Last weekend (Sept 22-23) was the USCRA's Fall Giro, this year based in Cavendish, Vt. With my Airone still apart, brother Doug(and Amy, for that matter) graciously let me ride the '65 175 CZ. Doug rode his '65 250 Benelli and brought his 200 Bridgestone for backup.
Before we arrived Fri. afternoon, that backup was called upon. Henry Syphers realized just before he arrived that he had forgotten the key to the 175 Bridgestone he had bought from Doug and wondered if we could swing by his house in Manchester, Ct. and pick it up. We were long past Manchester, but Doug suggested Henry could take the ignition switch out of the 200 and put it in his 175.
There were a number of interesting bikes lined up by the time we got there, including a few for sale, like this Ariel Leader.
Sat. started cool and cloudy and, after we rode a ways, got very foggy. Rich Hosley, on his Ossa Wildfire, came by in the fog and we rode together to the first checkpoint at Bunnell's Parts and Accessories, 488 Main St, Claremont, N.H., a non franchised motorcycle, snowmobile and ATV dealer.
