Remember that bully who used to kick sand in your face? He was there to remind you of your traumatic past at the Bradford Beach Brawl. The Race of Gentlemen (TROG) brought bullies on vintage and modern bikes to the shores of Lake Michigan for the first time in 100 years. Nothing pays tribute to the roots of motorcycle racing like high-siding a prewar bike into the sand.
We didn’t see many queens at the Run What Ya Brung drag race, but it was Harley-Davidson’s anniversary, and they were king! Later they took us down to Paradise City, that place, by the thing, where the lights are green and the bikes are pretty.
