There was a custom bike show yesterday in the old city of Oudewater, organized by one of the color clubs. I am not into chrome and certainly not into MC's, but it was nearby, so I went there to have a look on the way to an appointment.
Atmosphere was really nice, surprisingly little police (only 2 officers as far as I've seen), good food and very well organized. The bikes were not to my taste, as expected. Did like the orange Harley, the trike and the rat bikes though. Here are the photo's:

The Virago has a new headlight. Bought it at a local flee market for 2,- euros, I think it looks great.
The bike gave us some troubles today, so we did a lot of work with only minor progress, but progress = progress and we had a great time, helped by the brilliant weather.
The way back on the CB was incredible. On one hand I wish I could get a video chip implanted in my eyes to share the sheer beauty of the reflections of the setting sun on the front fender and headlight, on the other hand I am to selfish and keep the experience to myself. Absolutely fabulous.
The BMW is a blast to ride, the Virago really impressive, but the CB is just so hugely pleasant to ride. You can accelerate out of a corner and throw it into the next while the exhaust is screaming for more and when you've had enough you can just cruise home. I love it.

Well, that was the end of my video camera :)
Anybody who got a spare GoPro Hero left for me or is feeling the need to sponsor one, contact me :P
All joking aside. I paid 20,- euros for it two years ago or so, so I can't really be sad that it got destroyed.
