Bull City Rumble - Biker Brunch

Sunday, August 2nd marked the last day of events for the 8th annual Bull City Rumble.  The first scheduled event of the day was a biker brunch at James Joyce in Durham.  Having been over to James Joyce the previous weekend, I knew right were to go, I was just hoping for a better turn out this time.

A good size group of bikes steadily rolled in over the next couple hours and lined up down Main St.

There were a number of BSA's that showed up.  Some via their own power and others via trailer.

There were also a number of vintage Hondas that had been converted into Cafe Racer's.

This Suzuki GT 380 is something you don't see everyday.  It's a two-stroker from the early 70's.  Check out the Ram Air cooling system on top of the motor.

A couple of Norton's showed up, in both 850 and 750 flavors.

There were plenty of BMW's as well, including a nice R69S and a R75/5 with some interesting driving lights.

No British bike gathering is complete without a bunch of Triumph motorcycles in attendance.  Unfortunately they were all late model bikes except for one purple and white Trident.

Around 11:30, the bikes pulled out and headed on their run.    Typical for these types of rides, the group was split up before they even got two blocks.

All and all, it was a good turn out and a great variety of bikes.  I plan to make it back there next year for the 9th annual Bull City Rumble.
