It was a brisk 72F in southern California today, perfect weather for moto mayhem.

Post 'em if you got 'em. It'll take me a while to scratch the surface.

you got it.







the Brit bikes brought an element of ecological disaster to the event...



it was a freakin' free-for-all











three different named routes plus some longish short-cuts. We rendezvous in the sticks.
This year the scoots failed to show... typical wanker Mods

Mods Vs. Rockers... i guess we know who won, not a Vespa in sight, just one moped guy had the gut huh?
For me it'll be next since my R90 is down with gearbox issues.

The scooter scum were just a little late to the party, not everybody has a 220 race kit with chamber on their Vespa you know!

That little orange Honda 110 went a lot faster than you would think!

Bunches of photos posted at www.boomer22.shutterfly.com or on the Mods vs Rockers FB page.

If you see yourself or a photo you really like, pm me with the description or # and I'll send you the J.peg.

Yeah, the Mods eventually showed up.







I suppose that's about all I have that's post-worthy.







please accept my apologies

That little silver Honda 4 cafe bike won best in show and has copper plated bits. Nice young fella out of Redlands CA.
Just about the only ride I've ever been on where the Guzzi riders outnumbered the Harley riders... awesome!

It was originally sold from Sonny Angel Motorcycles to a woman who eventually rode it from San Diego to Mexico City and back.
