Austin, Texas, USA
Austin is booming, in all kinds of ways – it’s a university city that’s justly proud of its vibrant counter culture that makes it feel far less corporate-controlled than many American cities. The centre throbs to the sound of live music and old motorcycles, which are everywhere; especially, it seems, CB250 and 350K4s. Honda must’ve sold an awful lot of the things to Americans during the 1970s. Combine the lure of Revival Cycles and the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show with the city’s general weird-is-good vibe and you have a very good reason to visit.
