Chilly Billy Memorial Run

This was the 5th annual Chilly Billy Poker Run.  I've got to say that it was a lot of fun.  The Rip City Riders Motorcycle Club sponsored the event raising money for Hospice by the Bay. 

The Poker run started at the local Harley dealer in Cotati, California.  The weather was overcast and cool, I was really surprised when I looked out and it was raining.  It rained for about 15 minutes, stopped and didn't rain again.  By afternoon the weather was clear and hot.

One of the stops on the poker run was at Pt.Reyes Station in Marin County. 

Last year the run ended up at Penngrove City Park.  This year the run ended up at the Petaluma Fairgrounds.  Several hundred bikes showed up, as well as custom cars and vendors.  The Raffle bike was a 2011 Street Glide, in denim black.  I sure would have liked to win that bike. 

There were a lot of cool bikes, not all Harley's.

In search of the bar

I would say that Rip City Riders hit a home run this year.  The food was good, there were plenty of vendors, the car and bike shows had really nice machinery, add in a large turnout of really nice people and I would say I'm already looking forward to the 6th annual CB run next year.
