On Saturday Troubadour and I suited up, fueled up and headed to coffee on the bikes. We were thinking that maybe a group would ride to the Vintage Motorcycle Show at Cycle Parts Triumph in Eugene. Everyone had other ideas and/or rides planned so we decided to head home, change into comfy sunny day clothes and take the car to Eugene. We had other errands to do while there, so it was easier and more comfortable to take the car.
By the time we arrived it was almost 1:00 pm. There was a BBQ scheduled for noon and it seemed that once everyone was fed they left. There were still a few bikes on display.
My favorite was a 1946 Sunbeam S7 owned by our friend and mechanic extraordinaire Donn Tanner. If I remember right he said that he's owned it for the last 15 years. And no, he didn't trailer it down, Donn rides his collection.
Another nifty bike was the 1972 Honda CB350.
And a 1973 Honda CB500.
Troubadour between the two.
Here are a few pictures of the bikes that were still there.
Of course no trip to Cycle Parts would be complete without a peek at the new Triumphs on display. The new Daytona 675 blue and white color scheme caught my eye.
Of course if you prefer the 675R you can get it with red accents.
Those were all of the pictures we took at the show. Not many, but it was a good excuse to get out and enjoy the sun. From the shop we went to Cornbread Cafe for lunch, had a most excellent Eugenewich and fries, did some shopping and were home early evening. And it was cooler with a high of 86˚F (30˚C).
A great day in the Oregon sunshine.
