Watching history ... Marc Marquez wins 10 in a row, joining Mick Doohan and Agostini in the history books ...

Editor-in-Chief, and came across this pic,
which demonstrates how "safe" motorcycle polo was
back in the day ...

see you at the DNA Lounge,

the SFMC, the Oakland Motorcycle Club and motorcycle polo ...

Hey G!

Thanks for the heads up!

I have to go visit Jenny and Mike on Monday to pick up some '73 Tiger parts ... I'll bring them a poster and say it's from you ...

see you soon,
-- John A

Getting ready for the 110th Aniversary Party ...


IMG_20141003_125757863 by San Francisco Motorcycle Club, on Flickr

We're in the process of sprucing up the clubhouse for the big party ...

This is Jack Young putting a coat of varnish on our wood floor ... this floor was originally installed by Jack's father when the club purchased the old blacksmith's shop on Folsom Street in 1947 ...

Jack's parents were members of the club for decades, and Jack's brother, Bob, recently served as president ... Jack's nephew, Matt, is currently a member, and Matt's children are club "mascots" (a mascot is a child of a member who can be voted into the club on their 18th birthday without having to go through the prospective member process) ...

So, (if you are counting) that's four generations of the Young family who have been SFMC members ...

see you at the DNA Lounge on 10/25!

Hi John - Very cool story about Jack Young. Not sure I can make the ride, but hope to ride up to help celebrate the Club. The 49 Mile Ride isn't happening this year, so hope to see a lot of cool vintage bikes and also meet some more BARFers.

Hey Akiko,

Sorry I missed you yesterday, but I think I saw your bike!

Hope you made the party and had a good time, otherwise I'm sure
I'll see you at another vintage event soon ... I'm hoping to get to Thee Parkside Wednesday night ride in one of these months ...

See you in the parking lot,
-- SFMCjohn

We were having fun with our socks, and the kids always enjoy the big-wheels we have in the clubhouse for their entertainment ...

Here's a pic of the clubhouse before the big anniversary party yesterday ...
we really put a lot of work into the old place to make it look its best ...

I'll try to post up some pics in a couple of days once we get some
posted up to our website ... I heard we had about 300 bikes on the
ride through the city, and I saw a bunch of cool old
vintage bikes at the DNA ...

Thanks to all the BARFers who came out to help us celebrate
110 years of motorcycling in San Francisco!

see you around the campfire,
-- SFMCjohn

Hey, John.

Thanks for the shindig. Good times! Nice of the guys from Yonkers to have traveled over.

Hey Marcoose,

Thanks for making the scene, it really turned out far better than we had hoped for ... The Yonkers guys are a ton of fun, we had a pajama party at the clubhouse last night to save them a few bucks on hotel rooms ...

Ace Cafe Rob and the SFMC will be showing MotoGP at the clubhouse today at 4pm for Moto3, 5pm for Moto2 and 6pm for MotoGP ... I'll be rooting for "old man" Rossi to win and Cal to finish, ha!

see you at the fountain,
-- SFMCjohn
