CB750 as performance art.

Pretty cool piece of performance art featuring two CB750s from ArtPrize, a world-famous art competition in its fifth year in Grand Rapids, MI. ArtPrize is a phenomenon in itself, and has really transformed the conversation on what a midsize (200,000 or so in a metro of 1,000,000) Midwest city can be. The CBs are icing on the cake for a bike guy like me.

I'm sorry but I'd kick that guy in the nuts for doing that. If that is art then all the jap bike bashing and destruction at the Harley ralleys must be what???

Just like two buck deer with their horns locked together. I didn't have a problem with the video until I saw the shot of a drone hovering just above.. Those things are dorking up every event I attend lately. There was a drone at the vintage bike show in rural Iowa last week.

Some things don't need a blinking light plastic helicopter present to film from above. I'm tired of seeing at least one at any event that draws more than 20 people.

Why all the negativity ?

Everyone who thinks it was bike abuse should go out and rescue an old Honda today.

I just think it's weird. But most modern art is.
