Every Oct when I stay in VV & Calistoga, I check to see what is new. Seems a waste for just one spectator, group $$ should make this easy.

It seems that every time Michael Nieman runs the large aircraft engine outside his motorcycle rental shop in St. Helena, he’s putting his life on the line.

“I’m scared. Something always happens. That thing will kill ya’,” says Nieman before firing up his Pratt & Whitney R-4360 engine ...

The sound is deafening. The wind from the prop is strong enough to blow someone’s back up against a wall. He’s had to chain the engine to his business to keep it from traveling across the street. During a recent run, Nieman caught his hand on fire while trying to prime the engine with gasoline. He admits that wasn’t as bad as the time a fireball from the engine set his roof on fire.
... I've got $20 to maybe see that ...

... thanks, Bill, would love to catch up with
you and find some of those small roads above
Vacaville or run Reiff/Rayhouse ...

... Lake Solano was one of those fun moments
for me when I recognize a place from a ride report ...
guess I usually just take Pleasant Valley Road to Hwy 128 ...

... super glad to have found
Hedgerow Farms, thanks for the tip!
