Hopefully I will know one way or another just in time for the party at BWDR this weekend. So either it will be a celebration or a commiseration ride for me. /

--Thanks, Andrew Lacy


PS: Here is a form email if you feel the desire to send it out to your email contacts.

Thanks for the heads up! I love Hardywood and this food cart renaissance that's happening.

clear out the facebook tracking cookies and you can vote more than once. DAMHIK

facebook is bad about tracking it's users. it tracks even if you go there once per year. and you do not clear out their cookie

google "facebook tracking" and there are tons of articles on the topic. and information on how to clear and/or disable the facebook ( and others) tracking your web activity.

So, where is RTE this Friday?

Wasn't there this past Friday, so have no input as to where it will be.

If Pad Thai, trying to coerce my wife to go. She's been there once, and I think it was a pleasant experience for her.... even tho' all she ate were some egg rolls..... she's not that adventurous in the "different" cuisine dept.

Hmmm ... "install the petcock from your old tank onto your new Clarke tank" ... ok, except it freaking leaks around the threads. Don't suppose I can use teflon tape like a plumber would? Guess I need to drain the tank, pull the damn thing, and see what's up. Grrrr.... So close to being farkle complete! Lol!

[QUOTE=bmw325e30;19777594]Hey there, new guy here checking in. My names Garrett and I recently sold my car and bought a 94 XR650L. It's my first bike and I couldn't be happier! It's been a few years since I've ridden a bike but it's all coming back to me. My brother rides a BMW GS and I think we may go on an extended ride at some point.



Welcome to the Rchmond Chapter of the Asylum!

Andrew, I voted for you at my office and did so with my wifes' computer at home as well. Good luck!

Regarding the RTE this week, That's a negative for me. I'll be in Williamsburg for the day for a continuing education class on dentistry. Hope to join you all next week.
