It's on my calendar...again.  It's always a fun event, good food, good facilities, just a nice time.

Ride safe.

I had a great time there at the National a few years ago.  I'm glad they're keeping it going.  Hope the heat isn't too bad.

I did not go because I have only one day I could be there....Saturday. It's not quite on my agenda to ride a 350 mile trip for one meal that would cost me 55 bucks. These rallies never have single day prices.  I can have a much more leisurely day & ride staying a bit closer to home at 1/2 the total cost. Maybe next year. It was fine when I could cover it in two days time.

Looks like great weather today. 70 and blue skies right now where I am. Hope you all have fun. One day maybe I'll make it but the family has too much going on today.

Well, hope & pray for Pyro Dan who got hit by a car & trashed his bike. Sounded like a good one w/around 160 folks.

What?  Is he ok?  Dan is a terrific guy- helped me (and many others) many times.  I'll have positive thoughts for him-

I was coming back from Toppling Golith when I saw the flashing lights, emts fire, police, etc. They routed us through a motel parking lot. Just got a glance and saw what could have been Pyro Dan's EV.  :sad:
Word from the knowledgeable say he's going to be ok. (well as ok as Dan can be..)  :evil: :grin: :boozing: At least no head trauma or broken bones as far as I know. Scooter is trashed. The guy can't catch a break, but I guess it could have been (much) worse. Offered to haul his camper to Wisconsin, but he'll come get it at the campground.
