    So - I didn't see Yossarian or El Guero:ddog :D

    It was effin' HOT.

    I won best modern Triumph - out of 3 bikes in class. I'll add the plaque to my collection from my T'bird Sport:evil

    DJU rode his '39 BSA out from Omaha.

    That is most likely due to us having been in Marne 24 hours earlier than you.

    Did you miss the posts that indicated Guero and I would make it over on Saturday? :wink:

    Yes, it was hot then too.

    What I wanna know is:

    Who the heck is Yves?

    Lucky ba$tard has his name written on about 15 SOLD tags on the vintage bikes in the back room @ Baxter.

    I saw that too. I'm guessing he's some rich overseas buyer.

    Haven't been over there for a few years, but always a good time and some great bikes to be seen. May have to try and go by...

    Love that bike. I've seen it every time that I've been to Baxter's open house.

    Too bad this weekend is PIEFEST on Saturday and I'm smoking about 20-25 lbs of pork butt Sunday. Baxter's open house is always a good time.

    One week away! Looks like Randy is having an auction on Saturday. Should be fun if you can make it. Heading up on Sunday for the bike show and hot dogs!
