    Nice to meet everyone for the 1st time , you all seem like a great group Would of like to spend more time talking to everyone , but after walking around it was time to leave , had to be back in Reading by 11.
    How does the Motorcycle Breakfast at Lawn Fire Company compair to Ephrata , not so much as the Breakfast ,but the number of bikes

    Chaps are highly needed, hint hint! Shaun. I saw some sweet looking bikes and it looks like trikes/tractors and ape hangers (needing higher bridge clearances to go under) are the new craze.

    Don't know about Lawn but you may wish to check out the Dairy Queen in Morgantown on the last Wednesday of each month. Very nice and friendly bike nite and it draws a suprising number of all types of bikes.
