Maybe you need something like this, some poor sharpei had to ride from Cincinnati all the way to Alaska.

I found those under the AMA website > gallerys > sanctioned events > Nutcracker 200. They even were able to get me into one picture. Thx for the website. There's a picture of almost everyone that rode.

Some were riding the sofa. . .

Todays ride

Had a great ride today except the 07:30 ride from Logan to Lancaster to New Concord. Cold and Wet Fog

SR22 was the right choice out of Lancaster. Fog was so thick in some spots I had to let a car by, That only happens once every 5 Years with me. I used his tail lights for direction and warning so it was a fair trade. Once I thawed out with a cup of Coffee and met up with the Meef and the S10 the sun came up and burned off the fog. I tried to lead a ride without getting lost out east to Woodsfield and then south to Marietta on Magic SR26. After Lunch Meef led me to some more great roads back west. The fall colors were amazing. Thank you Mark for putting up with my need for curvy black asphalt. The dirt was fun too. I am good to go now. Had some great rides this R&R and can put the bike away in short term storage and head back next Tuesday to AFG. Sorry no photo's I blew by all the good stops.

Just walked in, great ride. I hooked up through Granville and Loudonville and dropped off the shirts.

Thanks for lunch.

Be careful on your next tour in hell.

Thanks for dropping the tee off, Deb told me you stopped by. She forgot to tell ya that those tire irons are out in my garage. I can mail 'em to ya if you're not in my neck of the woods again soon.

Thanks Brian, and be safe in the sandbox!!

Well now I really feel like shit for not coming. I didnt realize you was shipping out so fast. I rode around the block at 730a and said screw it due to the cold. I left the house again a few hours later and headed west to grab the tag.
