I know we're all itching to get out and ride, and do this group meet up while checking out the dealer... but I suggest we put off our Aprilia meet until the weather has had some time to to change for the better on average. We may get a 50 or 60 degree day here and there but this time of year its really hit or miss and we could end up planning a day that is 40 and raining even if we shoot for a couple weeks from now.
For a decent turn out I think we need to really give everyone as much advance notice as we can too. I don't think the average temp here gets reliably up over 50 until late April/early May. This will also give everyone time to get the riding cobwebs out, get their bikes up and running, out of storage, etc...
I'm game for whatever pretty much, but just my thoughts on it.
I know I personally have a few things going on during April weekends but I'll throw out April 30th or May 7th as a start to this. If anyone has better suggestion or know these dates won't for them post up your thoughts or dates you'd rather have and we can try to get to some agreement on a collective "best for most scenario".
Also, FYI April 10th is the open house for the Chicago D-Store I will be trying to make that, but depending on weather don't know if it will be bike or car for that. Hopefully 3 weeks is enough time to get this weather out of here. Calling for some light snow at the end of the week
