including new member English Steve.

Christmas party will occur this year.
Bob presented a couple of the scary incidents from recent MotoGP races;
fortunately no one was hurt.
John spoke briefly about the Veteran’s Ride; he just happened to be up in
Woodland Park and joined them; at least 500 bikes were involved.
Jim spoke about the upcoming [Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride](
www.gentlemansride.com/), an annual charity event for men’s health
where participants wear dapper old clothing, groom their beards, and ride
old motos. He will post more information on the Facebook site soon.

clamps, as long as you don’t need to remove them very often.
John showed off the pre-unit transmission he pulled off his ’48 Triumph,
which appears to be much older and includes what he thinks is a gear-driven
Due to weather, the ride tomorrow will stay closer to home and lee will
