Default Nothing quite like randomly running into a BC member.

So I was at work, at a Casey'* convenience store, manning the register. I glance out the window to see this white SE pull in, with a man and a woman inside. Upon further staring I notice it has GXP wheels..."Hmm thats odd" I thought. Turned my attention back to my customers, and the man and woman ran straight for the bathroom. Finished up with customers and went back to staring at the Bonneville. "Hmm its got clear corners, and aftermarket fogs....oh hey plus its got a chromed out grille"...so as soon as the guy came out and started looking around the store I shouted out "hey man nice Bonneville!" this tall guy starts looking rather dumbfounded, perhaps surprised that someone else actually knows its a Bonneville AND likes it, so I was like "Have you ever heard of BonnevilleClub?" He was like "oh yeah Im on there all the time", asked him his username "harrydunn" I was like "DUDE Im Littlehoov!!"

It was completely random, but still cool, never thought Id actually meet anyone from this place. He was about an hour and a half away from home too.

Crazy I tell ya.

Haha, yeah a couple of the customers were kinda givin some weird looks. I think the most shocked was his....female companion...because she was still in the restroom when all of this was going on, and then after they checked out we told each other that it was "good to see you" or something like that, and she kinda gave him this "wtf?" look. I think he explained it to her outside though by the look of things.

Sorry for the extremely late reply. I just found this post today! Yep, she was a little confused to be sure. We both thought it was cool however. Take care...
