Realities Ride & Rally

I was bicycling back home from playing several spirited games of sand volleyball at Colorado State University when dozens of chrome-laden motorcycles caught my eye as they sat pretty on Mountain Avenue. I had no idea there was going to be a motorcycle show in downtown Fort Collins, and yet here were more motorcycles I’ve ever seen in one place. Not quite Sturgis, mind you, but more than respectable for our mid-sized town. Of course I stopped to wander around and admire the bikes.

Here are some photos.
