Tutto Fresco in Orange scene of major bike night
Our Chapter 230 unofficial and informal Thursday 07/14 Bike Night extravaganza went like clock work. The only timing thing was a lot of people started early. I left my home around 5:20 PM and as I'm waiting for a green light at Kraemer and Alta Vista I see Chuck on his Gold Wing and Patty on her new V-Star 950 zip past heading for the meeting. I catch up and the three of us arrive at Tutto Fresco to find several members already there, way before 6:00 PM.
We started out with Chuck and Patty, John R., Johney H., Stan, Joe and me, so we go in and order. Soon added to the group are Glenn, Brian B. and Brian H. and then to our surprise we see Three Wheel Ken, backing his Can-Am into a parking space just to show off.
It seems no one bothered to bring a goat, so the Exorcism idea went out the door. The fact that there is even a written report at all, is due to Glenn and his insistence on having an actual record of the meeting to verify that he really did show up. It became evident he was concerned about being able to prove where he was and it may have had something to do with our recurrent topic of discussion...the lady in the news that decided to attack her estranged husband with a 10 inch carving knife, severing a vital part of his anatomy. So if anyone is concerned regarding whereabouts of any one, all the above attendees really did show up at Tutto Fresco and stayed until we all left around 7:30 PM.
As usual a wide variety of motorcycle and non-motorcycle topics were covered. It seems to me we should get some sort of continuing education credits for all the vital stuff we learn.
We also announced our meeting for next Thursday 07/21 @ 4:30 PM to ride up to attend STAR Chapter 500's very first meeting at Yamaha of Pasadena. We will leave the Coco's parking lot on Imperial west of the 57 at 4:30 pm and hightail it to Pasadena.
