Here's a great bike show if you live near eastern PA and are looking for something to do next Friday & Saturday, March 6th & 7th. www.modernclassicsbikeshow.com/?ss_sourc...-02-28T22%3A31%3A54Z

This is a top flight indoor show, not just a random gathering of bikes. The staff of Martin Motorsports literally spend the better part of a year pulling everything together for these. I'll be there and will try to take some interesting pics. Not sure if there will be any KZ's in the lineup this year, but there's always plenty of other interesting bikes on hand.

That looks like a Top-Notch bike show, wish I could be there to see it. I am moving back to PA very soon from So-Cal. Have already purchased a home there. That is where I grew up and first got into Kawasaki motorcycles, 500 & 750 triples. The sound, smell, and speed of those bikes can never be forgotten . Mabey I'll find one when I get back.

Martin Moto always have great events. I prefer Modern Classics Ride In, usually held in September when the weather is much warmer. Lots of vintage bikes.

Kofla - I recognize your bike from a past Martin Moto Ride In. Well done! It's amazing to see what kind of bikes show up at the Ride In.
Do you have any more pics to post? I'm thinking that a lot of people on this site would really appreciate them. Could be a BOTM or BOTY contender, if it hasn't been already.

Here are two "teaser" pics taken yesterday at the Modern Classics show. A lot of beautiful, and in some cases very rare, bikes on display. I'll try to post more pics when I have a chance.

Thanks. I wish it was my bike. I took this picture at one of their Modern Classics Ride-In six years ago. I've seen this bike also at the Gathering of the Norton's at Washington Crossing Bridge. This is the kind of look I am looking for my 1978 Kawasaki 1000 LTD when is finished.
