:coffee: NOTE: THIS IS MEANT TO BE A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT POSTING - Bumps will be made as deemed appropriate to give exposure to the event and instill interest and participation since so few folks actually stop at the home page... :bleh:


You can already tell by the evening sunset times getting earlier and the slight lowering of the morning temps that (despite the day's highs) it will soon be getting cooler and Autumn will be upon us.

:hmm2: So...who's giving some thought to joining other Cafe' Members at the Grand Strand Fall Bike Rally and VTX Meet & Greet on the South Carolina beaches Sept 29 - Oct 3? :cool:

Sept 29 - Oct 3?!! :eek:

Whoa!!! That's just a few weeks away...! :choppersm

For the official event webpage, thread and postings here at the Cafe' -(set up by Dale (ThePCDOC) and Ray (BigX)) go to the VTX Cafe' Home Page or just click:



Meanwhile, Let me see if I can share with you undecideds some ideas for this event so far...

Opportunities will abound to:
  1. Meet new VTX owners/Cafe members in person
  2. Enjoy each other's company
  3. Ride together
  4. Eat together
  5. Experience the Fall Beach Bike Week rally venues and vendors
  6. Check out surrounding Grand Strand/Horry County attractions/activities
  7. Get a new tattoo from a famous artist (not mandatory, but what a cool post for later on the Cafe'...!)
  8. Buy and/or Show off your new Speedo (or other "personal" mods... :icon_susp)
