We spent last weekend on the other coast, checking out vintage motorcycles in Dania Beach, Florida. Obviously, this event was not for me — it was for my motorcycle-loving husband, who was pretty much a kid in a candy store the entire time. For me, it was a beautiful day spent with friends outside, and I can’t complain about that!
I was shocked at the number of bikes there — it was incredible! I was kind of terrified that husband and his friend were going to spend 5 minutes looking at every single one and we would be there forever, but there were plenty of fun things to see even if you have no idea what you are looking at half the time.
There was a motorcycle blinged out with all kinds of custom ‘Merica stuff, including an Eagle giving everyone the finger with his talon. I mean, where else can you see that?
Or these adorable dogs dressed in full motorcycle gear?
Or a motorcycle that had been ridden from Argentina to Alaska? Or a motorcycle turned into a custom tuk-tuk? We saw that too.
There were also lots of cool vintage bikes and parts, and I had fun photographing those too.
The best part though, by far, was lunch. We ate at a place called Bull Market in nearby Fort Lauderdale, and I had chicken and biscuits. Soooo good.
I got to spend some much-needed time hanging out with my friend Liz, and her parents (who live in Parkland) were the perfect hosts, feeding us dinner and breakfast the next morning. It was a fun and relaxing weekend, spending time in a new place, and letting Husband get his motorcycle fix!
