Riding Into History

The Annual Riding Into History is a superb event held in May in St. Augustine, Florida featuring each year about 300 to 400 antique, vintage, race and custom bikes from all over America and Europe. Faithful reader and photographer great John Adams was on location and shot hundreds of pictures. I picked some close-ups showing the incredible details of these machines. Models and years at bottom. Enjoy. (If interested, John sells his art at Adams Views…)

    Great pix Cyril – this is a fantastic venue and show. Not your typical parking lot deal.

    John does a beautiful job of capturing the essence of Riding Into History. Those of us who volunteer at RIH really try to make it not only a great charity event (benefiting Wounded Warrior Project) but one of the premier vintage motorcycle shows in America. If you haven’t been, we invite you to join us next May 19.

    The old bikes are so much more visually interesting than most built today. Their design stimulates the senses and gives testimony to thoughtful craftmanship instead of mass production driven by the bottom line alone. Riding into History and other like shows , give us a chance to digress to a time when a man took pride in his craft . They preserve the history of the industry and the growth of motorcycle enthusiasm in America and around the world. Thanks to those who organize and display for the rest of us.

    I can see by the lines in his neck. He really is a turkey. Or a gobbler as the feminist boys would say an Easy Rider, no wonder he had a co star by the name of Hopper. LOL.
