We will be taking one of our bikes to the Handbuilt show in Austin TX in a about a week. What are some other things to do or see there, bike related, historical, fun? I know about the moto gp. but that's about it.
Thanks in advance!

Shit load of cool things to do in Austin. Just get with a local that is showing with you and ask. Bars, Music (live music center of Texas and probably the World), and so many things "Texas". I sometimes wish I was closer as I have made Austin once and a three day weekend is just not enough for all the sights.

I will probably start a new thread for all the pics of the show that I got. Did anyone else here go? I got back home at 3am so it's going to be a while before I get all the pics uploaded and sorted. It was an inspiring show though. There were some completely amazing bikes there as well as a few that were honestly quite hideous IMHO.

Haha! I've not seem much internet coverage of the show yet. But here is a link to a photographer's site that has much better pics than me, probably because he was using a proper camera rather than a phone

Amazing. So many nice motorcycles. The difference between what I found on the interweb of bikes that people thought were significant to what was actually there.
Goes to show that the general public has no taste.

That one made me scratch my head in wonder too. That tube is to relocate the air cleaner. Why? I have no idea, and I see no actual reason for that modification. It seems like it would be more in the way than useful.

I was down there on my Triumph I got to check out your bike in person, some folks are good at taking flattering photos of rolling piles of fuck, but your bike was as legit as they come. Without a doubt my favorite followed by the bare metal knuck with the mechanical throttle.


Thanks for pointing out the whole harmonic vibration shit I think I understand what you mean now.
