Really Nice Stuff....

Post by Aussie Dave » Wed May 17, 2017 7:00 am

One Sunday in May 2017.....a nice Breakfast, then ride out to the showgrounds at Canungra in Queensland Aus. :D .....It's called the "Ray Owen Bike Show & Swap Meet" and is one of the best shows in town....

Oh yeah.......nice stuff always at this bike show........including my solitary GT out in the bike parking area :lol:

There were too many excellent world class resto's to photograph (and somebody always gets in the way :x ) but here is a small cross-section of the brilliant work these guys do with old stuff......

Cheers my friends......though we may be one eyed KTM owners, we can still look at the other stuff...... ;)

Reminds me of just how far we have come since those "old days".....and makes me wonder if the BMW "future" concept I've seen in a video clip could actually become reality...especially if the shapely rider comes with the bike :lol:
