Very cool picture of some of the BFMC out for a ride. Stopping off for a beer. If any of you are like me and I know you are, after you are done oogling the bikes, you look deeper into the picture. I like to check out the fashions, both of the bikes and the riders. You know, make sure my "period" bike is correct. Make sure the clothing we are making at NLAMC is correct. But after that I look past the foreground and try and identify the location, the business, etc. Well this one paid off for me. As I'm looking at the hand written caption around the photo, two things caught my eye. "Rockstore" and "Mint Cyn" I immediately said to myself, "cool the rock store. a SoCal landmark we all know it." Then upon looking closer, I realized it was not the Calabasas Rock Store, but it sure looked familiar. Then there was "Mint Cyn." Wait I know Mint Cyn. There's a road around my house called that and then it clicked. The area of Mint Cyn is now called Agua Dulce. It's just down the road from my place. And the building is "Le Chen" a Fancy French restaurant on Sierra Hwy. (Yes a French place called "The Dog!") It's still there. Original building not too much has changed. So yes, you can bet your ass I'll be riding over there and taking a picture in front of the place and park my UL where heroes of the past did the same and I'll soak up some of the karma.
