BMW meet at Vanilla Bean

BMW riders from southern New England gathered at the Vanilla Bean in Pomfret on Sunday to symbolically mark the end of the riding season. As many as 80 motorcycles, including some Harleys and Ducatis as well as British and Japanese brands, filled the parking lot at one point, according to event organizer Carl Saccoccio. A member of the Ocean State BMW Riders, Saccoccio left his 1972 BMW R60/5 at home and rode in on a 2009 Kawasaki KLR 650 instead.

There's definitely better breakfast choices around. My wife and I got the eggs Benedict there because our go-to breakfast joint was on vacation and it was less than impressive and not cheap!

Yeah, so don't go there one day a year when hundreds of riders are meeting up.  Get your sandwich somewhere else.  Or you know you can show up and not spend like ten dollars.  Whatever...

I'm all for the, "don't go there one day a year when hundreds of riders are meeting up". I will choose to go somewhere else for my sandwich and get something tasty for my 10 bucks. Whatever...
