Can Royal Enfield Rumble with the Rockers?

Pre-1980 British, European and Japanese bikes and café racers will Rumble On The Bay Saturday and Sunday Aug. 30-31, Labor Day Weekend, in San Francisco. Modern but "retro" models like Royal Enfield are welcome, too, it's said.

"If you have some vintage iron lurking in your garage, bring it," organizers urge.

The event opens at 7:30 Saturday night at Ace Café SF, corner of 14th and Mission, in San Francisco. Sunday they meet at 10 a.m. (for a 10:30 a.m. departure) at the parking lot on Highway 35 at Highway 9 for a ride through the Santa Cruz Mountains to Half Moon Bay.

The Rumble is presented by the TonUp Club NorCal.

It would be fun to see it but my motorcycle and me are 3,000 miles away. And even if my Bullet could keep up with such a crowd (which I doubt) its rider certainly could not. Roads here in South Florida are flat and straight. Mountains? Not a one.
