Delinquents , due to the good turn out for the "April Fools ride". How about a Philly run? Up to South Philly for Geno's:thumbsup: I am working on the Reserved parking in front with the owner ( He's a huge Harley buff:thumbsup: ). How about the weekend of April 15-16th? Let me know.

Philly Run - Easter Weekend

Sounds like a great ride - the only problem is that April 15th-16th is Easter weekend. Sorry, kids, plans already made for that weekend.

A 2.5 hr ride for a cheesesteak is worth the Trip. If you don't like Genos go across the street to Pats. I prefer Steves Prince of Steaks in the NE
:woohoo:

I did that trip a few years ago. We parked the bikes in front of Gino's and got some cool pic just at the sun was going down and all the lights were on.

I got a Gino and my buddy got a Pats. Split 1/2 each. Both were good but I agree with NJ and prefer Gino's.

Well worth the trip through south Philly.

bad timing

Agree Gino's is worth a trip but timing is bad for me :( Another time perhaps

Enjoy a bite or two for me.

I'm out for the run next weekend too. I'm taking my OL to my sister's in western PA for the weekend. I'll be up for a cheesesteak run next time. My bike will probably be missing the handlebars and controls that weekend anyhow. I got new bars, and chrome master cylinder, control covers, switches, etc. and I'm gonna try to get them on next week after work each night.

Post up some pictures when you get the new bars on there. I am thinking about ordering a set also and putting my wires inside.

I may be interested in tagging along on the cheese steak run if I have the time.

I'd like to tag along. I could meet you along I-95 at one of the big rest areas (Baltimore House, Chesapeake House) or you might want to stop at Mike's Famous HD. It's always fun to watch somebody overjoyed at buying a $25k SuperGlide!

4/22 would work better for me. But I don't know. 5 hours is a long ride just for a cheese steak! Can you get a decent slice of cheese cake to go with it, in Philly? Don't suppose they have any decent beer up there to wash that meal down?
