The oily bird catches the worm
Winter is hanging on for dear life in the Pacific Northwest. Yes, the days are longer and the temperatures warmer during the day, but a light dusting of snow can still greet you in the morning. Luckily for Tacoma’s Firkin SC, the snow stayed away Saturday, the occasion of their monthly group ride.
The group gathered for breakfast, then crossed the Tacoma Narrows to Gig Harbor.
Firkin Dan led the group to a friend’s place, which houses a large collection of interesting odds and ends.
Lots of odds and ends. Lots and LOTS of odds and ends. Most of the items date from before WWII.
Lots of antique motorcycles, too. The bike above is one of several early Harley-Davidsons.
Indian is well-represented, too.
Pierce-Arrow was a leading maker of luxury touring cars in the early 20th century. Maybe you’ve heard of them. Did you know the company also made motorcycles? Notice the engine in this one, which is from the same time as the Harley.
These, OTOH, were not part of the collection.
It was then time to head for the Flotation Device for libations and noms. Firkin Karen is feeding the troll. Or whatever it is.
