Toy run
« on: November 10, 2019, 05:54:43 PM »
Did a Toy Run today for the first time in over 20 years today. Was fun. This one was in Newton, KS (pop 19,000). I would guess there was about 1,000 bikes. I was the only Guzzi that I am aware of in a sea of H-Ds but got quite a few lookers. Nice three wheeler behind my T-3.
Had several straight pipe H-Ds around me that every time we went under an overpass or went by a group of people along route they had to blip throttles to redline. Got old fast.

 Toy runs can be fun , we had one here for about 10 years , unfortunately once the few folks who kept it organized decided to not be involved it died . Tulsa still has one , but the crowd is just too large for me to deal with anymore . Onya for participating John .

Does make one feel nice and macho to the the one true rugged individual in the crowd. :evil:

Our's is always the 1st weekend of December. I'm thinking I'll go but be one of the last riders to leave the start and avoid the 5 miles of clutch hand workout, but still donate a toy for some little tyke. We have THOUSANDS show up if the weather is tolerable. It's always quite the social event here. Fun get together.
Not anti social, pro solitude.
