    Legends Event

    Legends and Heroes 2014 
    Really happy at the great turnout. Larry started off the weekend organizing a great Fan Fest at Sun Honda! Then on to Legends and Heroes at Thunder Valley where Scott and Marlin got us a great location. Take a look at the amount of traffic that came by. Many good stories exchanged and hopefully a few new members.



    I drowned the bike 3 times, good fun
