Happy Easter At Toymakers Cafe

FALLS VILLAGE, CT – Celebrants of the Church of Two Wheels joined for an Easter gathering at Toymakers Cafe this morning. The non-denominational get-together was attended by many BMW, Honda, Moto Guzzi, Suzuki, Triumph and Yamaha owners. Surprisingly, no Ducati, Kawasaki, Harley-Davidson or Indian followers arrived – at least not before 10:15 a.m.

Blessed with warm and sunny weather, the worshippers communed at the picnic tables outside the cafe. The first parishioner to arrive was aboard an orange 1985 Yamaha V-Max:

He was soon followed by dozens of others who were determined to take advantage of the rejuvenating air of a delightful spring morning. The BMW clan was well represented:

1977 BMW R 100 RS
2013 BMW K 1600 GT
2002 BMW R 1200 C
2015 BMW R 1200 GS and 2016 BMW F 700 GS

Young and old machines were well represented. Among the Honda motorcycles in the parking lot display were:

1978 Honda CB750 cafe model
2005 Honda VTX 1300
2015 Honda Gold Wing F6B in blue and 2013 Honda Gold Wing F6B in black
1992 Honda ST1100

Two vintage Moto Guzzi models showed up for coffee:

1985 Moto Guzzi V65 Lario
1994 Moto Guzzi California

Riders came from as close as Cornwall and Lakeville and from as far away as Long Island. There were twin Suzukis and one vintage example of the brand:

2012 Suzuki V-Strom 650
2012 Suzuki V-Strom 650 and 2016 BMW F 700 GS
1975 Suzuki GT185

Team Triumph had some devotees, too:

2000 Triumph Sprint RS
2011 Triumph Tiger 800

And, yes, there was a lone Victory and one more Yamaha.

2012 Victory Cross Roads
2008 Yamaha FJR 1300

The Easter breakfast service at Toymakers Cafe seemed like an impromptu motorcycle show at times. Maybe that’s an idea for next Easter.
