Vintage Bikes!

I attended the monthly meeting of the Vintage Motorcycle Enthusiasts tonight. It was totally awesome. There were something like 100 motorcycles there, mostly vintage but plenty of modern bikes as well. Plenty of people were interested in my bike as it appeared to be one of the oldest there. 3 people even took pictures, which made me feel pretty damned good.

I'm also happy to report that the bike can do 65 mph just fine. Though I'm unlikely to ever get a speeding ticket on while on the highway. I'm going to get the front brakes relined before I take it out again though, I think that the old pads are breaking down faster now that I've adjusted them.
