    Not sure if I can make dinner tomorrow, but I will meet you guys for lunch and the show Saturday. Guy is supposed to be coming all the way from Indiana to buy my V-Strom around 3pm, guess i'll cage it out so I don't wreck the bike I'm about to get cash for.

    And for anyone who cares to know, I'm getting my '07 Bandit 1250 back, again. Love the Wee, but need the $$$.

    Hope to see you Thursday and Saturday. Sorry about the Wee - I know you loved that bike. But..... now that you have the Bandit back (again) maybe we'll talk you into an Iron Butt ride or something...

    :D

    My meeting conflict for tonight has been rescheduled, so I'll see you guys at Hawthorne's.

    As for the Wee, yep, it's definitely a great bike and I have enjoyed it thoroughly. Listed it here in the FM on a whim, and found a buyer willing to pay my asking price, so I couldn't pass it up. Thankfully there's plenty out there if I ever want one again.

    I sure am looking forward to twisting the throttle on my B1250 with almost double the HP of the Wee. :wink:

    See y'all tonight. Anybody else coming?

    Looks like I will have to bail on tomorrow due to work-related commitments. Have fun; I'll catch you all later.

    Thanks to everyone who showed up at the Tilted Kilt (there were 9 or 10 of us?). Snapped a sneak peek of our waitress - she was actually not a very good waitress but in ADV tradition I post the picture here..

    The show itself I found disappointing - there were a lot fewer vendors than last year and I struggled to spend more than an hour wandering around.

    Joe, give the girl credit...with a name like Columbiana (not sure if that is the common spelling) she is destined to be a waitress or stripper. Of course, stripper might work better for her! :lol3

    I found the show a little "blah" myself. I'm thinking about 30% smaller then last year.

    I did have a good time shooting the shit with everyone though so I found it to be a day well spent! :freaky
