Three cheers and a heartfelt THANKS to Francine and Doc for a great party!

A perfect evening in the company of the best NYC has to offer and it was great meeting many of you whom I'd not met before at the EAR.

Thanks for hosting this Doc & Francine. Great evening with great friends.

Great time last night. Perfect weather for a rooftop shindig.

Thanks to Dr. Rock and Francine for the hospitality. Shame the freight elevator doesn't go to the roof, b/c that would be the coolest place to wrench on bikes;)

Thanks to Urban Cowboy for the tire and "baja style" tire change in the alley. I vote we change this to NYC style tire change. I still think we got it done in under an hour.

Cheers everyone.

Great time

Thank you D and F, I had a great time. You two are the ultimate hosts. It was great to catch up with old friends and meet new ones. And the setting could not be beat.

See you soon,

Thanks to you all, especially if you brought something to share, or helped schlep stuff up or helped grill, or kept glasses full, or empties cleared, or helped clean up, or carried stuff down, which covers everyone who came.

Y'all are cheap dates, but fun! It's our pleasure to host something like this every so often -- it's more DIY than you all are fessing up to.

Now get out there and RIDE!

Dave, Francine, thank you so much for a lovely evening! I'm already looking forward to the 3rd Annual Ear Hijack.

Timmy, great shots. I've always said, it's the photographer not the camera!

even got to meet Bonnie the matchmaker in the elevator.
She said she could hook Ethan and I up with some money-hungry beautiful broads, no charge.

thanks for everything D&F.
