    insurance guy just left.
    they cover add ons to the bike, things that are affixed.
    So, the tank bag is covered by ins. but not the contents within.
    Cost of tank bag is a little over half my deductible,, so,,:cry ,,have a nice day,,sorry for your loss.
    But WAIT!
    He has returned with a check to replace tank bag and fender bag, as my ass-essories are covered under a separate option, happy day

    I don't think you explained just how costly and unique your tankbag was....

    100% Camel labia, stretched and hand-stitched by Moracan seamstresses with solid gold zippers and a Swaroszky crystal covered map holder!

    You didn't know what was going on behind you a bit later just prior to the two of us giving you the High Speed Low Altitude "Fly By".....:lol3

    I can tell from the pic that I am 1) Bored, 2) sizing up my XR for Apehangers, 3) Channeling a scene from Easyriders...

    There was some discussion last night about moving the Wednesday meetup to a different location. The theft of Peterman's ride from the OP has left a sour taste for some of us. That, and the OP food, service, and surroundings leave a bit to be desired. Time for an upgrade, perhaps?

    When the Bier Stein opens at its new location, it should be worth a try. I can state from experience that their food is good. However, their opening is probably still months away. Other ideas? Something towards the west side to make it easier for the Monkeyclan attendance was mentioned.

    Bier Stein.... :thumb
    They're moving into the old L&L building at 16th and Willamette I believe, I say it's a winner. I have always liked that space. A group of local riders use to meet their on Sunday mornings for many years when it was the L & L. Time to revive that tradition, but on a Wed evening.... Well and maybe Sunday too?

    PS.... and no more driving to South Eugene is a plus
    Hay.. and Mac's at the Vets Club is across the street ... we could meet their until the Bier Stein opens?

    Plus.. Newman's Fish and Chips is next door.... YES!

    I don't mind the OP, but I'm not thrilled or impressed by it either.It's just another bar. I wouldn't have made it last nite anyway,,being broke has become a habit, I can't even afford to stay home!
    I like our group of folks no matter where we meet. Other patrons at any establishment are merely there for our entertainment, they can never be as cool as we all are!
    I don't usually attend for the food anyway, so it's not that important to me. other spots,,hmmmm,,
    When the bier stain opens, it will be packed with people wall to frikken wall,,I may go there once.
    Tiny tavern has had a re-do, but I have not been there.
    Overtime is decent, black leather and chrome.
    the Keg used to SUCK goat shit thru a garden hose!
    McShame's wasn't too bad,
    the Pour House is roomy, has good bar food,
    I ain't never been into the Goshen tavern for 20 yrs., and we've had this discussion forty times at least. So,, somebody wanna call it for next week, then what happens to those who didn't get the memo?,,and there we are again,,


    Wanna try the Overtime next wendysday?:ear
    they have pool league on tues, and blues jam on thurs,, but wendysday is quiet and wide open. Won't matter,,I'll problly be broke then too,,:lol3

    True, but "fuck this place is fucking awesome, you fucking fucks are in for a grand ride report when we get back, you won't fucking believe it!" Isn't mom friendly, and two of them are on the notification list... the link to google maps is the important bit for those who want to see where we are actually.

    And you'd shit at some of the roads we've taken; everything from two lane, flat out straight line dead perfect blacktop to devided mountain pass perfect pavement, to gnarly gravel/construction and repair to more potholes and repaired but failing potholes than road, to jeep trail, to abandoned RxR grade, complete with bike swallowing puddle filled tunnles and steel plate covered trestle over a swollen river a thousand feet below, to desert track and loose fist sized rock, steep as shit mountian pass/ridgeline...
    :huh
    Also, the cities are fucking crazy, no traffic rules we're used to other than stoplights, and everywhere else it's every man (woman or child) on the fastest bike with the biggest balls for themselves. Sometimes it's man and woman and children on one scooter...

    Also- there's some kids here riding all of this, flat out on heroHonda 125's, two-up, no gear, passing everything moving...and also too, seems like ten to one bikes/cars here, the hot biggest local bikes are weestroms, but theyre rare. Mostly 125s, and scooters, out in the country its twosmoke dirtbikes if given the option, but the previus are ubiquitous everywhere.
    :D

    Hey TBlume, glad you're having fun. You are living my dream of racing flat amoungst the lawless fecks in SA.

    Regarding the Pad vs The Stein.... The original Stein is always filled with loud college students, will new one be the same? ..... What? WHAT? WHAT?.... I can't hear you!
