Usually this heading refers to bikes. Well, there IS a bike, but this posting is to introduce Peter Walker who is our new intern. He’ll be at the Museum every Saturday, soaking up all the information he can about vintage motorcycles. He’s a computer science major at CSUMB and is helping with our website and sale/trade program to help us upgrade the collection.
The bike, by the way, is a Kawasaki Ninja 300.

Came for a visit after their breakfast ride this morning, 01/03/15. It was a perfect day!
Andy Gilbert and Danny Gottfried stopped by the Museum today, Dec. 28, 2014. Andy’s bike, the orange one, is a 1972 Kawasaki 500 H1B.
Danny’s is the red one. It’s a 1976 KH500.
Is this gorgeous or what? Adonis Taylor has been shopping for several months for the perfect bike, and he finally found it and brought it by the Museum Nov. 23. It’s a cafe style Moto Guzzi in really cherry condition.
Frank brought his beautiful BMW by on Sat., Nov. 2. Two-year restoration on this 1973 R-75 “Toaster” includes period bags. Sounds as good as it looks! His next project is a Bonneville.
They chose one of Pacific Grove’s outstanding autumn days to visit the Motorcycle Museum, and though they scattered here and there to eat breakfast and check out the shops, we gathered enough of them together to take a quick picture. There are nearly 800 members in this San Jose group! Great people, and an interesting club! Check them out online at http://www.meetup.com/FourCornersMotorcycleClub/ and there are some pictures on the website of their visit.
Purchased in Enumelan, Washington. Beautiful tan/black paint job!
The Scout leader called and wanted to visit on a Monday. I’m happy to open up for groups and tourists who can’t visit on the weekends! They had a good time, and a few more tourists slid in behind them so a great time was had by all!
Craig Vetter, a legend for his fairings and aerodynamic designs — including the Terraplane sidecar — came by on a prototype scooter. He says he won’t be improving it, that it’s perfection as it sits. And who are we to argue with him? See his accomplishments at http://craigvetter.com
Matt, Ashley, and their daughter, Daisy, came down from Vacaville with Ashley’s parents to visit the Aquarium and the Motorcycle Museum. They got Passports at Iron Steed in Vacaville and got them stamped by Yours Truly, there photobombing in front of the Museum.
Steve and Jennifer Rossi, local folks, came by the Museum today on a brand new gunmetal gray Vespa. Old sailors such as I am like that color!
