I'm about loaded up and ready for departure tomorrow morning. Lots of stuff. I need a bigger trailer. 92 degrees here (southern Oregon) yesterday. The trailer felt like 120 inside.

Petaluma or bust.

Just completed a mini marathon. 700 miles in 12 hours. Old van getting about 9 mpg pulling our little vintage trailer. Nice campground. Got here just before dark, 8PM, so didn't get to see much except two beautiful Goldies and a nice A10. Camped out in RV space 156.

Hey Ron...is there a general meet up/hangout tomorrow Sunday at the KOA in the evening? My bike is not ride-able and I'm dying a slow death here in Peta, listening to the bikes swirl around my house. I was thinking of coming out to the camp to hang out and chew the fat.

I'll come over today and then this eve. Not sure I'll know how to find you but I'll ask around. I'll be the guy wandering about without his bike. I really want to pick brains regarding Buster's 3 year oil issue. I'm totally stumped and not riding because of it.

Here is the last of my pics. I am throwing these up here and hoping that someone finds them interesting.



After dinner at the Cattleman Restaurant. We all had salad. I guess because that is what cattle would eat?

Great photos Ken, I had a blast with you, Rusty and all of the Britbike guys. The meal at the Cattlemans was great (as was the beer :bigt ), but I think you forgot about my half rack of ribs yum! (and I had already eaten one shocked )

I'll add a few photos in a day or so from the rally.

I thru together a quick video of some random video clips and images of the "organized chaos" at the Tuesday Sonoma lineup for the photoshoot. It was blast to see all of the bikes lined up. I think there was about 185 machines.

A bit warm, yes. I was down to a t-shirt, like the day in downtown Petaluma. But, no wind in Sonoma. Nice.

I've watched a few other videos of the rally on there so far.
