A gorgeous vintage display from the Mitzel Collection of Mandan, North Dakota. I loved these Japanese survivors at the show.
The excellent Motus all American Sport Tourer, built in Birmingham, Alabama. All that's separating me from it is thirty thousand bucks.
I thought I might like the Indian Scout but it was uncomfortable for me. I was surprised.
The Indian Dark Horse was sublime.
I was even more surprised I loved it.
The Vintage Chief is prettier but the Dark Horse would be easier to live with with no chrome or leather to worry about getting rusty or wet.
Nope, I like this one. I think I might go to Orlando this winter and rent one for some fun on Highway 17. Harley Davidson wasn't at the show at all.
Never thought I'd go for a cruiser! Back to regular programming.
Trust, but be on the safe side:
Not all motorcycles, these things are popular:

In the parking lot, a Honda 700...
...an old Moto Guzzi Eldorado 850:
Motorcycles everywhere at the Orange County Convention Center:
Outside there were demo rides, fully booked, inside there were bikes to look at and sit on, or not, depending:
I test rode a stationary automatic Honda 700. Well done but not my style.
The new BMW GS1200 designed low enough I could ride it. Hmm, this I like a lot.
Italian beauty under glass.
How my well worn Bonneville should look...if I never rode it!
Small Hondas of yesteryear and today:
Korean Hyosung catching up to Japan...
More from AIMExpo tomorrow.
