On the way to JD’s in Castro Valley for breakfast the group ran into a pile of green plastic bottles on the San Mateo-Hayward bridge. One of then kicked up and took out my right mirror. I find it very interesting that Dave G was ridding in front of me when this happened. He was in front of my brother Rob two months ago when a chunk of roadside debris took out Rob’s left mirror housing, headlight lens, and cracked part of the front fairing.

The Norton is Dan’s newest addition. He says he only has room for one Norton, though, so his other one may be up for sale, soon.

Rich has had his K12GT for about a year now. Seems like I forgot to take a picture of it when it was new. Sorry, Rich. (Actually, I didn’t forget to take pics. Check out the pics from Mother’s day last year.)
