Photo's from a vintage bike gathering.

Postby popotwindy » Fri Jun 05, 2015 12:15 am



Saw a bunch of really cool old bikes this past weekend at an event called the Rockers Reunion. Just a lot of fun seeing all the restored bikes and wonderfully creative altered bikes.
The only two older Goldwings were these two. Note the brake lights on each - one is housed in a grenade the other in some kind of really large bullet.

A few more fun ones:

Looks like there was plenty to see. Some interesting items there.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

Regarding the modified Goldwing: I never will understand why someone would take a very comfortably riding bike and make them into a torture chamber. Those guys spend a tidy sum making their once nice bikes into something from the dark ages that are totally un-functional and not very good to look at either other than gawking at their stupendously stupid things that they did to them. I see a lot of Harley riders doing the same thing, not that their bikes are the most comfortable to start with, but then they start raking the front forks to a ridiculous angle making them all but impossible to steer or turn, putting on the tiniest of seats, removing all the fenders so any water gets thrown directly on the rider just to name a few of the totally useless mods.
