Gage and Crew, Day 3
Day Three: Our boys on the road, Neale Bayly (left), Dennis Gage (center)
and Sam Gage stop at, appropriately enough, a classic diner in Evans, Georgia.

This just in from our man Neale Bayly, who’s riding a 1968 Moto Guzzi V7 along with Dennis Gage (1969 BMW R69S) and Gage’s son, Sam (1973 BMW R75/5), on a 1000-mile tour to St. Augustine, Florida, for the 10th Annual Riding Into History classic motorcycle show. The trip will form the sixth episode of Gage’s award-winning show, Trippin’ on Two Wheels, airing on SPEED TV, and we’ll run an exclusive article on the ride after it wraps up: Neale writes:

“Day three started at the Fieldstone Farm Inn. Let's just say bizarre with a Capital Weird and leave it at that. Dennis was in rare form and we roared off into the a misty morning and a quick gas stop. Must have got the pills right, I'd say. By third gear I had my Mojo working, Dennis' was grinning profusely behind his mustache, which was completely horizontal at this point, and all was well in Westminster South Carolina. Today we had 280 miles in front of us so we had to push on and ride. No complaints from the boys, and Old Mother Goose was running along like a song. We made a few stops to film, and rolled on down to the flat lands. The roads are a little rougher in South Carolina, but the traffic was light and I for one was glad to just ride.

“Lunch was another riot when we found a diner in Evans. It didn't take three minutes to have all the waitresses out posing on the bikes and Dennis signing autographs. It's a lot of fun traveling with a celeb. We ate meat loaf and had a hoot with our lovely hosts before blasting off into the sunset. Well, it was still early afternoon, but it sounds cool.
