    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...

    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"?

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