Hope to attend.

Me & thebeav hope to show. Maybe not Afrika but we think we can make it to Upper Beach, Lower Scarboro. Course travelin through Scarboro may be more dangerous than travelin thru Afrika.

Do anybody eat Indian??


Anybody bringin a neck brace for gorege?? oh yeah he can't make it!!

Everyone loves Indian, Bob.

Speaking of Indian, drag that Ron character along with you, too.

Hats off to Harry for hosting our African info. night at his fantastic place, WOW! it was every motorcyclist's dream.

Thanks to everyone that came and showed their interest and brought some yummy food. I look forward to the next gathering of friendly faces, the sooner the better.

Waterlily I forgot to give you some more pamphlets so maybe I will have to take a ride down to the shop and drop some off sometime.

Cheers BB

Thanks to Harry for opening his home to us for a terrific evening. And what a home! Man, I like your sense of priorities.


Who doesn't need a Ducati in their games room?




How about a Triumph, Laverda and BMW in your living room?



And of course, more Ducatis and Hondas off the kitchen.


Where did I go wrong?

thanks to all

Hi All

Thanks Harry for hosting the event, it was great seeing you again. It was really great meeting you all and I am stoked about this coming together for next year. I know we were supposed to get together for the ride, campout and bbq at my farm on the 6th of June, however that is the ride for sight day which I am involved in. How does Saturday May 30th work for everyone.

ATGATT
Gary
