    Thursday 28 April - BBQ to celebrate my Atom Arriving

    My Atom will finally be here after 28+ days with the shipper next week (long lame story). So I'm going to BBQ to celebrate if I can get one or two Atom owners or potential owners to roll over to my place in Menlo Park CA. I'm pretty central to the 4-5 owners I know in the bay area, so I hope we can get a good turnout. Weather forecast looks good right now.

    I could also arrange a drive in the hills to the West if there is interest, but I don't think my Range Rover on 22s will keep up very well.

    I make a mean tri-tip and have good beer. My girlfriend is vegan so we'll have good not meat options as well.

    When: Thursday 28 April
    Where: Menlo Park CA - RSVP below and I'll PM you my address and cell
    Time: TBD - If you can make it, tell me when is good for you - we'll probably fire up the BBQ around 7-7:30 so people can wait for traffic to die down.
    Why: I finally have my full size Atom paperweight in my garage to sit in and make ring ding noises and pretend that I'm as fast as dp35

    I live in a very safe neighborhood and have a small greek restaurant across the street for safe parking for Atoms or DDs.

    Significant others and lurkers are welcome too. Unless you're an asshole.

    I'll pick up anyone from the airport as well

    Cheers,
    Jason

    If I were closer I would be there. I'm thrilled for you.

    It left TMI 30 March. It is still in a warehouse in the middle of the country.

    I am waiting for them to make it right. Depending on what they decide to do I will either scorch their name as far as I can on the interwebs, or let it slide off as a mistake.

    The good news I guess is that my shortblock is still at ERL and my head shipped today, so even if it were here 20 days ago, it'd just be a paperweight, albeit with cool LEDs, a front plate mount, an Accusump mount, and drool all over it, haha,

    Just curious, the shipper or TMI need to make it right? You have got to be stoked! Congrats that the day is near.

    the Shipper. TMI has been a pleasure to deal with. As the first person to buy a true roller without a Sector111 install, they have gone completely out of their way to help me.

    It is a relief to keep hearing good things about the new Atom manufacturer.
