April showers bring....

....May showers. Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day and I thought Spring was finally here but wait, it wasn't quite the weekend. The rains came in last night with a glimmer of hope this morning that they would subside for the weekend, you know, get it out of its system overnight. But alas, down it comes.

May is a busy month for motorcyclists, there are several events happening today and throughout the month of May. There are three going on today:

BikePac - Capital Thunder Rally - Motorcycle Awareness Day. Hundreds of bikes flood the State Capitol steps to raise motorcycle awareness.

5th Annual BMWRO/Motogear Swap Meet- Premier Moto Gear of Oregon. 414 Queen Ave. SW - Albany Oregon 97322
Description: Bring your unwanted motorcycle gear and parts, or motorcycles to sell. Enjoy refreshments and comaraderie. Held rain or shine. Hosts: Don and Debbie Weber.

Bike Fest in Cottage Grove

Sure hope we don't get too wet today. I am off to meet the gang for coffee and check out the swap meet. Pics to follow.

EDIT: Not a bad turnout considering the weather and other activities happening today.

It was a small crowd, but I met with some fellow riders I know and met others I didn't. And that is what it is all about.
