The 555

I'd love to try this... These guys are kill me.

The ultimate dumbass endurance event of 2008!

Welcome to the 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 (This was tossed out the window and it became 'No Man Left Behind')
  5. No Interstates
  6. Portland, Oregon bound

Interesting idea. Not for me, but to each their own.

I wish I would have gone to Beaulahland to meet them; I would have bought them a few rounds. That is the name of the bar they met at shortly after arriving in Portland, and only a couple blocks from my home.

I guess if I don't put any money at all into our new old CB350 Four acquistion it'd qualify for that insanity.

Those bikes look like old war-horses, lined up like that. Not for me, thanks.

I'm guessing most of those bikes were Honda's with a few BMW's. Scott's CB350 four would have easily made the trip.
