    In two weeks, May 15-17, there will be the 10th annual AMCA Southern National Meet at Denton Farmpark

    Ive been a couple times - cheap entry and a lot of classic bikes on display, as well as a swap meet etc

    Anyone thinking about going?
    I might try to go after work on Friday, or possibly run down first thing on Saturday morning

    Wonder if it'll be as hot as the Threshers Reunion? That's gotta be the hottest place in NC, at least in July.

    Got 5 years to go before my bike qualifies. May take that long to get it running, lol. Three weeks just to get rear brake master cylinder swapped out. Now if I can remember how this beast goes back together.

    Go down to Rockingham Dragstrip - pretty sure it's the hottest place in NC. Can be so dang miserable in the summer.
    Drive 90 miles from the Triad and it's half a dozen degrees warmer, if not more, in the summer.



    The swap meet is MOSTLY in the wooded area, so never too bad, really.

    I usually ride up on Saturday for the show. I am having surgery this week, so I will have to miss riding the bike up there, but I may still be able to go.

    Man, I hated summer FTXs. Those Richmond county pine swamps are flat out miserable in July & August.

    Actually considered going, but Dad was in hospital after a series of micro strokes. Move to rehab late this afternoon.

    I really like the lamp on that Indian. First time I've seen that set up.
    Cool pics!
