Well, we had a great day in Brookline on Sunday. Thanks to our customers and anyone else who stopped by to chat. It was perfect weather and a huge turnout!

Ducatis, Vincents, BMW’s; the selection was better than ever and the parking lot was full of beautiful machines too.

My only complaint is that the classes for judging are a little lopsided and the British contingent was crammed into a corner making it hard for people to get good pictures of the bikes. Maybe we can make some suggestions.

Yes we took home a trophy for our nickel bike and I was so busy I didn’t get a chance to take any photos. (I hate lugging a camera and tripod)

If you were there, thanks for coming. If not then plan to attend next year , we’ll be there!

Ok, the title says it all.

The museum is in Brookline Massachusettts (website : mot.org) and it is a must attend event if you have any interest in the best motorcycles you’ve ever wanted to see!

Ducati, Laverda, Benelli, Bultaco, MV, Triumph, BSA, Vincent,Norton ; all the great marques attend and it is not to be missed.

We will attend with a couple of bikes; my 750 hi pipe and the “Nickel Bike” that has been under construction for what seems to be years. Well, actually it has been years now that I think of it. This bike has a custom nickel plated frame, alloy box section swing arm, Brembo brakes,      OH YES……

In any event, check out the mot.org website and you can see this is a world class event and even gets attended by the “beautiful people”.( Not that I care but it lends an aura of legitimacy.)

Be there or be square
