    We are really excited to have Lois at our headquarters in Philadelphia.

    We are working with those involved to make it a great event, hopefully having some food and potentially a meetup and ride in the morning.

    Anyone who would like more info on the date, venue, RevZilla, details or anything else, post your questions here. FullCircle or myself will do our best to answer you.

    Looking forward to seeing fellow East Coast ADV'ers on May 2nd.

    Best,

    Anthony

    yes, they sell motorcycle apparel jackets, helmets, gloves etc. they have a large space and are on a block that can accommodate lots of bikes.

    It is looking like 12pm to 5pm. We may also be organizing a ride from a destination within an hour radius of
    Philly to RevZilla.

    More details to come.

    I'd like to be able to make it and meet some local folks. One question thou, and no offense meant, how safe is that area of Philly to leave a bike for 5 hours. The store site states "Come in and ring the doorbell ..." :deal so I am guessing you have to be buzzed in to enter. Just wondering.

    Do you need RSVP's to help you estimate attendance? If so, consider this mine. I'm 99% sure I'll attend.

    Hi Statking,

    We only have the doorbell because we purposefully lock the double glass showroom doors most of the day. It saves us having to hire someone to sit in the showroom all day. A product specialist helps customers as they arrive on an as needed basis.

    Your bike, along with the catering, crowd and most likely 100 other bikes will be just fine out front all day. ;-)

    Cool, thanks. I will be there unless something unexpected comes up. Any ideas on where you are planning on riding from?

    Not sure if you are talking to me....if you are, I'm coming from Mercer County, NJ just over the river. If you do want to ride with me keep in mind that I'm running knobbies on my KLR at the moment so I'm going to be putting along at about 60-65 mph.

    I was referring to Anthony's comment regarding organizing some sort of a ride-in together "We may also be organizing a ride from a destination within an hour radius of Philly to RevZilla."

    See you there.
