Bikes, Blues & BBQ - Details

Last week Northwest Arkansas hosted a major motorcycle rally.  Over 200,000 visitors descend on this region for four days.  Scroll down a couple of posts if you want to see some the bikes that were in town.  Today I am featuring the details.
The gas tank has always been where the signature piece of artwork appears on the bike.  However, in recent years bikes have been covered in art from fender to fender.  Just scroll down a couple of posts to see what I mean.  I prefer the simpler graphics to the outrageous works that some display.  For me, you can have too much of a good thing.

 On the other hand, I never get tired of looking at a sparkling engine.  I have never ridden a motorcycle but I do admire the machinery.
If you prefer not to have the full wind-in-the-face ride, then adding an accessory like this will keep your hair straight and the bugs out of your teeth.

Like I said, some bikes had artwork from fender to fender.

In recent years the Indian motorcycle company has been reborn and this fender is an example of their vintage offering.  It is a beautiful and very impressive machine. The Vintage Indian is nostalgic from front to back, complete with leather saddle bags and fringe.

Even the headgear does not escape the artistic touch.  Well, that's wraps up another year of Bikes, Blues & BBQ.  I'm already looking forward to next year.  Have a blessed week.


  1. I have never ridden a motorcycle and don't foresee starting but I do admire the beauty of many of them. The chromed shiny engines are beautiful and some of the art and paint work is outstanding.

  2. I love to look at cherried out bikes. These are awesome as was the ones from your other post. How fun.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  3. Cool shots, driller!
