    Is this still a thing? I've managed to be motorbike free the last couple events, but am certain i will not be again.

    Any info would be great.

    Thanks, wickedest

    I was just talking to Carol about when to do one, Wickedest.

    I am up for one. Weathersfield again? Really like the DMV park we used last.

    I'm game. Have a couple buddies who might can go as well. We did a little meet 2 summers ago local to us.

    There a wethersfield bike swap meet on June 11th.

    Awesome, Wickedest. (dang, could walk there from my house and never heard of it)

    Was gonna do a picnic/ ride before June. What do ya think of doing 2?
    And do ya think the folks at the swap meet will jump us when we ride up on MBs? snork

    I think Carol enjoys these things more than I do. She still has yet to ride one, too.

    We motorbikers are a nice lot for the most part. As are most of the folk who attend this bicycle swap. I've been in contact with the person who is sponsoring the event in regards to motor assisted bicycles being allowed. Probably not inside, seeing as it's a school building. Lot of People hang around outside and ride bikes. Don't see the harm in parking outside. I will gladly update when i hear back.

    As for ride/rally events, the more the merrier i say.

    In regards to motor assisted bicycles, the coordinator responded back and asked we not have them there. No problem on my end. Bicycles are my love.

    Ahh. Totally cool as far as I am concerned. We could ride up and park on the street. I will hang with the bikes. It's a really nice ride from the park to there, too.

    I was gonna post a link to the South Park episode with the Harley riders who walk around going "Broom, broom, brooooom...." for attention. It's hysterical but couldn't find one with the curses and insults taken out. (do they think is us?) LoL

    Right next to that DMV park, there is "Cove Park" But Carol has volunteered her canoe.

    But any way and now the fun part. (takes a week to get a date that works for every one)

    But what about next Sunday? Apr. 23 around or at noon?

    Follow directions to Cove boat launch, not Cove park. If you accidently end up in Cove park, just look down the hill and to the right of the water and you will see the other part of the park.

    2 funny but am looking around my shop and don't think I have a single running MB right now. That's a bit of a motavator.

    Unfortunately Sunday is out for me. Would have gone but picked up an extra shift. (Food, apparently, is important. So the wife says)

    Not exactly sure when anyone may be free, but weekdays, as of now, work the best for me. 3rd shifter.

    Sundys are not really great for me, either. I always do 'em on Sundays thinking most folks have it free.

    And no one else seemed interested so all good.

    But fer mui, what ever day or days work, I'm in.
    Really looking forward to playing with the canoe. Carol has had it for a couple of years and so far, didn't get it wet once.

    Tony, your signature always cracks me up! (and I hate my neighbors, so... lol)

    Are ya really planning a cross country!? That would be so cool!

    Years back, another member did that and checked in on the forum every day. What was really cool was every time he got in to trouble with breakdowns or whatever, some one was close enough to help him out. Some really great people here!

    I wanna do one on RT one. From Maine to Key West Fla as a charity thing for St. Judes. Get donations for every mile or some thing.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Route_1

    That would be a blast and do a good thing. Win/win sort of deal. Of course if ya do some thing like that on a China-gurl, we would have pools gambling on breakdowns at what intervals, LoL.
