I say all Edmonton area Banditos (Morinville included Stormi) ought to be there. Perhaps even a meet prior at a coffee shop would be cool so we could travel together!..lets get some faces to these names guys!

If need be I would be willing to fry up a light breakfast at my pad before the show. I promise not to poison anyone  :stickpoke:

With my food allergies,.. I'm not sure that's a promise you can keep  :stickpoke:  However,  I can watch the festivities.   

We might be able to swing the ride.  My only complaint in past years has been when I get caught behind a poor running Harley and go deaf,.. and a little funny on raw fuel fumes... :nuts: :gagme:

I remember last time we were there ( I think 2007) they mentioned that they really can use  toys for older kids, and  newborns - toddlers.    The "harder " groups to buy for.

If we get stuck behind one of those, we can just pass em. if they are doing speed , which, lets face it, is an unlikely possibility at the best of times, unless its the narcotic kind of speed hes doing :stickpoke:;  but on that remote possibility that they are actually capable of even the speed limit, we can pull back some and drop back into first gear! :thumb:.

So,.. here we are,... what,.. 5 days away? 

Shall we firm up a plan? :)

The one deadline we have is that we have to be at Capilano Mall prior to 11am.  I'd like to be in a position to be able to be fairly close to the front if possible,... less fumes.  :gagme:

I'd offer breakfast at my place, but I suspect it's a little too out of the way, and you won't find eggs, pancakes, sausage or anything else most people think is edible here.  :duh: 

Bag of oatmeal,.. hot water... maybe.   :roll:

If wizzobeer is still willing, otherwise I'm sure Timmies can host us... perhaps not the one on Whyte though...

I'm still in. However the in-laws are in town and don't think I can host a breakfast (sorry to be that way). What about Wild Earth bakery on 99th St and 89 ave in the morning. Decent brew and some tasty pastries to fuel the fire.

No worries. 

That sounds fine to me,... I've been meaning to check them out.  :bigok:

What time would be good?   I assume a bakery will open at a fairly good time, even on a sunday?

I'm thinking Cap mall is about 10 - 15 from there, So we'd wanna leave around 10:30, an hour to gather and have coffee? So 9:30ish?

Anyone else thinking of being part of the Bandit (and one 919) Biker Gang?

I suppose I should put Dita's swingarm sticker on, eh? Not really "leading by example" here.  :duh:

If you want to be up close to the front, I'd suggest being there an hour early at least!, meaning we'd leave the bakery at 9:30 AM, not 10:30! ???????

we got there one year about half hour ahead of start time and there were already a couple of hundred bikes there. BTW, I'm off the pastries at the moment, do they sell eggs and bacon? :)

I F**Ked up my swingarm sticker. :(

OK,.. so let's move everything back a half hour?  I'd like to be close to the front, but I'm also not a morning person ;)
 
Eggs and bacon,... I can grab a pastry from the bakery and meet you guys over at Route 99, if grease and salt are more the taste of the day?  And caffeine.  R_outsider would disown me if we didn't pick somewhere with caffeine.

What did you do to your sticker?  I have one white one left ... can fish it out and bring it if that helps?

I put it on crooked, so I used the second one instead, and that didn't go on at all cos I used WD40 to take the first one off and didnt remove the WD40 residue properly..Stupid...Stupid...Stupid!..Thats ok about the white one, white wont show on my swingarm. thanks anyways.

So we'll all meet Sunday morning at route 99 diner at 9! ( thats easy to remember! ) :motorsmile:
