Karl (on his Yamaha Blaster) gives his wife Sara (on her Yamaha TW200), a bit of a nudge to start the day off. So now who's the boss? I'd say the one out front with the pink pigtails!
This year we added a twist to the trail ride and tried doing a few motorcycle rodeo 'tricks'. As everyone who tried found out, these different tasks were not easy to do.
First off was riding the plank. After a while, the guys got good at this one and started "catching some air." Dave led the way on his 1972 Honda CL100.
John took a slight detour with the 1980 Honda Trail 70.
Then the weenie bite, or Jim R. could just call it "fishing for bikers". Dave takes the bait...
...while John misses on the first fly-by.
Last was the obstacle course. At first the riders thought "piece of cake".
Then they had to do it blindfolded, with the passenger telling them which way to go. Now that was pretty much impossible to do.
Jeff and his girlfriend Marie were out to prove that "love is blind". That is until Jeff almost hit Dave's freshly refurbished Honda CB350. Tyler watches from his mid-70's Honda CT90, and tries to stay clear of the scene.
Then Marie thought it would be safest to just hide behind Jeff and steer HIM by the shoulders.
John decided to try it alone with many shouts of encouragement(?) from us on the sideline.
We still have to perfect these events, but it sure was entertaining, nonetheless. Our bonfire continued into the evening, with Jimmy tending the fire the whole time....it burned for over 12 hours.
Brian and Jimmy pose and become Pahl's Classics version of American Gothic...
We do know how to have fun, don't we?
