Spring 2019 has not exactly been a dream season for motorcyclist in Michigan. Rain, cold temperatures and several cloudy days have kept many bikes tucked away in their garage and riders restricted to the cars and trucks. For the most part only the brave and diehard riders have ventured out whenever the inclement weather has struck. On days temperatures have soared into 60’s and beyond with sunny skies area roads have been packed with cyclist of all ages. This past Saturday riders from around the region converged on Cycle Works in Clare for their fourth Annual Motorcycle show.

Under brightly sunny skies, trikes, touring, dirt, vintage, custom and a few lean mean street bikes glistened in the warm spring sun. If the bikes didn’t grab you’re attention the incredible paint jobs surely did. One trike even featured paintings of the “King” Elvis in action. From a pint sized one-year-old boy studying an engine on a Harley to an elderly rider reminiscing about the good old days while admiring the cool new bikes on hand, this year’s show had something for everyone.

As in previous years the staff of Cycle Works went all out for visitors and bikers alike offering door prizes, great food, live music by the band “Exit 95”, and bargains on parts, clothing and accessories.
