STAR Ranch BBQ and fund raiser

Star Ranch is located above the 91 Freeway just west of the Green River exit.  I say above because the ranch site is way on top of a real winding, hair-pin, twisting road that any motorcyclist would find difficult.  As a matter of fact one rider did not make it all the way up on this ride and took a drop nearly standing still but still incuring some damage to parts.
This Bar-B-Cue is a fund raising event for the Orange Senior Center and also our chapter ride for the month of June.  It was misty out and after conversations with another member, just decided to drive the car.  When I arrived at the Best Buy parking lot, naturally everyone else came via motorcycle.  I just said heck with it and stuck with the car.  Even take the car up to the ranch instead of going back home and getting on the Road Star, age has it's benefits.  Good food, cooked by Pres. Terry and also Keith and Scott helping out.

There are several STAR chapter in attendance to help support the Senior Center and all had a great time.
