    FWIW: I went to this event on Saturday and was suprised at the turn-out. I got there at 6, left at 9pm, and was surprised at how many bikes showed up - between 60-100, various makes, models and vintages, from OLD to brand new. My favorite was the pristine, white Norton John Player Special, piloted by a very attractive rider.

    Cafe Racer is a coffee shop in front, a garage/bike shop in back. It is modeled after the legendary and very famous Ace Cafe in London. The owners had food and a band out back, quite a nice set-up. They are located in Ypsilanti's Depot Town which has a well-attended Tuesday Bike Night.

    The owners are young, local entrepreneurs and motorcylce enthusiasts and it will be great to see them succeed. If you are ever in the area - or just need a destination for an upcoming ride - consider stopping by for a visit and to patronize these fellow bikers.

    Gas Man,

    Yep, Tuesday is Bike Night in Depot Town. Normally 25-50 bikes show up. If it's not raining tonight I'll probably be there.

    that is awesome... I should try to make a trip out there before the cold air comes back.
    Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "Holy Sh*t... WHAT A RIDE!"
