2009 GASTOWN Motorcycle Show & Shine
Laura and I cleaned up the Harley and rode across town to the 2009 Gastown Motorcycle Show & Shine. There must have been a thousand or more motorcycles there. Jim Byrnes was making some mighty fine music. Trev Deeley had a number of vintage motorcyles from their Exhibit. The Hell's Angels and Jesters parked a ways down the road from the Christian Gospel Motorcyclists. In amongst the big Harley Davidsons' the Triumphs, Ducatti's, Suzuki's, Hondas and Kawazaki's mingled. The Azzikr choppers were all the rage. Tricycles came in all shapes and sizes. The Vespers and Aprillias poked perky heads out here and there. The Yamaha kids motorcycle instruction and ride was the piece de resistance. The kids would fall off or crash and be back on the motorcycles without a second thought. Showed the adults how easy it really was.
