Rhodie is actually called Rhododendron Festival which is held in Florence, Oregon. (love the beach!)
This is a family fun time festival and many people come from all over to this place.
For the bikers, it is a time to get together and party..There really is no other way to explain it..
They also represent different branches of those who serve this country.. (the patch on the knee above, love it!)
Here they come....
This is the parade of bikes.. When several of the groups come to town.. Nothing specific.. just seems to end up being a parade..
It starts with the Free Souls, and then you will have a mix of different clubs and groups..
Really a site to see all these bikes coming into town at one time..
There on the far left is Mike.. I didn't realize I got him until I was editing these..
This guy below lives in Florence. For years he sits at this window and watches and waves at the people going by.
Todd up top and Robert below..
Calvin is a Free Soul, but I knew him long before that.. He has always been special to me.. my knight in shining armor.. He would ride with me so I wouldn't have to ride alone.. I didn't like riding with a large group very close and as fast as they go..
He didn't mind riding with a newbie.. It was really good to see him!!!
Hi Mark!!! You are looking good here!!!
Here we have Robert.. (affectionately called Wilson by everyone..)
(I will get the honor of photographing their wedding this August!!!)
I have many more pics I wanted to add but it seems I am at my fill of space on this blog.. I will have to post more when I set up my web page..
