There has been some interest in still having a swap meet.

We are running out of weekends to have the swap meet.

This weekend 10-28-2017 is the meeting with Joe and Kelly.

The next weekend 11-4-2017 is the mileage form turn in at the shop, there is no space to have the swap meet at the shop due to construction.

The next weekend 11-11-2017 is the meeting at the Burfords.

We have asked Shapiro’s if we could use one of their lots to set up the swap meet, and they have agreed to let us use the lot north of their deli.

The plan is to move the mileage form turn in (11-4-2017) location to Shapiro’s north lot 10 W McCarty St, Indianapolis, IN 46225.

This lot is north across McCarty St from Shapiro’s.

The swap meet / mileage form turn in hours will be 11am to 2 pm. Saturday 11-4-2017.

Come early for coffee and conversation and breakfast, hang out for the swap meet and eat.

Platinum Roadside and Nick at Falcone

I have noting but good things to say about the speed and professionalism if Nick at Falcone service.

I experienced a nail on the rear tire of my RT Friday morning.  A call to Nick at Falcone confirmed he had the replacement tire in stock.  He took care of everything with the Platinum Roadside insurance through MOA.

Back on the road within 24 hours.

I called MOA to confirm.  Paid in full. Zero cost to me.

Highly recommend Falcone and MOA Platinum Roadside tire deal.
