RetroRiders North Central Oregon ride was Yesterday

30 May

This was a break at about the 240 mile mark outside of Ukiah

Rob Rolen lead the ride on his 1972 Suzuki 750 Water Buffalo. We also had a vintage Norton, BMW, Yamaha & a Kawasaki. We also had a couple of modern bikes and a sag wagon driven by Jim Matthiesen.

The weather was good, the roads were great, the scenery was fantastic.

No bikes broke down, but I called it quits at about the 280 mike mark, loaded the bike in the trailer. Thanks go to Rob Rolen for leading us on a very nice ride.
