Mrs. Wick's Ride

Ten of us rode over to Gaston for lunch.  After lunch we decided to burn off some of the calories we'd picked up by pushing Art Adrianson's Harley through the streets of Gaston.  Actually, Art's Harley wouldn't start and after a few attempts at push starting, Art took the battery connections off and scraped the corrosion off the terminals.  His bike started right up after that.  Good thing, as we old men were running out of "gas" during the push starting attempts! :)

We were joined today by Derrill Royal and his Honda Night Hawk:

 Derrill, at 83 years young, is our oldest rider. 

(Edit-I'm sad to say that Derrill pasted away this spring.  It was a privilege to have known him.)

Also joining us today was Jack McClain and his Honda Goldwing:

We were especially happy to see Jack as he's been going through some health issues and is doing better.  We hope he can join us more often.

Here's a picture of our vehicles parked outside the Gaston Restaurant:

Three riders went home after lunch and seven of us continued onward to the east side of Indiana on IN 28.  We rode through Albany and Ridgeville to US 27 where we turned south to Winchester and Mrs. Wick's Pie Shop.  After pie and coffee, we headed west back around Muncie and home.

131 miles today.  Beautiful, sunshiny, day!

Riding today were:  Charley Thomas, Larry Davis, Larry Burke, Larry Miller, Derrill Royal, John Nave, Jack McClain, Merle Combs, Art Adrianson, and Billy Niverson.
