Lansdale Bike Night / Hotrod Hoedown

It's that time again... time for all the end-of-summer shows. Stuff coming up this weekend:
  • 11th Annual Lansdale Bike Night - September 9th, 5 - 11PM - the largest one-night bike event on the East Coast (aka Sturgis East)
  • 2006 Hotrod Hoedown - September 8th and 9th - Always a favorite. More jalopies than bikes, but the number of two-wheelers has been increasing every year.
Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend either of these events this year, as K and I are going to check out the Watkins Glen Vintage GP...
