Haugen's bike meet **NOT** back up and running for the summer

Edit by Mod: Bike nights are **NOT** back at Haugens.

Not exactly touring but still a nice Thursday cruise and it will stay visible a bit longer.


I think I need a feed of ribs before I go to Australia.

Haugen's Motorcycle Cruise-Ins
This highly anticipated weekly summer event has resumed and Haugen's Chicken & Ribs Barbeque in Manchester, Ontario has once again become a popular Thursday night destination

Kicking off this year on May 26th, the cruise-in bike nights will run through September 22nd this year. All bikes are welcome, its free and it starts at 5pm. Bad weather may force them to to cancel their DJ and door prizes, but they always block off the cruise area for the bikes and crank the house music. Some of their best nights started out rainy! Upwards of 1500 bikes have shown up at the cruise-in and the night has many regulars. A great place for that summer evening ride with good friends and great food, roving reporter Mike Lynch states "I went to HAUGENS BBQ up in Manchester Ontario, north of Whitby where a large bike cruise in gathering has taken place for the last few years every thursday nite. Here are few pictures of some bikes that caught my eye..."

Maybe a nice post election feed on the 7th.

Good ride for newer riders wanting an out of the GTA excursion.

Macdoc's advice is sound! He did not mention an amazing thing that I have noticed at both Haugen's and the Harley dealer near me in Sarasota. The spirit of biker cordiality transcends choice of bike, clothing, tattoos, and even the sex or sexes of the riders. At Rossiter Harley Davidson, hot dogs are free on Saturday mornings, and the mix of riders runs a gamut both broad and long, but what you hear is, "Would you like a napkin?" and "Please pass the mustard." and "This new fellow looks hungry; do let him get a dog". At Haugen's, the variety of bikes is staggering, generally including some with V-8 engines and some even older than I am (see pic).

Haugen's sells beer; there's none at Rossiter's.

P.S. Macdoc, I hope to see you at Haugen's next month. I enjoy your writing a lot! - Keith

As much as the Bike night has been canceled for a year or more and is not back on it is still a nice place for some ribs or Chicken.

Kieth let me know when you are around I would happily meet you there (or someone else.)

I still want to ride to Haugen's, for the food and company if not for the opportunity to see
motorcycles that I cannot afford. I expect to depart Sarasota on June 29, and cross the Peace
Bridge early on July 1, which is really my favourite day of the year to ride into and across Toronto.

I plan to stay in Toronto for July and August, and to ride with V-Tom even if I can't keep him in sight.

Thanks for the cordial message, Tom. I surely have a lot to do before departure, but I can do it all.

Hi Keith,

let me know when you are in town and settled. In general a Tuesday or Thurs eve works best for me if you are thinking a weekday eve.

If you guys don't mind a third wheel, let me know a day or two ahead, and I'd be happy to tag along.....................

especially if food might be involved.
