Because of the busy holiday season the members decided to skip a social in December.

From The Director:

Hope you managed to get in a few rides in October. There weren’t any really warm days, but at least there were some that were semi-nice.

The ROMEO breakfast club had a nice ride down to northern Illinois to a neat old time type diner. The food was good and really reasonably priced. Thanks go out to  Bob Schattschneider for leading the ride. We’ll see how the November ride turns out.

Unfortunately, our riding season here in Wisconsin is winding down rapidly. It’s definitely time to plan and carry out the winterization process for your bike. Wings don’t require extensive work to winterize but a few jobs are smart and effective. Changing the oil, filling the gas tank (and adding Stabil), getting the battery on a maintenance charger, and getting the tires off the concrete floor are all simple and effective measures to prepare the trusty steed for the long winter hibernation.

While our riding opportunities are dwindling we’re still going to be pretty busy. We’ll have several chances to get together. Thank you Donn and Tracy Powers for the invitation to your house for a chili dump/get together. And, of course, we’ll have our monthly ROMEO breakfast ride on the 12th and dinner ride on the 19th.

At the November social we’ll be giving out a pair of tires to the two people whose tickets are drawn and we’re adding a nice prize as an incentive to get out and ride more, to whomever has the lowest mileage for the year.

At the November social we’ll also finalize our plans for the chapter Christmas party on Saturday December 13.

Hope to see you at one or more of our events and the social. If you have any questions feel free to contact us, using the contact info listed above.

Finally, we hope everyone has a happy Thanks Giving day.
