 A Royal Enfield motorcycle greeted visitors walking into the 2022 Dania Beach Vintage Motorcycle Show in Florida Saturday. For a change, it wasn't mine, in the parking lot.

 The military-style Royal Enfield on display at the entrance was a Squadron Blue 2017 Royal Enfield Classic 500. It was posed next to a genuine military motorcycle: a 1943 BSA W-M20 motorcycle that served with the British 3rd Infantry Division from the Normandy invasion to the defeat of Germany.

As always, the 2022 Dania Beach Vintage Motorcycle Show was fun, free and full of motorcycle delights, including serious classics and creative... err... creations. Here are the first photos I shot Friday.

Civilianized military Triumph motorcycle.

2022 Dania Beach show didn't group bikes by nationality,
but there was no doubt about where this Vespa belonged.

Now let's see that rocket motorcycle fire up.
