555


The rules are simple:

1. 1975 or older motorcycle
2. Can only spend $500 TOTAL on purchase and restoration of bike
3. 500cc or less engine size
4. Every man for himself
5. No Interstates
6. Portland, Oregon bound

The 555 looks like it's going to be a heck of a road trip!

If you're doing this trip, you've got a place to crash, with a beer and a meal.

Midway Magic is still alive!

Sounds like a good ol' fashion race. I like it!

Looks like it is mostly over and done with. Also looks like it was more "Road trip!" then an actual race. Nothing wrong with that. Looks like some friends had the type of adventure they'll be able to tell their kids and grandkids about someday. I'm jealous.

PS: I'm typing this from a motel in the shadow of Mt.Washington, NH and our motorcycles are parked out front. :P

Damn... I wish I had kept my Honda from college. 1980 CM400E twin cylinder 3 valve. Changed oil twice in 5 years. 19K miles in one summer.

Freaked the living daylights out of my parents when I told them about it years later.

Gave it away to a fraternity brother after I graduated.

Don't be afraid of small CC bikes.
