Yesterday there was a break in the weather. The rain finally stopped and the sun came out just in time for our second bike night of the season
Of course I rode my mighty V-strom there and undressed to my shorts and comfortable Crocs© . The first bike night got more or less, rained out, but today there were so many bikes that they were fighting for parking space. I recognize many faces from previous meets, but I only know a handful of names.
Here's Cheri, she is riding her blue custom painted Concours. This is not her only bike. Many years ago I belonged to a smaller group called VROMBC.com and Julia started a girl's riding group known as "The Flying Swan Hot Chicks". They still meet on Tuesday nights and go for rides during the summer. They don't post their rides as they don't want males crashing their scene. They have a discrete way of contacting each other with ride details
Here is BMW's super bike, I wonder who rides this beast which has been slightly modified to produce just over 200 HP ? She is also an integral part of "Free Wheelin" female motorcycle club
Meet Alyson. She is a mean, fast biker and I don't think you could catch her . . .
Like a school Prom, with the guys on one side and the girls on the other, I heard one of the girls mentioned that she just bought that purple Trimph Street Triple 675
Another one of those female riders rode in on her Triumph America, but she just made a deal to buy "exactly" the same colour Triumph Street Triple, so now there will be two of them
I was walking about taking some snapshots and video and I turned around to see someone admiring my V-strom, so I went over and introduced myself
It seems that she owned a 2005 V-strom for 4 years and just bought that 2011 V-strom because she wanted the security of ABS brakes. She doesn't really belong to any riding groups but she has ridden her V-strom all the way down the west coast to California
She has had problems with her Suzuki OEM side cases and wishes she had the ones I have as these are what she had on her previous bike, also they are very small

For dinner I had a hamburger and a soda for only a $5.00 donation. It was great to see all the people, chat and look at all the bikes
