Ed. Note: The Single Overhead Cam Four/Forum, an online community devoted to Honda SOHC/4 bikes of the late 1960’s and 1970’s, has loosely organized a relay/rally ride that will triple-transect the lower 48 states and all Canadian Provinces. The ride began in mid-March and will continue into the early Fall. Learn more and join the ride when it passes your area

Jerry Griffin is the “papa” of this whole shindig ride. It was his big idea last fall to get a ride together for 2012. But it seemed such a good idea members of the SOHC/4 forum couldn’t wait. So here we are. There have been a lot of miles logged so far, and no one has logged more miles or endured worse riding conditions than Jerry himself.

Weather this time of year in Colorado is tricky. A couple weekends ago, Jerry, along with a couple other riders, put in some 1,100 miles to meet a rider in Utah. Crossing the continental divide, they braved snow treacherous conditions. The next weekend, well Monday, he and some others headed east out of Colorado to Topeka for a meeting with at Motorcycle Classics headquarters. It was all great fun over a couple days. But the return trip for Jerry, not so fun. Frankly, I don’t know how the guy does it. After encountering near 100 degree temperatures on the Kansas plains, here’s what greeted him back in his home state. Sometimes I wonder if bad weather just follows Jerry around.
