Where: 2194 Folsom Street at 18th

Why: Entry to the movie is FREE. Entry to the clubhouse is FREE. We may order some pizza again, which unfortunately won't be free. Did I mention they have a fountain so you can have a soda while you watch the flick?


In the spirit of the season (love, goodwill towards your fellow man, etc.) we will have a donation jar out and we will be collecting money for Glide Memorial Church's Soup Kitchen if you wish to contribute a few bucks. They feed over 2,000 people per day.

How much?: Again, this is totally free. Our goal is to get together, have some fun and raise some money for charity.

Thanks for reading, hope to see you there.
Here is the BARF Social Gatherings thread:

Smile Our 113th Riding Season ...

The weekend near October 25th, 2017, the San Francisco Motrorcycle Club will celebrate our 113th anniversary ...

Our Season opener will be Sunday March 12th Kick Stands Up 10am. We will be chasing wild flowers.

Mark your calendars for future rides!!

April 28th – 30th Indian Rick’s Pioneer Days Campout in Smartsville. Suggested donation is $30. Includes Ride on Friday and Saturday, Dinner Saturday night (bring a side dish), bonfire, and live entertainment by The Cash Prophets and other musical Guests, Breakfast Sunday morn-
ing. Also, Smartsville will be having its Pioneer Days party which includes a tractor/hay bale tour of the hydraulic mine in town. There should be lots of vintage bikes in attendance ...

May 19th – 21st (Friday - Sunday) for the Pasadena MC's 110th. They will be closing down the street in front of City Hall on Saturday May 20th and we’ll ride home Sunday May 21st. Points awarded for being present on Saturday the 20th. Todd has offered to connect SFMC members with PMC members for lodging if you need, as well as finding a local hotel. Unfortunately, this ride conflicts with the OMC Sheet Iron, but PMC only turns 110 once.

August 21st is The Eclipse Run. Looking for Hotels in Madras Oregon. Apparently, they have been booked for this event for 5 years. He called a KOA 40 miles away. They are fully booked. Then he called a Motel 6 60 miles away. They have a 3-night minimum for this event. What does that mean? That means the eclipse runs from the Pacific to the Atlantic, so your Road Captain is open to suggestions. Sounds like we'll be sleeping in the dirt around a campfire on some public land in eastern OR ...

MotoGP should be returning to the SFMC on Sunday nights in 2017 with the Round 1 Quatar event on 3/26 ... doors should open at 4 pm to show Moto3 with MotoGP at about 6pm ...

Of course, the SFMC has weekly meetings every
Thursday night at 18th & Folsom ...
BARFers and motorcyclists always
welcome!

I booked a campground at Crater Lake last year. 170 miles & 3 hours away from Madras. Plan on getting on the road at 6:00 am to drive up. Watch the eclipse and then drive back to Crater Lake. Once in a life time event for me. We will be in our truck camper for this trip.

Back tire - Isn't that a Gripster? or sometimes referred to as a "Slipster".
Appropriate I suppose, for a tracker.

The 113th Season Opener ride report by the
SFMC's 2017 Road Captain:

"We had 30 who came out for our Season Opener today including all 4
prospects. Coffee at 9, ride at 10 after a picture and key searching.

We slabbed down 280 to Edgewater and Canada Rd. Up 84 to Kings Mountian
road. Lots of bicycles, redwoods, and a few slow cars. At Skyline we met
up with Clay and stopped for a smoke break. Down a gravelless Tunitas
Creek to highway 1 south and Stage Road South. At Pescadero Susi-Q joined
the group and we took Cloverdale Road past Butano State Park to Gaza
Creek Road and then south on 1 to The Highway 1 Brewery.

I had let them know we were coming with a group of 25 at noon and they
added additional wait staff for us and hit the ground running when we
showed up. They serve good bugers and good beer. We all ate and fueled
up by 1:30. Kind of amazing for such a large group.

From there half
the group went thier own way and the other half followed the Road Captain
past the Pigeon point lighhouse (best wildflow viewing) and up Pescadero
Road to Alpine Road and then down Page Mill Road.

The Weather was perfect, Sunny but not hot. The group traveled along at a
spirited clip and overall all riders road with intent and purpose. The
group stayed together. We ended the ride at the clubhouse at 3 and
socialized for a few hours over beer, wiskey, and bubbly water.

Tucker, Ben and Darrell made destination "sua sponte".

High Points
===========
132 Benjamin Berliner
132 Darrell Scarlet
132 Dennis Casey
132 Kalle Hoffman
127 Diter Oviedo
120 Jimbo Bergquist
120 Robert Hanssen
117 Mel Enberg
115 Brian Holm
108 David Simpson
103 Eric Schiller

Kalle Hoffman
SFMC Road Captain"

The "High Points" tally at the end of the report
is one of two participation contests we'll celebrate
at the 2017 Awards Banquet at the end of the season ...

Club members get 5 points for showing up, 5 points
for showing up on a bike, and 2 points for
wearing member gear at Thursday night meetings
and official club rides ... top three get nice trophies ...

"Perfect Guest" is an Awards Banquet category for
SFMC non-members who attend all the official
club rides over the riding season (we love our guests!) ...

see you at
the fountain,

"In the American Class, Kalle Hoffman captured top honors with his art deco 1937 Indian Chief.

“I’ve had the bike for about eight years. I bought it as a project and restored it. It took me about three years to get the bike on the road. I got the bike on the road for the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge,” said Hoffman. His compelling back story provided further motivation to complete the restoration.

“The first civilian bike to cross the Golden Gate Bridge in 1937 was a 1937 Indian Chief and that bike was ridden by [AMA Hall of Fame racer and San Francisco Motorcycle Club life-member] Hap Jones. I’m in the San Francisco Motorcycle Club and it’s very close and dear to our group as far as that our group carries on this tradition. This year is the 80th anniversary of that bike and the Golden Gate Bridge so I decided to complete the bike this year to commemorate it."

"Curtis Stapleton of Lavish Lines and Pinstriping painted my bike. He's located in Sunnyvale. He put his heart and soul into the bike and it shows. I'm grateful. https://www.facebook.com/lavishlinespinstriping."
