It apparently wasn't as good as I thought! And reminiscing about it will only make me cry...you don't want to see a grown woman cry, do you? :)
So...let's move on to the first bike show of the season. Kev-Marv Productions is in its 16th year of hosting the Northeast Motorcycle Expo. http://www.kevmarv.com/
The first show was in Rhode Island on January 7/8. Last weekend, they held a show in Hartford; this coming weekend (January 28/29) will be in Boston. Several members of the cast of Son's of Anarchy will be appearing in Bean Town, so you know I will be there. Will get some good pics for ya.
Anyway, I went to the Rhode Island show on a Saturday afternoon with a few girlfriends. Had a couple cocktails, listened to some music and met some nice people. The star of the Rhode Island show was Jody Perewitz 'The Fastest Woman on Wheels."
Jody is one bad-ass chick that recently became the first woman ever to go over 200 mph on an American V-Twin at the Bonneville Salt Flats. I just did a snow angel in the Salt Flats...not the same thing but still cool? Salty.
Her bike and set-up is pretty rad. Sucky pic...sorry. New camera and I've lost my photographer...gotta practice.
Of course there were plenty of bikes...
And a few charitable organizations. This ride looks like it would be a good one...Mothers for Daughters is a non-profit riding to help find a cure for breast and ovarian cancer. It is a weekend event held each year in Vermont and has raised several of thousands of dollars for research.
Old school bikes are always a fave...
Along with the bikes and vendors was a moto-cross stunt show. It was pretty cool but I preferred the glass-eating circus freaks and the midget wrestling that they had last year.
And it's not a bike show without the beautiful Dinah Deville...is it? She is normally at all the New England Boston Biker booths and is really quite friendly. Stop by and say hello!
It's a small show, but there is plenty to see and do. Nice way to spend a winter afternoon.
I'm really looking forward to the Boston show this weekend...will keep you posted!
