    That's fine - let's try it w/ the combo player and see if it works out. Can you attach some kind of external speakers to the DVD player (like powered computer speakers or such)? Reason I ask: that setup might allow us to get the sound to everyone in our group more efficiently, w/o a loud volume overall that would annoy the rest of the customers. No biggie though!

    I just got Mondo Enduro about 1/2 year ago, great flick! :thumb

    I'm out.

    My MCL Det. is gift wrapping in North Lake Mall, at Borders... I already signed up to man the table Wednesday and Thursday evening.

    Have fun, enjoy the film.

    We'll miss ya Mike but it sounds like it's for a good cause.

    On a happier note, I have heard from Hawthorne's and we can indeed set up our movie! It'll be on my 26" LCD TV with built-in DVD player. Brendan had a good point about the sound so I'll have to see if I can come up with an option (Brendan - PM sent).

    So..... Pizza, beer and a movie about motorcycles (albeit it on a smallish screen with maybe questionable sound). I like it.

    See y'all there!

    Damn it!

    I can't make this one. I'm headed over to a buddys house to add a couple more farkles to my Wee. I'll put this in my book for next month.

    It's about 2 miles from my house and really good pizza to boot!

    Thanks to all who came and made last night's meet-up a success. I know the movie was a little hard to hear but it was nice to have the video running as a backdrop to some great conversation. I think we had 13 folks? Or was it 14?

    Special kudos to those who showed up on 2 wheels. It was COLD by the time we wrapped up!

    And thanks Bill for posting the pics - and MAN ARE YOU FAST!! I hadn't been home an hour when I logged on and saw you had posted - and Mrs. Bones was equally surprised to see her pic up on here so quickly!

    Next meet-up January 21st. 3rd Thursday. Hawthorne's. 6 PM or whatever. We'll screen the movie "One Crazy Ride". Be there!

    :freaky

    PS: I've just ordered the DVD's "On Any Sunday" and "Dust To Glory" to add to the rotation.

    Had a great time, pretty impressively sized group given the cold weather!

    I know I'll see y'all on the 21st, but gonna try to get together for some prime dual-sport riding before then as well... :ear :thumb

    Bump for the January meet-up. Thursday the 21st at Hawthorne's!

    In the meantime, a few of us are getting together on January 9th to run down to the International Cycle Show in Greenville, SC. The Carolina Riders forum thread on that is HERE

    I'll be cagin' on account of carryin' the TV for the movie.... And I'm planning on heading over to see Jr. Brown afterwards - sounds like a good time.

    When we get to warmer weather I'll figure something else out, like taking the TV up there a day ahead of time or somethin'.
