Sept. 2022 Bike of the Month
« on: September 06, 2022, 05:12:25 PM »
This one is kind of sad as the owner passed away while riding it.

I never got to see his bike in person nor meet him. We did have a few discussions when I was out west with my daughter on the Sabre. Wish I could have at least shook his hand.

There are a lot of ways to get out on the road, he certainly chose an interesting one.

Rest in Peace GOR.

If any of you old timers have any photos of the Gormobile, please post up

Now that is an interesting BOM!

He must have been quite handy to create that machine.

Boy, that's pulling one out of the archives.

That bike was a testament to creativity and determination. To build that machine with limited use of one hand and actually ride it on long trips  :thumb

I love seeing pictures of this machine/bike. Great choice Michael.

I have more somewhere but this is the only one I can find from our ride when Boogity was in town to pick up his bike (Blackbird?).

This was at the parking lot of Mary's peak. Highest point in the coast range I think. Just outside of Philomath Oregon. Shitty resolution. I'll try to find the others.
