Saturday the BSA Owners' Club of Northern California held their April Fools North Bay ride. I usually meet friends on Saturday mornings for a breakfast ride from Novato to Pt. Reyes Station, but this day called for a change of plans.
As would be expected there were a lot of British bikes ranging from oily and rough to some looking like they just rolled off the showroom floor. And there were two Harley's, my '02 Sporty and Rolly's knucklehead.
Gordon rode his '66 Triumph T120 and we stopped high above Tomales Bay for a few photos.
When we got to the little town of Tomales, there was a battery smoking in the street. It was a lithium battery that had been in a pristine Trumph Trident. When the rider pulled into town he noticed smoke and drug the battery out of the bike. He was lucky the bike didn't burn up and I think that nearly every BSA Club member took a memo, "Note to self, NO LITHIUM BATTERIES."
