1st Place Trophy

Postby wally » Sun Aug 05, 2012 9:51 pm



Last week our town of Yale, Michigan held their annual Bologna Festival. Yale's claim to fame for the Bologna that's made here, anyway the festival has an Outhouse race (though this year it was cancelled due to the storm that came through) a Bologna Ring toss contest, Cardboard Canoe race, Parade and a Car/Motorcycle show, oh and a Bologna King and Queen are crowned. Well I entered my bike in the motorcycle show and came home with the 1st Place trophy in the Vintage bike class, how about that? And that's no baloney!

Well Beaver here's a closeup picture of the trophy, sorry it's too tall (32") to get any closer.

I would congratulate you, but we know the Wing did all the work!

I still have a very hard time putting a wing in the "vintage" class. The oldest wing is still more advanced than most other modern bikes in my mind. Congrats to you and your wing...
