No-Pork ride 12-19

We ride to No-Pork. What kind of name is No-Pork for a motorcycle repair shop? It means no HOGs or no Harleys. They just work on metric motorcycles and sell metric motorcycle parts and service. The one time I had them replace a rear tire, I wound up with a broken muffler bracket and had to buy a replacement, the original was scratched previously anyway.

I took Lynne, Barry, Chuck and Stan on a long scenic ride out La Palma Ave. all the way to Gypsum Canyon road and then on the 91 Freeway. I think they enjoyed the diversion instead of going on the slow moving 91.

Stan wanted a couple publicity photos for his many fans so we did a photo shoot while waiting for Barry, Lynne and Chuck to arrive. Notice the subtle differences is his classic motorcycle rider looks.

No-Pork is a motorcycle business in need of a total makeover in my opinion. It's in back of another business and was basically a garage behind the business in front and not easy to see. They took the garage, added some store space and have a two car garage size repair area.This is the world-wide headquarters for No-Pork, it could take all of 3 minutes to take in the entire inventory and building.

Lynne and Barry scored several fleece jackets for $20 each plus some other goodies, so it turns out to be a shopping experience for Lynne and we were just her escorts to help Barry load up his saddlebags to bursting limits with stuff.

We all had burritos at Miguel's in Corona and ready to ride off in several different directions.

While on the freeway heading back home, a driver in the car on my right rolls his window down and gives me a thumbs up pointing at my motorcycle as if to say "nice looking motorcycle" now that is just amazing. I give a wave back and off we go.
