Thumbs up Snohomish/Sultan bike show this weekend

Is anyone planning on going to the show this weekend (Sunday). Since it was cancelled in Snohomish ABATE moved it to Sultan as a mini-event (part of the Sultan shindig). Here's the link: http://www.snohomishbikeshow.org/

Between Sultan and Monroe it's like riding on grated bridge deck with mild knobbies for 5 miles. Unless the traffic stops, then you get a break. Count on traffic stopping, too. Where do you live?

I'm just over in Mill Creek. Gonna run down to Highway 522 and then into Monroe. I'm thinking of leaving here around 10 or so and should be tooling into town around 11 (allowing for traffic).

Maybe I'll run into you then, I have a yellow/black 95 sporty 1200. I was thinking of riding my bicycle, actually, need to get some cardio done. What does your bike look like?

Mine's an '05 with a black fiberglass batwing fairing (hoppe industries) and corbin fiberglass saddlebags, and custom paint from Mike Lavallee up at Killerpaint in Snohomish (pic below). I'm probably going to enter it in the show, never have won a category but what the heck.

I was down there taking pics, rode the yellow sporty. This is why I don't obsess on my bike's appearance, rain! I'm going back in a few, after the camera recharges. Not a whole lot of folks there, but some interesting ones. There was a cool chopped ironhead Sporty with red-leather tank and bags and seat on a white frame. Not a big buck bike, but had a lot of style, IMHO.

I ended up not going. As soon as the storm started I went into honeydo mode and ended up doing electrical work around the house.

Next weekend (7/19) there is a show sponsored by cyclebarn at the mill creek festival (www.millcreekfestival.com). Now I just have to figure out how to be there and at the State Little League tournament (my son is in that) at the same time.

Next week go to your son's game, it's more important than machinery. Here's a link to photos I took of the most interesting bikes. A nice ironhead sporty chopper, a crazy rat sporty and an artistic sporty ridden by an old hippie chick, from the looks of it. Plus an Indian Super Scout parallel twin, a Norton Commando, a Naked Wing, and lots of choice hogs. Oops, can't put a link in here, so use your imagination as to the three letters that go in front of
