Modern Classics Ride-In. In a Word, it Was Mega!

“Ride ‘Em, Don’t Hide ‘Em.” That’s the mantra espoused by our friends at Motorcycle Classics magazine. It’s an ethos we fully subscribe to, as witnessed by our 2nd Annual Modern Classics Ride-In here at Martin Moto last Saturday.

Perfect early autumn weather (low 80s, high overcast and a light breeze), delicious nosh from Skippack’s Italian Deli, and high-energy music attracted  throngs of old bike fans. Oh yeah, did we mention that there were over a hundred bikes – all ridden in from as far away as Pittsburgh and North Jersey. No trailer queens here!  The event attracted European bikes, Japanese bikes, bikes from the 50s through today, customs, choppers, cafes, and more.  It would be pretty hard to describe in words the energy and enthusiasm in our parking area but maybe this selection of pictures can help. If you missed this, you missed a lot! Next up – the 5th Annual Modern Classics Show on March 7th, 2015. And you can count on yet another Modern Classics Ride in late in August of 2015. Enjoy!
