Being new to Memphis, I got my first chance to experience bike night in August 2014. It's an impressive and noisy display of leather, chrome and power.
Every make, model and style of bike you can imagine make appearances each Wednesday night from April 15 to September 6. Riders with crazy customs park next to little pink scooters, and they all get along.
Life on two wheels appeals to people from all walks of life, and that is on display at Bike Night more than any other bike event you've likely experienced.
Each Wednesday the blues, country and rock n' roll pouring out of the Beale restaurants and clubs is drowned out by the sounds of engines. The sound is music to a biker's ears, but can make it tough to get some sleep in the nearby hotels. Several hotels even provide earplugs to their customers.
I'd love to see your bike if you make it out to Beale this riding season. Send your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org.
