This will be the 3rd annual Motorado Classic Motorcycle Show. Eldorado is a few miles outside of Santa Fe, NM. It's a small, one-day show (10 AM - 3 PM), but there are some nice bikes that show up.

One of the cool things about the show is the collection of old dirt bikes. Maico, Bultaco, Penton - sure brings back memories. I'm sticking my R50/2 in the show - I don't anticipate winning anything at all, but it's a fun way to talk to a lot of like-minded folks. If you're in the area, come on by!

A Few Photos From the Show

It was a beautiful day here in New Mexico - in the upper 70's and sunny. The show was great, with somewhere between 50 and 100 bikes. I've posted a few photos at

Quite a number of really cool bikes: Ariel Square Four, Vincent Black Shadow, a twin-engined Indian drag bike, and of course a nice compliment of 60/2, R69S, and R50/2. But my favorites are the old dirt bikes from my youth and older: a couple of CZ's, Penton, Matchless, a Triumph trials bike from the 50's or 60's, a couple of Rickmans, a 250cc Husky, and my favorite favorite, a Yamaha TT 500. The fact that they are still in existence is amazing, considering how much we beat the stuffing out of them back in the day.

All in all, a very fine way to spend the day.
