It's possible to still have a good time despite all the lockdowns.

We headed over to on the club member's house and had quite a turnout. Weather was perfect and there was a wide variety of vehicles but obviously a lot of Nortons.



Meeting up at the cul de sac before heading up to Washington State (Vancouver, Washington is right across the Columbia River from Portland so it's almost Oregon...).







This bike is from one of our newest members. I have a feeling he may lurk here too. See if you can spot all the goodies on this beautiful bike.



The non-Nortons had to park across the street. Side of shame and all.







I think this stroked 440 had more horsepower than all the bikes combined.

Fantasic day and everyone had a great and safe time.

If you guys all rode off together, I bet the rolling British thunder was magnificent.

We didn’t ride off together but we did have five in our pack when we arrived. Apparently my bike is a bit louder than the rest, maybe it’s because I wind it up more.

And the rest ??
We didn’t go door to door with a survey. Apparently the previous owner of the house built hot rods there so I suspect even a bevy of rowdy Nortons was quieter.

Y’all seem awful worried about neighbors, especially you Brits. Do you often have problems?

I think the word is ‘considerate’ not ‘worried’....

Dave,
I was born in Portland and grew up in Seattle. “Vancouver is almost Oregon“ doesn’t hurt a bit.
