    Thanks Tim for the great job on the tracks this year... was AWESOME!

    Nice to see old friends and meet new ones as well... Great crowd, and I would have to say... not to many bad ones in the bunch. :lol3
    Thanks goes out to OBD and WRJim for offering me a bed in their cabin :huh... I was a little worried at first. But when I saw the loft and the climb to get to it, I knew I was safe...:rofl

    My vote is last weekend in Oct. or whenever! :freaky

    First off Tim, AWESOME RIDE, THANK YOU. I really enjoyed meeting all of you and had a great time, I just wish it was more often. Big thanks for the opportunity to join you guys and thanks to Mark for pointing it out to me. By the way, m poor little KLR probably hates KTM's right now and I don't think it has ever been pushed as hard as it was the first day chasing Peter and Jeff. If any of the Louisville area guys want to get out and ride for a day let me know. Tim (lives in J-town... I don't know your username) we talked about getting in some riding so shoot me a PM. Again, great meeting all of you on the ride and I will be looking forward to next year or whatever may come in between.

    Sorry I don't have any cool pictures or videos to share... Some crack head broke into my Jeep and wouldn't you know they only stole my camera and a $1.25 Redbox DVD. I still need to pick up another one or if any of you see a black Olympus waterproof camera on CL and it doesn't have a charger let me know lol. But! here's what my GPS said this morning before I left the house. Mark, you shouldn't be to far off of this depending on your Friday route.

    I rode up to Belmont from Louisville in a cold steady rain Friday after work and stayed at Jeff Cooke's country estate. Got there just in time to help him (a little) unload his GS.

    Found my 'waterproof' boots ain't waterproof. Lucky for me he had this handy-dandy boot dryer!

    Put the bikes in his garage and then we were off to Bloominton to eat and watch the UL football game.

    These are some pics from Jeff's "wall of fame" of him riding back in the day.

    Thanks guys!

    As most know, I'm a little snap shot happy. Didn't bring my good camera this trip as I wanted to try out my new Olympus Tough TG-1 water/shock proof camera. Worked great for the on bike stuff, not so much otherwise.

    =====================================================================================

    Back on the road.

    We always need someone to take a lot of photos. A lot of guys on here are getting older by the day and may start suffering from memory loss so we need something to remind them. :lol3

    Well I'm pretty appreciative of snap shot Mark and his pictures! Thanks for being the unofficial HNF photographer.

    Damn crack heads why did they need to steal my camera? Its not like they are going on vacation! Can you tell I'm sore about it?

    It looks like I missed a great ride. I hope to make it next year.
    I'm a little confused though, where was the picture with the sheriff this year? :lol3

    Now I know when next year's ride is, I'll try to plan accordingly.

    The Go pro is definitely on the "I gotta Have" list. Very cool.
    Really liked the wet tunnel shot.
