    I have a couple of pictures of Harleys. When I get home tonight or tomorrow, I'll post them if I can figure out how.

    Actually, it says I can't post attachments. Anyone know why?

    AJ, send me your email address and I'll email them to you.

    In Apple Valley this past weekend at the car sale place in the KMart parking lot at Bear Valley and Kiowa were four two stoke Harleys. Some were sad, some not so much. Can't remember the prices (4 for $2400?) but if someone is interested they may be back there this weekend.

    Once again Ed Crowell at 83 was the oldest finisher. Probably on his Matchless Twin with 4 inches of travel and 400 something pounds.

    I would have but my bike wouldn't run and I thought I had a couple broken ribs and a broken collar bone. I didn't get to urgent care until 4:30 on Saturday. It was an adventure. I will be there next year I have to finish what I started.

    Okay, Steve, that's a good excuse.

    Hope you're feeling much better by now, although if you did break your collarbone, that will take some time to heal.

    See ya next year!

    Well, DirtRider, you missed out on the free goody bags we gave all the riders who attended, tons of prizes for all the riders who had their rider number called, and raffle prizes that were high-end items.

    Oh well, there's always next year. Maybe you'll be in better shape and you'll last through the evening. :D
