Edmonton Bike show

Usually we go on the Saturday morning. M.O. is to go for breakfast at the Humptys on the Yellowhead and then head over for the show.
Show starts at 10am.

So say we meet for breakfast at 9. The humptys is at Yellowhead and 127. 12503-127 Street, Edmonton, AB. We will need a count as last year we had to reserve space. Who's in?

I don't see any reason why I wouldn't be there. Sounds good Rob.

Sounds good RDA. How's the jeep treating you now that riding season is over?

I took a turn this summer, but the top still goes down and it's black like the Buell. It's an absolute hoot.

Not a bad little ride. Crash test rating are solid and the mileage has got to be worth it. I remember what a pig my Jeep was.

It's almost a New Year and with it a new bike show.
The bike show is Sat Jan 12th at 10am. Keeping with our usually tradition we will converge at the Humptys at Yellowhead and 127 Street, figure 8:30. Who's in for breakfast this year? From one of the other sites I frequent I'd say we already have 10 or so. More are always welcome to join us for breakfast.

I'll be at work for this one :( At least I'll be able to drool on the ones at the Calgary show the week before

I've got to say I don't miss shift work one bit since I escaped it. When I was younger I liked being off when others were working, and working when others were off, now I like my sleep and seeing my friends now and then. If you make it Friday let us know of any booths that you liked.
