Last weekend was the annual OVM - Oregon Vintage Motorcycle Show and Swap Meet. This years marque was Suzuki. Since this is held within a few blocks of our house we walked rather than rode to the show.
Although it didn't rain while we were there, ominous clouds threatened from the Southwest throughout the day.
I've heard opinions to the contrary since Sunday, but I didn't feel that this show was as big as it was in years past. Here are some highlights from the swap meet, the show, and the parking lot.
THE SWAP MEET
The Hodaka riding group were set up in the swap meet area, though the bikes were not for sale.

THE PARKING LOT
All in all it was a good show and always worth attending. There is nothing wrong with looking at shiny bikes on a cloudy Spring afternoon.
