Greetings, all! Yes, I am late again with The Corner but this time only by a week. Last time I was a month late, so I am getting better. Who knows, the October Corner may actually come out on October 1 (October Fool’s!).
On to the news… I trust that most of you have been smart enough to limit your motorcycle time this past week to reading motorcycle magazines, polishing your bikes (assuming your garages are air conditioned), and planning for the upcoming Manchester Beach weekend. With that segue, Manchester Beach is coming up fast! In just three weeks we will be enjoying the coastal cool weather, the great roads, the giant raffle, and the camaraderie we have come to expect at Manchester. This year we will also find out the winner of Fred’s “Ride to Eat” contest and someone will win a set of new tires to replace the ones he or she wore out trying to win the contest. Please sign up on the RCB Forum so we have a good idea of how many attendees to expect. In past years we have had upwards of 100 riders and guests there. Let’s try to beat that this year in our first real post-COVID gathering.
We have had good turnouts at our meetings and monthly rides as we all get back into the swing of things. The Tahoe Chill was a bear-filled adventure with great food, perfect weather and plenty of storytelling around the faux fire. We will definitely continue that tradition, so keep the middle of August free next year. Many thanks to Jack and Lynell for the fantastic food. You guys continue to spoil us every year.
If you have ideas for rides or events please share them with the RCB Board. You can e-mail us at email@example.com with suggestions. Campers can come up with rustic trips and the non-campers can counter with rides to luxurious spas to pamper sore riding muscles. Ideally, we can have something for everybody but we need your input. Free beers can be available at either type of event.
PLEASE… GO ONLINE RIGHT NOW AND SIGN UP FOR MANCHESTER! YOU WON’T REGRET IT!!
Ride safely once it gets cool enough to ride at all, Gordy (Your once and future prez)
