Great pictures. ;-T  May I suggest that when one post pics of people, please label whom we are looking at.  While many know each other on the forum, they are many of us who recognize handles, but not faces. Just my humble request.  8)

I have in the past labeled, captioned and given links for pictures over the years only to notice that many times, the audience was limited, non existent or non appreciative.  Its a great deal of time and work in editing, uploading, sorting, posting and then giving captions.  I choose not to give the time and effort any longer for those reasons, however this is an open forum and anyone may comment on the pictures of their choosing.

The Missouri boys made it home just fine, just in time for me to do about 3 hrs of yardwork, I'd sure rather run a LeMans than a weedeater!   :wife:

 **C Made it home fine, but the slightly off camber head winds made it an interesting ride. (Hanging on for dear life and trying to stay in my lane) Had a good time. We definitely need more bikes next year, even if you just ride in for the day. Freezing rain and drizzle today, back in the 70"s later in the week.  ???

Ride Safe

Hello to all.
It was a windy trip across Northern NM and the AZ reservations. I had a "close encounter of the tumbleweed kind" in AZ. about a 20 pounder i figure. It hit the bike not me! Front end. Got a turn signal,  field repaired with a ball point pen and duct tape(don't leave home without it.) and a few new scratches.
Ah the wild country. When I crossed the river into CA there were white caps!

Thanks to Doug for the food,Tom for the home brew and tractoring the picnic table with his machine to a convenient spot near the fire and tending same. And to Dusty for never ending stories and philosophy (guess I got a few in too) Also Johns beautiful Le Mans. To Dave for braving the wind just for a short visit and of course to Michael D for the pic. I did wonder who that old guy standing with Dusty and Dave was 'till i figured out it was me!
 
Here is to looking forward to next years "wild bunch not a rally cookout and lie swapping meeting". Dusty picked a perfect spot

      Mike,     Glad to hear your mission has carried on, the ball point pen is a nice touch! Maybe you should change your name to McGuyver. I keep thinking of that conjak of yours, MMMMMMM

Dusty, this is the lovely wife, you would think he would invite me to go, but he hasn't.  Now I find out that this Luap deal is about 15 miles from my favorite casino.  I bet I am at the casino long before he even gets to Missouri.
