Eggy should be proud to see the passion all the inmates are expressing! Whether one has had the honor of a 10 mile or 10 country adventure with Eggy, he has etched his name on your spirit as all have etched his shell. Being passionate about your adventure is a true testament to Eggys influence and meaning. He is more than a "rock" egg, he is a symbol of all who has had the privilege to lay claim to him.
Giving TH the benefit of doubt is probably the best course of action and shows compassion. We don't know his adventure, all we know is he was last seen with the symbol that represents many journeys.

Missing My Precious

Nothing gets folks to talk to each other like a missing family member.
More posts per day than before he was missing.

There is always a bright side.

Wow. Now let's find out where TH lives and go knock on his door and ask him where the egg is.

A mutual friend, TH, and I all have Super Teneres and live somewhat in the same area. Those two both work and ride together and both are "missing." Unfortunately, I don't know anybody else who actually has the address for TH so I can't just ride over and ask.

I haven't talked to either in a couple of months, but they were looking forward to the Texas ride. More, both guys were talking about the need for a long ride and hoped to do it before winter. My guess with the way those two ride long distance, they've dropped off the grid and will show up with an additional 10,000 miles on the odometers.

Both guys get work travel assignments that may pop up and suddenly take them out of touch.

Those are some of the reasons I so strongly think that we need to give TH the benefit here.

Except TH posted on the Rally page on OCT 22 that he was home and had a great time at the rally.

All this angst and handwringing over a stone egg goes on while a big old nut is hanging in a rusting cold cabinet waiting for someone to come to his rescue!



It's not like there is no where to ride...

Which was one reason I mentioned work.

Besides, those two are able to go from DC to Key West just because.
When I meant a long ride - you get the idea.

Negative. I was out an about that weekend riding (not doing the rally), but I never did run into any of the BigTex riders.

Altho I was only a 1 time carrier of Mr. Eggy, I too think we should wait just alittle bit longer on Mr. TH. (I do think he will show up before too long, but I AM the type that likes to think the best of folks.)

C'mon Mr. Eggy.....whereyaat????

So why do you think he would ride all the way to Texas. Then ride home and post on another forum that he was home. But not post in this forum.

Now considering a business trip of some time. Where would he go, where he could log in this forum but not be able to post?? because he has visited every couple of days since we started getting worried

things are not adding up.
