This past Saturday, I went to see the Venice Vintage Motorcycle Club Rally, which was fantastic. Unfortunately, I was only able to spend about an hour there, so I didn’t have a chance to see as much as I would have wanted to. With that in mind, I also didn’t get as many photos as usual, so I apologize in advance. Hopefully one of the big motorcycle news sites will have shots up from one of their professional photographers for you to peruse. But until then, here are some of my favorite bikes from the whopping hour I was able to attend. And even in the brief time I was there, it was clear to me that this is something that should be attended every year. You’re surrounded by fun, passionate riders and fantastic bikes – there was a much bigger variety than the endless series of cafe racers I was expecting. Beer from Angel City Brewery doesn’t hurt, either.
Very surreal to see a bike I’ve featured in the past just sitting in the parking, not even in the show itself:
The same BMW I saw back at the Petersen Museum Cruise-In last week, as well as the Paul Smart of (I think) a Bike-urious reader:
This last photo sums it all up, I feel. The show might have been about vintage bikes, but it brought all kinds of motorcycle enthusiasts out (including me and my K12R). Hope to see you there next year!
