One of our favorite parts of @thegreasydozen run is the time spent with friends new and old sitting around the campfire. After a long day of riding the warm glow of the smoldering timbers on the farm is a welcome sight. Here’s @chris_lacour and @littlebellblue KZ chopper warming up by the fire. 📷@mikevandegriff #greasydozenrun #rideoldbikes #kawasaki #vintageisbetter #oldbikebarn from Instagram:

On the other end of the XS650 spectrum from earlier today we look at this incredible stock restoration that rode into the Old Bike Barn crossroads bike show at Ama vintage days. The XS650 has always been one of those bikes that looks great custom or just completely stock. 📷mv #rideoldbikes #yamaha #vintageisbetter #oldbikebarn from Instagram:

Rest in power Arlen! This guy did it the old school way with good old fashion hard work and talent! I was honored when he bought some CB750 parts off us early in my career. By chance years later I had lunch with him during a V-twin expo. He was sitting alone and I mustered the courage to ask if he minded if I joined him. I’m glad I did I found him to be every bit the gentleman I heard he was. He commended me for bothering to ask to sit with him and told me to keep that up as doors in life don’t open themselves… thanks for your contribution to motorcycling, truly one of the greatest custom bike builders and brands of all time. Our condolences to the Ness family! -Bear #arlenness from Instagram:
