Motorcycle Swap Meets Great Photos – Great Friends

Editor’s Note: Our friend Peg Miller of metro Racing recently sent this message after returning from yet another motorcycle event, the typical kind of events that fill her days – and add to her substantial roster of riding friends. Peg reminds us that it’s true: seeing friends might not be the overt reason riders gather, but often as not, that’s the part we remember vividly and cherish most. – Marilyn Stemp

This past weekend I attended the Potomac Vintage Riders Bike Show and Swap Meet in York, PA.  I have been going to this event for about 20 years and it is always a great reason to get out of the shop in the middle of winter. Being a veteran at this event, it is also great to see old friends.   Yeah, there is facebook to keep up to date on everyone, but some escape your news feed and it is always good for the soul to actually talk to people.   Another good part of seeing people and being in the vintage motorcycle community is that people love to share old photos and stories of days gone by.  So, Sunday, I was lucky enough to meet a man that showed me these four photos.  They were taken by his Dad, Warren Lowry, at the 1977 Mid-Ohio Trans Am Race.  His Dad has passed on but he wanted to share for all.

Thank you Warren for taking these awesome photos and thank you to everyone that shares their story with me.  I treasure each one.
