Flashback Fridays at Paco's Tacos

Post by 2manyrides » Sat May 19, 2012 2:36 pm

Rode on up to Grass Valley last night for the vintage "ride in".
I rode a bike by "another manufacturer", and there were bikes from "other un-named" manufacturers there.
But also some good british machines...
Have a look;

Love the vincent I owned one in the 70's.
Should never have sold my old bikes.

The alloy 500 non unit twin and any of the cubs are the only Brand T bikes I ever liked.

This evening I attended my 3rd "flashback fridays".
Although smaller in atendance this month I had a very good time with much discussion and inquiring about my B50.
This month there were less british bikes, but this gal, who has a different technic than most of us, is there each time.

As she mauvered backwards to escape past my bike, her slightly puffing tailpipe exhaust patted away at my hanging tool belt. <937

Her bike is quite polished, it really sounds stout and proper. I'm told she rebuilt it herself
under the guidence of the vincent rider.
Another machine worth noting... :uhu

This is about 50 miles from my home. I took off a third of the day at 2pm, to ride up and visit with friends for a few hours before heading down the hill and around the corner to paco's tacos. (I DID eat 3) <201
Rode home.....riding into the valley.....and into the sunset. <216 Nice!

For those who are interested they have a F/B page...

I already have shown my video from last month elsewhere on B50.org...or did I ???
But mow I'm rambling on... :razz:
