So where are we going? Garage grill or somewhere else. I was thinking jolly pumpkin in Ann Arbor would be a good spot too. I say due to weather this time of year and being a bit chili on the AM we shoot for a start time of about noon. Thoughts?



Edit:Ok here it is...TWC April 6, 2014Meet at: Yum Yum donut in taylor on telegraph road (8284 Telegraph RdTaylor, MI 48180)Meet up time: 1200Kickstands up: 1230Destination: Jolly pumpkin Ann Arbor Ride time: open for suggestion usually about 2 hours End time: around 4 to 5

I fully agree with you Medic... later start might be a good idea... It still gets pretty cold at night.

i'd be down for jolly pumpkin... might be good to go west vs north.

Sunday weather looks good:

I would like to get out but I have to get the bike going first (probably will fire up this weekend) and I have hockey / bowling on Saturday so the fun governor will probably frown on my attendance. I am a slight maybe on this one.

I think that was being suggested for when it gets warmer not for Sunday Pumpkin pie sounds good or the Thai place in Knoxville is really good and can seat all of us.

So my wife and I are going to try to make this, mostly hinges on getting a sitter so we have a house to come home to, but how do you guys usually head over to Ann Arbor form there? Just roll 94 or something more scenic?

Something more scenic. We rarely hit slab on TWC but it can happen.

Willow Road is a good ride all the way to south of Ann Arbor.

True but traffic in the city is usually a mad house for the whole weekend, doesn't matter to me I was just throwing it out there in case someone wasn't aware or forgot.

Hashtag? Rehashed? I guess Medic is right when he says we can 'hash it over' on Sunday.

They should rename it to the vapor / edible bash. Less pollution from all that hash smoke. Hash browns do sound good about now.

OK _ I am good to go on tomorrows ride, but I am coming directly from church. If church runs long, I may be a couple minutes late. Medic, what is the route from the donut shop? I may need to catch you guys along the way. If you leave at 12:30 or slightly after, I should be able to catch you at the donut shop.

Had a blast as well, the ride home was pretty good. I wasn't racing... just having fun with the throttle, some how I think you've got my little 600 beat with that freaking busa! I won't make next week either as the girls in my family are all doing a gathering so its just the boys and I for the weekend.

Well I think it will probably be the 13th, then the 19th, is a d-frost run if you all want to go. Probably won't be much TWC, unless popular demand, due to the 20th being Easter sunday.

well, over all I had a good day. but, I do have one complaint. When we ride as a group we should make all efforts to ride home as a group as well. I know that we were all parked all throughout the garage, but I pretty much got left to work on my exhaust bolts alone. Save for Mark and Robyn I was on my own. I'm not sure if nobody else knew my situation but they were waiting at the exit of the garage and when they didnt see me they texted me to see if I had made it out. Klimoman at least offered to stick around but seeing as everyone else bailed I didn't wanna make him the odd man out.
I am a big boy and I can handle my own patch work repairs but...... Like the old pics show, we don't like to leave a brother or sister out to flap in the wind. Again, I didn't expect it of anyone and I handled the situation best I could with what I had but it just seemed kind of shitty is all.

Rant complete

Other than that I thought the ride out there was great other than a minor last minute exit that had most of us rollin through the stripes to make an exit. From now on if we hit a large city like AA again we need to just hit the first parking garage near our destination, and if parking in said garage I was under the idea that we go clear to the top and if no space to park en masse then start goin back down and find spaces as necessary. The food was good, as well, even if it did take an hour and 45 minutes to get some grub. Probably would have been the same where ever we went that day with the parade and all.

Didnt know you were having issues. I thought everyone was ready to roll. We all rolled out together. A few stopped in and grabbed gas and another group rolled towards 94. If I would have know I would have done what I could to help.

Like I said fellas, I am ok with what the turn out was. I just a little frustrated with situation. I'm over it and all is well. I got her fixed and have ridden back and forth to work with no issue. Even one day there was my exit to go home and just kept on plodding up 75. Found myself on Ford Rd and stopped at the tattoo shop to schedule the free tune up session.
