Charming Gentlemen Riding Vertical Twins

To celebrate my friend Carl’s new-to-him Triumph Bonneville and my well-running 37yo Yamaha XS650 we decided to quickly establish a new club and meet halfway to work out bylaws and other details. Carl headed west from Spokane and I rode east from Seattle and with no more coordination than “I’ll see you at noon”, we arrived at our destination in Moxee nearly to the second of each other. What organization! What riding skill! What luck! I predict a great future for this new group.

Carl and I caught up on family, friends, and our health while waiting for our grilled ham and cheese sandwiches to finally show. The iced tea was prompt, tho.

Carl covered about 400 miles and I did about 380. I don’t believe I have ever crossed the Cascades on a moto so early in the year. Good times!
