I've been on-call for the last week, so I wasn't able to sign up for any Freewheeler rides over the weekend. This doesn't mean I've been off the bike the whole time. I was able to take a short ride with my dad on Saturday. He owns a Honda dual sport and we were finally able to meet up and ride through Gates Pass. Good ride, but it's starting to get a little warm in the afternoon. Morning rides are going to be the way to go as summer sets in. I can't imagine riding the bike in 100+ degree weather.
I check the Craigslist motorcycle listings, for Tucson, just about every day. I like to see what people are selling and you can start to learn the alphabet soup of cycle names after you see them over and over. BMW is the worst..K100RS..I'm sorry but to the beginner motorcycle rider that means absolutely nothing to me. Where as Ninja 250 paints a picture pretty quick. End meaningless ranting. Sometimes local bike clubs will post meet-ups in the ads and one caught my eye as it dealt with vintage bikes. The Tucson Vintage Motorcycle Riders usually meet once a month at a local brewery downtown. I had seen their ads last fall, but had been unable to attend any of them. Well I decide to go see what it was like tonight. Unfortunately everyone else had plans so I ended up going stag. The Barrio Brewery, where the meet-up was held, is a pretty cool place down by the rail road tracks. It's sort of neat to have a meal outside and watch the trains roll by and watch the people look over the bikes.
This had to be my favorite bike there. I'm not sure what year it is.
I had a good time. Supposedly they're having a bike show and swap meet on April 10th at the same location. I'm definitely going. I'll make sure to post photos from that one as well.
