How about we plan on a January central Virginia ADV party?...

Post up if you think this is a good idea and you think you could make it.

Hey Jeff, sounds fun, pretty sure I can make that. Missed the TAT movie at the PM500

Jeff, the party sounds like a good idea. Won't be sure if I can make it until very close because I have a project planner that doesn't share details or consult subject matter experts when putting together plans.

I'd like to fill that gap in your life.

How about we plan on a January central Virginia ADV party?

I am offering to host an ADV party to help get us all thru the winter doldrums.

Location: our 7,000 sq ft luxury warehouse in downtown Petersburg.

Date: a Saturday, and I'd like to suggest the 25th of January.

Time: from 4 pm onward, with floor accommodations offered for those traveling long distances.

Style: Potluck buffet for those who can. Donations accepted for those who can't cook. Teresa and I can lay out a nice spread if necessary.

Cost of admission: Watching my TAT movie from Joe's and my summer trip. But for those who have endured it already (Poor Man's 500 attendees), you can shoot pool and rock out in the next room with no penalty at all.....

Disclaimer: I'd actually prefer if this was a 4-wheel event. No need to compare our manhoods by trying to ride to an event in January where good times and adult beverages are to be had.

Also this would be open to any ADV inmate who wants to come. Charlottesville, VA Beach, Catherders, etc are welcome to come.

What do you think? Any takers? What else are you going to be doing on a Saturday in late January?

Post up if you think this is a good idea and you think you could make it.

jeff
Great idea! Great host! Since you prefer a four wheeled event it makes it easy to leave the bike/girlfriend at home. Around here we call my bike "the Mistress". I, and hopefully the wife as well, should be able to make it. Thanks Jeff!

Today I am out of work and not with the flu. Found a burst pipe in the crawl space last night just before midnight. I woke the wife to tell her so she could plan on going to her mom's to shower and she told me she heard a POP the night before. (Bless her heart) It must have leaked for about 24 hours. Heading to HD to get a sump pump or shop vac now as well as copper elbows, tubing, torch, etc.. (Slow start this morning after waking up with a migraine) The troubling part is that the electricity is out in the same part of the house where the pipe burst, but none of the breakers are tripped. I guess I will kill all of the power before taking a dip.

Guy, good luck with your pre-op and your upcoming procedure. I hope all goes well.

Jeff, Your ADV party sounds great to me. I plan to attend. Can't wait to see the TAT video.

Guy, Wishing you well with your prelims and procedure.

All, I'm probably out for the RTE tomorrow.

Jeff,

I'd be interested in a gathering at your place. I'd be happy to do a pot luck dish. Venison? Brunswick stew in a crock pot and corn bread? Now that hunting season is over I need to start thinking bikes again.

Karl, we would love to see you again. It has been a long while.

Anything you bring would be wonderful. Venison stew, Brunswick stew, no matter. I'm sure it has been a while since most of us tasted any venison.

Jeff,

I may go to the bike show tomorrow and return after dinner. I don't really have a reason to stay overnight unless a few of us get together for a some mojitos and sangria. I can't go Sunday as the weatherman said that it FINALLY may be nice enough to go to the track.
Anybody need anything from Morton's? If I go, I'll make a stop there and will he happy to pick up anything you need (No new R1200GS!) Unfortunately, all of my plans are up in the air as my best friend's dad is hours to days from passing.

So, If I had you pick me up a s1000RR, we'd be fine and I could pay you back later?

I'm not feeling the draw to the bike show this year. Both my bikes are paid for and I don't need to drool over any new ones. From what your saying about your friends dad and wanting to go to the track tomorrow, I'm not really sure why you are trying to go.

You needs this. Not me but you.

Sorry about the sucky picture. The Morton's site is suppose dot have a better picture. You have to see this. I think it is being picked up today. Red powder coated frame and other parts. Part and Anakee 3 tires.

I will be at the show with my son tomorrow. I will be the one sitting on every motorcycle. I am looking for a new helmet so I hope they have a good selection like in past years.
