I had posted a few shots from a recent meeting of motorbikers already https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/12-post-your-photos/270473-machinery-1000-vikings.html

Here are 3 B&W conversions of "heavy stuff".

the b/w treatment really works great on these Norbert, especially the Harley. Are there a lot of them over there ?

Both very good pic. The Triumph Rocket 111...all 2300cc and three cylinders of it, two headlights, chrome in abundance, huge radiator...has got lot's of everything and your camera emphasized that very well.

Thank you for your comment, Bob! Yes, Harleys are quite popular (in spit of the price tag!!), but more the "classic" models, not so much the V-Rod. That's at least my impression.

Appreciate your comment! Well, the Rocket is really impressive when you are standing next to it! The rider told me that it is surprisingly easy to ride once its moving.

Thanks, but a little to much bling on a bike for my liking and certainly to much work to keep it looking like that.
