    Man, y'all are moving some tags around out there. Reminds me of when HR TOR first kicked off. I made that thread since I wanted to play and the VA Tag was never in reach for long. After HR Tag got going folks
    began to chat it up alot, so Roger123 made the Chatter thread.

    It's one of the best things about Tag games, they get people talking and eventually eating together, then riding together. It really is a great way to bring the ADV family together.

    Funny to see a group ride too. Beemers, cruisers, dirt bikes with blinkers and sport bikes all together with one common love. Two wheels and an strong desire to see what is up around the bend.

    So. when is the Willyburg ADV dinner? or lunch run?

    A lunch or dinner sounds good at some point. Not many players with the Willyburg group yet and I see some of them that are playing on our monthly club ride (Williamsburg Riders)

    Besides starting the Williamsburg Riders 8 years ago I started another group within the the VJMC (Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club) of Southeastern Virginia, Chapter no. 6 (SE VA Field Rep). Once the next Vintage Gathering is over with (this Saturday) I can take a breather from organized clubs etc. Well, somewhat I'm the newsletter editor for the Richmond BMW Riders.

    One reason I really dig the Tag game is that it's not so organized and I don't have to do anything but ride to the next destination. Very cool!

    Breaking rule #3 big time, I also have 4 dogs and soon will have 6 guinea fowl /keets to contend with...

    So, will be a few weeks until I can 'organize' something of an ADV dinner/lunch gathering.

    Good idea,

    thanks,

    This will be our 4th event. The event is growing slowly. We're happy if a few bikes show up. Last November we had around 20 vintage bikes which was very cool. We had a photo spread in the National magazine for our first 'show' back a year ago. Just a bunch of people gathering to drool and talk vintage/classic bikes. Hope you can make it out.

    Nope, wasn't me. I headed to Williamsburg after work for some dinner and a visit to the Home Depot. Just got home a few minutes ago.

    :super Cool! Will do our best to make one of these.

    How old does a bike need to be to be considered "vintage"? :*sip*

    20 yrs or older but there are no hard rules. Bring a rolling chassis or any project you have going on is fine by us.

    If anyone signs up for the VJMC please use my name-I get Brownie Points if someone in my region joins. On the VJMC website: http://www.vjmc.org/fieldreps.shtml I'm the guy in Lanexa, VA

    Next Gathering will be mid October. Haven't decided on a firm date yet.

    Thinking of adding Essex County to really expand our horizons and get some miles in. Any comments?
