Is it actual church or just Sunday morning bike hangout?

Just got back from NM on Wed and loving the weather here right now. Been so busy I have not even had time to ride the new bike at all. Good thing I did not go to Stockbridge yesterday. Everytime Fastdadio and I go to a ride, a truck runs a stop sign and crashes into me. I was selling a bike on Sunday. That is the second bike I have sold in 30 days! Still one more to go and I will be down to 2..... A KT 255 Kaw trials bike, ready for comp that I will sell for $1000 if anyone is interested. PM me for a pic if you are.

Its a Sunday morning hang-out. Affectionately called church because its another kind of place of worship.

Really great group of folks. Legend has it that some of the regulars have been coming faithfully for ~20 years. Im a new guy who's only been attending for 7 or 8 years.

I can assure you we have no MC churches in Zeeland. In fact, there's probably an early 70's era law against it passed during the great MC gang paranoia of the time.

This sounds like my kind of church though.

Bump for a bike sale and welcome back.....at the perfect time. Great riding to be had right now. IMHO, the only better time is October.

Had the Ural all prettied up for a show this weekend but of course something had to happen just a couple days before the event (broken throttle cable) so had to take the car instead.





On another positive note, have all 3 bikes road legal now, and the gf's BW200 engine rebuit and should have that running soon.. she's gone for 3 weeks so gonna try and have that be a surprise when she gets home.

I just rolled over 17K on the KLX today, picked it up with about 12.5K just over a year ago. I feel like those are some pretty good number in a year.

Folks start showing up around 8ish, it gets hard to find a close spot by 9:30 mid-summer. Quiets down by 11ish. Many use it as a group launch point for rides and breakfast runs.
