Outstanding photo journey, Wayne. One of the best I've ever seen here...and the best part...those fellows really seem so happy!

That's incredible stuff, best old bike archives I've ever seen. What a way to start my week. Keep em' coming. It has special meaning because of the many times I've been to Mt. Evans. Thanks for making my Monday morning a better one.

Baldy,

There has to be a Hall of Famer in there somewhere!

You did it again, Wes. I come in on a Monday morning and you've banged out a post that literally has me reading with my mouth hanging open.

Amazing photographs. It's surprising to me that the photography of that time was good enough to capture those action shots. You guys bitch about who's got the smallest digital camera. These guys were probably lugging around some kind of large format Graflex and a tripod, ferchrissakes.

Thank you SO MUCH for sharing these pictures with us. I'm forever in your debt. You, your brother and your trials bikes are invited to ride around my living room any time.

WOW! Great pics, thanks for sharing.

Two things that may have made the 1950 HD popular were OHVs, and the second year with the HydraGlide front fork, which replaced the old springer front end.

Great photo-journey!

It makes you really appreciate this forum... Not only because of threads/pics like this one, but because of the community. Those guys Adventured as a group. They pushed each others abilities, photographed the heroic moments (and the defeats too), repaired and modified each others bikes, benched raced when not riding and shared a bond of experiences that I'm sure exists even today.

Kind of like the group here at AdvRider.

Thanks for these pics... and thanks again to everyone here for continuing the tradition!

This is one of the best reports ever seen here, and definitely worth keeping available. I have contacted Baldy and the other mods about a Hall of Fame spot for it.

Thank you so much. Threads like this make Advrider the best there is.
