If you loved the movie "The Fastest Indian" with Anthony Hopkins, then you would have loved yesterday's vintage motorcycle show at La Tienda in Eldorado. It took up almost the entire parking area, had great live music, hot dogs and hamburgers, and lots and lots of enthusiastic people, including me! By the way, I did love the movie too. Here are some photos that give you a hint of what was going on.

Was this the fastest Indian? Not very politically correct is it?

I love this kind of detail on these bikes.

The amount of time put in to clean and polish these bikes was very evident indeed.
