    The OVM, Oregon Vintage Motorcyclists' display at Benton County Fairgrounds is this Sunday, 05/20.
    Corvallis Or
    It opens around 10:30 to about 15:00.
    This year's feature marque is Royal Enfield [you know, built like a gun].
    Always a great display.
    Look in the parking lot too, Wow some of the rides should be on display too.
    Nominal fee involved!

    it's worth the 5 bucks they charge to wander around and look at vintage bikes and their owner's daughters.

    Knock on wood, the weather looks good so should be tons of bikes there - the ones in the lot are fun to look at also!

    Went last year, and was blown away by the quality bikes there. Vincents, Indians, BSA's, Norton's etc. Pretty cool stuff. The bikes ridden there were also a lot of fun to check out. Nice to see a "Non Harley" type show - not that they weren't there also, just not the "focus".

    I'm planning on it. Not sure yet if I'm riding or driving depending on the status of a project at 23rd and A in Sprungfeld.

    Señor Vern, are you riding there?

    If my bike is road worthy Ill take it; if not I'll see if I can borrow one. Might be better off borrowing one, as it would be an SRX600. :D

    There's talk of that "r" word.....but I'm still riding. What time will you be leaving Mac?

    I just got started on a PM to you and thought I'd check here first. Glad I did! No worries. I'll see you at the fairgrounds. :D

    Leaving here 9:30 but don't know if my friend wants me to ride his pristine SRX in rain, so don't exactly know what's up yet for getting there. Wasn't able to get the ugly BMW road-worthy in time. :cry

    Great show today despite the Oregon sunshine. Flea market/venders had a ton of stuff and were making sales, and the bikes in the show and on the parking lot were outstanding. One of the best events so far! :clap
