I went to an antique bike show in Phoenix today, and wanted to share some of the pics:
This Trump was absolutely beautiful


I remember when this Ducati was cutting-edge, exotic machinery


a couple of Indians




this Knuckle was a rider, not a show bike


BSA and BMW



On my way there, I saw a nice red Notchback on I-10 east that got off on the I-17 north ramp, I think it had Illinois plates. Was that anyone on here?

Thank you, and yes that was a great thread. I had never heard of that guy, but that was a great story. In another life, I could have been just like him.

Those and the Ducati's are my favs. Can someone answer a question for me though? I've heard the term "knucklehead" before when referring to Harley's, but what does that mean? Does it have to do with the shape of the head, or what?

Yep the rocker covers supposedly look like a set of knuckles or a shovel for example. Panhead, Flathead, Knucklehead and Shovelhead...etc

Also previously posted, the story of my most memorable trip on that bike ... still my favorite of the five motorcycles I have owned: http://www.mcinnisusa.com/p...c/MotorcycleTrip.pdf. This story was also published, slightly edited, in two parts in the May and June 2010 editions of the newsletter of the BMW Club of Southern California.

My goodness Mike, I thought you had been around.

Obviously not. All the clues are there. The bike is an Indian and the guy in the trailer is from Cleveland...............
