Poker Run for Orange Senior Center

Sunday-September 19, 2010 my first time riding in a poker Run for the Orange Senior Center fund raiser.  I stopped in a few days earlier to pay my entry fee and as I walk in they asked me if I was there for the lunch they serve to seniors in town.  NO, I'm here to register for the motorcycle Poker Run..."Oh, OK".  After all, I do qualify by age I imagine. That's me and the back of my vest.
Orange Chapter 230 meets at our Best Buy parking lot to ride over for the start of the Poker Run.  A Poker Run is basically riding a predetermined route with 3-4 stops and at each stop you pick a card and who ever has the best poker hand at the end wins a prize.  I never win but it's a nicely organized ride around the area and we stop at 3 places, Lifestyle Cycles, Cook's Corners, the Newport Lexus dealer then back to the Senior Center for lunch.  First time for me at the Lexus dealer and what a show room.  More like a museum or very elegant hotel lobby.  I recommend you buy a Lexus just to get to wander around the place.

Total ride is just over 115 miles and we go from very warm inland to cool coastline routes.
