    accuweather.com actually used the word "beautiful" in their forecast for Charlotte today, so I'll be on two wheels. I'll try and get there a little early and grab that spot where we can park 7 or 8 bikes.

    See y'all this eve...!

    Another very pleasant evening with 10 or 12 folks making it to Hawthorne's. It was great to see SgtMke again, along with everyone else!

    I'll work with Hawthorne's in advance and see if we can't be sure and get outside tables for the June meet-up. Next get-together is Thursday, June 17th.

    Small crowd but great conversation and of course the food is always top-notch.

    I learned more than I would have ever anticipated about model rockets, pipe organs, subwoofers and the rebirth of Triumph and Norton!

    We've decided to skip the August meet-up due to some folks being out of town, etc.

    Next meet-up is Thursday, September 16th.
