New Years .. The Ride That Didn't Happen! I loaded up my trusty
Triumph and headed to Costa Mesa on the afternoon of the 31st ..
figured to take in the annual New Years Run. New Years was fun at
Tim and Janis’ pad with the usual game of trivial pursuit, it was great to
see Larry and Jen. Vic Sucker came in from Arizona with his new
motor home! Tom hart was present with virtually all his relatives! A
great time indeed.
Morning rolled around and the only bike that showed up was Tom Hart ..
typical .. Tom is the most die hard rider in the world. He’d show up in a
blizzard! Hobo John brought Jim Cameron over for a visit. Jim is one of
the last of the original Boozefighters alive today. The reason I didn't ride
was entirely Tims fault. The Graber fridge in the garage was overstocked ..
and I mean overstocked!
12 o’clock rolls around .. 1 o’clock rolls around .. all of a sudden it's 2:15
in the morning and Tim is off to the jacuzzi. What the hell .. talk about a
bad influence. Shame, shame. By 9:30, I'm usually sound asleep.
Needless to say, by morning I was hung over and just flat exhausted.
By the time I got home I had a fever 101! I think Tim rode with Tom back
up to Long Beach, but I'm not sure as by this time I'd taken ill and was
bedridden .. all brought on by the goings on at the Graber household!
Shame .. shame .. shame
