What a fantastic weekend... Great camaraderie and amazing riding.


Guy, Thanks for the update on Johnstown Jason. I trust he made it the rest of the way safe and sound.
Cool meeting and riding with you Tony. I'll post some pics from the helmet cam.

I got back from Louisiana last night. What a great rally. Perfect campground, not so great roads to ride, but the food and the cajun hospitality made it all worthwhile. Even managed to win the long distance award with 1300 miles one way.

Coming home was way better than going down in the rain and the cold fronts. Had a SW tailwind the whole way home. Ran a steady 75 mph (GPS not speedo) and got 44-45 mpg the whole way too. Not bad for an ancient old high mileage twin.

Glad to hear everyone had a large time at the Brrr ride. Maybe one day I'll ride and camp with you all again.

Oh, you were talking about the bike.

Sorry..........



Seriously, welcome back and glad you had a good time. The Brrr shows no signs of letting up and the KOA knows we'll be there next year. Hopefully, you'll be able to make it.

Hey Mickey... I saw a neat little chain saw when I was at lowes today. Battery powered... It was really light too, 4.5 pounds. A little expensive though.
I bet that would work great around camp.

Maybe Santa Claus will bring it to you.
