Yeow. I feel the real need to ride a couple hundred miles, sit around a campfire, and have an Airhead Tech Session.

Then again...my schedule is full until at least past January. I have Das Beast dribbling oil on the lift. The weather sucks and the Audi TT has heated seats.

Cripes. I am getting old.

So... it is all relative.

I hope your hand is o.k. Your BMW probably will not fail you, but ultimately, your body will... take care of yourself!

the porter just down the road has an awesome beer list. But the Vortex has parking!

We should bring Brad in on this!

Don't Drink With Brad.

(But let's get him anyway )

The Vortex is great, The Porter too ... Or How about Arizona Pub? They have street parking under full lights and a great beer selection. And there won't be anyone there ... We could cause a ruckus! Just a thought!

I have never been to the Arizona Pub...sounds like an adventure (within a pity party)
but I'd rather park in a parking lot for security of my GS, unless we'll all be driving cages. (just saying)
Vortex or Arizona Pub what does everyone say?

Sorry about you luck Jenna, I'm sending some good vibes your way.

Now if you Atlanta folks want to head up to Chattanooga, I'll come down from Knoxville and we can do a barley therapy session. We can probably scare up a decent group of locals too.

Supposed to be a high of 47 and sunny this Saturday.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

It's a bit sleepy ... nice patio and upstairs. On a dead end street. Been to a couple of bike nights there with the local Triumph, BSA, Norton nerds. They were asked to leave due to the drag racing.

Anyway, the last few times I've been there it's been a quiet little experience with a local flavor. Fun Fun.

Old's Cool Pity Party @ the Arizona Pub, Wednesday, 12/14, 7:00ish

All those in favor
