William "Bill" Bibbiani, commonly known as "Bib" to his riding buddies has passed away earily on Saturday, May 4th, 2013.
It is not clear if there will be a "Service" open to club members. The family will have to decide and communicate those details. If we receive anything, we will certainly post it here for you all.
R.I.P. Bib!!! You will be missed by all of those you touched, either on or off the road.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA NORTON OWNERS CLUB
Founded in 1979, the Southern California Norton Owners Club is one of the largest and most active classic motorcycle-riding clubs in the country with over 700 members on its current roster. Cumulative annual attendance at club rides/events since 2006 has exceeded 2000 participants per year. Ride routes typically exceed 2000 miles each year over Southern and Central California’s best back country roads, canyons and passes with occasional forays into Nevada and Arizona.
While we prefer Nortons and other classic British bikes, whatever you ride is fine with us – although we don’t have a lot of patience with cruisers (whatever their country of origin) or so-called “trailer queens”. No club rules, officers, politics or causes – just rides and bikes!
We have a ride every month and 3 to 4 weekend events each year, always including Cambria and Big Sur and the High Sierras and Yosemite. The club has sponsored California’s Hansen Dam All British Ride, “…the best ride by a dam site” since 1990 – one of the country’s largest gatherings of British bikes according to Cycle World. And, in September 2012 we are doing Route 66 from St. Louis to Santa Monica.
You can join us anytime by making a donation of $10/year, payable to SCNOC, P.O. Box 61132, Pasadena, CA 91116-7132. If you ride with us at Hansen Dam or throughout the year, use the website to keep abreast of the British scene or occasionally need tech support/advice, we would most appreciate your help in keeping the club on the road. We are deliberately not organized enough to bill anyone. Members receive updates throughout the year via email only, so make sure you include a legible email address when you join. We do not share members email addresses with anyone.
Have returned back to Burger Continental, 535 S. Lake, Pasadena during Daylight Savings Time. Click Here to view map!!! The second Wednesday of each month at Burger C starting after Daylight Saving Time. We meet informally from about 6 pm through 8:30. No “business”, just bikes, good food, and good cheer.
