    Hi All,

    I have a spare pass to the 2020 Vancouver Motorcycle show for someone who will actually be attending the show.
    I will probably be there Saturday 11:30AM if you want to meet up.
    Please PM me to arrange details if you want it.

    Thanks,
    Mike Z

    1 o'clock gathering sounds fine to me. I'll be hungry by then and heading out soon after for the circuitous ride home. I'll be at the Ricky's for breakfast as well.

    Yup, nice to meet a couple riders over breakfast. Sorry I missed out on the beer though. Had to get onto the rest of the day's agenda...

    Every time I go to the show, I sit down at the massage booth and think about buying one of those robo-massager things. Well, this time I did. The guy was doing a brisk business by all appearances.

    Nice to meet you as well, and to get some of your route experience. You missed an excellent chocolate porter (thanks Martin). Good news on the foot massager. Next meeting at your place. We'll bring beer, and take turns with the foot robot massager. Honestly, why ride and be wet and cold if you can otherwise be well-watered and have your soles soothed? BTW, I was fairly wet and cold on both legs of the journey. Helluva way to go for the first ride of the year.

    The ride out was worse than the ride back. But both were wet. It took a while for my feet to feel warm and dry again.

    Hey all, hasn't been a post here in a while. How is everyone holding up? Are you guys riding, or parking for awhile? Got out on the bike today... felt good to stretch the legs a bit although it was a short ride. I have been limiting how much I go out... avoiding the gas station (ironic with these prices), and the hospital (Murphys law?). Looking forward to getting on with life one day.

    I’ve not posted here recently since I’ve not met up for riding with anyone yet this year. But have been doing some limited solo riding. This is a good thread, inasmuch as its cross - Canada, but there’s a few of us Lower Mainlanders posting there.

    Not this time but if the next one is longer then I will pack a lunch. Even considering buying a tent which makes me cringe just at the thought of waking up on the humid ground after a day of riding.:becca

    Right. That is my only hesitancy with long rides, there aren't many amenities open right now. I enjoy stopping for coffee, lunch, whatever....
