View from the inside of Ken Hull's Moto Shack and Lounge in Boalsburg, Pennsylvania. Took this a couple weeks ago at the first Piston and Pints event of the 2013 season. The pictures below will give you an idea of the event. Pictures were made on May 2nd and May 16th.
If you haven't ventured into Boalsburg on the first and third Thursday of the month to join the Piston and Pints crowd you should at least think about it.
Without further ado I'll share some of the pictures I made.
Just one of many vintage machines that appear at Piston and Pints. I could covet one of these if it had disc brakes.
Dave Dix and his BMW GS. Great bike. He had to leave early. I think he was heading to Antarctica or something like that. Those BMW riders...
Mike Mohney, faculty member in Penn State Ag Science's landscape contracting program, surprised me by showing up on a cool, two-stroke, Yamaha cafe racer. Those tires are fantastic.
Camera optics are funny. I think. Either that or Ken is really tiny or that fellow is really big.
I think it's the lens...
Robert eats salad and rides a Harley. I should have told him it doesn't fit the image HD works so hard to develop. Salad seems more of a Vespa thing.
Paul Ruby on May 2, 2013. He bought the Ducati jacket from another rider attending the event. Ken's Moto Shack and Lounge building makes a good backdrop for a portrait. Thinking I need to start making portraits of everyone who attends. A new photo project perhaps...
Well look, that's me...
The Piston and Pints Library.
A Honda CB cafe racer conversion.
Ken Hull took time from his busy day to demonstrate the correct way to apply condiments to a hot dog.
Paul D. Ruby, Ducati, BMW and Vespa rider, Ferrari owner, and recent acquirer of a Nikon D800. That's why he's smiling.
More than one Vespa at Piston and Pints on May 16. Still rare though.
