As luck (or skill) will have it, I was in The Netherlands this weekend in the great city of Utrecht, and while walking the canal streets of this old and beautiful city with my SWMBO, I stumbled upon this.

Today is the National Holiday of Turkey, celebrating the Commemoration of the founder of Turkey, Ataturk Open En.Wikipedia link in a new window. To celebrate this national event, Turkish motorcycle riders living in The Netherlands gathered today to mark this special occasion.

Speeches, gathering, talking between friends, and of course the mandatory ride-out.

Hundreds of motorcycles had gathered on a central square in Utrecht, and most bikers were dressed in a black T-shirt.

Many, if not most of the motorcycles had at least one Turkish flag flying on their bike. A very colorful sight.

While we were walking away, many more bikers were streaming in towards this event. It looked like it was going to be a nice family & friends gathering on a beautiful and sunny day.

Of course I saw none of my Dutch colleagues, who were probably all still fast asleep after a weekend of partying. But for that one day of sunshine, I can't fault anyone on it.

Nice to see people living abroad still so nationalistic. Everything was done in respect and fun.
