The Bull City Rumble is a "Mods vs Rockers" type event held in Durham, NC. Lots of great vintage motorcycles in attendance, with the bulk of the machines being European or Japanese. Here's an article on the event, plus a couple dozen photos:

Nice photos. Those bikes represent the "Rockers" then - they wore leather jackets, boots and rode Brit motorbikes.

But where were the "Mods"? They wore foppish 60's fashion clothes and rode scooters.

Mods and Rockers were mortal enemies, there were big battles fought at places like Blackpool. All in the name of lifestyle. Think of the film "Quadrophenia", based on The Who's album of that name.
