Stockbridge MI Meet

I had the pleasure to attend Suzie's All Clubs Day event in Stockbridge MI yesterday. I met FieroDude, KAP, John Sarver and other Strom riders.
I had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed sharing stories and talking Stroms with you guys.
I'd like to attend some of your future group rides and any other events that you may have planned.

BTW tell John S. that I saw a spot on his DL 1000 that he missed with new powdercoat, paint and polish and elbow grease......It was located under the engine and it was about the size of a pinhead. John's 2003 Strom is as nice as any bike that you'll ever see, a real labor of love and display of his talent.

Thanks to everyone who made it out to the Stockbridge all clubs day on Sept. 20! It was nice to see John again, and meet several other Stromtroopers (and possibly recruit a few new ones!).
Here is a list of who was there, as best I could keep track:
John Sarver

They are already planning for next year, and so am I - I would like to get at least 20-25 Stromtroopers there, together all in a row. Maybe with a Stromtroopers sign and info. There will also be an event in July next year that I am hoping we can make a showing at! I will be sure to post info in the regional events sticky as the time approaches.

There were a ton of makes represented, with every style you can imagine, with several examples from the 50's, 60's, on up to the latest and greatest. To name a few: Aprilia, BMW, Moto Guzzi, Velocette, Triumph, Cushman, Ducati, Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda, and Harley Davidson.

Unfortunately, we weren't all together but here is part of the line-up:

There were a lot of bikes (I didn't even try to count - this is just one street of 4, and two of the streets were line 3 deep!):

There was some old school:

And some new school:

I forgot my own name....

I had a great time at Stockbridge. I met some great guys and saw some beautiful machines. I told FieroDude that my Stromtrooper name was SOS, but it is Otis. It has been a while since I got on the site, but I'll be back frequently now that I know there is an active local riding group.
