Parnelli Jones and Dave Ekins will answer audience members’ questions at a tribute dinner that kicks off the Petersen’s one-day Off-Road Show and summer exhibition, Braving Baja: 1,000 Miles to Glory, presented by American Honda Motorcycle Division.
Los Angeles, Calif. (April, 2013) – To prove the durability of its motorcycles, American Honda sent a CL72 Scrambler on a 950 mile trek through rocks, sand washes, dry lake beds, mountain passes and paved roads.
