I am a few days late with the “Corner” since I wanted to wait until the 49er Rally was over to file my report. The 49er was the first real “post-COVID” rally and was ample evidence that our motorcycling friends are VERY ready to get back out on the roads with their buddies. There were nearly 600 people up in Quincy (which is about 500 more than were up there for the last Beemer Bash!). RCB was well represented with almost twenty folks that I counted. Ken and I (mostly Ken) set up the two poker runs to help out NorCal. NorCal was very appreciative of our efforts and both runs were big hits. Overall, the rally was very well organized and well received by all the attendees.
On the local front, our June meeting was well attended and the monthly ride to Priest Grade Station had plenty of riders. Next month we will resurrect the Yerington Ride ‘n’ Bowl in keeping with our “COVID’s OVER!” theme this year. To avoid a conflict with the July 4th weekend, the monthly meeting, raffle, and ride to Genoa, NV and on to Yerington will be July 9-10. All the details will be posted on the Forum soon. Rummage through your closets, find those RCB Squared bowling shirts and get them to the dry cleaners. Wear them proudly to the meeting in July!!
The “Ride to Eat” contest is in full swing. There is a set of tires (as well as bragging rights) on the line. More than anything, it is a good excuse to get out and ride the great roads that surround us.
Ride safely, ride often and have fun! You all deserve it.
