Just had a nice chat on the the phone with Sutliffe. I had never even thought of this but he asked if we ever took parts to sell or barter to our meets. Although we never have I think it is a great idea he had. Some of us may have extra parts that are laying around that might really help other members out. I can look in my box of stuff to see if I have anything and if I do I can take it along, and if anyone else wants to do the same that would be great. It could make the meet even more productive.

Sounds like a plan - and if I can make a request -if anyone has a star diagnostic system with which I can clear my SRS light I set when I drove my car with my passenger seat disconnected (as I was waiting to install my new seatbelt) - I will purchase you 'the beer of the day' at RHI. Would save me a trip to the dealership - for which I would be very grateful. Not sure how it works and if it is that simple to clear - but would be a nice help.

Chaps, sounds like my wife and I can come. We'll visit some historic stuff on the way from SC with sleepovers.

@ceta4zng I'll bring the start tool and laptop I have.

great - at some point very soon, I will go over to RHI and put in a request for a large table or even the dinning room off the pub (if there are enough people). I'm figuring our party won't be exact regardless of the number I give them, but I will make sure they are prepared for a large lot.

More cool Mercs to look over.

@ceta4zng are there any motorcycle shops around the area? Sutliffe brought up that many of these motorcycle shops have maps of roads that make for a nice ride. Maybe you could stop in and see if any have maps for that area.

Just received email about registering for media credentials for the Greenwich Concours - which is June 3 - 5. Will have to try to get there on Saturday.

A fun event for those in the area. There was a 40th ruby R129 - and some amazing exotics (McLaren P1, Enzo, Agera) last year.

regarding motorcycle shops - I haven't owned a bike since 1990 so not really up on the scene. There is a place called Iron Cycles in Jamesburg, and a Harley place in Trenton - and one just over the NJ/PA border in Langhorne. I would check with those places.

The area is largely farmland so taking the long way through Trenton and Lawrenceville and Princeton, should be a nice ride. Mostly one lane roads, so you will eventually end up behind 'that guy' who drives 5 under the speed limit. The drive will be reasonably scenic, though probably not 'spirited'.

For out of towners looking to stay, I recommend something in the heart of Princeton, where you can park the car for the night and walk around the town. Many good bars and restaurants (some BYOB so be ready). And The Bent Spoon homemade ice cream shop is a must.

We have a wedding that day but we're in NY near West Point, a nice top down ride for us.

So please put us down for the next one, if there is one.
