    Exactly. I'm going to the Beemer Bash in Quincy, CA, this weekend, lots of Sierra riding to get there and back, too. Heck, even the MOA mileage contest has another month to run.

    Meanwhile... In April, I held an Airheads/Vintage Tech Day at my house.


    Then I went to Europe to go to one of the biggest vintage swapmeets in the world, Veterama:


    Sadly, my old R1100RS that I keep in Germany broke down, but I was able to get it fixed.

    Even so, I was lucky enough that a friend in Germany let me ride his vintage Zuendapp in a couple vintage rallies. This is a 1938 Zuendapp K500, 4 speed handshift sidevalve hardtail, making about 18 hp.


    In May, I went to the Village Idiots' Lost Coast Luau in Eureka, CA. CA-1 was looking mighty fine...


    ...and the weather really cooperated!


    In June, the Vintage BMW club had it's local Vasona Park Picnic.


    I also got to ride my repaired RS around in Italy, and specifically, in Tuscany. Oh, the food, the wine, and the roads are great!


    July was the MOA Rally in Spokane, of course. A friend from Germany came over and we made a 4,000 mile tour. We started by heading south... to meet some friends for lunch at the Far Western Tavern in Guadalupe, CA for a BBQ steak brunch.


    Unfortunately, after riding through the Sierra on the way north, the R1150RS had a problem.


    But Ozzie's BMW of Chico fixed it immediately. Even though the bike was out of warranty, and they've never seen me before, they got a partial refund from BMW NA for me. The rest of the trip was, fortunately, mechanically uneventful. The rally was fun...


    ...and then we rode to Seattle with some friends, through Mt. Rainier park.


    On the way home we rode through the Avenue of the Giants.

    Dang Darryl, you get to have too much fun! I spend most of my time looking through a big glass windshield wishing I was on my bike.

    That's not what my wife says.

    Besides getting off to the Central Cal Autumn Beemer Bash today, I hope to make the California Coast Campout & BBQ vintage rally on one of my older bikes. So there's definitely still some summer left!

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.

    Summer fun!

    Between Angel Fire, NM and Ocate, NM - 12 miles of "unimproved roadway" - Weather and scenery were spectacular.
