Talking Sharing

Here's the guy who got me into Motorcycling. My Grandfather, Harold Rhoades.

Ran shine across the St. Clair River from Ontario to Michigan,
Ran one of the first Yamaha dealerships in Michigan,
Flew planes, Was such a good machineist he could never retire. They would keep brining him back by paying him even more money.

I miss him..

Warren, You have my RESPECT

Howdy Wes,

Warren, I would like to say how much I enjoyed looking at and admiring the photos you took and that your son posted.

We should all respect and remember those who have gone before us, photos such as these are truly priceless and should be treasured.

Thank you Wes for posting them, thank you Warren for showing us how it should be done.

whoa

holy cow what a thread! any way it's time to chime in...

Here's Wes and I trying to figure out this adventure thing as youngsters:





yup, on the Z-50's. Wes needed an extra custom short seat to reach the ground (some things don't change) .

What I always remember, looking back, is the basic instructions from Dad:

"Don't go too fast. Don't get lost. Check your gas, if you're half empty come back to the truck".

And that was about it, off we went to who knows where, no map, no water, no food, just hoping we remembered which turn was which on the fireroads around Leadville, Colorado.

Of course we ignored the first instruction, but Wes and I have been avoiding getting lost, and watching our gas tank level for, well, 25 years now.:):

So, as it goes on Thanksgiving day youre supposed to think what youre thankful for. Im thankful for my dad being a nutcase in the 1950s, buying my brother Wayne and I Z-50s in the 70s, and riding every chance I get with my friends and family!

Happy Thanksgiving, all!
thanks for sharing the photos ww..:):

Talking Beautiful Panheads!

I really enjoyed the pics of your Dad and his cohorts rumbling around the hills, thank you for showing how durable these machines really are!
I ride my '53 whenever I can, and argue it's virtue quite often,
Thanx again!

Thumb Tradition...

A few of us keep the old times rolling!
Every year there's a New Year's Day ride to parts known only to the organizer, which ends up like a hare & hound race!
70% of attendees rides are over 25years old.
It's a rain or shine event!

Thanks for the memories!

On or "off the job" these guys exhibit absolute joy when they ride, that's what the photos inspired me to think of....

Book in the works

Hey all-

There have been so many requests for a book that we're gonna try to do it. I'll post here when we get some idea of how long it'll take. I'll also post information regarding the book on our website, www.rallytwin.com.

Thanks everybody for the additional stories and pics of people that influenced your riding lifestyle!
