A view looking south on Meridian from Monument Circle. Bikes as far as you can see.

You’ve seen our Friday post of the 2013 Motorcycles on Merdian, now here are the Saturday pics. Both photo sets only scratch the surface of the size this event has grown to. The folks at Indianapolis Motor Speedway have done well and coordinating and spurring the success of this gathering, which happens in conjunction with the Red Bull Indianapolis GP weekend. Here’s just a taste of the scene…

Though there was a big presence of police on hand, we didn’t see any angst.

Park your bike or cruise the strip…or do both. There’s sure to be someone who’ll dig your motorcycle.

If you missed it, just plan on being there next year, when MotoGP returns to Indianapolis! The scene is alive from the early afternoon to well past midnight. If you’ll be in Indy for the Red Bull Indianapolis GP or the Indy Mile, top off the evening with Motorcycles on Meridian in 2014.
