Just sniff a bottle cap in the parking lot; you'll end up like your avatar if you drink a whole beer...

Also its Stafford Springs swap meet on the 6th. Usually their spring meet is pretty big. Mostly HD stuff.

i was trying to decide which would be better to go to: nh or stafford? with the keene one not too far away i figured i'd stay local and hit concord. but if that stafford is as good as keene, maybe thats a better option? i dont need anything big, but hey you never know. any thoughts?

stafford I think is hit or miss, really depends on the weather cuz it's outside. last time I went it was lightly raining (but calling for a bit more rain) and it was a ghost town, not a good part anywhere. but on a nice day, I've seen that place full of vendors. I've never been to concord, and I think its a bit closer, so for those reasons it gets my vote.

As I've said before, there IS a certain amount of concha-laden vests and NIB V-Twin type stuff, but there are always guys selling old bits too.

the concha-twins are everywhere, they can't be avoided. even keene, with its bins full of lovelies has concha-twins.

I'm pretty sure I'm going up to this. Is it worth a 2 hour drive?

Dunno. How bad do you need to rummage thru old parts to finish or start a project?

You're not going to find any scorching deals or ultra-rare parts, it's just the first meet around here at the very beginning of the season...sort of a kick-off, if you will.

Goin' for sure. 20 minute ride. Lookin' for Pre- Unit Trump parts, Gotta long shopping list. Keene? Where in Keene? If Concord is a dud , it's only 40 minutes to Keene from Concord. No Alcohol! Don't have to be stupid, but a little taste can soothe the soul!
Again, please, whats the venue in Keene?
Thanx, Hank

^^ This is a 2 year old thread...

Google says nothing about Concord after 2008, nor about Keene after 2009.

I agree, unbelieveable! Guy told me about the Concord event. 'Nother guy said he had been (but not for a couple years),. Me, I get excited cuz its close. Google it. DON"T look at the dates! End up apologizing for wasting space and lookin' like a numwhat. Just yesterday got a good laugh at Dragon's lesson on "How to Google for Triumph parts", and now find myself in the same position. Lesson learned, the old "engage brain before shoving mouth in gear".

Thanx to you both for your brutal honesty.

Humbly, Hank
