Anybody going to the Gilmore Museum show Sunday?

It's supposed to be 98 degress and raining, in which case I don't know if they will hold it, but I have reservations at a hotel in Kalamazoo and will be driving up (the RE is not sorted enough for a trip yet  :( )

The show was terrific.

Sadly, for several reasons, I didn't ride the Enfield up. I missed out on some incredible weather.

I did see one Enfield there. I don't know if it was anybody from here.

Many great bikes, but no Enfields of any type on display. I got some great pics of various bikes (including a georgeous Ariel Square Four). I will post some as soon as I can get them off the camera (I forgot to bring a USB cable with me).

There were a couple hundred visitor bikes there. Many many Harleys naturally, but Moto Guzzi's, vintage Triumphs, a trio of Kawasaki water buffalo's, and misc Japanese bikes including 2 FT500 and 2 VT500 Ascots, one of my favorites from the early 80's. There was also 1 Kawasaki W650.

I hope that we can get a couple Enfields up there next year to represent the marque.
