    Just ran across this thread - looks like a great time, John! :clap :clap :clap

    Kalle's roadside repair - nicely done! :bow

    If they do it next year, I'll be riding along. :nod

    Hey Nicky,

    It's a lot of fun riding with those guys and their cool bikes ... hope to see you next time!

    Here's a pic of me and my '73 Tiger that Kalle has posted on his Flikr site (if you click on the photo it brings you to lots more pics of the old bikes):

    Alas, I don't ride either Harley or Indian (I'm a triumph guy now tempted into the world of cheap Japanese enduros from the 70s) but I sure dig anyone that rides their old machine and keeps it on the road.

    I used to have a '73 Tiger, same color, but the side covers and mufflers were different. The seat was a little thinner, too...
