Bobcaygeon Bikefest

Just got back from Bobcaygeon Bikefest. For those of you in Ontario its going to end up like Dover but with a smaller crowd. Lots of people/bikes of course, I would say in the many hundreds of bikes but I didn't walk that many streets. I only saw three BMWs there. Two of them were K1600s

Mine and a beautiful bagger, hopefully it belongs to a forum member

There were actually more Aprilias there than BMWs.. WTH.

Within a few minutes of parking I had several guys walk up and start asking questions, mostly about how I liked the bike but also a few mechanical questions. No sooner did I finish answering those questions than another guy walks up.. repeat, repeat. I didn't leave the bike for about 25 minutes as people kept asking about it, I guess that is what happens when you park a big k-bike in a sea of ultra glides/classics/softails/etc..

Anyhow, beautiful day, great weather, great riding.

Was that one yours or you mean GTL? I walked all of the streets there as my wife is unfortunately addicted to shopping in Bobcaygeon. The bike in the picture was I believe past the bridge area. Mine was up on the main drag, I typically just drive to the middle and stuff the bike into a spot.
