|Lots of old bikes in Tryon, N.C.|
As I was leaving on my 1981 Honda CB 750,
a guy sitting next to me on a Norton said, "Wow! That electric starter is a nice accessory.". There were plenty of motorcycles at this show with no electric starter. An equal array of antique cars was on display. There was Lamborghini, Ferrari, Austin,Packard, Studebaker, Boattail Riviera, 55 T Bird, Super Sport Chevelle, cool Jeeps, and lots of super cool trucks.
If you missed the Tryon Rolling Art antique car and motorcycle show in 2018, put it on your schedule for next year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vZVHiFux20 Ride your bike to the show. Tryon is a tiny little quaint charming delightful friendly town at the bottom of the steepest railroad grade east of the Mississippi, the Saluda Grade. The railroad and the Pacolet River and U.S. 176 follow the grade up the mountain to Saluda and Hendersonville. This is one of the best motorcycle roads in western North Carolina. http://rondclimer.blogspot.com/2016/02/ride-your-bike-to-pearson-falls-on-us.html

If you are coming to Tryon from Asheville, get off that nasty old Interstate 26 at exit 53. Come down U.S. 176 from Hendersonville through Saluda to Tryon. It is a fun, beautiful ride. If you are coming from South Carolina, get off the interstate at Inman and come up U.S. 176 through Landrum into Tryon. Join us next year. Bring your antique bike or your modern bike, the one with the electric starter. Tryon Rolling Art is a great antique bike and car show.
