Today, was the 4th Annual Vintage Motorcycle Day at Motoprimo. I’ve missed the last couple due to conflicts, so it was nice to be able to attend. The flier above mentions pre-1987 bikes only. I took the oldest one I have, my 2001 SV650. It’s a bit of a long walk otherwise! Maybe someday I’ll buy an older bike, but I haven’t seen one that I have a strong desire to buy. I guess I’ll have to keep my SV until it become vintage!
When I arrived, there weren’t many bikes on display yet.
It seemed like there was just as many modern machines as vintage.
Honda had a very strong presence.
I’ve seen this one in a couple other shows. I like the color matched details.
Like the caliper and hub.
There were a couple BMWs on display as well.
But the Honda’s seemed to be winning in both the numbers and looks department.
This one had gathered some attention as well. A clean café racer.
It looks very cool sitting in the shade waiting to go for a ride.
I kept coming back to the details on the Hondas.
Not vintage, but a good looking bike. I’d like to take it for a ride.
On the way back to my SV, I saw a WR250R. This one has the utilitarian Acerbis tank and it looked like happy trails racks and soft bags. I’ve been riding my WR all week; so fun.
It was a good time if not a bit small. There was about 15 bikes on display by the time I had to leave with another two dozen in the lot. More were coming as I left. Small shows like this face stiff competition with so many bikes each month at Dulono’s, but I’m glad they do it. I enjoyed chatting with some friends, and looking at the motorcycles.
