As expected...

...it was 92 degrees, there was nothing to piece together story-wise, and the "media lunch pass" covered only a sandwich. If you wanted anything else -- like a beverage -- it cost extra.

Not, however, a total loss. I did meet some friends there, and saw a few things I'll be sharing in the next couple of entries.

But first...

An interesting motorcycle, power by a seven-cylinder aircraft engine. The cylinders are arranged radially around the crankshaft. I don't think this bike runs, and it's just as well. I wouldn't ride it, you can bet...



Anyone could ride a bamboo bicycle. If they wanted to. The wheel rims are wood as well, and the "handlebars" are steer horns...



More photos anon....

I wish the motorcycle ran. Cool rotary engine. It does look a little tricky to handle. Good looking work.

I'd just like to sit on the cool cycle and have a photographer take my picture!

That is a pretty clever person who designed that bicycle, too!

As I meant to say, without the glaring missing word:
The motorcycle reminds me of E.J. Potter, but his bikes were ugly and went like stink.

I see the bambike has no pedals, perhaps so some scofflaw can't make off with it.

There. Proofread this time :-)

Looks like someone had some fun designing these. I like the horn handlebars :)
