  • Atlanta IMS 1/8/05

    Kind of last minute, now, but we will be meeting on Sat. 1/8 at 9:00 am at the Cracker Barrel on Delk Rd and Franklin (just west of I-75). There are over a dozen of us that I know of so far. Y'all come out and meet us!

          John,

          It was nice meeting you and Julia and seeing all the other BBers again.

          Karl,

          We went to the Honda area several times, but couldn't find you. I left my purse in the trunk of the car (geez, I can't believe I am admitting that I caged to Atlanta) so didn't get the message you left on my cell phone until we were headed out of town. We did run into Lefty on our way out.

          Paul broke down and got some Gerbing gloves and a new radar detector mount for his gs. I got a new balaclava and Paul is out installing the new clock I got for my bike for Christmas.

          It was a great weekend guys, thanks for making it memorable.

            Breakfast

            I thinks we figured there were 17 of us at breakfast, I met some new people and saw people from last year.

            Nice seeing everyone and catching up. I will post some pics later on. Hope we can ride together soon.

            Bill

            PS: The show was pretty neat too...

              It was really great to meet all of you. Layli and I had a great time. She even found a bike she likes and now can't stop talking about it!

                Here we gathered again in front of the disabled sign again... not all of us were there, we were out back looking at bikes

                (This has been edited to answer Gerry's questions)

                From the left: Tom (Java), his wife Ruthie, Dan from the About site, Larry,(Muddara) Me, (Calabash) Larry's wife, Karl_L, John Byner and his wife, and JHug. Cindy was in back of the restaurant looking at Shutterbug's Harley, and Paul took the photo for us.



                Shutterbug was one of three that rode their bike to breakfast. What a pretty bike Drew!



                I love antiques and found out now I love old bikes... here is a pretty Vincent Black Shadow, or at least that what the sign said, I am not an expert here.....



                I also like unusual bikes, this bike is so ugly it reminds me of a bulldog...so ugly its cute.

                  Nice pictures Bill. I recognize you and Karl_L in the picture. Is that John Bryer behind karl, picture right? I think so...
                  Who are everyone else in the photos?

                  Cindy, were you one of those out back looking at more bikes?

                  It looks like it was fun.

                          Hey JohnBryer, did you get those custom ear plugs at the show? I saw them for $55 as well as the headphone versions for... wha, wha what - $175!!!

                          Turns out they are a Mom and Pop without the store front a few miles from my house. I figure there prices may not be as inflated a month from now.

                          In the sea of IMS goodies - I can't find their card. Do you have their contact info?

                          BTW: I think Julia and Cindy really left an impression on Layli. That and the 'dreamy' red and silver Yahama V Star Classic she kept jumping on... I may have a riding partner this season!

                            Quick! Get her registered for the BRC course before she changes her mind. Nothing is more gratifying than to have a partner to share your passions.

                              I hate to admit it, but we dropped $175*2 for the earplugs with speakers. There just doesn't seem to be many other choices, so I really hope they work out. I love listening to music while I'm riding, so I figured it was worth it.
