    You folks rock! This was a delightful trip! A great group of riders came out for this event; they all are wonderful people and wonderful riders -- I was very lucky to have a chance to ride with such a fine group of inmates. My hat's off to a bunch of new cohorts!

    There is a lot of work and planning that goes into putting a group event like this together and I want to personally say thank you to Mike and V, and to Kurt and his wife (sorry to have forgotten her name). I really look forward to more rides with the Norcal group! (Please don't tell anyone about just how off-the-hook these rides are :wink:)

    In 15 seconds the weather did this

    [​IMG]

    Windrat and I then caught up with the group to play follow the leader (if ya can) with Kurt. No action shots though, two hands on the bars was manditory. :ricky :wings

    My annual pic of Kurt and his camera was not so hot this year, but you can see him hiding behind the lens cover. :cry

    [​IMG]

    That's all for now. :wave I'll work on getting up what I have left this week end.

    A few pics from the ride.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    some where in Bear Valley.

    [​IMG]

    When we got back to camp I neglected to ask Kurt just where the hell we were wandering around all day so I don't really know where some of the pics were taken. :dunno At one point Kurt sent Windrat and I on ahead while he waited for the group to gather back up. While tootling :evil along on this ridge road that seemed familiar. At the end of the pavement (when we were to wait for the rest of the group) was an intersection with a forest service station. Deja vu. Out here in the middle of nowhere and not a clue where I was, I realized that I had been there a couple of years earlier. It was a most bizarre feeling. It was decided that gas was needed.

    [​IMG]

    After pumping a couple of I looked at the pump and saw that the gas was free. It pumped the gas but didn't meter it. No pic so I it must have been dementia from the altitude. :D


    And here we have (kinda) the famous Airhawk ejection seat. :huh

    Bigger Al runs a tight campfire. He requires you to raise your hand and wait to be called on so you may tell your version of the lie.

    Here's the group showing me their love.:raabia

    [​IMG]

    That 'bout it for the useable pic's, 'cept for this one on the way home

    [​IMG]

    and this one for Stonewall

    [​IMG]

    Again I will say I had a great time and enjoyed seeing some of the old and meeting some new.

    Ok Al the ball is in your court show your stuff. :D :lurk
