Looks like a wonderful time was had by all. New Hampshire is home to me, and I had some great plans made, but the job took precedence and I spent the month, and particularly that weekend, relocating from Chicago (home for the last quarter century) to smack dab in the middle of Hoosier land. The dust has nearly settled and I hope to make it to Lebanon for a monthly lunch before too long, and hopefully meet with some of y'all. Clearly a group with their priorities straight.

Thanks for sharing the stories and photos. Motivates me for the next one.

I'm back home, too, but had less ground to cover than Texans Sam and Ken, and others from way off.  That said, and especially since Kathi isn't here for a few more days, I'm in the middle of doing nothing, and think I'll continue on that for awhile.   :wink:

While you are doing nothing, why don't you peck out the Norge story?

My publicist recommends I draw the process out to build suspense.   :azn:

I am sitting on the front porch now, culling the bazillion pix, putting captions to same, and recalling the fun (and lesser moments  :wink:).

Seriously, it is fun reliving it all.  What a blast.

Whoa.  It just turned noon, Kathi's at Fort Bragg, so it's "legal" to pop a beer a few beers and open the chip bag(s).  War is heck.   :boozing:

Again it will be held in John Day, Oregon. Walking distance to town and lots of motels. Nice campground with the damn motorhomes relegated to their own spot away from us campers. Talk about good riding country. Look for thee little skinny man wearing the doubleknit pants with the shirt that has a pocket protector.

See you there as it is only about 2,000 miles for us.

As Ken says it'll be in OR.  For most it's up and over to the Pacific NW.  Gary and Gerri Jenkins will be working on it.  Great venue.  Ice cream parlor right out the front gate.  Cool state museum right around the corner.  Fossil beds National Park nearby also.
There are no stupid questions.  There are however stupid people asking questions.

It's a bit more than that from Virginia but Fay and I are thinking about it.   It's inspiring to see all these guys from Oregon and Washington and Texas and such pulling into a New England rally, so that, combined with the fact that there may be an ice cream parlor right there, might tip the balance ....

Couple of nice restaurants close-by too.  Liquor store and Ace Hardware within 1/4 mile of the fairgrounds.  Town is friendly.

RandyT from RandyP in Michigan.
Great Rally well worth the ride to and from. We traveled through Canada with Lloyd & Pam Rolston from Brantford Ontario with my wife Louise on her 450 Rebel "FELON".
I wonder what the border folks thought of the license plate!  They never asked…… :bow:
The Saturday ride directed by Randy Tefft, was great and the photo stop had its moments!  The food service was great, the awards wonderful, especially the “old rider” mug to some guy from Michigan.
Hope to see you all again in the Midwest, or Oregon next year.

Randy.

When I go to Flickr, I only get one page of pics (up to the selfie at the rally site).

Is that Flickr doing it, or my old, weak browser, you think?

Get a faster connection ;)

Flickr does take a little while to load.

Hard to believe it was just a month ago.

Great time, met lots of great people,  drooled over lots of great bikes.

Hopefully this link works.
