ScooterBob Goes Vintage in Victoria

Every summer during riding season in Victoria there are vintage motorcycle shows.
ScooterBob and I went to check out Andy's  Classic ad vintage Motorcycle show & Swap meet.

Scooterbob made some acquaintences of some of the Farkle Garage Crew's vintage bikes, This belongs to Farkle Garage Host Steve Drane.

The bikes at the show span several decades.  Every brand, make and model.  Once a bike lover always a bike lover.  The bikes at this show are ridden by their owners and many have been restored and some still show the rusty patina of age.  
ScooterBob also met Comrade Chang, a vintage ural who belongs to Farkle Garage's other host Clive Brown.  

ScooterBob was itching to be beside this beautiful old Indian.  

Basking in the sun!
ScooterBob was admiring this beautiful old BSA

It was a great day in the sun checking out all the old bikes!  

Music to my ears!

ScooterBob arrived in Victoria in July, and summer has proven to be a busy time for me!  Work, teaching, vacation, and a more than a few computer challenges  which have all gotten in the way of blogging!

ScooterBob and I went to explore the art pianos that are positioned around Victoria, usually by the waterfront.  These pianos are part of an art project called the Colour of Music, they are painted by local artists, who are inspired to bring art to public places and for music lovers to enjoy.  After the summer season pianos are they are auctioned off.

ScooterBob and I, hit up a few of these beautiful pianos and caught a very touching moments.

We were even treated to a concert by one gentleman, who goes around to each art space piano to play them, and he said  "Each has it's own personality".  

The piano we found him at is his favourite!

It was such a great day to sit in the sun and soak up beautiful music from experts
 And not so experts.

It was amazing to see the joy the pianos brought to everyone who was playing, or strolling or rolling by.
