    RE-RELOCATING TO GOSSET'S GROCERY in Leicester every Saturday
    (The term "grocery" is misleading because it's more than that:clap)

    This new location has several advantages:


    1. Huge outdoor canopy with lots of picnic tables under it.
    2. Lots of motorcycle parking right where you eat.
    3. Faster better cheaper breakfast.
    4. Any size coffee for $1.00
    5. Two blocks closer to Asheville.



    %%% Greater Asheville Motorcycling Area EVERYSATURDAYMORNING Breakfastmeet&Ride %%%

    WHEN: Any or every warmish, dryish, Saturday morning you choose to show up,
    9AM for breakfast and/or 10AM for rides (a possible variety of rides depending on what type of bike you are riding that particular Saturday)
    WEATHER PERMITTING. No prior planning necessary: just show up or not.


    WHERE: GOSSET'S GROCERY IN LEICESTER
    across from Leicester Automotive
    (From Asheville NC, ride NW on Hwy 63
    to 2741 New Leicester Hwy).


    WHO: Advriders of the World, living in or visiting the Greater Asheville Motorcycling Area. Please join us any Saturday.

    WHAT: Three Choices:
    1. Ride to Breakfast (9am), & ride home afterwards.
    2. Ride to Breakfast (9am), plan rides during breakfast, join any group ride after breakfast (departing about 10am).
    3. Breakfast at home, meet at 10am for a group ride.


    WHY: Why not? FAST access to dirt, gravel, and twisty paved roads. Why plan rides individually, when we can meet same time same place every week (or not)?

    PLENTY of parking.






    See you there this Saturday,

    WEATHER PERMITTING.




    FAQ's:

    # Yes, there can be more than one ride, depending on who shows up on what kind of bike. For instance, if 5 or 10 guys show up on dualsports, and 5 or 10 guys show up on streetbikes, then they would form 2 different groups for 2 different rides that Saturday.

    # Yes, bring your friends.

    # Yes, you can post it elsewhere.


    # Yes, bring your maps and GPS's

    I'm in East TN and this sounds like a hoot. I'm sure you'll see me a few times this summer.

    Correct :D , but Mike can only go on one ride at a time, and you don't know which bike Mike is gonna be ridin' on any given Saturday, so be prepared.


    (If I am on a medium sized supermoto, I will probably ride twisty pavement with gravel connectors, which means the guys with knobbies will want to go a different way with more dirt, AND the strictly pavement riders will want their own route. The following week, I may show up on a big supermoto and stick to twisty pavement).
