    Great time, good company, VERY nice to meet some new folks.
    Made it home by 3:00 with a LOT of traffic on I-5. I have GOT to find a better way south from the Bay Area without adding another 100 miles.

    Thanks Brad and crew, and Josh for all the hard work in keeping us entertained.

    Thanks to Brad & Josh and all the crew at the Roadhouse for another great time!:freaky

    It was good to see everyone as always. So glad you do this twice a year! Annie enjoyed herself and is happy to have met many of you. Others, well. :eek1

    Hope everyone had a dry and safe ride home. (I know there were a couple of riders that seemed to be determined to get lost on the way home.) Hope they made it. :lol3

    Had a great time again!

    Best overheard quote of the weekend,

    "this is camping, there is no under ware in camping" :rofl

    Picked up a nail somewhere in the brand new Pilot rear. Computorless came to the rescue with a full plug kit. A little bit of an extended stay in Tres Pinos for the repair and we were back rollin'

    Saw a good size pack of wild pigs and a very large bunch of turkeys on Indian Valley.

    Thanks again to the whole Roadhouse crew!!!! :freaky

    Another great weekend at the Roadhouse! Nice day Sat just relaxing.

    The Flattrack races in Santa Rosa were good,as soon as the main events started the rain started and never stopped while I was there,but the heats/semis/etc were good.Spent some nice time riding home in thick fog and rain and bumper to bumper traffic idling on 29.

    No matter how much I do that I never get enough.

    All in all a fun 3 days out and about.:1drink

    Back safe and sound after an extra day in the redwoods. Turned out to be just what the Dr. ordered.
    Thanks to everyone who attended; the usual suspects who continue to make these events memorable, the new faces that keep things fresh and interesting and to Brad and the rest of the Roadhouse staff for setting all of our plans in motion, making sure everyone is fed, watered and happy.

    Obviously all ADV events are different...
    I know that this event offers things that others don't and lacks in other departments, but I really like the feel of these weekends that you all have helped us create over the years.

    You guys are the best.
    Thank you again,
    Josh

    This event lacks nothing! It's just a different atmosphere than some other events, and that is a good thing. :clap

    A big thanks to Brad, Josh, and the incredibly hard-working staff of the Roadhouse for putting up with we drunks (ahem!) and for treating us like the favorites in the family. Truly, we cannot beat good food, good drink, great company, all in a beautiful setting. :freaky

    It was a great time. Thanks to all! I had rain most of the trip back and even low sided it on on a corner by Calistoga with a 100 yard slide. Good gear allowed for just new wear marks on the bike. Ha ha. An eventful weekend for sure!

    Lacking? Its the only ADV gathering I make a point of going back to. I like the smaller group and friendly folks,then theres the Redwoods/coast,and the ride over on backroads is always good.

    Brad and Josh and their co-horts always go way out of their way to make sure were happy,even us goons who get up too damn early.

    Thanks guys and gals,again.
