    everyone is welcome. First impressions is that its a faster ride, but I think that tends to be because you are riding behind people familiar with the roads and the ride usually kicks off just after the sun has gone down. If someone followed you home on your commute at night time they might say the same thing. It keeps me sane since I've moved out into the country. :D

    The COTT rides are usually pretty chill Philly rides around Fairmont park and/or just outside city limits. Not as fast and crazy as the words "chin on the tank" might imply. They are mostly a collective of vintage café racers and vintage motorcycle riders but will not shun you if you show up on something that isnt a classic honda. (MRA and I have not been cast out since we show up on bikes built sometime after 1990) Check 'em out and come by sometime:

    A French woman warrior burned at the stake
    Interesting back story to the woman that posed for the statue

    Nice job xpatriot. I thought the carved tree might be difficult to ID using google etc.

    And raise you a Gr--n R--k

    I highly recommend a stop to sample the fare. Best Pierogies in Philly if not the world. And world class burgers. A small menu but everything is fantastic

    Hopefully enough clues above. If not post a reply or PM me and I will provide the give away

    Sorry to hear you missed it today. When / if you grab it you should definitely stop in for a bite to eat.

    I live nearby. Between this place and Kraftwork I am a happy camper.
