    I got back home a bit before 11:00 this morning. I had a blast. It was fun riding with Jimmy and Jason on Friday and it's always fun hanging out with everybody around the fire.
    :freaky

    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.

    You boogied! I was still snoozing at 8am... :snore I stopped by a old friends cabin in pleasant view then made a stop at my granddads house off Hopkins Road in Richmond. Made it home around 5pm.


    Even though it was a short w/e for me, I had a great time. Great company around the campfire... :kumbaya

    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. :thumb 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..........

    :lol3

    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. :lol3
