Bikes on Beale

Every Wednesday starting around 5pm, motorcycles start cruisin’ in to take over Beale Street. It’s a *tradition* here in Memphis from the spring to fall seasons. This year it started on April 21st, lasting through October 6th. If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s that the bikes are all spit-shined. The bikers take pride in their babies. Heck, I’ll just show ya!

It will still relatively early (around 6:15pm)….it was only a matter of time before the invasion was in full force :p

I had a *ringside* seat (eating dessert of course!) when I snapped this shot

As I got tired of people-watching (after about an hour or so, but who’s counting?!), it was obvious more bikers had rolled in with their smooth rides.

This is as I’m walking toward 2nd Street:

Oooh, nice and shiny
I wanna ride…that red one!

Bikes were lined up, but I was told I ain’t seen nothin’ yet
Apparently they fill-up the next block–between 3rd & 4th Streets–too!

When I got to the 2nd Street barricade, I turned around to capture the other side of the street:

I was the welcoming commitee for those 3 bikers that just strolled in
Good luck finding a space on this block, fellas!

I nicknamed this one, the “Evel Knievel” bike

Good traditions should never ever die. ‘Nuff said.
