Whether you are a dirt-bike warrior, everyday street biker or the dressed in leather Harley-type, the 8th annual Motorcycles in the Park event brings all motorcycle junkies under one roof.
The event, hosted by the San Diego Antique Motorcycle Club and the San Diego Automotive Museum, will feature more than 150 motorcycles Feb. 12 to 27 inside the automotive museum in Balboa Park.
“You see 100 years of motorcycle (memorabilia) from all over the world,” said Dina Jo Madruga, a spokeswoman for the Automotive Museum.
That includes American icons Harley-Davidson and Indian Chiefs; British-made Brough and Superior; German BMWs; and Japanese and Italian motorcycles too, she said.
“One year we had the world’s oldest BMW motorcycle from 1923,” she said.
She estimates the motorcycles cost between $10,000 and $75,000, but no “for sale” signs are permitted.
Last year, the event drew 5,000 people a week. Madruga expects about the same attendance this year. There will be “folks who dream about owning a bike and those who own a great one,” she added.
Admission is $7 each for adults, $6 for seniors and active military, $3 for children ages 6-17 and free for children under 6.
