I wanted to go, ended up working on the cage and doing and oil change on the beemer instead. How was it?

We rode, but sans the sartorial splendor.

A hoot. Never got above 40 MPH. Lots of approval from the masses.

Not bloody likely.
This ride referenced an era way before any mods or rockers....

The number of grouchy dudes on ADV who get their panties in a bunch each time someone else has fun while riding a motorcycle appears to be going up.

I think I'll just stick to having fun... look at the grin on Shnitzel's face...

Fun on bikes is what its all about..

Gentlemen bikers- Tweed and flat caps with silk scarves with the smell of oil and good brandy in the mix!:D

Yup-in the rain in Western NY- great brew after and a place to get warm.

caponerd 10-04-2012 08:34 PM

I'm sorry I missed that. The nearest one to me was in a city 100 miles away, and there was a mods vs rockers ride in my home town the day before, which I attended instead.

Next year. The one in San Francisco looked like fun. (I'm on BARF under a different name)

Where are all the "gear nazi's"?

Rob Farmer 10-05-2012 02:07 PM

A gentleman wouldn't ride any of those machines. Theres only one true Gentlemans machine

and a passable second would be a Hesketh
