We leave from there by 830am so that we can be to the event and start to look into starting the free pancake breakfast.

My wife's credit union is going to give something to all the riders that join us. They are sponsoring the event and I'm working with their marketing dept for a decent hand out for riders.

I want to get a head count of who wants to go. And no I won't hold ya to it if its raining...

Hey Chris, Me and my Suzuki gsxf would like to join you (Weather permitting of course). See you at the BP Saturday. Let me know if you decide not to go. I plan to register at the event itself.

I never pre-register. I will make the call Friday night.... to be certain. But the only thing that cancels it is weather. But that looks good.

No, I'm out. Too much stuff to get done around the house. I might get lucky and be able to take a small ride Saturday morning for a few but that'll be it.
