Brooklyn Invitational Custom Bike Show 2013

Brooklyn Invitational Custom Bike Show out riding today... Tigho NYDucati
Stumbled on the Brooklyn Invitational Custom Bike Show out riding today...
Brooklyn Invitational Custom Bike Show Tigho NYDucati Custom Classic Motorcycles 1
I was out riding with my girlfriend around Central Park, then out to Queens and down into Brooklyn, when we stumbled on several hundred rowdy bikers (see Harley guys burning rubber above).  We stopped, and besides the bikers, were hundreds of custom motorcycles, mostly of the chopper variety.
There weren't too many Italian bikes (I only spotted a few Ducatis and a Guzzi or two), but there were plenty of Harley Davidsons and Triumphs.

Some guys were excited; others a bit more subdued.

NYDucati goes to LIC

Tigho NYDucati: waterfront industrial park in Long Island City to take a break.   To our amazement, in the corner of the parking lot behind a twenty foot chain-link fence was a waterfront bar called Anabel Basin with incredible views of New York City. 
My girlfriend arms were hurting, as she's not too used to riding long distances, so we pulled up in the parking lot of some waterfront industrial park in Long Island City to take a break. 
To our amazement, in the corner of the parking lot behind a twenty foot chain-link fence was a waterfront bar called Anabel Basin with incredible views of New York City.

MV Agusta F4RR, F3 800 Triple, and a Brutale 800 in the Showroom at Rockwell Cycle


 I, for one, am pretty excited about the new line of Italian imports coming from Italy this year.  I don't think MV Agustas are quite as pretty as Ducatis, but they're comparable in performance, craftsmanship and of course the pricetag.  This 2013 MV Agusta F4RR retails for around $25,000, though a base F4 starts at around $20K.

Weird, Can Am 3 Wheel Scooter?

Ok, so this isn't a Ducati, but it was a bizarre bike.  I stumbled across this Dodge Prowler-style scooter chained to a lampost in Chinatown.  I couldn't find a make, so I'm not sure if it was custom scooter or just another weird bike out of China (of which there are tons in downtown NYC).

Major Mods on this Magnificent Monster















I'm not sure if this was for sale, or just in the shop at Rockwell Cycle, but this was one of the wildest monsters I've ever seen. No cans, just baffles, twin-headlights, custom painted chromo tank, aftermarket belt-covers, open clutch cover, custom guages and carbon fiber everywhere and  spoked, tubed rims.

This guy parks his Ducati Streetfighter next to the Armory, usually next to a bunch of pretty nice bikes and scooters.
