e love it when our readers reach out with a
cool vintage bike like this one to see if we
want to shoot it. Well a 1954 FLE retired

W Pomona Police bike got our attention, so

we jumped at the opportunity to share it with you all. It’s
better to see it from this perspective rather than behind you,
right? This bike was originally a Police radio bike with the
bags on the sides to hold the radio equipment, but has now
taken on a sleeker look showing off the beautiful lines of the
frame and was the second year of the foot shifter. Tom and
his wife Julie are the proud owners of this sweet ride. Tom
mentioned that it was a lot of fun to ride and has been riding
it quite a bit lately; in fact he was heading out later this day
to be in a parade of bikes welcoming home one of the last
Marines to leave Afghanistan. Tom knows his way around
motorcycles and has been riding his whole life and did most
of the work on this one. He wanted to make sure to give
a big shout out to long-time advertiser Billy’s Motorcycles
in North Highlands for coming up with much needed parts
to complete this project and also to Russ at Knight Rides
Motorcycles in Jackson for giving this old Pan the perfect
tuning and it sounds and runs great.

RIDE DESTINATION:

Oregon – Idaho - Montana

This year has certainly seen its shares of ups and downs. Glacier National Park
We’ve had several family issues come up, the latest, the Snake River Off 71
passing of my mother in Minnesota. So, we made plans
for our third trip back this year. As I’ve mentioned, I don’t like
to fly, so I would pack up the bagger and ride. I guess in order
to keep my mind off things, I decided to wander a bit, do a little
walk-about. Perhaps it should be termed, a little ride-about.

My travels would take me up to Hells Canyon in Northeast
Oregon. From there, I would make my way over to Glacier
National Park. I’ll start the journey in Jordan Valley, Oregon,
which is where I ended up on the first day. It was a pleasant
ride up from NorCal, although two of my favorite places to
eat were closed. La Casita in Lovelock, and the Pig BBQ in
Winnemucca. I stayed in a little hole-in-the-wall motel, where
the Office was in the gas station next door. Never experienced
that before.

The next morning, I was on my way up SR 95 to Cambridge,
Idaho, where I would pick up SR 71. Except for the towns,
the scenery was getting better and better. Once on SR

SR 129 until you reach the nice little town of Oxbow, Oregon. There,
Ptarmigan Tunnel I hung a left on SR 86 and headed to the Canyon. It is North
America’s deepest river gorge at 7,998 ft. below the highest
peak. Several groups in the early years attempted to traverse
it, but it was too inhospitable and were turned back. One
wagon train of emigrants on the Oregon Trail, looking for a
passage to the Columbia River, tried it and almost perished.

Only the assistance of the native tribes
saved them.

So, after a bit, I pulled into Scotty’s
Supply Store to top off. I met a fellow
rider there who was going in the same
direction, and we putted up to the
Canyon Overlook. Some spectacular
views from up there!!

Once back down on NF-39, it was a
great ride through the forest on over to
Joseph. What a day so far! Well, it was
time for some lunch, so I pulled over at
the Outlaw Bar and Grill. After a very
good patty melt and brew, I got on SR 3
and made my way north. This fine stretch
of asphalt will eventually turn into SR 129
and will continue to get tighter and tighter
and higher and higher. You’ll be amazed
as you travel through these huge mountain canyons. Phew!
Visual overload!!

Coming down from the mountain, you’ll arrive in the
city of Clarkston, Washington. Across the Snake River is
Lewiston, Idaho. The two cities are named after the famous
explorers, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. They
were commissioned by President Jefferson to map out the
Northwest after the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. I spent the
night on the Idaho side and in the morning, started making
my way to Kalispell, Montana. It wasn’t long before it started
raining and it continued all the way to St. Regis. Finally, it
did quit raining, and it was a beautiful ride up to Kalispell,
especially the section along the Flathead River. After checking
into the Super 8, I meandered over to Moose’s Saloon for a
brew and some dinner. Great old-time bar with sawdust and
peanut shells on the floor, but also several televisions for the
sports minded.

In the morning, I made a quick trip over to the cemetery
and visited my grandfather’s gravesite. Since we lived so far
apart, we didn’t see him too often, but I remember some of
the good times.

Later in the day, I was at the West entrance to Glacier National View Lake
Park. The weather was perfect, and I had an awesome putt McDonald
over to the East side. Going-to-the-Sun Road runs right along
Lake McDonald, and the view is spectacular! McDonald Falls Logan Pass Glacier NP
in Montana is one of the highlights along the way.

Further up the road, things opened a little bit and I saw this
huge rock wall in front of me. I looked up and saw these tiny
little cars up at the top. Well, it looks like I’ll be climbing up the
side of that mountain. Yep, the road winds its way back and
forth all the way up to Logan’s Pass. You can’t help but stop
every few hundred yards and check out the amazing sights.
Sights you won’t soon forget! I wish I had more time to do
some hiking. Maybe next time.

This is one of the nicest trips I’ve ever taken. NorCal folks
should seriously consider a four-day trip to do the Cambridge
to Lewiston route. This trip is in my top five adventures of all
time. Not that Glacier NP isn’t impressive - it certainly is!

Other than one day of rain, I made it to Minnesota and met
up with family. It wasn’t under the best of circumstances, but
still good to see everyone. We love you Ma and will miss
you until, hopefully, we see you again! Hug your loved ones
a little tighter tonight. Later……

There is NO explanation - Just NONE!

What is luck, what is fate? 113 mph deer accident
A good life lived well and
gaining some credit, of a
bad life lived and given a second
chance…? One person dies in
moderation and another survives
on the outside edge…What is
the explanation in any of this?
The answer is that there is “No
Explanation - Just NONE!” Ride
as good as you can…no, maybe
I’d wish you to ride better than you
can. No one can be lucky every
time.

The first year I rolled east to

Sturgis, I was only two days into

my pleasure riding in the Black 113 mph collision with deer

Hills after my lightning run across

from the West Coast, when I came

onto the scene of a deer crumpled on the side of the road, and not much

farther along a rider was down. The lady rider hadn’t survived the collision

either. This was many years ago, but the vision has not left my mind since

that afternoon. She had been riding with her guy, not over the speed

cautions, and the mule deer doe had just stepped into the roadway and

taken her off of her bike. This was an instant and tragic end to her life.

I have since done my best to keep the roadsides in my mind as I have

ridden… but you never know when it might happen. Within a mile of this

terrible scene so many years ago, just last year a good friend of mine

had his own dance with wildlife. No explanation as to why this outcome

turned out differently. He simply related his story to me, and I still wonder

as there is just no explanation?

Chris Schroeder of Jackson Hole, Wyoming decided to take the Labor Day Antler contact with Leg
weekend and make the push across to South Dakota to do some carefree
mountain riding without having to deal with the Sturgis crowd of new riders
and everything that goes along with that mess. After paying his rent on a
cabin in Custer, he unloaded his gear and threw a leg over his motor to run
the 17 miles of Iron Mountain Road. 314 curves and 14 switchbacks later this
famous road ends close to Hill City and the “Very Berry Winery” where the
famous “Red Ass Rhubarb” wine is the draw for riders from Sturgis during
that week. That part of him in his middle was fairly grinding for a lunch and
begged him to park it. The day was as carefree as anyone would wish for.
Great food and friendly tourists interested in his bike. Then the first crack in
his day appeared when a neighbor called and told him there was a wildfire
in town moving toward his house…it looked like Chris would lose everything.
Hundreds of miles away all one could do was to wonder how it would turn
out, and just continue to ride his motor in the Black Hills.

Just past the lunch stop, the road down hill made an easy wide sweeping
turn and spreads into a long welcome straight away. After the kinks of Iron
Mountain Road, it was time to twist the grip and blow a bit of the carbon
out. “Into the straight I had just opened it up when I noticed some deer
antlers in my handle bars: Hum, I thought- that’s new!” “I fought the wheel
for a few and when the front forks buckled I went over the bars and into
what the car behind me described as “The full Superman”.

‘I had been a quick-reaction Ranger in the Army and this training must

Chris Schroeder time to wonder if this sliding would stop?’ ‘The oddities of this sort of travel
Jackson Hole, WY ended with catching my heels in a pot hole and it flipping me onto my feet
and me running like ‘Wiley Coyote’ off the side of the roads to avoid the
impending doom of the Semi-trucks barreling after me. How far had I gone?
‘The law that eventually showed up to the scene taped my ass-ride down that
long hill from git-to-go at almost 250 yards.’

‘Standing there in shock I began to feel a ‘wet’ oozing going toward
my boot.’ ‘As I looked down I saw inches of bone sticking out of
my pants leg.’ ‘Utilizing none of my surgical training, I did the exact
opposite of what I should have done.’ ‘Leaving the bone in place to
stop any bleeding which might erupt- I didn’t!’ ‘I grabbed it…and out
came 7 inches of antler from the huge gash in my leg.’ ‘As others
collected the saddle bags and gear scattered down the road, I grabbed
a roll of duct tape and made several quick circuits of my leg and the
bleeding staunched.’

‘The EMT who arrived with the ambulance did his best to ruin any
clothing he could by cutting everything off with his scissors, and when he
got to the tape and started the bleeding over again I had almost reached
my limit.’ ‘About the time he tried to put the sticky side of bandages onto
where my elbows had been eaten away I had to ask the question.’ ‘Yep,
first day on the job!’ ‘After that he pouted in the corner like a hit pup.’

‘At the emergency room the doctors found the antler had punched the
skin and had ridden the outside of the muscle.’ ‘A quick washout and a
bunch of stitches and I was back on the road.’ ‘Can you hear the ‘it’s a
miracle bell ringing?’ ‘I called a Masonic brother back home and by the
time I stepped to the “get the hell out of here” door of the hospital two
Freemason Brothers met me to help.’ ‘One of these great guys was up
from Louisiana.’ ‘He took time out of his vacation to come help me get
my things back in order.’ ‘As the Freemason’s Widows Sons Motorcycle
Association it is our value to help ALL distressed motorcycle riders
regardless of Club or affiliation.’ ‘It was nice to see it also worked well
inside our own organization.’

‘These guys hauled me by the local liquor store for a bottle of cactus
juice and were back the next morning at 6am to take me to Rapid City
to rent a U-Haul truck.’’ My motor was loaded up and 9 hours later I
rolled up to my ‘still standing’ house.’ ‘While I was on the operating
table and the fire was just 20 feet from my walls, the wind suddenly
switched direction and moved it up the hill toward the rich people’s
houses.’ ‘They didn’t burn either.

‘The interesting thing about modern electronics is that despite anything
you want it to do, it is always listening to what you are doing.’ ‘When
I eventually thought to check the GPS feature on the phone, it had
registered my travel right up to the point I began to fly through the air.’ ‘113
miles per hour when I hit the mule deer. Just a quick jolt on the throttle
and there I was…and so was the buck. My bike had quickly gone off into
the soft grass and suffered about the same minor indignity as my body
had.’ ‘Two days later I was back at work.’ ‘The worst pain of the ordeal
was informing my wife of what had happened, and then doing battle with
the stinking insurance company.’

‘When something impacts the chrome ring surrounding your headlight,
you rapidly notice the hit and immediately utter an epithet as you wince
and try to absorb the punch; After all, you are your fender.’ Pop
