BIKE NIGHT 101
“ONE OF THE BEST PARTS OF OWNING A MOTORCYCLE IS MEETING AND CREATING A NETWORK OF OTHER LIKE-MINDED GUYS AND GALS.”
One of the best parts of owning a motorcycle is meeting and creating a network of other like-minded guys and gals. One of the best places to meet up with folks of similar interests is the bike night. A bike night is where riders show off their bikes either at a restaurant, bar, or other designated location usually once a week or month. Bike nights don’t have to be that elaborate, but some bike nights can include stunt riders, bike shows, bikini contests, giveaways, and so much more. The most common ones are at the local watering hole with anywhere from five to 100 bikes showing up regularly.
I attended several weeks at a local Long Beach, California, restaurant organized by Jim Conley for about six months before they unexpectedly closed their door. It was right down the street from my house and had a great atmosphere and group of people. Sometimes it was big; sometimes it was smaller. Either way it was a great chance to meet several readers face to face as well as find a few bikes to feature in this magazine!
I’d thought I’d take this opportunity to share some of the photos of the good folks I met along the way.
