    Let me know if you need a tire in vstrom/gs size. I have a set of gently used somethings I'm sure.

    Michelle and I thought real hard about coming this weekend but we decided it was a bit too much too soon after getting back from our respective trips, mine to Africa and Michelle's Alaska cruise. Sorry folks! Enjoy.

    I'm going to try to be there by 6 or 7. I have an ear infection that is causing migraines. Just took some drugs and heading to bed for a couple hours.

    Home. Safe. Showered. Only had rain between Independence and Boone. Otherwise a pretty good ride home. LOTS quicker than taking the parkway!

    Pics will be forthcoming.

    Nice ride home last night. 3 deer crossed in front of me 10 miles from camp. Got slowed down and tagged the second one in the ass. No problems. After that 10 minutes of rain. Then a real nice ride the rest of the way

    Apparently I'm not much of a "people" photographer! Just as well as most of you are probably in the witness protection program!

    I'd like to thank everyone that came to the Gathering. I really enjoyed hanging out with everyone. Thank you Tracy for all your hard work. I ate wayyyyyy to much but I ain't complaining. Thanks also to RealOldDualsportGuy for the muffins and snacks. Sorry that you weren't able to join us this year.

    I miss all y'all already!

    Here are a few of my photos. The indoor ones are from a visit to the Blue Ridge Music Center along with CaptnSlo. We traded bikes for part of our ride, which was fun.

    I had a blast. It was great to meat more inmates. Thanks HappyRiding for putting this together and to LadyDraco for the great food. It was a rude awakening riding back down into the blast furnace of July in the SC midlands.

    I got a rear flat about 40 minutes from home, and what was the rescued at RDV became the rescuer and towed me on home.

    Edit: aargh, was trying to direct link pix from Google Photos; not worky good. Photos forthcoming.
