Brooklyn Food, Beer & Bikes

I'm not sure if this should be posted here or in Life After Fire, Travel Information or Fire and Money but because it's an annual occurrence I think everyone should know about it.

On Sunday I attended a motorcycle show / event dedicated to vintage motorcycles. The bikes were all real world rideable devices with outstanding character and appeal to devotees of genuine motorcycles.

There was a stage with live entertainment. An excellent buffet including a roast pig was provided at no charge, beer was served for free, parking was free and the admission charge for the event was ZERO!

I think that qualifies as LBYM.

I thought of that but I figured the NY license plates would be a good clue and I know the forum members love a good puzzle.

Remember that there are many Brooklyns in the world but, only one Bronx.

Thanks for the photos...and yeah, it's definitely a LBYM event.

I love looking at old bikes and umm, hmmm...I would love the free food and brews even better. Unfortunately I'm in TX...

Glad you had a great time!
