Your encounters are not the sort of thing I like to hear about as we have had very near misses with both beast & bird during trips in your country.

Just glad Dick that you seem to be reasonably OK.

My supervisor has allowed me to come on up. I'll be bringing my new to me 73 Triumph Tiger.

Should be there Thursday mid morning.

Look forward to seeing everyone!

well it looks like it was a success despite all the inconveniences that had to be overcome. the route was figured out a week and a half before the ride with a test run a few days later. the BBQ was a no brainier, after all the Q is also a tradition. some things that was missing was the picking, fog on the parkway, rain on the parkway during the LONG drone back. on a good note we had a campfire every night, great time with the story swapping and seeing some of the gang. I just want to thank everyone that took the time to come out during these times we are in.

PS it looks like all made back home safe and sound.

Steve, I need to ask our core group for input (late summer?) and I'm working with our good friends up north to come up with a date. When we have that nailed down I'll start a new thread something along the lines of " BritBike.com Reunion Camp".

I'm not good at mailing lists but you know me.......I can tear up a message board. I'll try to get it started ASAP ( come in GACracker)

TWO WHEELS ONLY SUCHES........late summer. EVERYONE IS WELCOME.........especially those of you who haven't had a chance to join in before (RAF....that means you bud)

I don't need to tell some of you but this is exactly how some of these long term friendships got started.

I PROMISE to be on my best behavior and will TRY to NOT repeat the SAME OLD campfire stories I've bored you with for years. (Bless you all for putting up with them)

Details to follow.

Hope to see ya this summer.........your friend in NC, USA Gordon Gray

TWO is a worthy spot! Been there a few times, riding or observing the True Grits 50cc ride.
I'll be there if I can!

Not only am I a dedicated flip phone user, I keep it turned off till I need it to make a call or if I know someone is going to call me. Less distractions in life that way.

Mikey, the idea here is not to need to send you a PM to turn your phone on before we call. It will tell you when SHE s calling so you can pretend not to hear it.
