So.Cal. Valks Ride Around
Ride Report and Pictures.
WOW what a great day. It
started off a little cool and windy and it ended a bit windy as
well. In between it was wonderful. 12 bikes and 1 car with Biglou
and Bigmac2 following behind. Kickstands up at 9:00am from the Wheel
Inn in Cabazon. 10 bikes started out and we met 2 more in Mecca.
Michael k and Big Tom from Arizona rode west to join us for the day.
Our first stop was at Salvation Rock at Slab City. Ed got himself
stuck in some soft sand and had to be helped out. We did make him
stay there so we could take some pictures. After about an hour
we were getting hungry and decided to find some place to have lunch.
There wasn't much around that area so we ended up in Brawley and
found a nice place with good food. I think they were glad to see us
with such a big group and they took good care of us. We had a 50/50
and Strawbobrob was the big winner. Rob donated the winnings back to
the club which was really nice of him. From there we headed to
Jimmy's house to meet his son Jimmy Jr.. There must have been some
miscommunication because he wasn't there. So after a brief break it
was time to head home. The 10 fwy in the pass was very windy and we
had to be on our toes.
Thanks to Joe, Mike, Elmer, Rick,
Don, Ed, Pat, Brian, Michael K, Big Tom, Rob, Lou, Rich and John for
making it a great day. We did talk for a bit to reflect on our
members that we have lost over the years. God bless all of them and
all of you for the day and ride safe every day.
