Lived up by Baltimore. Went to Clancy's and the RIA (Rhode Island Ave) Club. It was on the corner of Rhode Island Ave (of course) and Bladensburg Road. It was a biker dump but a lot of fun watching the cops running around trying to round us up. From Google Earth, it is a parking lot or cars sales lot now. The building was falling down in the 70's. The place had character. Actually, it was full of characters. I'm 66 now, still riding and miss those days. I can't run as fast so those days are over for me. The Gentleman's clubs here in SC are shipping containers with a few chairs, a bar and an extension cord running in from next door for electricity. Oh, and nobody white in them. They shoot the hell out of each other in those places. And strangely, we are okay with that.
It will never be the 60's and 70's again.
