Any Sunday at Michael's Bar and Grill you will find from 10 to 100 bikes, all brands. The fun starts around 9:30 and continues sometimes until noon.  Usually a ride or two will organize and you may find yourself gone until dusk.  If you're in the area of central North Carolina it's a must.

michaels eating 1.jpg (26019 bytes)

The food is good and the wait people friendly.  We keep trying to get them to improve the coffee - it's plentiful but...

We like to eat outside on the deck -   allows you to keep an eye out for each new bike .  There is seating inside for the less hardy.

A variety of tires to kick and lies to hear.
