Vintage motorcylces + sand track on the beach = A DAY OF AMAZINGNESS!!!
"I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it"... bet you started singing along..hahah! It's race day... wahoooo!!!!
The skies opened up unfortunately and it poured like crazy, but that didn't stop folks from coming out to witness the action of the first motorcylce race to happen in a really long time on Milwaukee's sand, Harley Davidson's Bradford Beach Brawl presented by TROG (The Race of Gentleman).
Rain wet the sand in conjuction with the water truck, followed by heavy duty rollers packing it down between runs, but the shear speed and weight of iron and rubber spun it back loose, causing racers to heavily rely on all their skills. Most stayed upright, a few tumbled, there was even a double pile up, causing this to be a true nail biter spectator event which had all eyes on the track. Each race consisted of 3 laps around the sand track, which sounds way easier than the actual task.
Luckily about mid-day the sun decided to reappear and bring even more folks to join in the action.... wahooooo!!!
