Saw the finish in Tacoma, awesome!

Went to Tacoma on Sunday to see these guys a girls cross the finish line. This was awesome! Most of the riders were covered in grease and oil. The bikes are dripping and puking oil but they still run after almost a century.
I know it takes a lot of effort to keep them running but still, they run

Some of the bikes are beautifully restored and others are mechanically working but have a nice old patina with lots of character.

The following bikes were some of my favorites:















And I saw this at the HD dealership where they stopped before the finish line at the Le May museum:





I thought my 1981 BMW airhead was old but after seeing all these antiques my old Beemer feels like a modern machine and my 2011 R1200RT is like something from the future! It looks like I have found myself a new hobby for once the kids are out of college.(if there's any money left after that )
