Bikes, Blues, and BBQ

Every year, over 100,000 bikers descend on Northwest Arkansas for 4-Day event known as Bikes, Blues, and BBQ.  Ground zero for the event is on Dickson Street, in Fayetteville, AR.  However bikers can be found in hotels, restaurants, and dealerships for 25 miles in every direction from the headquarters location.  Rogers, AR is about 20 miles north of Fayetteville, and has several large motorcycle dealerships, including Pig Trail Harley-Davidson.  Needless to say, this is the Mother Ship for the local gathering.  I spent a couple of hours there on Thursday capturing some images of these amazing machines.  They come in all shapes and sizes.

There are bikes that have served our country and been restored to their former glory.  If only we could do the same for some of those who served.

There were bikes with an understated elegance and power.  The top one just might be my favorite of all.

There were bikes that seemed to be ready to set the world on fire.

Of course there were those for which there is NO such thing as too much bling.  I'll post a few more photos next week, so stay tuned.  One last thing, just like the bikes, the riders come in all shapes and sizes.

Ruby Tuesday 2

Baseball isn't just for "The Boys of Summer".  We have Fall Ball here in Northwest Arkansas.  The grandson loves the game and for a few weeks in September and October he gets to extend his season.  This is also his first year with a real pitcher.  This past spring was his final season batting against a machine.  From now on it will be "live arm" only.  I just thought the batting helmet screamed Ruby Tuesday.

Ruby Tuesday

Some mornings a bowl of whole grain cereal and skim milk may be the healthiest alternative for your breakfast, but it may not be exactly what you really want to start your day.  On the way to work you pass by the best breakfast in town...really, it is.

Breakfast here is going to require some extra time spent at the fitness center after the work day is complete.  Was it worth it?  You betcha!
