Just got back from a great party at Peninsula Park in North Portland put on as part of the city-wide National Night Out festivities.

There was music, food, and a bunch of my Piedmont neighbors. One of the more interesting people I met was Dave…who I first met while parking bikes for the BTA at the Blues Festival a few weeks ago. I remembered him when I saw him tonight because of his long, black, lowrider-chopper-style Dyno Cruiser.

Turns out Dave absolutely loves his bike (he wouldn’t even let me take it for a spin) and he cruises it around with his wife who has a pink cruiser with a stuffed E.T. (Extra Terrestrial) doll in the front basket. I’m looking forward to seeing Dave again at the Mississippi Street Fair. With his big bike, he’s pretty hard to miss.
