BIKE SWAP next weekend! Want to sell your bike? Check out the details on the calendar pages for the 23rd and 24th, and contact their sales department to register your bike. Spring is on, and their commission is much lower for this event.

I always enjoy wondering over and checking out the bikes. Never have bought any but it's fun look.
Wish lived Radman closer, would be fun to see what kind of offers he would have got on his almost new '68' Huslter.

What happens if you get scared half to death twice?

I'll probably swing by. Always fun to see what shows up for sale and check out the Bavarian iron! ;)

What do y'all say...FJRs show up en-mass and crash the party ?!?!?

Well pops, where are we doing breakfast? Should we show wearing the Cycle Barn sport rider shirts that Preston got us?

What's really about?
Kinda seems like a PNW secret or something?

Bring your wife to the dealer, see if someone wants to swap with you or?? :unsure:

I wouldn't change a fucking thing; I've lived hard, played hard, and I ain't done yet. I've paid some severe penalties along the way, but the rewards have been so much greater; even if for just have participating in the game of life with utmost abandon. It's not who rides the furthest in a day, but rather in a lifetime. CBA member #1, IBA #31845 and very proud of both.

I'll join you bunch of mugs for this event. Always nice to watch a bunch of FJR owners drool over the Euro bikes. Besides I think you need a Beemer for escort so you do not get assaulted when you arrive at Ride West.

See ya soon,
J

You're right - we'll need someone to run interference when the dentists all get uppity about their Beemers...er...Bimmers...er...side oilers...er...non-self-canceling-signal-light rides...

I may tag along for this one - getting itchy to ride, damn it...and even a ride to a BMW dealer is starting to look good...LOL

I think years ago I met some motorcycle folks at a place called Claires Pantry at 125th and lake city way. As I remember one has to go East of lake city way on 125th a bit, then turn rt to access the parking lot, the restaurant as I remember is on Lk city way but parking is in the rear. I recall(I can still do that)it was a fair size eatery with a back room. Do not know todays prices or food quality but I do not think there are to many sit-down gathering locations on Lk city way. Planning on attending Sat., but fighting cold and sore throat at present, not something I feel like sharing. Just looked up some revues, no raves and fair amount of grumbling. Perhaps someone knows of a better place.

No firm plans yet. Not seeing a lot of choices on Lake City Way either.

Denny's in Totem Lake? :dntknw: Probably most central for those that are taking off southbound...
