Ride for Dad 2017
« on: June 18, 2017, 19:25:46 PM »

 So Sat was the 10th Annual Ride for Dad in support  of research and cure of prostate cancer. This year due to a not so good weather forecast the turnout was not so good, we had 400 riders show up and for here that is still a decent number of riders. This year the ride was a tad over 180kms (111 miles) Never got rained on hard and it was a warm rain so not a big deal. There was only 2 really nice bikes to show up for the event and those are in picture number 1. The only other machine that showed up that was of any note was a Polaris Indian Trike.
   The best part to note here is that the rider of said trike is from Redbridge about 30 mins up the highway and in his garage is a 2003 Kawasaki Drifter 800. So being a nice guy I did extend an invitation to him to Attend Rendezvous in July.
   The rest of the field of motorcycles your normal variety of pretty stock bikes the odd BMW, tons of H-D's that looked and sounded the same.
   I made reference to a person riding with us for the first time that some of these people I only talk to them during rides and only see them in the summer time, yet there is a bonding friendship from attending these events. 
   So my group had the luck to see a young bull Moose with a very nice set of antlers in full velvet, and then near the end of the day, I saw something in the ditch as I was passing it and had a HUGE black bear come up and across the highway between myself and the second rider in our group, who forgot his fatigue of his first group ride like this.....lol......
   I also won in the silent auction a $250 gift certificate for powder coating......lol.......

Yea, that fairing is definitely much more "Victory-ish" than "Indian-ized"  IMO.   Not a fan, really, it seems at odds with the styling on the rest of the bike.
