A couple hours down the road from Austin, Texas is Luckenbach. It's not even a real place, not exactly. There's a little road that loops off the main road and goes past a few old buildings. It is the sort of place that has more past then future and that's mostly what it's got to sell. But once a year a perfect storm decends on Luckenbach and 3,000-plus motorcyclists pull onto that little loop road for an event known as the The Harvest Classic European & Vintage Motorcycle Rally. The result is just about the perfect laid-back, pure fun Euro-themed weekend. I loved it and I think you will as well. Our first bike (above) is a lovely 1949 AJS 18S that was on display Saturday as a part of the bike show.


This Cezeta scooter with a matching trailer was a crowd favorite.


An exceptionally rare bike, this Miller Balsamo was made in Milano, Italy by the importers of Ariel and Excelsior.

The Harvest is a very special event that grows year by year. This is truly a family event for riders of vintage and classic machines with a generous sprinkling of scooters. Camping adds to the experience as does entertainment and good good. If you've never been, you owe it to yourself to check it out. It is the premier classic event in Texas.
