Default Second FAT riders SoCal Ride - JUNE 1, 2008

Hey All.

I'm stealing some of Upchuck's thunder here, but would like to invite any and all FAT riders to show up in Orange County, CA on June 1, 2008; likely in the wee early hours of the morning to celebrate our vintage rides and enjoy some trails. So far, Upchuck, SetteMarche and I are in. If you would like additional information, post up.

Great idea, wish I could. Maybe I can get something going for us southern boys who own Fats in the future. There seems to be quite a bit of Fatcog members from dixie..

Probably because one of their largest dealers at the end of the Somerville years was in the south.

Yep. Second largest behind their home turf shop in Mass whose name escapes me. I think in 94 we sold nearly 100 frames, but I don't recall exactly, it may have been more or less.

Atlanta, it's a nice place to live but I wouldn't want to visit there.

Hey "team fallbrook", it's never too late to join us for a ride. There's a couple of us in Thousand Oaks and Sette is located near San Diego.

jh4rt and I ride fairly often in the Sycamore Cyn/Pt Mugu area. We'll post up next time to see if you can join us.

FYI: There's a vintage bike ride going on in Fullerton at the Fullerton Loop at the end of the month. I'll be on the '89 Wicked. See you there?
