    Well, that was interesting, talk about a lot of bikes spread over a lot of varied interests, just about anything on two wheels was there. including this quick, not so great of a shot of a RVF750 pulling out just as I got there, got a love auto focus cameras when you're in a hurry. Bummer, would have liked to had a chat with him. DSC02018.jpg

    Cap, I drove around looking if I could have spotted you, but no luck. I did see like 4 other 5th gens one oh shit 4th and a couple other vfrs, but not yours. is there a particular hang out you get to? There was a lot of bikes spread over 4 square blocks, kinda reminds me of cannery row.

    I was there. I parked in a weird spot on the other side of Shelter off of Leary. I can usually find a spot there without having to park a mile away if I don't get there early. Sometimes I'll park down where Hilliards Brewery was.

    You're right... there is a little bit of everything. Did you see that 1993(ish) CBR250RR? Looked like a mini 900RR. I've seen that RVF before.

    Glenn, i've had a CL175K0 in the project que for a while to do some kind of cafe treatment, but it keeps getting pushed back. Never got into the CB350/450s. Probably because I worked on too many piece of shit examples.

    Awe. So close, across from there I spotted two ruff 5th gens. crazy place. Once done riding & looking, I ended up a 1/2 block north of Shelters on 17th, when I spotted the RVF750, I believe I did see the 250, looked like a mini 900rr, light blue This one was very well done.

    For sure it was a 750? I know the owner of the RVF400 that is there usually. He has a bunch of grey market goodness, in 4 and 2 stroke form.
