Meeting Recap - November 2020

Saturday the 21st, six riders met for our first meeting since May (Larry, Mel, Dave, Richard, Dan, and BobK – Happy Birthday, Bob – thought you could get away without us knowing, huh!) Since recent mornings started in the 30’s, we expected to meet inside. But on this glorious day, the sun was shining and headed toward 70, so… they opted for a socially-distanced meeting in the lower parking area. Dan rode his ‘68 Triumph Trophy 250 which we thoroughly enjoyed oogling. After that, we began with a devotion about our world at war – spiritual warfare – and how we can prepare ourselves for that daily challenge.

We discussed possibilities for upcoming winter rides (which we generally keep to slower backroads and later starts). One promising idea is to visit a large private motorcycle collection in the Homer area (E of Gainesville) owned by the Campbell family (formerly of Hourglass BMW and Triumph). I plan to make contact with them and see what I can arrange. A couple other good suggestions were visiting a new vintage car museum in the Cartersville area (but may be spring or summer before they open) and visiting any local aviation fly-ins we can find. Keep the suggestions coming.

After the meeting, we rode to Ball Ground’s “Burger Bus” (downtown, can’t miss it). And yes, it’s actually a burger joint with the only indoor seating inside a 40’s-era Ford Transit bus! But with such a beautiful day, most opted for the outdoor picnic tables.

Their menu has some very creative takes on the classic cheeseburger. Our guys really liked it and we’ll surely return. Check ‘em out.

Stay tuned for our next ride. With the holidays coming, it may be somewhat “off schedule”, but keep those batteries charged so you don’t miss out!
