Went to visit a few friends for a few hours at Trophys on sat and show off the KZ (which everyone liked a lot) also helped pack some boxes and load shelves onto trucks for their relocation, during which time I was told about "Mods vs. Rockers" ride in SoCal at the end of this month. First time I've heard of it,(hermit) but sounds like a blast!

Anyone here on the forum attending this year?

If you yourself are building an older bike and can see it through till you're riding it, that's proof you have patience.

I was out North of Bakersfield in the mountains when I saw a MODs run with hundreds of those dolled up scooters . It was really fun to watch them all with their fancy clothes and more lights than a airport runway. :lol:
They were very nice and organised as I stopped at a bike wreck ( Not one of them ). They had a Mod paramedic crew with them
and Im retired EMT Fire Chief and we fixed the down rider up and had him packaged and stable by the time the local EMS ? Fire crews showed up.
I know this will spark comments as the downed rider was on a HD Fatboy with apehangers that were so tall he could barely reach them.
He was at a party store when I earlier rode up and asked him how that thing rode? He said great . But 30 minutes later he was my patient.
Anyway the Mods were on a huge run and were a great help

Just watch Quadrophenia. Especially if you like the WHO. I'm surprised the Moto Club I sometimes ride with has never sponsored a local ride with the scooters. The 50th anniversary of the riots just passed in 2014. Seems more people are taking an interest.

Current project 76 KZ900 (This was a Vetter model)

Wikipedia Mods versus Rockers to get an idea of where it all started (ocean-side fights in England, not the recent bike events).
It was all really just hooliganism.

"The Mod Squad" were neither mods, nor really a squad... discuss.

I understand all that. I never liked the Mod Squad, glorified narcs to me. I was talking about the current ride event. Seems to be little interest.
