I've had a blast on past GT rides. This will be my 4th year. So many stories, so many new places I have found. Also, great food found along the way!

Strawberry Point, IA [USA Grand Tour] Big damn strawberry!


Altamont, SD [USA Grand Tour] Rode around the town three times before spying this back in the trees.


This is just a really good picture of my bike in Minnesota, on the way to the Bonzai Rally in Wisconsin.


This was on the way to Martinsburg, NE where we stopped for a huge hamburger at Bob's Bar. Shooter always has to sneak one of these in every year, whether I notice right away or not.

This will be my 4th GT! It is something I look forward to all year and can not get enough of doing. It gets me to a LOT of places I would have never gone to nor enjoyed.....like Gooseville WI population 6.

This will be #7 for me. I finished in 5th place back in 2009. This will be my Dad's 3rd GT - it's a great excuse to get out and ride!

Sounds like a pretty good time. I was worried you guys were dressing up as pirates and taking roadies while speaking in seaworthy language.

If you are on the registration list recently posted, you should be receiving it by the first of April.
I believe the flags were made at the end of last week and were mailed out on the 28th.
