Yous guys ever heard of the “Harbortown Bobber?” Yep, it’s his!

• '69 Triumph 650 Bonneville “The Harbortown Bobber”
• '76 CB750F
Legally ordained in 2 states, this man answers to no one. When he's not dusting heads and keeping the peace, you can usually find him behind his Nikon.
• ‘71 Honda CL450 Scrambler (Lil’ Red)
• '72 BMW R75/5 (Bella)
Born and raised on vintage BMW bikes, he has been riding his father’s ’76 R75/6 since birth…literally. We'll always love and miss you brother, we ride for you.
•’68 BMW R60/2 (Maggie May)
•’76 BMW R75/6 (The Old Girl)
•’76 BMW R90/6 (Marilyn)

With a pure heart of gold, not since Bronson Pinchot has there been a better European Import. Hardly a stranger to many a botched expression, this crazy Latvian knows how to ride and wrench on bikes with the best of them. Just be sure to bring your pocket translator.
• '73 Ducati 750GT
• '75 Ducati 900SS
This guy is never afraid to use himself as a human shield and would gladly throw himself and one of his fine Bavarian two wheeled beauties onto the tracks of a southbound train from Stuttgart to Munich if it meant protecting the VVMC in traffic. He's also been known to take his R60 for a quick bar room spin.
• 1965 BMW R60/2
The talented…yet polar opposite of “Juilliard Trained” actor from the many straight to DVD classics such as Orgy of Blood, Kissing Strangers, and Ninja Apocalypse always knows how to bring the party.
• 1976 Honda CB 550
At a towering 5'3", this guy will block an intersection with the efficiency of a much larger (and probably smarter) man. A moto guru in his own right, he loves his vintage iron almost as much as his well manicured facial hair.
• '72 Honda 350
•’73 Honda CB500
A Black Belt Pixel Pusher. A Digital Benihana. We have no idea what this guy really does, and we're scared to find out... which is probably why we've designated him as our resident "3rd Sunday Ride" sweeper. Keep your distance kids.
• '78 Yamaha SR500
Our resident sex toy expert and 80’s karaoke champ.
He not only rides vintage, but raps vintage in senior citizen “tribute” band Geezer and is the frontman of VVMC house band Cougar Getting, Jr.
• '75 Honda CB550
• '70 Moto Guzzi Ambassador
Sporting his late grandpa's 1971 CB500, he's our redheaded step child from the mid-west. Retired undertaker, seasoned guitar tickler & professional air-drummer. Guitarist & head of nasty guitar facing of VVMC House band, Cougar Getting, Jr.
• 71' Honda CB500
On any given Wednesday, you can find this one of a kind mad man flying up the nearest closed freeway ramp. He'll most likely be cruising through, fuzz hot on his tail. Guitarist and designated smoke signaler of VVMC House band, Cougar Getting, Jr.
