During MotoGP weekend in Indianapolis, the motorcycle scene comes alive. One of the happening spots is Meridian Street spanning several blocks from Monument Circle down to Union Station. Here’s a sampling of photos we captured during Indy’s biggest motorcycle street gathering Motorcycles On Meridian.
Indianapolis Motor Speedway makes its presence known at Motorcycles on Meridian.
Custom as custom gets. This bike was dubbed, “Hogillac.”
Wasn’t much longer after this photo, they started parking the bikes in the middle.
Seriously, this place was hoppin’.
Keeping the peace among all the noise.
Moto Guzzi sidecar: Bring the whole family!
NOS-powered Grom. 😉 This rooster tail was accompanied by a loud PSSSHHHHH sound.
There are a lotta characters to be found during Motorcycles on Meridian.
A view from the “Circle” looking down Market Street toward the Capitol Building.
Lotta folks were filming from the bike. Wonder where all that footage ends up?
We brought our Ural sidecar, BMW cafe racer, and our brother-in-law, Chris, rode our W650 cafe racer.
Typically muggy and very hot, the weather was great and spirits were high.
Moving through the constant flow of bikes, Casey (of GSG) looks for photo ops.
Dressed up street performers and bikers shared the same sidewalks; everyone seemed to play nice.
Downtown living must be interesting with music and thousands of bikes revving to the moon on Fri/Sat night.
Makin’ it happen.
