    Thanks to all, (especially Vico) a pretty good weekend. For an old timer I actually get to ride quite a bit and enjoy it a lot (usually solo or small group). What is more rare for me is large groups, out early and up late (bookoo by the fire pit) entertaining each other with stories, food, drink etc. bs'ing, laughing, jokes and just all around chuckleheadery. Oh yeah, did I mention food: gumbo, low country boil, ribs, pulled pork, chili, boudan, sausage, bacon to name a few. Anyways all good, had a blast, got the t-shirt and rode some too. Thanks again to all who contributed and just showed up to make it an epic event. Peace out.

    Well, although Titanium Karen is a great cook in the kitchen, she is a not so great photographer. So I am going to be a little light in the pics department this year because I was baby sitting our puppy, Voltage. She did mention the camera was acting up. But in those cases, the pics I remember her taking, just weren't there when we looked for them. Probably the battery due to the cooler temps. I will salvage what I can, but it won't be much. So all you people that attended and have pics, post them up. Especially the close up face shots. :jack

    Hate to repeat what has already been said, BUT, WOW! What an event. This was mine and FlaCrushers 1st Trot, and holy crap was it awesome. We are both so appreciative of everyone's effort to make the event so successful. The riding was all that we had hoped for and more. Here are some of my pics.

    Here is a pic from when I asked Tony if he had some of the special additive in his generator that is supposed to smell like reefer when it runs. It didn't smell like the reefer I used to breath in from second hand smoke. :D So he said maybe I wasn't getting enough of it and he helped by sticking the muffler up my nose. Still didn't smell right. But its the thought that counts.:photog

    Came back to a WFO business so don't have time to do proper post now but will throw up some pics from some of the groups I was lucky enough to get to ride with. They were all a hoot to ride with.

    OK so wadda you do when you start drank'n too early in the day, stumble into your preemo beemer, knock it over and there's no one around to help ya pick the 525+ lb pig up?

    To which Jon replies, "Well Garrett I'm damn glad you asked that question cause that's what just happened here. But it's no problem whatsoever cuz i dun ben to da 2 day bmw training school where the 1st day we spend 6 hrs trying to learn how to pronounce bmw. I' had it down in about 3hrs and 17 minutes."
    "The 2nd day tho was way cool, they lined up all the students, the main instructor tells us that his grandmother can ride a GS better than anyone in the school and to lay our bikes on the ground and take a good look,,,cuz thats the position it's gonna be in most of the time."

    Lemmee show how to do it
    1. The problem
    [​IMG]

    2. The solution...turn bars toward crash side, grab rack, lift bike up with straight back
    [​IMG]

    3. Get your hemorrhoids tucked back into your shorts and see the chiropractor asap
