    Party! November madness!

    Yes! A PARTY! The official "As Good as it Gets" party.
    At my house on November 21st, a Saturday, the weekend before Thanksgiving.
    Time 2 pm until whenever.
    We will have sloppy Joes und snacks, because we have no idea who is showing up.
    I will provide some beer, but knowing the prodigious amounts some of you can manage, I'll make no promises.

    This is a mental tune up party, we can talk about bikes if you want, and special bonus points to those who show up on a bike. My entire family will be there, so you can all meet my wife and Rachael and I'll even try to get my son to come out of his room. Perhaps if I shut off the power to it.
    Deer hunters, sorry but this was the date I decided on. Blaze orange is welcome.
    If there is no snow, mini bike rides might be fun, along with fixing whatever breaks every time we ride that Chinese made rolling garbage pile.
    PM me ifn you want details, or even if you don't, I am a friendly fellow.

    Yes! New Glarus and January is soooooo far away.

    Anybody who came to the spring tune up party missed half my family, and they will be here this time.

    I should point out, it has nothing to do with the movie of same name, except I was feeling sorry for myself a while back. I remembered the famous line from that movie and I wondered if my life was "as good as it gets."

    Right now is, as good as it gets, so it's time to have a party to remind us.
    Perhaps we can also then appreciate our families more next weekend on Thanksgiving, I dunno. I'll see if I can line up some motorcycle movies just for fun.
    I will have a fire outside and benches for those who wish.
    Regrettably, no cigar or cigarette smoking inside the house, sorry.

    Sounds like fun Roy, but its a bit far north for me this time of year. Plus you said the "S" word. I don't think they make chains for the RT. I hope you guys & girls have a ball....

    You made me check to see if I put it in the wrong region.

    Most will be in cars, I suspect, and it will be fun.

    Sounds like a definite maybe for me. Working 6 12-hour nights a week for a while, the shutdown is "supposed" to be done by then.

    Thats funny, I don't ever look at Regions. I read everything. I probably should get a job, but then I'd have to work.

    Excellent! Where are my favorite ambassadors, formerly of Beemer Hill?

    Shake those November doldrums, and come over to Casa De Rapide.

    Work is highly overrated, but BMW's are not free yet.

    COOL! Now that we are done with all of the "moving" BS, we can get back to the business of playing with our friends.

    We'll be there, Mr. Roy. What do you need Brian to bring?
