I would say yes and it's hard to argue that logic.

True...

Ok we'll go with the masses... I'm good either way but the logic for this week

Gas Man
06-20-2012, 02:24 PM
Seems like the logic would say Riverfront... so let's do that.

Threads merged to keep things straight.

Jon, you up for coming down to Detroit?

Gas Man
06-20-2012, 03:02 PM
I shot an email to Jill, one of the organizers, to reserve us a spot for 10 bikes.

Free admission for you and your passenger ($5 each normally) and free security gaurded bike parking (who knows for normal costs around there).

Gas Man
06-22-2012, 01:22 PM
Gents... if you're meeting downtown... just meet at our reserved spot. The gas station group from the downriver should be there about 8pm.

If you're going straight there... when you roll up to the bike parking gate, say you're there for my group. TwoWheelMichigan/Chris Clark group.

My wife is going with... Lance you bringing your girl?

We made it down here... it was mostly carny.. finding the bike parking sucked because some of the LEO didn't know they even had bike parking. But we found it.

Left the bikes at the festival, because it was secure parking. Went for some wings and grub at one of our favorite places.

Carnival rides always look better at night.

We had a good time. We also bumped into Buzzard and Boop on our way to our bikes. Damn it was good to see them!!!!

My issues...
1. metal detectors at the gate, no weapons, even if you have a CPL.
2. none of us really wanted to ride carny rides, they need more biker stuff.
3. Maybe bring in some more local restaurants as servers.

Ha, I met leebo and his buddy Chris, nice guys. Sorry I didn't catch up with anybody else, was down with Mike (bkinger,now rides a S3 triumph) and his uncle. Chris was that your wifes Nightster? What a cool bike, I'd cafe that so quick, it would look slicker then cum on a gold tooth.
Yeah the carny thing was not for me, we only stayed a couple of hours then took a tour of downtown.
BTW, Uncle got in with his carry, the detector went right over it never went off.......typical.

If it was a red sporty w/ buck horns that you're looking at, that was mine. I like the looks of cafe's but the body position doesn't agree with me for more than short jumps around town.
