Default Pictures from "Magic Bike" Harley Rally at Rüdesheim am Rhein in Germany

The event was just okay. I really wouldn't recommend making it a trip in the future unless they get some better vendors, bands, people who actually their bike to the event, and more space. This event was sort of family oriented, it seems. Not awefull, but it was a bit dull overall compared to events I've been to in the U.S. I hear there are far better events coming up throughout Europe, and I'm looking forward to them!

I found myself in the parade on accident. I just happened to be arriving and went from one end of the strip to the other looking for a parking spot. Didn't see one, so I turned around and got stopped by some old people crossing the strip. Then all of a sudden a police van passed me followed by U.S. police bikes, then more bike and I picked up I was in the parade, so I just joined in. That was pretty cool. My question is, why in the world do old people find it necessary to cross a parade path en masse??

So right now the only thing "custom" on my bike is the U.S. license plate. That turned a lot of heads (I was the only U.S. plated bike there) and started a couple of conversations. I sat at a table for a while next to my bike and it was funny watching people trying to figure out where the plate was from. There were a few U.S. military guys there (who have USA plates, but in the European style), too.

I got to meet up with HDRidersUSA.com member 'mrsbumblebee'. Regine and her husband were great! They bought me dinner, beer, and clued me in on some other biker events in Germany! Thanks, Regine!!! Worst part was that you could tell a TON of people trailered their bike or chopper in. There where a ton of trailers 10-20 km up the road, and I saw a bunch of people unloading their bikes. I followed two identical Heritage Softails from their trailer 15 km away from the event to the event after we three got gas. When they parked and got off their bike, they definently played like they had just ridden for hours... stretching, bending, and all that fakery. Sad but true.

Hopefully the bike pictures I attached work. I might put up some video of the stunt guy on YouTube eventually, but we've all seen that before so nothing fancy there. It was sweet to see a guy do burnouts and wheelies on a Street Bob though! I climbed a damn tree just to be able to see!

Just some more shots. I have a billion photos (not a billion) but it takes too frickin' long to upload them all and I'm tired and I want to have sex and go to bed. Unfortunately, the sex part is not going to happen. Bygones...
