Before diner we line up the BSAs for a group photo
[Linked Image]

Then we decided to let Mike join in wink
[Linked Image]


It got cold !!! After dinner we hung out outside our hotel room and made sure that there wasnt going to be any booze left for someone to have to carry home. shocked
But did I say it got COLD!!! It got COLD!!! But I slept really well and as the New England lot had planned an early start ... We were all up early.... It was Cold !!! Like 40 degrees Cold...
[Linked Image]

But we all met up at the Dinner for breakfast
[Linked Image]

Where Richard gave Bill a run for his money.
[Linked Image]
[Linked Image]

But Bill wasn't having any of that malarky and doubled down.. wink
[Linked Image]

Then we went our separate ways . And great One State Mountain Ride under our belts .... Good times and great people..
Thank Mike for finding all of those great curvy roads

I headed to Williamsport to see the grandkids and hung out there the rest of the day.... Dont get to see them as often as Id like too... Is the OSMR an excuse to see them? Or , Is seeing them and excuse to ride ? smirk

[Linked Image]

Must run in the family wink
