    edit: Hi Sarah! I put the HL in the mail today for you.

    Appreciation for everyone who contributed to RRIII making it a wildly successful and memorable event. Great to make new acquaintances, exchange riding experiences and share camaraderie with fellow inmates. Hot weather was a welcome change for me even though it takes a few days to acclimatize. Looking forward to re-introductions at the next bash!

    Oh yeah, the Lost Found: 1. Goggles 2. headlamp (thanks for putting in fresh batteries my flashlight died after about an hour.) PM me.

    Ride on Dirk!

    Oh I can see I missed a good one. Stayed home since getting better and better but not quite there yet. I missed some good schwag and good times, huh? :cry

    When I go to Rio Nido again, it will make it all the more sweeter. :D

    Hey there! It was awesome to meet everyone, and to make the recent CA transplant feel welcome.

    I especially want to thank Tiny for taking care of RacerWife's "special" dietary needs: veggie chow and black tea with breakfast.

    It was a bummer that we couldn't make it out on Friday evening, but it was still a great time, and lovely weather for a ride down the coast on the way home.

    And, picking up vernacular from my Oakland neighbors... the food was HELLA good! :dg

    Thanks! I'm pretty sure we'll be seeing you next year!

    That was a great time friends! Great riding to and fro and in between; great friends, food, booze, weather, and repeat!

    Go Dirk!! It was impressive to see his bike and all the modifications that will be needed to accomplish his trek. It was educational and interesting to see him asking for input on a variety of unsolved issues. It really made us all feel part of it, and what an adventure he will have!

    Thanks VR for picking up my headlamp! I somehow lost that before bed Saturday night...:freaky .

    Until next time.
    AARRGGHH!!!

    Wow, I can't thank everyone enough for their generosity and support. It was definitely a little overwhelming (in a good way). :clap :clap :clap

    Thanks to Brad, Josh and Amy for organizing the event and the amount of thought that went into everything including the T-Shirt, banner and events.

    Thanks to everyone for coming and for participating in the raffle, all the well wishes, advice while I was working on the bike and just being a bunch of really nice people.

    Thanks to Jason from MX1 West for helping me out with great gear and for showing up at the event and bringing the Acerbis gear for prizes.

    Thanks to Rick, Vincent and Monte for donating such phenomenal items for the silent auction and a big thanks to all the other numerous sponsors that made this event possible.

    I also want to thank Don at Scuderia for putting up with me while deciding on a bike and helping me out with parts and advice.

    Thanks to Charlie Rauseo from Rally PanAm for always taking the time to answer my questions as well as bringing the rally bikes to the event.

    Thanks everyone, your support means a lot to me!!!

    I will keep you posted.
