Helena Montana USA get together

Some of us here in Helena Montana are having a informal get together on saturday March 1. I will be telling tales of the travelers that passed thru last summer and stayed at our place. Some folks have photos, vidieos, and assorted stuff to share. We want to meet at a restaurant/casino/brewery that has some audio visual equipment and is non smoking. Maybe someone has a home theater and free food? Anyone interested let me know 439-2717. P.S. I will also tell stories of the amazing Silverton Colorado riders meeting with lurid tales of crashing on the Flagg ranch road and having a damaged shoulder for the next two months.

Silverton was a great ride. Yes I would like to get down there again this year. So far we are getting together on March 2 Sunday 6PM at my place. I have extra sleeping room if someone shows up and wants to spend the night. Movies/photos both old and new and tall tales of traveling will be told.

Sounds like a great plan Bill. I think we all met at the 1st Colorado meet. Steve from Red Deer, I from Kamloops and Alec from England. We all arrived a day early. Unfortunately we are still a bit snowed in here although it is melting fast. I am really getting impatient reading of riding all winter. It will be a great kick off to another riding season. Thawing out from Kamloops. STG06 if your driving to Okanagan, feel free to drop in if you coming thru this way. Dreadnought

Ground swell of interest

The get together (mini mini meet) is on for my place here in Helena Montana on sunday the 2nd of march. potluck and bring whatever you want to drink. If you drink too much we can put the skin back on the TeePee poles in the backyard and let you sleep outside. So far the response has been great with people coming out of the woodwork to see photos and talk motorcycling. Our house is big enough for a small crowd so if anyone else is interested give me a call at 406-439-2717
