I went to bike night down in Richmond, part of Greater Vancouver and is about half an hour south.
I have mentioned this before on prev posts. It is hosted by 5th Gear and they supply the food for the BBQ. Tonight I was told about 120 bikes were in attendance.
There were bikes parked in every direction. While there were mostly sportbikes, some like to ride their classics
I noticed this "better than new" Vincent
I spoke to the owner for a bit
and he explained to me the purpose of this rear sprocket, which appears to be on the wrong side.
It is a stunningly beautiful bike and has 4 mechanical drum brakes (2 on each wheel).
One of the organizers (Chia: Darren) takes hundreds of photos at each bike night, which is held every 2 weeks and posts them on his hosted site. Recently I had a look at some of the photos and noticed a couple of myself
and he caught me in action as I was leaving
Like my buddy Jack "r" I was riding slowly through the crowd and was concentrating more on not dumping the bike with all these people looking, so I did not notice that my photo was being taken
Tonight my riding partner was Mark (Scooby) on his Yamaha Majesty
We ended up doing a loop on River Road
We made a quick pit stop for Mark to change out his smoked visor as the sun was setting. I recently purchased a new helmet with an inside sliding visor which can be activated with your riding gloves on.
It was a great summers evening, although much warmer than usual, and it's always nice to meet up with other riders
