A week and counting of nothing but 80-degree weather has us all jumping for joy at the record tempuratures.  Is this unbelievable or what?!  I cannot remember as mild a Kansas City winter as this year.  When we were kids there was snow on the ground a minimum of three months: late December, January, February, and early March.  Heck.  Now snow last two days and it's all melted.  Allow me to jump back to the 1974 Year Without a Santa Claus claymation movie.  I'd like to personally thank the Heat Miser. This is a crazy dream winter.

Ok.  Back to business. We're in the home stretch for our May 6th First Sunday Show and Swap. So far, we have over 10 different vendors committed to bringing Japanese motorcycle parts for swap or sale.  Word on the street proceeds any kind of marketing attempt we're pushing out.  I personally bump into strangers who have heard about the KCVJMC May event and we discuss all the details.  If you haven't seen the flyer yet, click here.  This is also last call to register for guaranteed Swap space.  Really.  No kidding.  We are running low on dedicated space and absolutely want to ensure you get the free swap space you want and deserve.

Remember, all Japanese motorcycles are welcome at this event:  mint, excellent, fair, rat, bobber, whatever.  Do not worry about what condition your bike might find itself at this point. Bring it out and celebrate our love for both vintage and late Japanese bikes!

With such nice weather, KCVJMC members are organizing impromptu rides as well.  If you want to Captain a group ride, let either Mark Bayer or myself know. The KCVJMC will also take a trip to Buckner, Missouri next month for Biker Sunday. Read the details here.  This will be our first "official" bike ride led by KCVJMC President Mark Bayer.  We hope you can make it out.
