|This 1960 Royal Enfield Fury was the star of the show for me.|
It may be the shiniest Royal Enfield I've ever seen. I certainly hadn't expected to see a Fury at all. The Fury was a factory high performance single, built by Royal Enfield in very small numbers.

Cafe racers were the featured type at this year's event and there was much to admire among them. But I couldn't help being distracted by the racing seat on a 1966 Ducati Monza 250 shown by Gregory Poole of Indialantic. Two pieces of thin, exposed foam. A woman passing by couldn't help pressing it with her fingers.
