda, so I had to take a photo.
I caught the owner later, he had the matching coat.
