The Greenwich Concours is pleased to partner with motorcycle racer and American Iron Magazine publisher Buzz Kanter to present A Century of Competition Motorcycles showcasing race-bikes of various styles from the early 1900s to present. “I’ve heard motorcycle racing started when the first motorcycle rider came across another on the road. And it’s been full throttle ever since.” Buzz Kanter claims. “This display honors the brave two-wheel competitors of the last century. We are thrilled to share a hundred years of race bikes at this year’s Greenwich Concours.”

Classic Harley Panhead Art

Nothing special, but I like this photo of the left side gas tank and handshifter of my 1948 Harley Panhead.

I had just ridden to the local gas station to fill up and the sun was going down, so I pulled over to take this photo with my cellphone camera.

Looks artsy, so thought we’d share it here. – Buzz Kanter
