    Outstanding, as always. As is common, we filled up the entire back room. The Twin Cities Victory Riders were already there, as well as TeamStrange, Glmc, BMWMOCM (who originated the event) and ADV. Good times. :freaky

    Oh good greif ! the BMWMOCM did not originate this event! Look back to the start of this thread... one of the very 1st ADV M&G was followed by the MC show at the MQ. The following year the BMWMOCM members were also invited while I served on the Board with MW.

    TeamStrange had always been going there, that is where I met the Eddie in person from Mr. B (Gerbings sales rep) years and years ago.

    Not sure who invited the GLMC peeps ... :D (Dave) this year. :D

    The best part - WOW, what a great turn out to have 40+ and I had only called in the group for ADV & BMW's at approx. 35-50. The waitress was great and made good tips for her school fund !!! :clap

    Sorry, I should clarify. Eddie started the tradition and I continued it with the BMWMOCM. This was prior to the ADV's first Market meaty greaty. We just didn't advertise it back then. Make sense, now?

    Anyway, had it not been for someone spotting a picture of Metallic Waste (the sidecar) that fatefull weekend, I might not of joined YFF in discussing all things both revelevant and BS. You've only yourselves to blame for my being here. :D

    I think that was the first time I ever met you. I had no idea who you were.

    The Matts bar "fear the cheese sticker" is certainly well placed on that rig.

    All it needs now is a "Pie Chasing Tour" sticker and it will truly have character.

    The washer fluid bottle hand-guards were a nice touch.

    Patience.

    I look forward to next years BS thread entry in which MW recites to all how he invented the pie tour at a BMWOCM meeting.

    They are probably some of the best hand guards you can get.
