    Mods, I know this is a bit O/T, but if you'll indulge me a bit I know a bunch of us around here have these....

    Tomorrow from 10:00 AM to 2:00PM Ron Olmstead is hosting Phoenix's first ever MINI BIKE ROUND UP!!! This is going to be a "bring it if you got it" type event. Ron's place is right next to huge park, parking lots and a quite street that we intend to take full advantage of untill otherwise asked not to. He plans a small swap too, so if you have any extra parts bring 'em to swap. If you have a project mini ging together, bring it and bench race so you'll get going on it! This will be a blast, that I promise! See you there!

    (click on the flyer a couple of times and it will be big enough to read!)

    I'm expecting to see pictures of fire burnouts, bus-jumping, and other death-defying stunts. Just a picture of somebody on fire jumping a school bus would suffice.

    Well I was planning on doing an exibition bus jump but I was told it would scare the kids inside if I missed, and my bike is still in a pile of parts. Maybe next year.

    Thanks Ron!

    Actually, THANKS to EVERYBODY that came over to Ron and Jan's yesterday and played!!!
    That was a bunch of fun! And now, maybe if I throw another MINI BIKE night at my joint we'll get some more turn out, too.
    Yesterday was beyond either Ron's or my expectations. We were just laughing about it a little earlier today, the turnout was truly almost a bit overwhelming. Plus, you can't believe how many friends of mine around the country texted and e-mailed about how they wished they could get similar stuff started. Like I told Flat-N-Low yesterday, "To start a lunatic asylum, all you need is a room and the right kind of people...", Thank you all for being the right kind of people! I was elbow deep doing the tech thing for a good part of the day yesterday, so I didn't get too many pictures. But these should give you a good taste of what it was like. I wish I could have snapped a picture just as stuff reached critical mass right before everybody took off riding though. There was almost no room to walk!

    Big, big, big, THANK YOU to not only Ron Olmstead, but to his wife Jan who worked her tiny butt off and happily puts up with all the crazy stuff Ron and sometimes I think up and egg him into. Without them opening their home to all of us, this silliness wouldn't have happened. Also, I have to thank our unknown Phoenix Police officer who had every right to shut this whole deal down yesterday, but instead just wanted to know if we were "practicing for a circus?"!

    Gang, this deal was fun, and lets continue it on at the Southwest Nostalgila Drags on November 10th. Thank you!

    (I'm still doing thumbnail type pictures, so just click on them and they'll get bigger right before your eyes.)

    We had 23 bikes in all with project bikes, and about 65 folks show up. Everybody that brought something to sell at the swap, sold something! I have to make note of the little blue bike on the stand in some shots... It was built by Dean Livermore of "Hot Rods By Dean" here in town as a father/son project. A new bar has been set as far as I'm concerned for making these things pretty!
