Post by Pintgudge » Wed Jul 04, 2012 8:00 am

I spend $30.00 a year to be a member of the Vintage Motorcycle Enthusiasts, just so they tell me when the big day is going to be!

Money well spent!

Oh! You want me to tell you?

Hmmmmm, O.K., it's September 9th!

See you there!

Depends on whether this case settles on Thursday. If not, trial monday so no go. If yes, hopping on bike and breaking rules.
May need a couch to crash upon however.

Here's my plan. Settlement Conference at 1 and usually goes until 4 or 5. Have bike loaded up with a pack and begin heading North from 5 to around 10 pm (ish). Hopefully make it to Eureka.

Stop at roadside motel or something near Eureka. Rub one out, drink away the shame and get some shut eye.

On the road again around 6 am for 10 more fun filled hours of schlepping on the slab. Road test a few 5 hr energy chasers with a red bull and doughnuts.

Get to Seattle around 5 or sixish. Meet at smarty pants. Eat, drink, be merry.

If you still need a couch to crash on, mine is available for as many nights as you need (and there's a garage for the 'Berg) -- I do owe you some return hospitality! :-) My place is pretty centrally located and easy to get to.

Hope to see ya! Probably won't be able to do the Vashon ride this year, but should make it out to breakfast at least.

Cheers,

I don't get to be a person of leisure this time.

I shall be a Marshal!

I think that means gofer or peon or something like that, but, I get to be a helper guy at the sportsmans club.

I get the sticker, and get in free, and a lunch ticket, and, most important,

I get to buy a t-shirt just like all of you. Mine will be long-sleeved

though, and yours won't.

So, you should volunteer next year!

Keep Saturday night details posted. I might be out riding the volcanoes on Sunday, but I'd be down for some Smarty Pants action.

Goosers! When are you leaving to return to SF? I'm going to be out of town all weekend, but there's a chance I'll be be able to come back early Sunday morning. I won't do Vashon even if I get back early, but if you are going to stay until Monday mayhaps we can all rendezvous for dinner?! Keep me posted on your plans!

It's not looking too good. I just received the Settlement Conference brief and, well, Evel Kneivel couldn't jump the chasm between the relative positions of the parties. Still, bike is packed, filled with gas just in case somebody blinks today!

Gotz me a buncha 5hr energy drinks so I can make like a Trucker crossing Kansas!

I cant make it this year. I have daughter this weekend and we are getting a cat. Maybe Sunday eve, if people are still going strong, I could be down for a drink or bacon at Smarty Pants. After I drop Monkey off at her moms.
