Like Vintage Cafe Racers? Come out with the Ton Up!

If you like vintage cafe bikes, come check us out. You don't have to be riding one to show up and hang out. Come-on-man!

We are getting together tomorrow Jan 14th 7:00ish at the Dark Horse Tavern. http://www.dhtavern.com/

The Ton Up meets the second Wednesday of every month at the Dark Horse Tavern on Washington near down town. Show up around 7:00 ish. The Parking lot is around back, and we will be hanging out back there next to the bikes.

Just a small group. Usually between six and 10 guys show up. We stay out as long as you want. Some start to bail out around 11 or so, and others shut down the pubs.

A Norton would be totally kick . One of the guys that rides with us has a cafe Commando that I for. A word of warning however Nortons are a pain to work on, you would be better off with a Triumph, BSA, or BMW. A BSA would be particularly cool. Yeah, BEZAS kick all kinds of .

I think it is motorcycle friendly. There is a good size parking lot around back. They serve beer in pint glasses. Seems friendly to me. I ride my bike over there all the time.

Cool...!!! I will ride the bike tomorrow and will stop by for a beer. Sometimes after all the stress at work, a wife even more stressfull and the girlfriend/mistress giving me attitude....
I feel like I REALLY NEED a drink before getting home.
