Do you know Don Rosene?

Yes, I know Don. I knew Ken when he had the Yamaha shop here. Worked for him briefly in, I think, 1965. I was just helping him with the new shop building, taking out some walls & such before the shop actually opened. I lived very close nearby.
I always wanted to ask him for a job, but was about to get drafted & I never did ask because he would have been on the hook to hire me back after I got out of the service.
I always regretted that I didn’t ask.
Last time I saw Ken was in the early ‘70’s. Really a great guy. I have some friends & acquaintances that knew him & would visit him down there. Someplace in Oregon I think.
At one point I had an e-mail addy & a maybe phone number for him. But I never got to talk to him.
Sure wish I had.

Ahh! Chiefrider, I found this old thread, check it out.

As I was old enough to be her father at the time, I didn't bother to check.

ain't this some sh-t

a "buddy" bought a foto album at an auction filled with motorcycle club pics from the '20 and '30's, mostly from the marion, ohio area. i asked him if i could scan them. he thinks it's gotta go thru some rollers and stuff and is afraid it will ruin his stuff. keep in mind he also thinks computers are the work of the devil! honestly, i think it was too much glue 40 some yrs ago. i'll probably never see the pics even tho we see each other occasionally. i do believe he likes having stuff others can't see and enjoy too. i know, it's his stuff and he can put it where he wants...lol
also, he told me yrs ago about some old movies of races from the family that owned indian at the time, late 20's-30's. i have tracked that down to be true and have spoken with the man but he to hasn't decided to share the movies with the rest of the world either even tho he could, probably, make some $$ at the same time and possible save the film before it gets too old and brittle.
if anything breaks loose i'll let you folks know. great pics by the way.
