Nice pics. Glad u could make it.
Very nice to meet and put faces to names! Pics to follow... just back from making construction noises at my son's house! Thanks folks!
^^^^ makes "construction noises 24/7?
How you feeling Joe?
Good to meet you, too, Spanky.
Not from the 313 miles on a 250 !!
Thanks Joe for being my headlight
Here are my pics and vids. Not going to do a ride report this time, so feel free to continue posting everything here. Thanks
Forecast for the ride called for no snotcicles, thankfully.
My plan to mount these buckets pannier-style didn't materialize...
Breakfast was good and we actually left earlier than scheduled.:huh
Our ride out to AHR was pretty smooth, especially the first half. Incidentally, we toured numerous golf courses and municipal lakes.
Stopped at Claremore Lake for a BS session, field repairs, and to wait on OkieTrailBoss.
I was concerned about _cy_ and others with low ground clearance at certain points along the route, but all did well.
Newner decided to ride through a ditch and picked up some monofilament.
Much of the route after the lake was improvised, but turned out to be quite fun.
Arrived at AHR about noon.
Partial Group Picture
We had epic brisket, chicken, burgers, hotdogs, etc...
I only took a few pics at the afternoon trail ride.

Joe had a painful biff. We were there to mock and degrade him. Hope the shoulder is better, Joe.
I'm sure Rick will share the video, but I ended the day with a busted front fender. Amazing how much mud and debris is blocked by a fender.
My helmet looked like this when we stopped for fuel.
Fun times as always.
The "loot pile" at AHR is quite deceiving because most of us made cash donations due to the biggest need being hay. Throttlemeister and others were heroes for driving 4-wheel vehicles with hay and supplies instead of enjoying the days' rides.
I counted 24 bikes ranging from thumpers to Goldwings to Guzzis. The food was excellent and AHR were great hosts as always. Weather was perfect- sunny, calm, and warm.
Thanks for posting the pics Jason. I think everyone had a good a good time and enjoyed the great food. I hope the event was successful for Angel Horse Rescue.
RDJ, what's up with your bike taking a nap in the middle of the day? Does it really take four guys to wake your trusty steed? Tomski, you look intrigued.
My wife and I had a very enjoyable ride up to Inola. The people were friendly, the food was good, and AHR appears to be a well-run operation simply in need of funding. We were happy to contribute.
I would like to thank the group of riders that caught up to us as we were heading south on 4220 RD towards HWY 51, after we left. My wife is not experienced on anything less than pristine pavement and was a bit nervous as she led south, slowly. Not a one of the much,much faster riders who caught up to us blew by her, but stayed back, patiently waiting until they hit HWY 51. Thanks, guys!
I was plotting something. I ended up riding it up that hill for him, so I could brag about it for the rest of my life
I tried it once before with Newner's KLR, but it didn't work too good
BTW Snowball - remember- [Viesh-bee-tzky]
If you were on BMW's that was Shawnee Bill, Robocop and myself. We were in no hurry as Shawnee Bill's rear tire was on cord. I still can't believe he rode like a mad man all the way back to Shawnee on a rear tire with a cord strip instead of a chciken strip..
I have it good authority that he was riding on the good side of the tire. :eek1
Also I heard a new tire is already on the bike and it's ready to roll!
Now if we can just get him off the couch!!
Tthat was us.
A note of thanks from Tamie (AHR founder)...
Just wanted to say "thank you" again and let you know just how great your group of riders is! Funds and donated items totaled approx. $2,500!! How awesome is that? This really gives us a boost - financially and mentally - by relieving some of the pressure/stress and helps us continue to take care of these horses. We were also able to get a couple of contact numbers for hay sources from your members, which we will be getting in touch with this week and see what we can get arranged. We really appreciate all your work in getting this event organized and put together.
On a side note, someone left a woman's watch sitting on the shelf of the smoker - please ask if anyone is missing it :)

So where are all the other pictures? Post them here!!
A cool fire truck and Throttlemeister's new bike with a bale of hay. By the utilitarian designs I deducted that it's probably a new KLR in red:
