Honda CB 160 Racing in Portland, Oregon

The OMRRA, Oregon Motorcycle Road Racing Assoc. has a Class strictly for the classic Honda CB 160 twin from the mid sixties. Here is a hardcore group of enthusiasts who get big kicks out of little bikes. It's not what you race,it's how you race it and these guys go at it. They are so evenly matched that drafting is something they get the hang of quickly. The tight packs of high winding little twins is something to see. I like their style, on and off the track. They Pit together, race one another hammer and tongs and their post race group review of the races is as animated as the actual race. Three cheers for Classic 160 !
