One of the largest motorcycle gatherings on west coast (called Street Vibrations) was in town this past week. While I was downtown idling on my scooter at a stoplight, I was invited to participate in some street racing. Of course I said, "Heck yeah!" Little did they know my 49cc scooter could go from 0 to 35 m.p.h. in 15 minutes! Yet I had no problems smoking the guy and his "old woman" in a friendly game of racing ;-)
In all seriousness, I wish I had a good camera on me to capture what I had seen throughout the city. Thousands of bikes parked on streets that had been blocked off all over downtown. The sound of motorcycle engines rumbling everywhere, and riders cruising on their iron horses passing me by. It was neat to be around and see the events celebrating Street Vibrations throughout the city. And the weather couldn't have been more perfect.
