    Since I work across the street, I'll be there before 6:30 if anyone's around. Since I've only met some of you a while back, I have a beard, thick glasses, and will have my Oaklandish hoodie on.

    Well, I invited these guys to join us tonight for the Berserkeley meet and Eat but they're bunking with an ADV host in Santa Clara and couldn't get free. Check out Heidi Gleitz and Bernd Kleine on their website welt-tour.com. They've been gone from Germany for over 22 months now and both ride KTM 640s. Really nice folks I happened to meet at Ace Motorsports in Concord earlier today while he was getting his front brake master cylinder serviced. I think Ace will have some pics on their Facebook page as well. Maybe I can get Ramjet to post one of my pics since I don't have the requisite link service to get a picture posted.

    Bring 'em! I think I'm bringing along my better half and my 3 month old. For a while, anyway.

    That was fun, good to say hi to people I know, and to meet new folks. Great turnout, once we figured out to join the upstairs bunch.

    Really enjoyed hanging with everyone last night. Hearing Kevin's stories of incredible elevation changes in one day (and littering the California highways with all his earthly posessions) was great. Good to see Warren, Steve, Tammy and Eric again. Also nice chatting with David about how fortunate we are to have great skiing/snowboarding just a few hours away. I look forward to the next get together that I can make it to!

    Hi Gang.

    Great seeing you all again. Thank you all for making Beth feel so welcome. Again the only downside was not being able to talk to everyone. Didn't get to chat with Steve of any of the Arctic crew. Good place to meet. Beth mentioned that it would be perfect in the summer, sitting on the back patio.

    Be safe, be well, see you next month.

    Kevan

    (And yes, I too missed LarryBoy. Fortunately Levi took up some of the slack) :clap

    Oh good, I was there half an hour before I saw anybody else and had ordered so I could get back to work and the waiter wouldn't do a seperate check for me. :ddog

    I did guide a car swap between Tam's and Eric's bikes though!! :clap

    I truly hope some lucky guy gets this thing in an auction....

    I didn't believe that this whole thing would turn out OK, but today I got a deal on a 2011 990. I am hoping white is a bit more visible. Brand New - 9 miles on the ODO. So now I gotta new bike with a bunch of scuffed accessories....:evil

    and, yes I paid WAY under sticker.

    Let's ride! Alice's on Saturday.
