Here is a bit of my past. We were young and having a ton of fun. Riding, drinking and gals was the best way to kill some time with our pals, Grease, rock & roll, the smell of Pomade in the air, we were greasers. Good times for all.

It was pre helmet law. I was the only one that would wear a hemet most of the time. I don't think it was until about 93-94 when California got the helmet law.

Nice pics. You guys looked to be around the same age as I was in that era, similar mix of bikes and a distinct lack of Jap stuff as well.

I hope you're going to dig a few more out for us

That's a tasty T3 in the first picture.

We are all in our early 20's and we were a European only club. Here is a link to all of the pictures I have.

Great pictures Chris. I am digging the "bash bar" on the headlight in this shot. Never saw one before.

I graduated high school in 1982. I was lobbying hard to get a BMW /2 basket case for my first ride in about 1980, but lost the fight. My mom is an ex-Marine . . . No kidding. I was born near El Toro MCAS.

Paul Harvey time!

If you think about it, your /5 was relatively recent & the /2 not really all that old at the time...
The thing I notice about 80's era photos is everyone seems to be enjoying themselves vs lookin' hard all the time.

& now, the rest of the story?

Especially-where are the bikes?

Too cool Chris! Enzo, Dad and I really enjoyed seeing these photos! I want to know what music you guys listened to the most back then. Some Priest and a little Ritchie Blackmore perhaps? :)


I'm helping dad put together his first post with some similar vintage photos.
