One of Y-Buc Bill's favorite events. Hosted by Meteor MC. Bill was one of their original members.

I would think he is leaning on is a tree? What is that at the top?
It looks like a motorcycle wheel next to it. And I believe that is a sidewalk which I don't remember seeing while there years ago. I wonder if it is still underground?

He is leaning on a tree and that’s the front wheel of his motorcycle. At the top is a trolley for a rolling door. I don’t think that’s a sidewalk, just bare dirt.
It’s hard to believe the building is still standing.

Was that a Meteor MC "clubhouse" of sorts? I know they were founded in Glendora. The club's site has cool history.
No, Muck. The guy on the left was a local Piney, Dave Amato, who Bill would visit whenever they rode through the woods in that area.

Sorry to hear that. But it is the sign of the times.

Sad....
Last month a Hare Scramble race went off at Ormond Farms in Millville. (A Meteor M.C event) Everyone appeared to be acting responsibly.
Be safe everybody.

I went past the testing site on Route 70 in Cherry Hill yesterday in the early AM and it was packed more than it has been since the site started.
