In the middle of that transformation, a book was written that used the motorcycle as a lesson in philosophy and life. The gist of the book, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance at least in part asserted that people experience things differently from a bike. The frame of a car is gone, and youre in contact with the elements. In a car, youre a passive observer; everything you see is just more TV. On a bike, youre in the scene.
So get out of your box this Saturday and experience the Motorcycle Madness Bike Show, which will feature a 12 class custom bike competition, vendor displays, raffles, and live music by Joel DaSilva of the Hep Cat Boo Daddies. At 7:30 p.m., the Precision Thunder Drill Team will perform synchronized motorcycle riding, and at 9:15 p.m., antique cars are set to arrive at the Mardi Gras Casino (831 N. Federal Highway, Hallandale Beach). The event runs from 6 to 11 p.m. and benefits the Big Bike Riders Childrens Foundation and the Meyerhoff Senior Center, and admission is free. Call 954-924-3200, or visit playmardigras.com.
