Smile Cafe racers and scoot show in Durham NC pics ......

I wish that I knew more about these cafe racers and scoots. It was a real good show and 98% of them where ridin there. No trailer queens.





Cheers

I love cafe's... A Thruxton would fit into my stable really well, as would a Commando, or a Royal Enfield...although the RE's aren't very powerful or fast. It would still be fun!

Hopefully, next year I'll be able to get an old Goldwing to cafe out...




Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

What a blast of a place, SAS. Thanks for sharing.

I would have gone up and down that street a dozen times!!!!!!

Everybody should plan to come next year, as it will probably be a bigger event. Thanks for sharing the photos SAS! The battery in my digital crapped out that day, but I did have a film camera with me, so if I ever get off my ass and get the film developed I'll post some more photos.

For SAS and anyone else in the Raleigh/Durham area, every Sunday at the James Joyce Pub in Durham (on the same street the show was on) there is a "biker breakfast", that was started by the local Ton Up guys (same group who put on the bike show above). All types of bikes and riders are welcome. Great breakfasts, lots of motorcycle talk, and people usually head out for rides afterwards (no beer untl noon on Sunday in NC though). If you are in the area, drop by! It usually starts up around 9-9:30. Shoot me a PM if you would like more info or directions.
