Wish I could say something really articulate...but a hearty THANKS will have to suffice. This truly made my day.

PM'd you.

You guys are so lucky to have grown up in a household like that.

Tell your dad for us we all think he's got big brass hanging between his legs.

Just wanted to thank you for posting those pictures, they're nothing short of awesome.
I found a link to this thread on two other boards, just to show you how cool they are.

I agree. I only hope to provide just as good of an evironment for my daughter Dayna. She's only 10 months old, so she's got a ways to go. However, I'm working on a sidecar in the mean time...

I'm speechless. Breathtaking shots! This link was passed on via Oregon and into the FLH community, Australia, UK, Canada, US, Scotland and more--we are taken aback. Thanks for an incredible Thanksgiving wrap-up and for sharing your Dad's priceless adventures. Hollister with altitude!

Hollister with skill, mountains, snow, and giant cajones. There was no shortage of attitude at Hollister.

On July 4 1947, 4,000 'straight-pipers' rode into Hollister. Their plan was to spend the long weekend partying and watching the races, but the partying got a little out of control. Even the local police admitted that the bikers "did more harm to themselves than they did to the town" but the press blew the story out of proportion. When the events were dramatized by Hollywood in 'The Wild One', America's image of motorcycling changed forever. Now you can read what really happened, in the words of people who were really there.

More here.

I just have to add my personal "thanks" for posting these family heirlooms.
Speaking about freedoms, I wonder if in 50 years people will wonder at the freedoms we enjoy/ed.
Thing is if you never had that freedom you dont miss it when you don't got it.

best wishes, Cole

those '50's Harleys

so there i was, browsing through our own little "local" bulletin board over here in Ireland. when, as often happens - someone posts a link to another site with a clue in the subject line as to what its about...
so i clicked it....

W o w !!!

Now - 24 hours later, i am still thinking of those images posted here of the riders from the 1950's. it was so good to see this. i just wanted to say a Thank You to the person that shared this with us all - and i do mean ALL! those pics have gone planet wide, such is the jaw dropping quality of those pics!
it did me so much good to see a bunch of guys just out there on their bikes, having fun, enjoying them,riding them, seeing places, reminding us all WTF we got bikes for in the first place!

so the next time i think of moaning or whining about my bike or troubles we face today in relation to riding bikes...i think i'll just pop back in here and remind myself why i got into them in the first place!

Another impressive report by the Webber's!

Here's a shot in the dark:

After WWII, in 1947, my father rode to Evergreen, CO from OH on a 1938 Harley (i'll have to check the year of the harley) Anyway he would talk about riding into the mountains on his days off with some of the locals. Any chance your father was around Evergreen in '47?
He actually rode two up to CO He worked at a resort in Evergreen during the summer of '47 then rode onto Kellogg, ID to work in the silver mines.

I don't have picture one of him on his bike. Ask your dad if he ever rode with a guy from OH named Howard aka Howdy or Abe.

Thanks for the report. I'd like to think that my dad rode with the Webber boys in '47
