Hogs and Dogs @ Owen's HD in Yakima

Two or three hundred bikes, mostly Harleys, made their way to Yakima and Owen's Harley Davidson for the Washington Harley Owners Group (HOG) Rally.  Saw plates from British Columbia, Oregon and Idaho.  Perfect weather (mid 70s), friendly people, music and food will draw a crowd.

I've always been a sucker for two tones.

This guy had the custom paint done in Los Angeles.  He said he likes women.

The crowd ebbed and flowed as groups headed out for rides.

How I spent my weekend

The hottest weekend of the year was spent helping Ross and Patti rebuild the fence that runs along the alley. Luckily it was in the shade, unfortunately so were the mosquitoes. Thirty years ago I was here to help put it up.  We didn't just put up the new fence boards that you see in the pictures. Every board was removed, cleaned up and reattached.  The main purpose was to remove the 3/4" gap that used to exist between the boards.  This will prevent prying eyes from looking in and there have been things going on in the alley that they would rather not see.
