Odds are we will be meeting for breakfast prior to heading over.  We've met at the Exeter Family Resturant in year's past.

I think I'll make this.  Unless it's snowing sideways the RS fairing does a pretty good job of keeping the weather off.   What time are you meeting for breakfast?
By definition there can be only one best. You're either it or you're not.

Right now it's forecast to be 36, partly cloudy, and 0% chance of precip.  Subject to change of course.

I'm going to talk with Dewey on Saturday and see if we are going to just meet there or ride over together from some point.  Exeter is between the two of us so he might want to just meet at the diner.

OK, finally found some internet.  We've been without power since last night due to the snow/ice storm.

Breakfast is as follows:

9:00am
Exeter Family Diner

Is this a ride in only event?  I'm OK with single digits, but the girlfriend doesn't have much in the way of cold weather gear.  Nobody makes good stuff for smaller women.  Most stuff starts at size 4 or 6.  She's 5' 1" and a 0 or 2 depending on cut.

You can drive. There is plenty of parking both at the fairgrounds and the school across the street.

I'd really like to ride to breakfast and then over to the fairgrounds.  Supposed to be a high of 43 Sunday.

Just got back from the city that bleeds and salted the driveway.

We are going to drive down.  She's doesn't have any heavy gear yet and we have to be back earlier then expected so it'll save running home to change and running back out again.  We'll see everyone at the restaurant.

I rode a Speed Triple when Martin's in Boyertown had their Triumph demo days.  I wanted the Sprint ST.   :'(

I was thoroughly unimpressed.  The Tuono was a way better motorcycle IMHO.  Better ergos (for me at least), better fit & finish, smoother trans, more responsive motor, better handling, better brakes, and I liked the instrumentation better as well.  The Tuono V4 is by faaaaaaaaar more fun!   ;D  That is one "you'll lose your license for sure" motorcycle.

Cablebandit, thanks for posting up the pics you took.  There were some neat bikes, and some rather interesting people there.  I'm already amped up for the Spring Meet!!
