I am only about a third of the way through the bike show photos, but somewhere around here I also have an album of photos I shot at the Trev Deely motorcycle museum about a decade ago, if you guys want to see those, I can dig them up and post those too. Theres some REAL exotica in there, like one of Cal Rayburns XR750 road racers, an OK Supreme, some other really cool offbeat stuff. if you guys are interested, I will try to find that album and post some pics after I finish the bike show stuff.

crappy photo of a Vincent Black Prince. One thing you will notice when you look at a lot of Vincents, even the prettiest show bikes will have modifications that make them more practical and rideable. Almost all Vincent guys ride the hell out of their stuff, which is somewhat odd when you consider what they are worth, and how much they are targeted by thieves. My brother and I inherited one from our dad, we discussed it at length, and decided to sell it, because we were afraid to use it, we both felt we would constantly be worried about it getting ripped off, and figured it would make us reluctant to use it as intended, yet guys ride the hell out of them. Its funny how many you see with panniers and luggage boxes! :D

Heres a great example of what I was talking about above, a BEAUTIFULLY restored China Red one, with big honkin K&N filters sticking out.

Another great example, a black shadow with panniers, a luggage box, and a radar detector. Typical Vincent.
