Default 120 miles on the Tarmac and hill climbs

WOW!! I woke up to a completely blue sky on Saturday morning, and I woke the wife and said "Honey, I'm gonna ride to Port Angeles and watch the hill climbs" She said "so you don't want to spend time with the family?" I said "not today."

Anyway, 60 miles later I was there. I have never been to a hill climb, there were some pro's from Canada and Oregon, and it was awesome.

First picture: I had to stop halfway around the lake and take a bike picture. Man my but was already sore. And what was funny, a mile before I took this picture I saw a pillow on the side of the road and was laughing to my self that someone lost it out of the back of a boat or something, and then later I was wishing I would have stopped and threw it under my butt.[8D]

1957 Harley, the guy has been hill climbing for 40 years, he's 64 and still hitting it. What a cool bike.

It always looks half as steep in a picture that it really is, this hill has two steps that run up across cross roads, it was truly awesome to see these guys ride.

This guy was from Canada, I think his name is Jim Hanna from Victoria. He owns a motorcycle scrap and parts business.
