In addition to built bikes, there was this immaculate Kawasaki 900. For an exhibit called “The Riders Show” this bike looked like it was straight out of the showroom.
A sweet little Honda cafe (for sale) with this unique headlight.
Scooters were there, too. While I’m not much into scooters, I did appreciate this mod’s light cluster and hood ornament.
The best part of the show was finally getting to ride with my dad who, along with my mom, is in town visiting. Dad rode the CB750, I rode the GB500 to the show. Dad’s normal ride is a 1963 Harley Davidson Sportster XLH, so a cushy seat, smooth engine and shifting on the left are all a little different than the usual.
All-in-all a great one-day show with bands, beer and bikes. It leaves me feeling the motorcycle culture of the Pacific Northwest is thriving and poised for growth. All things I’m sure Triumph of Seattle is happy to help cultivate.
I very much enjoyed The Riders Show, seeing the bikes,meeting your friends and riding your CB 750!
