On Saturday January 19th, I helped a buddy get his (unique) motorcycle down to Downtown HD in Renton for a Vintage Bike show. Focus was on dirt bikes, and motorcrossers, but all sorts of interesting things came out of the woodwork. Here are a few of the pictures I took. Grab a tasty beverage for a nice stroll down memory’s pit lane here.

Hi Gang! It’s been two years since I posted here, and nearly that long since i had ridden an event until the 13th of January, 2013. No excuses, just a hectic life, spiced up with a mangled left knee in August of 2012, that has kept me off the loop and out of the sections.
Rode the first PST event of the year, the Plastered Purple Penguin, at Marysville. Two stories dominated the day: my tender left knee, which it turned out, acquitted itself quite well, and the bitterly cold weather, and accompanying frozen tundra. In many sections, the line was polished smooth due to the action of trials tires on frozen dirt. Very challenging. But my knee and I survived, I didn’t take home last place, and I had fun, so there will be more events in my future, and more postings here.
