16th Annual Gilmore Vintage (& Lots Not So Vintage) Bike Show

The Gilmore Museum is a very good car museum located near Richland, Michigan.  From time to time they hold large events and today (12 June 2011) happened to be the day for the vintage bike show.  So, I went to take a look, spend a few hours and take a few pix along the way.

Lots of people turned out for the event

Lots & Lots of people
Yes that is a GoldWing Trike,  but the two wheels are in front

A Rat bike

Conversion kit for a Snowmobile to whatever this is now

A naked GoldWing
Another Rat bike

Kindofa scooter thing

Well I saw them looking at it and thought it might be important
so I took a picture.

Ya know, I really don't know what or why

He wouldn't put the ape hangers up but you get the idea

Really pushing it to put this cross between an air-boat &
 a trike into a bike show
Did I mention lots of people

And all the people came on bikes

And all the bikes parked

And as I wandered through the rows I found them more
entertaining than the show bikes in a lot of ways

This is actually a wheel chair,  he told me he wasn't ready to give up
and go with a standard wheelchair quite yet
It wasn't a bad way to spend a few hours and I did get my patches from Tail of the Dragon sewn on my vest.  Also picked up a sticker that says "Cleverly Disguised As A Responsible Adult",  at this point I figure I can't hide the truth.
