    European Motorcycle Day 9/10


    9am to 2pm today at Larz Anderson Museum in Brookline. Awesome event.

    European Motorcycle Day | Larz Anderson Auto Museum

    You see some really out-of-the-ordinary bikes both on display and in the parking lot. For example, Italian Military Moto Guzzis, Spanish trials bikes, etc. Several dealers have booths and you can tour the museum as part of it.

    Have a few things to do on my 1975 BMW R90/6. It is a very "garden variety" old bike but by displaying it I hope get feedback, like "where the hell the seat came from," why "one WP shock has an external valve but one does not," etc. Having a brake problem so if it isn't quickly solved riding the WR250R over.

    It was a nice turn out of bikes on a beautiful days. Those Vincents were OG cool.

    Did anyone cringe at the S1000RRs rev bombing as they were leaving in a pack? Leave that shit for Newbury!

    Yeah I was there for a few hours. Great turn out and lots of cool bikes. Three Vincent black shadows, those are cool. Someone was selling a brand new sxv450 dirtbike. One guy had a 50cc GP bike - 105lbs! My favorite was a Velocette 500 with clubmans.

    The supercar display inside was nice. Benz SLR AMG, Porsche Carerra GT, Jaguar XJ 220. Lot's of older milestone performance cars too.

    Great weather.

    I snapped a few pics, lemme see what I got.

    The three amigos on German rice, dumbasses. It felt like Ducati day though. I looked for the neglected crew.

    This is always a great event; I try to go every year, although this year I missed it due to travel.
    The Larz Anderson museum is cool in itself, and they have quite a few events through the season.
    The Festa Italia is also always a treat; I did make it to that this year.

    Put my R90/6 on display, to get feedback on the good/bad/ugly. Got some great info.

    Hmmm, wish I could help. I have no info on it, didn't take a pic as it looked like every other sxv I have seen. I think the seller was asking 6k. I couldn't understand how you own something like this since '06 and not use it...

    I was mostly kidding! Mostly... well, 100% kidding for $6k. Obviously I'm pretty new to MX, but I've never, ever seen one at a track or an event.
