Eastside Meet-ups

By proclamation, there shall be Eastside Meet-ups: Bellevue, Redmond, and Kirkland.

Current Status:

Meet-ups are ON! Yes, even when it's raining. Just post up and let us know you'll be there.

Who: You! Drag your sorry butt out and have a beverage with us.

When: Thursdays around 6pm!

Where:
Bellevue Brewing Company
1820 130th Avenue N.E. Suite 2, Bellevue, WA 98005
www.bellevuebrewing.com


Why: Do you really need a reason?


And we promise we won't harass you TOO much if you drive the cage to the bar.

(We'll change this page if it's decided by general acclamation to move the gathering somewhere else.)

You convince the million-plus people living here in the Seattle area to stop calling the East Side of Lake Washington, "The Eastside", and we'll change the thread title.

Hell, I live down in Auburn and commute up to Kirkland, for that matter.

If it weren't for how unendurably miserable the South County commute is, I'd go visit the Tacoma and South Sound guys.

Hell AKStrom.....

I know that I just met you, but I think that the condition of your "not so" High-Viz Aerostich might be the reason for your sucky commute in the South County. The rest of your neighbors just don't know what to think of you........

What? You mean the Strom's chain ain't noisy enough to scare em off like those Harley pipes?

Ok, you got me there. Yeah, it's been retired once already. Time to get it sent back for a 50,000 mile refit.

No room to complain though. Without that Roadcrafter, I wouldn't have merely busted up my wrist. I'd probably have broken my elbow too.

While ain't nothin' gonna get that thing clean. It needs a good inspection, wash & nikwax, and new armor tho.
