7-21-18 I was watching KTLA 5 on Thursday and Gayle Anderson was talking about an exhibit at the Lyon Air Museum...

https://ktla.com/2018/07/19/summer-vehicle-exhibit-vintage-motor-racing-with-a-special-tribute-to-dan-gurney/

Well I gotta go check it out!



I have been here several times, they do a Bikes and Bombers event that I go to!












One of my riding buddies mentioned Groupon to get the tickets and yea I saved 41% woo hoo!





And one of Dan Gurney's race car. I got to meet Dan Gurney at NB Ducati. He rode one of his Alligator motorcycles. I also met Dan at Cars & Coffee when it was held in Irvine! I have posted pics with Dan Gurney in my thread they are in here somewhere!  :)

They are doing Propeller maintenance on this airplane.






The Lyon Air Museum is next to John Wayne Airport. All the planes in the museum are fully operational! And the pic of the airplanes outside fly people on dog-fighting rides! They used to fly out from Fullerton Airport, now they are located in Costa Mesa. I wondered why I hadn't seen those airplanes fly out from Fullerton lately.  :D




There is a second floor walkway so you can overlook the airplanes from above!

8-11-18 Met Hanzo and Pepe at a Donut shop by Hanzo's house...




Decided to stay by the coast cuz of the heat and the fires so we rode to Palos Verdes!




Then after riding round Hanzo knew a place nearby for breakfast. They were closed (on vacation) so Hanzo took us to another place.



Happy Diner!



Pepe is buying!

We passed a motorcycle shop as we were riding to eat, so we went back to check the shop out!






A lot of cool bikes inside!



Cool Suzuki!

So they had the bikes together for the People's choice voting, I voted for the Messerschmitt! But I left to have lunch so I don't know who won.
