    Shannon's insurance had their 2nd annual Bikes beside the bay show. Being on a small island in the middle of nowhere and in the middle of winter. It was good size crowd for the bleak conditions of the day.

    I am always surprised of the quality of bikes people have lurking in their garage.

    The Z owners always make an impressive display.

    Always some thing to look at or talk too.

    That is a good question Dave, I think it is an excelsior from the 1910-20 ? period. There were no signs on any of the bikes saying what year or brand.

    Had a brief chat to one of the organizers. They were happy with the turnout considering how cold, windy and threatening to rain at any moment.

    Gary was saying that it was not leaking when he left home. Noticed it when stopped at a set of lights. Bit slack in the tooies front. Only sharonvepsagirl 90ss and the super clean widow maker.
