A week ago, after learning that I’d be down-state this weekend, Al suggested that we take our bikes to the Gibraltar Trade Center for the “Blessing of the Bikes” event. I’d never heard of this before, but in a nutshell, bikers gather, eat hot dogs, and a priest blesses the bikes, people look at all the other bikes, then you leave.
I had never seen so many motorcycles in one place. The event announcer said that 1129 motorcycles were in attendance. From what I could tell, almost all of them were Harley Davidsons. I looked at about half of the motorcycles and counted just 4 Triumphs, including mine. I was undoubtedly in the minority.
The weather was nice, the hot dogs were good, and the bikes were interesting. Good fun all around.
