OH, YEAH, I forgot the reflective tuxedo pants that he had custom made at a tailor. Cool!!
Why doesn't BMW or Aerostich carry something cool like that?

Saw an exhibit in Chicago about the first Mt Everest expedition and the guys that made it to the summit actually wore jackets like that. The Original Adventure Jacket, I believe.

Tribeless, you gotta wear that to CroMag CampOut 2004.

Yes boys and girls that IS his riding attire.

It was great to meet some of you ff's that I haven't run into yet. Beyond fashion critiques I thought Augie was pretty darn generous with cigars. But the advbabes first:
It was easy to see why Vespa made an honest woman out of Duke Girl; incredibly smart, incredibly pretty and an incredible cook to boot! Throw in that she rides and you can see why Vespa is one lucky one dood.
It was also easy to see why folks would go out of there way to buy a bike from GS Girl, see above. (Although I didn't have a chance to chat with Cro Mag and get the scoop on the cooking abilities though...)
Rabia, also see above. If flug were to happen to make an untimely exit its easy to see why she would assume control of the chapter; friend to any advriders.
Flug and Kdog thanks for the company on the way up, Pilsner Big/Little Horn and FM on the way back. (Pilsner is now as fast as if not faster than Ari on his new RT and as hard to keep up with.)
Illya is even more knowledgeable and talented than he appears on advrider.
Congrats to Max on your business success; good luck with your new venture.
ZorBMW Good to meet you man; Sorry the exhaust transaction didn't worked out.
Tim in NH has a classic story about how he found advrider and was good enough to share it.
The rest of you ff's that I didn't have a chance to spend more time with is precisely why Im looking forward to the next opportunity.
Dizave is still Dizave and el presidente' is, well, el presidente'

Here's to New Friends & Great Food!

Thank you to VespaFitz & DukeGirl for an awesome day! It was great to meet all of you folks and make some new friends. You guys rock even though you are fucking crazy!

I think we kicked around the idea of having the next event at my house...YIKES! DukeGirl is impossible to follow! Will keep you posted.

It was nice to hang out with Rabia & DukeGirl in the afternoon while our men were out playing. Is that really true about Flug?

GSG, You aint lying there. The thought of meeger ham and eggs steak and eggs, toast and what ever pales. I would put forth a motion to the chapter that DG become the official brunch chapter cook. We can have get togethers wherever, but she has to be available to do the cooking.

If DG wants to be Official Chef, just bring some of those VT brewed Pollinators and I will help cook, do the dishes, or whatevah. Throw in some of those apple french toast, too, while you're at it.

Methinks we should have a rotation on the brunches. Just did VT, next one in New HampSHAH (GSGirl's?), that leaves Manhattan, NJ, CT, MA, RI, ME, Ottawa, Republic of Cape Cod, etc., etc.

I believe the NE Chapter would be honored to have you and SWMBO as members. And Das Flug would be happy to accept your application for enrollment. We'll take him on that tour of Scotland you know so well....

Where do I start??

We had such a great time--thanks to everyone who came! And thanks to everyone for your compliments! I enjoy every moment of planning, cooking and hosting. From deciding what to serve, to shopping, to prepping everything, cooking and then seeing it all getting devoured--it is very rewarding. I will happily be the official ADVRider NE Chapter cook, my place or yours.

Special thanks to all those folks who contributed food, drinks and other treats. It is all very much appreciated. I am right now having some of Ross' fab coffee, which is making the house smell all nice and yummy. I think my heart stopped palpitating at about 9:30 last night, after the Turkish coffee finally wore off. Man, that was some wicked stuff. Flying Monkey is a mad man.

It was one of the best parties VFitz and I have ever thrown, and we've had some doozies.

Special thanks to GSGirl and Rabia for hanging out with me and helping me clean up. I think GSGirl washed every single dish, pot, pan, fork and spatula -- above and beyond the call of duty! Thanks Grace!

And Rabia, that kook, who toted a bag of charcoal on the back of her bike from Rhode Island just for VFitz, proved yet again that she is one of the most thoughtful and generous people we've ever met.

Dizave, I think I'll make some BLT's for lunch with that pepper bacon! :tongue

Of course, there were loads of people I didn't get the chance to chat with very much, but it was still a pleasure just to meet you and connect faces to the names.

And a final special thanks to Baldy and all those who make this site all that it is.

Are these _really_ breakfast foods????





What you all don't know is that dukegirl cooks with tire irons:



Considering how many bikes ride by their street, it's surprising we didn't get more people simply stopping to see what was up:



What was up? We all wanted to hear from today's expert:



Had to give the new lights the drop test. Stupid mud. Stupid tourances.



It got better :):



Had this on the way home, for one hour. Got up to 8 bars of heat before I decided on the shoulder route. Cleared up for absolutely no reason after many miles. I'll never understand traffic.



Thanks DG and VF!!!!
