Motorcycles in Cannery Row in Monterey - Click above for a high-res image gallery

With the MotoGP this weekend at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, motorcyclists from all around the country have converged on the Monterey peninsula to attend the event. To welcome the two-wheeled visitors, the city shuts down the main strip of Cannery Row in downtown Monterey the night before the race for one huge motorcycle party. It seems both the community and visitors have fully embraced the tradition, and the streets are packed with owners and spectators admiring the machinery on display. The range of bikes is very diverse, running the gamut from Harleys to Ducatis to custom choppers. Check out our favorites in the high-res gallery below.

THIS explains all the motorcycles that were on the Highway this weekend. I was in Santa Cruz, (north of Monterey) but the only way to get there from the Valley was the way I went.

Wish I could be there, Bikes are just way too cool.

This reminds me that the Honda Superbike week is this month at mid Ohio.
