    I had an absolute blast hanging out with all of your weirdos this weekend. Thank you SOOOOO much to our hosts. Every single member of the staff was absolutely amazing all weekend. You guys really know how to make a bunch of obnoxious moto trash feel welcome. :freaky

    HUGE thanks to ThumperX for trusting me with her new NC700X. The bike performed flawlessly, and I had a blast riding it. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I only took a few pics, so you guys get off light. :lol3

    Shortly after arrival, I was stuffing my face with gloriously tasty mac n cheese with bacon and BBQ brisket. :evil YUM!

    Gerg had a bit of a head start, I think:

    The usual band of surly FFs were on hand for the shindig. Here are a few of their beautiful faces:

    Had a great ride on Saturday, led the the beautiful and talented Ms. Cootz. After the ride (and a couple of beers, of course) the swimming pool was just too inviting to ignore. A relaxing dip was promptly ruined by whatever this is (:rofl Ben):

    Not a close enough view? OK, here you go. (He sure does have a purdy mouth....) :huh:eek1:freaky

    First, a hearty and sincere THANK YOU to the Rally Services and Roadhouse staffs. Without them there would be no fun.

    This was the most exciting weekend I have spent in a long time, and then I got to the Melee and the fun really started.

    Nice to see you all again! :clap

    You even planned on extra entertainment by ordering us a late night drunken pool fence jumper! :lol3
