    as it stands now. probably best to try something with a range of cuisine- so Wild Wings or some such

    Folks, if you have a preference, speak up!

    Right now I'm thinking, with an absense of contrary opinion, 7pm at Wild Wings on Rivers across from Northwoods Mall.

    On Wednesdays? Is this going to be a regular thing with y'all? I'm in Charleston/Summerville with some regularity.

    7 PM Wednesday night at Wild Wings it is. I hope it's good riding weather! 70 degrees F at 5 PM, 63 degrees F at 8 PM and no chance of rain per Wunderground.

    I'm hoping!

    Only went and made the decision for everyone so we can get things rolling.

    Feel free to make suggestions for other venues, folks. Also, to bring other people.

    :nod

    yup, that's what made me get off my arse and put the new rear tire on tonight.

    think I might have even done it without pinching the tube. Let's hope!

    Hope to get the front done tomorrow. Rear brakes, check. Rear tire, check. Front is cupped, and I went to a semiknobbie so I don't think it's going to handle well without a matchr up front.

    DEFINITELY going to have to adjust my riding habits now that I've basically cut the contract patch in half.

    Folks-

    tomorrow is Trivia night at the 'Wing, but that shouldn't interfere.

    If you come and don't see us, ask for the group under the name of "Cooper". That's me.

    I'll be riding a dark green KLR650 with full kit of protection (rack, bars, guards) on it. I hope to be able to park near the front in the roundabout near the highway. I'll keep an eye on the door for anyone coming in with moto gear.

    Call me at 819-3172 if you need directions or want to touch base and can't find us.

    JAFO, sorry for the late notice, but I can't make it tonight. If you have another one, please post it. Hopefully we can make this a semi-regular occurence.

    Count me in, I'm new to the area and just landed. Still trying to get my bearings around here.

    I'll be in a cage though, unfortunatley, the bike was one of the sacrifices of the move...

    JAFO, Andolini's sounds like a good location. I'll do my best to make it next time.

    It was a good day to ride, wasn't it?

    Enjoyed the dinner, guys! :beer Hope we can make this a regular event, but I'll be out of town on May 14th. My travel schedule is pretty unpredictable, but count on me whenever I'm in town.

    How 'bout a road trip some time soon?

    So- Andolini's Pizza on Rivers Ave this time?

    The 7th or the 14th work better for everyone? I think we determined the second Wednesday of each month to be the night for the dinners last meeting. That work with everyone?

    Andolini's on the web:
    http://www.andolinis.com/

    Pizza. (HUUUUGE slices)
    Beer. :)
    Riders.

    Sound like a good plan?

    They have slices, full pies, calzones, and salads. If this doesn't meet your diet needs (some folks have problems with the acidity) let us know- we don't mind trying another restaurant- it's about the people, not he grub.....
