one fun thing about getting involved with your local AMA sweater club is the exposure you get to all sorts off fun things ...

SFMC member Slim Jim has been involved with Bonneville Speed Week for years on bikes and electric bikes and ICE (Suzuki powered) cars ... based on that experience he had an opportunity at the 2020 Speedweek to fill in as a replacement driver ... as I say, he started out on a single cylinder vintage Ducati and now sports the coveted Red Cap of a member of the 200mph Club ...


The "Twin-Scout" twin-enginned "Stroker" Indian Scout Bonneville "World Record Holder"

Congratulations to him on another speed record in the books ...

thanks for reading and posting guys!

unfortunately, here today to share sad news about Friend-of-the-SFMC, Mr Ralph Hudson:



from todayís SCTA press release:

Motorcycle Racer Ralph Hudson dies from Injuries Sustained in Bonneville Crash
Hudson, 69, had raced bikes almost his entire life.

Quote:
Motorcycle racer Ralph Hudson, current FIM World Record holder for the all-time fastest non-streamliner motorcycle at 297 mph, died from injuries suffered three weeks ago at Bonneville, according to a statement released by the family.

Hudson was competing for an SCTA (Southern California Timing Association) record at Bonneville Speed Week on August 14, 2020 when he suffered a crash after exiting the timed mile at a reported 252 mph.

A gust of wind sent him into a speed wobble Ė also known as a tank-slapper - from which he did not recover. Hudson was flown to Intermountain Medical Center in Salt Lake City, where he was initially stabilized in the ICU, but finally succumbed to his injuries on Sunday, September 6. He was 69 years old.
RIP, Ralph ...

Our club historian, Brian, has been working with the folks who put on the cool displays at the SFO airport for a pre-1920 motorcycle exhibit, and he has been poking around in our old scrapbooks and talking with citizens, and he presented the club with this pic at our weekly Covid Zoom business meeting last night.

Brain says the pic is the San Francisco Motorcycle Club's very first ride, taken in October, 1904 ... and I believe him.

Nice... love looking at the old school pictures.

Dressed for the ride meant something different back then.

we're very proud of our "Best Dressed Club" trophy in our trophy case from the exact Hollister AMA rally made famous
by the Life Magazine biker-riot article and Mr Brando's "The Wild One" ...

think we're getting prints made up, looking forward to see how they turn out and finding a spot on the garage wall for my copy ...

we have some cool bikes in the club, and here's an example of the latest cool bike that showed up on our club ride on Sunday:



it's a Honda NS400R:
Quote:
This Honda 3-cylinder two-stroke is a street racer replica of the machine Freddie Spencer took to the 500cc Grand Prix World Championship in 1983.

As one would expect from Honda in the 1980s, the NS400R was packed with high-tech features, had a build quality second to none and, most importantly, was the first Japanese production motorcycle with peerless handling, the little two-stroke laying the foundations for a new era in Japanese motorcycling, when specialist chassis builders were no longer needed to get the best out of Honda’s powerful engines.

Honda managed to translate the excellent handling of its Grand Prix machines into a road bike, while also smoothing out the twitchiness and sharpness from its racing manners.

The NS400R was a proper race replica built between 1985 and 1987 that used the interesting 90-degree engine configuration of Spencer’s championship machine, but with a “reversed” layout: two cylinders forward-facing and the middle cylinder vertical, a change no doubt made to accommodate road equipment like a starter motor, electrical system and airbox.


our friend and SFMC member, Eric, who owns SF Moto found it in VT and said "I've wanted one ever since I was in high school ..."





Eric rode the bike on our Sunday SFMC group ride, where our club historian, Brian, lead us on an interesting tour of historic grave markers in the cemeteries of Colma ... we had a pretty good turn out:



see you around the corner ...

Sweet little ring ding ding!

That picture will be easy to date as far as the year.

Good stuff John.

Colma... the City of Souls. Did you hit the one with the historical Cowboys and explorers in it?
Can't remember who it was... but I checked it a couple decades ago.
