“I lost a lot of my pictures due to a very pissed off woman some years back,” David notes, earning him Riverside Green Veteran Status, “but here’s at least one picture of the old man (me) and his Sabre on a solo ride from Oregon to Wenatchee, WA. Looking north towards the Cascade mountains, just past Ellensburg, WA in May of 2009.”
I love to see these old Sabres out on the road; David identifies this one as an 1100 (V65).
Bonus now-for-something-completely-different shot after the jump.
“So here’s a little larger, non-motorcycle vehicle from 2007 when I worked in Portland, OR on this thing. It had juuuuust entered service with the ill-fated Evergreen Airlines. It sure looked a lot better after the paint job. Before it was painted, it was quite hideous looking. The main part of the hull is unpressurized, with the 2-piece, aft pressure bulkhead just behind door 1 there. I have a mill shaving of the very first bulkhead, perpetuated in a Lucite block, at my desk. It’s totally worthless, but the project it represents was totally fun. Except going to Taipei a couple of times, which wasn’t all that fun.”
You couldn’t have any fun in Taipei? Was this a soul brother too beaucoup situation?
