    The Toy Run to The Children's Hospital

    It is happening on December 7 this year. I am planning to be there again this year as long as the roads aren't covered with snow and ice. Anybody want to join me?

    You Know I'm Gonna Be There!!
    I think this will be my 5th year.

    I got those elec grips mounted on Monica's bike, and wired it for her vest,
    so she'll have no excuse not to be there either.

    Let me know When/Where, Wade!

    I knew I could count on you. How far in the staging area from your place? We could meet over there some place for breakfast.

    Re: The Toy Run to The Children's Hospital

    I'd be willing to do it, as long as I don't have to work. It's kind of a toss up for me right now. It sounds like it would be fun riding with that many bikes at one time.

    Of course I'm in, haven't missed one in several years!

    We met for breakfast at a Village Inn off 470 last year that wasn't too far from the staging area. Same thing work again for you guys this time?

    The staging area is in a different place again this year. It is near Colfax and Tower.

    There's a V.I. @ Hampden & Tower if anyone's interested in meeting up on the east side of town...

    Re: The Toy Run to The Children's Hospital

    It's about 10 min from my house, but I don't mind going out of my way for some biscuits and gravy.
    Unfortunately, the KrispyKreme in Aurora shut down.

    From the website:
    "Pre-registration for the Toy Run will take place at any metro-area Harley-Davidson dealership (Rocky Mountain Harley-Davidson, Mile High Harley-Davidson, Sun Harley-Davidson, Freedom Harley-Davidson) prior to the day of the event. There will be no registration the day of the event."

    Even though I don't see them turning away bikes that morning, I am not going to chance it.

    I hope the route will not just go down Colfax. A 3 mile straight line won't be as interesting as the last years' routes.

    I think they thought the highways (mostly I-25) was too dangerous for that many bikers, they did have the guy crash real bad on I-25. A 3 mile ride would be kind of lame, but I will be going no matter what.

    Re: The Toy Run to The Children's Hospital

    Guess we'll see on the route. I agree a three mile straight line would suck, but hopefully it's more interesting. The path last year was a disaster; mixing with the traffic on the interstates was spooky, and I believe there were actually two wrecks with one guy hurt bad. With the other crash I passed everyone was standing up.

    Where ever, it doesn't matter to me. If the weather is nice enough, I might haul the bike over to your place so Blake can ride with me.

    If the roads are bad, we could ride the 50's.

    Re: The Toy Run to The Children's Hospital

    Update for everybody...
    I went to SunHD today to register, I put my name/addy/phone on a sheet, and they handed me a waiver that I will have to fill out before the event. The receptionist agreed that they will probably not turn anybody away the morning of, but they want to have an idea of how many bikes are going to show up. I also signed up my sister, who was not there, so if you went in there with a list of all of your buddies, that would probably be fine.

    THE CATCH---Which ever HD Dealer you register at, you are supposed to meet there at 8am the morning of!! This could be an inconvenience for somebody, especially if you prefer to meet your friends at a breakfast joint. I don't want to discourage anybody from not registering, but they are making this a bit more work than it should be.

    I hope this doesn't inhibit anybody from showing up and supporting an Incredible cause. I am 90% sure that if you just want to show up like in the past, they will welcome you (as much as they welcome the non-harleys, which isn't too bad).

    Ooooh, I just had a brilliant idea. Somebody let me know where I could post up an image of the waiver, so anybody who wanted to print up a copy of it prior could get at it???

    Joe, you going to come up to Sun that morning? I will probably register there next week. If you want to meet up for breakfast, let me know and we can decide on a place.

    Re: The Toy Run to The Children's Hospital

    My vote: CSC'ers meet for breakfast and arrive as a group to the staging area. I'm not going to some HD shop at 8am just because I signed a form there.

    Re: The Toy Run to The Children's Hospital

    That is kind of what I was thinking, but it doesn't matter to me. Sun isn't far from me, so it wouldn't be a problem. I would rather ride with the rest of the CSC though.
