Thirty Ducatis and Stuart Parr at Art of the Italian Two Wheel

Last week, I organized a bike night with Stuart Parr to view his Art of the Italian Two Wheel exhibit at 285 Madison Avenue in Midtown NYC.

I stopped off at the Stuart Parr Collection this afternoon after lunch with the Elegran team to view the beautiful Italian collection: Art of the Italian Two Wheel on Madison Avenue and 40th Street in Midtown, to show my coworkers some stunning bevel-driven desmodromic Ducatis and classic MV Agustas.

Imola: Art of the Italian Two Wheel

Imola on Madison Avenue: Art of the Italian Two Wheel

 This was the bike that saved Ducati, and launched the company's presence and ultimate domination of the Superbike class, as well as the tradition that exists today of building racing motorcycles first, to then retrofit for the street.
 For details about "Art of the Italian Two Wheel" with a catalogue by Ian Falloon, check out my last post. This exhibit is going on now at 40th Street and Madison Avenue in New York City, though it's not open to the public yet.

NYPD Harley Davidson Road King and Electra Glide Motorcycles by Central Park

 I'm not a huge cruiser fan, nor much of a Harley aficionado, but these police-'hogs' (pardon the pun) looked pretty boss walking down 6th Avenue in Midtown today.  I know the city spent close to $3 million last year on Harley Davidson Road Kings and Electra Glides, and I guess they wanted a strong presence for NYU's graduation ceremony at Radio City Music Hall this morning.
