International Motorcycle Show in Greenville, SC

Today I attended the Cycle World International Motorcycle Show in Greenville, SC. It had what you would expect at an event like, girls on motorcycles, more motorcycles, a motorcycle stunt show, and more motorcycles. Vendors were present selling everything from ear plugs to funerals for bikers! The lighting conditions were not set up for photographers so please excuse the harsh flash photos. Here are some photos from the show.

On the way home I decided to check out Jones Gap State Park and managed to drive into a forest fire. Here are a couple of shots of the fire. I was not permitted to go to the state park or get any closer to the fire.

I am starting to get pumped about the upcoming season. It is the end of February and spring will be arriving soon. Kickstand Lodge (a nearby motorcycle campground) opens for camping on March 6. That may be a little early for me, but at least if a nice weekend occurs it will be available. Keep checking back! You never know when something worth reporting may happen this time of year!!!!

February Blues

Sorry, no photos for this entry. That is mainly because I have not done any riding this month. I'm not likely to any time soon. I am taking two classes this winter at our local community college. One is a photography class that meets on Saturdays. Hopefully that means the photos from this year's riding season will be better than last year's.

Next Sunday I will be attending the International Motorcycle Show in Greenville, South Carolina. I will take photos and post them as soon as I can during the week. Check back!
