March Vintage Bike OC Meet
Nimbus placard

Huntington Beach, Calif. - It was a beautiful afternoon here in HB today. Maybe the time change, maybe because it's the earliest in the month our turnout wasn't what I expected. Still a great meet with 74 bikes. The battle for Bike of the Month was intense with three bikes all within one vote of each other.

April 12th is Easter Sunday - No Official Meet
We will not have an official meet in April because the second Sunday is Easter. I'm sure there may be people who show up, but we'll offically be back in May.

Thanks to everyone for showing up and making this another great event. A special thanks to Debbie and Tom Hopkins for helping out with the voting today.

I'll see you in two months on May 10, 2020.

Keep On Ridin',
Joe Kagerer
