Vtwin - those are some cool old bikes. Looks like some very fun events also. Thanks for posting!

Thanks guys. Today we had our Delta Ride. A very picturesque ride that hints of Louisiana I'm told. We ride along the Sacramento River on Highway 160. These are levee roads, bumpy due to erosion and ground squirrels burrowing. I leave at 6:30 to make the rendezvous with my club.



Boring freeway with a BMW rider passing by.



The S & M bridge.

Made it with time to spare. It's only 8:30 and only a few are there. So I gas up and get something to eat and come out and the lot is filling up!

Away we go across the Antioch Bridge and everyone hurriely grabs $5.








Excuse the finger...






One of the many bridges that criss cross the river.












We stop for a short break and a literally, the water buffalo's clutch cable decides it's a good time to break also. He's out. So a shove from some club members and he's off.

Guess what I want for Christmas. This is way too shaky, guess I know what my hands are going through now.







Time to head to lunch.

Here's the Isleton Chamber of Commerce site.

This building is one pidgeon away from falling down.







Yep, you guessed it, that was Main Street. No, I do not know how much they wanted for the Rodeo.

The owner of this was really friendly and had owned this original 1918 a long time. Originally from New Zealand.

I have no clue what's what here. I do know there wasn't a single Willys pickup like mine anywhere. Probably since none were used in the military afaik.

We only had an hour here, so I had to make it quick.







Too bad I don't have to room to pick somethings up.
