Pictures of my visit to Rod Kirkham's man cave (he shares it with some friends). I spent over 2 hours to getting a history of Off Road Toad and Rod Kirkham.
Does anybody remember Core Rat or Angie wear?

For me it was 2 hrs of local bike history and fun. He has 2 other Toads out on loan. This only about half the pictures I took. I'm guessing 40 bikes, 20 frames and a lot of parts.
I wanted to do this after the May BOTM. I wanted to do it early, however I don't really much time.
Any guess what the Cook Bros part is.
