Indian Larry’s, Brooklyn NYC
Fall weather is without a doubt the best time of the year to ride a motorcycle; feeling the crisp cool air as you breeze through traffic with a hoard of other bikers is a feeling indescribable through words and needs to be felt. The camaraderie in one aspect of the motorcycle scene rarely spoken about but this is what brings enthusiasts together for a cruise or for a parts-install session. This is what the motorcycle and car scene have in common but is more native to motorcycle crews due to the shear vulnerability of the man on the bike. Metal over flesh vs. flesh over metal is an idea which demands respect.
The location was Union Street in front of Indian Larry’s shop, where the 9th annual Grease Monkey Block party took place. The love of these bikes surpasses age, class, and ethnicity. The magnanimous volume of appreciation for workmanship was expressed throughout. Some bikes deserved more attention than others, while some needed to be studied for hours due to the exceeding amount of detail. These details depict the very nature of the owner and what embodies the interests and curiosities of the owner. As automotive enthusiasts in a motorcycle event, TMINUS NYC and I could appreciate the custom aspects since they hit a familiar spot within our own interests.
