Sometime last month Lori and I went to the Ingomar Club for a new member welcome and since I also had to pick up my Triumph from the dealer, I went to the club on the Triumph. That was a big hit with several members including the president, Jim Morrison. He introduced me to Dale who is the son of the local muffler baron. Dale is also the secretary of Far West, a local trails riding club and he invited me to join them. He also took me on a personal tour of the south fork mountains today. It was some of the most challenging riding I’ve done offroad and at times I felt really good about the improvement I’m making on the dirt bike. Dale and I had plenty of chances to talk and there were a couple of weird coincidences. First, the KLX I bought most likely was previously owned by Jim Morrison (not the dead rock singer). I bought it from a dealer who had it on consignment, and from the brief description he gave me of the previous owner, it sounds like it was probably Jim. Even weirder though, Dale, who has spent his whole life living in Eureka, knew about Shurra’s candy store and was surprised to find out we previously lived around the corner from it. Seems that those muffler people hang together, and he knew the owners of the Babe’s muffler chain, and remembered this great candy store on the Alameda that was just down the street from Babe’s.
