Thanks to Adsinger for meeting me and hustling me through the registration process - the registration folks were up to their collective elbows in walk-ins and did a great job processing everyone expediently. First time for me to ever actually "show" a bike.

Saw a few fellow ADV Riders I know, saw a couple of other folks that I've met at other events. The R80 ST got me there and back without any drama, and even got some looks from passers-by at the show.

All in all a pretty good day.
I was checking that 80ST and the 80GS that was there. I want one of those so bad. What wonderfule bikes.

Was a good show although someone said attendance was down from last year, partly due to the AHRMA races at Telladega and also just plain ole price of gas. Still great and I'll be there next year again. This is so much better than looking at he HD cookie cutter billet jobs.

The vintage shows at Knoxville and also somewhere in Carolina probably drew some folks in other directions, too. Gas prices are definitely on the minds of attendees - that came out I at least one conversation I had with a gentleman that is used to doing lots of rallies and shows, but is looking at the realities of fuel costs these days. (As I am, too)

Riding Into History

Hey, that's my Laverda! Thanks to bpeckm for posting. I had my 750SFC, BMW /5 cafe racer . and R100GSPD there.

Thanks also to all ADVRiders who attended. Entries were a bit down in numbers, but not quality. Best in Show was a pre-war HRD Vincent single, Best Competition Bike a 1913 Indian board track racer, Chairman's Choice a Honda RC45, and Preservation Award went to an unrestored, regularly ridden Pierce 4-cylinder (1911 I think). We had a record attendance gate, auction off two bikes, and raised a lot oof money for the Buddy Check 12 breast cancer awareness charity. Unlike the Legends shpw out west, tis is a wholly volunteer effort with about a dozen folks providing the bulk of the effort.

I'm hard at work editing photos and will be filing reports to American Roadbike and Classic Bike Guide (UK)).

Also hoping to get a small slide show up online by tomoorw. I'll post the url as soon as I finish up.

Mark May 16, 2009 for our big tenth anniversary show, featuring American motorcycles.

Alan, thanks for all the hard work you and the rest of the staff do for this charity event. The number of Staff shirts roaming around to help with every little detail throughout the entire day shows the care and effort level that goes into a show of this stature. I don't think anyone that approached a Staff member with a question got referred onward to someone "over there", but got the answer or assistance on the spot.

I noticed your bikes & loved them, BTW

That BMW cafe.....

Adsinger... if that was your BMW cafe next to the Laverda, up by the big tower.... drool....I went back two times, took lots of pictures with my 35mm and a few digitals. What an awesome bike: I told my son that that BMW was the one I would take home, out of the whole show. Yowza!

And I couldn't agree more with mark1305 about what a terrific job everybody did. We were in, parked, and into the show in no time... Well organized, well managed, well done! Be back next year.

Adsinger's BMW?

Is this yours.....I was quite interested in the way you "deleted" the rear subframe, mount the shocks directly to the main frame, and cross-braced. Very cool, very nicely done.

Yep, that's it. My partner and I spent nearly three years building it. I aimed for a "broad-shoulder, small-waist" look so we removed the sub-frame entirely. We fabbed up a tubular seat support for the modd'ed Duc pattern seat, braced the main frame and designed a set of shocks that Works made to order to fit. We pretty much made or altered every piece of the bike I don't think there is a single bolt-on part on it and the only stock piece is swingarm pivot bolt.

It's on a SWB /5 frame. Wheels are by Morris, Grimeca and Brembo discs, shaved K-bike front end (custom internals), etc., etc. Motor is a late 1000cc, twin plugged, S cam, p&p, big valves, Mikunis and custom exhaust. Electrics are located in an alloy box where the airbox once resided, battery is mat gel in another box horizontal under the 5-speed trans. It makes 87 HP, weighs 397 lbs and goes quite well.

We finished it in 2006 and have won at Barber Vintage Weekend and Riding Into History. This year we just displayed it without judging, just to let folks enjoy it as we do. I've done rebuilds and restorations before, but this was the first bike I designed and we built from scratch.

Also, thanks for all the kind words about our show. We're glad you enjoyed it, tell your buddies, and come on over next year.

alan.

It was only on the second time around, and the second look at your bike, that I saw the tank paint job detail.... you have a very talented painter to have those ever-so-faint flames that shimmer in the back ground, and a very nicely done roundel, as well.

No photo of the tank could do it justice...

For those who have not seen the bike, this photo is "borrowed" from Adsinger's website... BMW fans everywhere are drooling...
