We'd be remiss in not mentioning the *really nice* seat work by the King of Fleece. I left my phone in the van so I wouldn't lose it this year,  :evil: so I don't have any pix, but it was outstanding.  :thumb:

Here is the rest of the story .

 Bert Remington won the raffle bike , and has generously offered it up for sale in the form of a donation to the board . We have settled on a price and a purchaser .

 Congratulations to David Welch (Sickbay 987) , a long time member of the Guzzi family . You may remember that David and his wife Colleen lost their '95 California in an accident coming home from the last National in Iowa , so this seems fitting . David had purchased raffle tickets for the bike, and seems to be excited to return to the Guzzi world after a short absence . David has promised to give this bike a good home , and he surely will  :bow:

 Pictures to follow next week .

Glad to hear that deal came together!   :thumb:

 Anyway , thanks Bert , and thanks to everyone who helped make this happen .

 Dusty

So happy you're back on a guzzi although you really rock that Harley even in the rain.

Ride safe,
Hugs to Colleen and the kids.
Ah heck, a big hug for you too brother.
