It was pretty EMPTY of bikes, last time I was there wasting time and kicking tires (about a monthe ago).

There should be plenty of room left for people .
That brit ain't gonna like the big Triumph logo left over on the wall there, with nada one Triumph in sight .

Price is $7 a head. The Triumph logo will get painted over eventually. Don't bring anyone under 18. That's all for now. Dire Wolf is still welcome, even if he thinks he may burst into flame upon entering. :)

The book was great, too! Kinda' made me think of Bertie Wooster & Jeeves taking off around the world on 350s.
Or Mallory climbing Everest in a tweed suit...

Good stuff..! Wouldn't want to miss Mr Vince!

Nope, he's the math teacher from the UK. Saw him last night and he is one hilarious guy. Ask him about Charlie and Ewan. Naw, don't bother, he'll tell you anyway. If he's in Portland and you're within range, do not miss him. $7 in Portland, was $12 in Seattle, but we had beer!
