Oct. 12th in Elk Grove ~ Marque Sunday

October's Marque Sunday is Euro Bikes and will be in Elk Grove.

Last Sunday the Marque was Vettes and Vipers and we had a nice showing of bikes (only 4 of us bmws though) with a very nice ride up WWS afterwards. Great pics on the bikes (ducati ruled the day on this one);

Nice pics of us leaving for the ride as well.

Who is going to try and make October? Planning a EG, Plymouth, Volcano, to Sutter ride afterwards. We had about 20 bikes last Sunday for the WWS ride...ended up at Joker's to eat tri-tip and watch MotoGP.

Nice pictures Larry!

I saw a couple of pictures of an "old friend" there as well (thanks!) - an older (pre-1960 or so) Triumph Bonneville T120. Looks like a stock US-export version ("high" handle bar). It's easy to tell in that the engine and gearbox are still in separate modules. Can't remember exactly when, but sometimes in the late '50s, Triumph changed the construction of their engine and combined the engine & gearbox into a singular unit.

Local Rat group that gets together and helps each other get the bikes going and they show up to these outings....beautiful machines! My dad was a huge Triumph and Norton fan...spilled over to his cage as well. He drove his TR3 as a daily for years.
