5 Days of beautiful weather added up to 1,616 miles of positively perfect riding.

Had an outstanding run on 220 north of Covington & lunch at Paint Bank on the way home.


We did feel very welcome.

I love the Swinging Bride restaurant in Paint Bamk



PS... we now know that 7 adults - including three very tall folk - can fit in a Mitsubishi lancer.  :lol: :lol: :lol:


Wish we had a picture of that.

You can count double - 2 Fingers on 4 Wheels. 

Thanks for being there everyone.  You make riding more than just a road trip.

I'm curious, does anyone who attended the meet have Conjunctivitis?  I was diagnosed with it today.

Be careful with that it could develop into optical rectitis or even optalanalitis.  Both some serious shit.

Nice weekend lets do it again.  Hope your bike finds its way back together.

Apparently the antiseptic properties of Rye are somewhat lacking.

Not I.

However, just for the sake of safety, I think maybe I better put the Porsche in my garage until you heal. I'll be down tomorrow.
