Helps to check your own posts....we rode up Saturday just for the show. We saw your bike! (Of course).

The Friday ride was all booked up by the time I found out about the show (new to the West Coast).

Hell any MV would be welcome to show since they're kind of rare compared to most bikes. I could have shown my 94 Elefant 900 that I rode down, I suppose, though it is a rider not a museum piece.

Classic MV 750S that won an award.

Tesi 3D, one bike I've always loved the idea of but never saw in person before. I took lots of pictures of the components.

THE actual Fastest Indian bike, not a replica. Not sure how he acquired it, I couldn't understand them on the mic when on stage. I actually have video of them firing it up.

The 1974 MV 750s pictured above won 2nd place in Italian category. The owner is very nice guy, lives in Central Cali. He spent heavy coin to go through the engine and transmission. I was riding behind him on a Quail Ride and the 750s sounded FANTASTIC! I was just happy to hang back and listen to that mill!

This year's show was much better organized and the weather helped to make it a better event than from previous year. To make things even better, Bimota was represented by 4 bikes as opposed to my single entry last year.
