Too many hipsters, sure. Too much new construction, you bet! Overcrowded streets and dangerous riding conditions, you got it! But you have to hand to Williamsburg, Brooklyn for one thing: the sheer variety of motorcycles that you get to check out, up close and personal.
On any given day, you run the chance of walking past (or hear zoom by) almost every type of bike imaginable. The other day we nabbed this photo op, capturing a ‘nest’ of motorcycles, from a few eras, all parked in a row. You have the ever-present Ducati, the staple Honda CB350 and the less popular (but gaining) Kawasaki KZ650.
While we have become rather complacent about the plethora of bikes around here, it just takes a quick ride outside the city limits to realize that most areas focus on one bike style, or another. Mostly, you run into the cruiser crowd, mile upon mile of similar looking scoots, with the extravagant flourishes all washing together.
