Last year's weather was wet and cold and still it was a great ride. This year's weather could not have been much more close to perfect: sunny skies and cool breezes. I got there shortly after 8:00 AM, parked my Suzuki V-Strom Sidecar Rig whom I call Vikki and walked about admiring the other rigs and motorcycles which had shown up.
The fanciest rig was this massive Honda Goldwing with a rather wide Daytona Sidecar
I bet two small people could sit side by side inside this sidecar
Another Goldwing with another Daytona Sidecar
A somewhat more appropriately sized sidecar on this Goldwing
Fellow Uralista Dana's GS with a California Sidecar Rig
A classic Harley Davidson with Sidecar
These two scooters made it through the ride, one of them ridden by one of the "Stars"
of the PBTF, Colin. A young man who's a brain tumor survivor.
Spat (far right) and I spotted these two gents conversing at this nearly brand new
Ural Patrol, with only 1300Km on it! Spat's Ural is also white but a 2008.
My first closeup and personal look at a "leaner" sidecar rig by Armec.
You ride it like a regular motorcycle and no worries about "flying the chair" unintentionally.
I think this year's turnout was bigger in terms of number of motorcycles that showed up. The large preponderance of motorcycles was Honda Goldwings, the local Goldwing chapters and Honda have supported the PBTF since 1991 in the strongest way and today was no exception.
Fellow Uralistas Dana (dirtydr) and John (Spat) also showed up in their rigs. Dana with his 1150GS Tug with California sidecar and John with his white 2008 Ural Patrol.
