    Hey y'all, I don't want to hijack this thread, so I'll just say that all are welcome to meet in my driveway for coffee before the ride at ~8 or so.

    So any North sider's going? I went 4-5 years ago and had a fun time just riding down Western Ave, enjoying the parade and Blody Mary's at a bar on S Western. Dropped the toys off at a van nearby.
