Please be patient, image files may take awhile to load, depending on their sizes and on your own internet connection speed. Photos from each day's action will be posted daily, so keep checking back.

You may wonder: Why is the copy function disabled for Hodaka Days photo pages? The reasoning is the same as in past years. First, model releases are not signed by photo subjects. Second, the individual photographers whose images appear here deserve copyright protection. And it's for protection against a common internet practice of lifting photos for inappropriate uses. Third, the website image files are not as clear and resolution is not as high as in original files. If you wish copy of particular photos for personal use, the original higher quality file can be sent to you .. just request from Hodaka Days. Thank you.


Way back last November, the planning for Hodaka Days 2004 began at Harry and Patty Taylor's house over pizza and homemade pies. Among those present were Paul Stannard, the Taylors, Eric Beaver, Dennis Jones (representing Athena PARTNERS group), Patti Dunn (City Recorder), Ed Chesnut, Kit and Dilia Vercella, Chuck Swanson, Eric Smith, Tim and Joanie Heihn, Scott Mayberry, Janet Mandaville, and Al Pedro.

Emails flew, phones rang off the hook, people scurried, flyers went up, Scrambles track was prepped, a nationwide flurry of chrome polishing and last-minute battery/spark plug/brake/clutch replacements hit, press releases went out, MORE phone calls, occasional panic.... and FINALLY:


Sadly, Mildred Miley was not in attendance this year as she has been in the past, as she passed away earlier this week. Many, however, were thinking of her and her active participation and interest in past years.

And the early birds started streaming into Athena, gathering on Thursday evening the 24th for a potluck and some lie-swapping at the hospitable Taylors.
