We ballparked it and told Mark to expect somewhere around 35 of us. Yes, it's Superbowl Sunday, but that doesn't start until the evening.

And dang, Cowboy, I was looking forward to meeting you!

We are going to provide name tags, optional of course. It'd be nice to associate the faces and the names/ADV handles. Half the time at gatherings, I have no idea who is who.

Careful where you use that. A guy wearing a t-shirt with that on it caused problems on a flight to New Zealand.

Nope, it's not too late to join in. They just wanted a ballpark number so that they have someone on site since they're usually closed on Sundays. Mark Dillard seems pretty pleased that we have so many people interested.

Edward, I just know you're going to put that on yours, aren't you?

I've been to Vintage Motos a number of times (Jim was a good friend and a hell of a great guy) and would love to go again, but alas, I agreed to hold one of those parties at my place Sunday. I don't give a rats ass about the game but I guess I have the biggest screen in the neighborhood so everyone wants to watch here. You all have fun and check out one of their newest additions, this Parillia race bike. Absolutely wonderful!

My new sharper glass 8mm aspherical lens arrives today... I'm excited to try it out on this collection this weekend!

Now I can take more distorted photos than ever.

Ed, are all the bikes going to be laying on their sides in your photos?

It's like Barber in a couple of respects....the lighting is damn tough to shoot in.

Ed. That was PJ Johnsons from right here in ABQ. It's a Twin Cam- only 4 ever made, I think.

Anyone on the fence about this should definitely go.
