Huntington Beach, Calif. -
It seems like we may be rounding the Covid corner. Today we had an excellent meet on a
awesome summer afternoon. People showed up early and there were 51 bikes at 2:00.
John Zindler was helping me with the voting and counting, and he counted 77 bikes, but we had 85 votes
so I think he missed a few. Every month it's getting better.

Bike of the Month - Jeff McCoy
Congratulations to Jeff McCoy of Huntington Beach for winning Bike of the Month
with his 1930 Scott Flying Squirrel.
Jeff won the Bike of the Month plaque provided by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys. www.RussBrown.com.
Jeff has been a member of this group since it's inception, longer than me. He has a large collection
of bikes and always draws a crowd with whatever he brings. Last month he came in Second Place with
his 1975 Triumph Trident 750.
Jeff rarely sticks around long enough to be included in the vote, but he has won Bike of the Month
twice in the past:
November 2020 1975 Norton Commando 850
February 2019 1950 Norton ES2
Read all about Jeff's
1930 Scott Flying Squirrel on our Bike of the Month page.
Second Place - Ernesto Quiroga
Ernesto Quiroga of Long Beach took for Second place with his 1968 Ducati 350D.
Ernesto just finished the restoration of his Ducati. He has also been a member of this group
at least as long as I have and has won Bike of the Month four times in the past:
November 2018 1988 Laverda SFC 1000
May 2009 1961 Ducati 175 Sport
December 2007 1961 Aermacchi C 250cc
November 2007 1972 Ducati Desmo 450 SS
Third Place - Ken Morris
Ken Morris of Upland won Third place with his 1968 BMW R69US.
Ken bought this bike from Eugene Garcin (a seven time winner), and completely went through it
from the ground up. Originally black, Ken painted it in a rarer blue color. A quote from Eugene
today, "Ken has created a 100 point bike."
Like Jeff and Ernesto, Ken is also a multiple Bike of the Month winner:
August 2019 1968 BMW R60/2
July 2014 1970 Triumph Bonneville T120R
Thanks to everyone for showing up and making this another great event.
A special thanks to John Zindler for helping out with
the voting today. Debbie and Tom Hopkins were unable to attend today,
I look forward to seeing them again soon.
I'll see you all next month on July 11, 2021.
Keep On Ridin',
