Reader Submittal. First Ever Yamaha Enduro Fest!

Mark Robers Sends in some pics and video from the California Yamaha Endurofest!  Not THAT is a day very well spent.  Nicely done Gents.

Mark Writes In:
I hope you are doing well, just wanted to pass some information. We just had the first Yamaha Enduro Fest offroad ride in Gorman California.
There were many early Yamahas there. I am attaching a few links to pictures and videos that we took while there. Feel free to use anything you like.
We are hoping to have a second event in the Eastern US in March or April of 2011.

And here’s another one that ends with a grin..

Ohio Valley BSA Owners Club "Reliability Run". Some More Great Pics from Ted Guthrie!

Woke up this morning wondering where to go with today’s post and was very happy to find a few e-mails from regular contributor Ted Guthrie. He’s been busy lately and sent in these fantastic pictures.

Ted Writes:

Hi, Steve. Attended the Ohio Valley BSA Owners Club spring meet this last weekend. Lots of cool bikes on hand, as usual. The following images represent a sampling of machines, which took part in Saturday’s Reliability Run (vintage dual-sport) event. So, these bikes are riders, not just for show, and as a result wear their battle scars proudly.
Note, the guy posing behind the Penton MC5 is none other than Jack Penton.
I’m sending these in full-res, so I’ll send more in separate e-mail. Enjoy.

Here are a few more. Note, in addition to those bikes, which participated in the Reliability Run, the pretty blue BSA single and the old Indian were part of the BSA Club’s vintage trilas event, and the cool, little ’52 Triumph Terrier is in flattracker guise.

Great Stuff as always! You can even see the grins under some of those helmets. Thanks Much Ted!

"Riding Into History" at World Golf Village in St Augustine Today.

And What a great day it was. I’ll be posting LOTS of pictures from todays event. The Theme this year was American Bikes and the event “special guest” was Craig Vetter So of course there was Lots of Harleys and quite a few beautiful Triumph Hurricanes.We also had a nice group ride up to the show with our local “North florida Vintage Riders” club. We are definately an eclectic bunch… of bikes AND riders. 🙂 LOTS more to follow. Even a little video of the ride down I hope… Stay Tuned

More "Kickstart Only" Club Pictures

More great shots from regular contributor Eric Stofer!

Eric Writes:

“A few shots from the annual bike swap meet in Tsawassen BC. About a dozen or so of us from the island, roaring down the highway to catch the 7am ferry to the show. Great day! Great swap meet and hundreds of bikes of all makes, original and customs. No breakdowns either! Kickstart bikes rule!”

YES they do!

Reader Rides! Kickstarters Only! My Kind of BikeNight!

Eric Stofer sends in some pics of his local ride. Great Stuff!

He Writes:

“Hey Steve
As promised, here’s a sampling of a WNA (wednesday night assholes) ride. This week, a garage tour. 1969 Royal Enfield first startup after rebuild and a 1946 Velo which is running, riding and is a fresh restore (just needs a bit of tweaking). Otherwise, what you see is a typcal, after work, wed night turnout.
Bikes are: 57 TRW, 69 BSA Lightning, Various 70’s Nortons, a Bonneville, a Tiger, an Indian Enfield, a 65 Norton Atlas….usually 8 to 12 bikes going for a noisy burn and a pint. Enjoy!”
