    You have that backwards Pat. Mods were the weasely little wankers dressed up in suits and buzzing around on scooters.

    Rockers are the traditional Ace Cafe style black leather jacket wearing riders on cafe racers.

    Here's a couple more pictures from the show,

    Those are some cool bikes. The older I get the more I'm starting to gravitate towards the vintage bikes and period customs.

    Thanks for the clarification Rich, without actually investigating for ourselves. And, once again, guy figuring is seemingly backwards. The last pics are way cool!!! I am way overdue for a visit to the big city, and am itchy to see the new Sears(willy?) tower observation deck, I should mark the calendar for next year!

    this is a thread that worth bringing to the top.
    taking in account the "from bad pile" thread i decided to dig this one to complement it.

    now, as i comprehend better the whole "mods vs rockers" thing, i think i get the partial and slightly sarcastic tone on your writing that at the time was not fully clear...

    Thanks Helio.





    Only 5 months till the 2011 Mods vs Rockers show.


    This year I'm going to make an effort to really treat the show like a photo assignment and try to bring back some seriously high quality images.

    When I'm around all those great motorcycles, I get lost in the cool engineering and I sometimes forget how to take good photos.

    I missed the show in 2013 but it looks like it will be bigger and better than ever this year for the shows 10th anniversary. Just a couple of months away, and I can't wait. I'll be there camera in hand to record the fun.
