7th Annual Renegade Toy Run. Rained a lot on Friday, but it cleared up enough so we had a pretty good day of riding. A little cool. I think the high was only 57. Our route was a little different this year. We went through Davis and up 113 to get to the Woodland Fairgrounds. Only obstacle on the way was a bag of clothes in the #2 lane as we approached Davis. Overall, it was a good 80 mile day. Even though the crowd was light at the beginning of the day, it seemed like they all showed up just before we took off at 11am. Some of the people I talked to said they wanted to wait until it warmed up a little before arriving. And in the end, it looked like there were a lot of people that showed up....eventually. :)

Picked up Fonzi around 9am. It was really cold. Arrived at Renegade Classics around 9:20 and we were able to park in the first row of bikes. There were not a lot of bikes here yet. As soon as we pulled up, Fonzi's bike started gathering a crowd as he was wiping off the morning dew.

Also had my required hot link.

Even as it approached 10am, there was only one row of bike parking taken up.

Two weeks before, Renegade Classics had a sale going on. Nichole flew up for the day, so we decided to go check it out. We looked around and got some pics with the Renegade Classics models. This one is a very nice Indiana Jones.

 

Dark Angel was actually at the toy run this year too. She was heading up to an event near Cache Creek to sign calendars and stuff.
