Motorcycles, excepting steam powered and diesel fuelers, were invented in Germany in 1885. The Reitwagen housed an internal combustion engine that burned petroleum fuel. Hot chicks have been attracted to them ever since.
So it's only right that Hamburg, Germany's Erik Vauth and his House Of Thunder dealership
moves into Wynwood and brings a stable full of Royal Enfields and a Harley custom shop with him. The grand opening is December 15th and includes sexy models in bikini photo shoots all day, and plenty of motorcycles to test drive.
Here's what the place looks like and a preview of the crazy bikes you'll see while you're there.
The joint is filled with Royal Enfields. And according to a spokesperson, the showroom is always stocked with at least $1 million worth of cycles.
The showroom was all LED'd out. It looked pretty cool.
Smokin that purple chrome
Here's another bike that was on display
It comes with a portable ac unit
And here goes the vieja guardia of Harleys.
Motorized bicycles may be the next big trend in automotives

There were lines of motorcycles out front too, in the big parking lot of the place.
And you could also get your picture taken on this mean machine
Back in the showroom, they had a raw Africa bike
People walked around, drank free Icebreaker Vodka, ate Vapiano pasta, and looked at motorcycles. There was also plenty of free wine.
The back room workshop was open too
Everybody could mount up and try out the goods
This dude, Erik Vauth, is the Boss Hoss, from Hamburg, Germany, where House Of Thunder is an established concept.
The models made everyone feel welcome
And folks had fun on the bikes
All in all, it's a pretty nice place, and worth checking out.
