we also had a detour just a few years ago so it sure looks like us tax payers are taking it in the shorts on this stone covered money pit. maybe the contract should have a performance/time warranty.

I was there last year. Rode as the last bike in the whole parade.

I have a family reunion this year....the divorce (if I missed it) would cost more than I can afford at this point in my life.

Ok - the ducks are lining up. Just got one trip to drop...that's a pretty good sized duck which may be hard to move.

The Thunderbolt has rebuilt tail feathers and a re-welded driving light mount so I can ride once again to the TSMR.

Somehow it always works out.

Who am I staying with?

Can't imagine SG/BG feeling "pressure"! Not after riding that A65 across country and back and up and down ... !

Really looking forward to seeing everyone. Installing a luggage rack and a voltmeter on the Norton and ready to go soon ....

Cool. Been really busy. Thanks. 404-791-0704.

I may have to drive through the night to make it there...

Nope! The trip dropped. I'll be there Friday AM. I think I'm camping my way to the TSMR. Monday at TWO. Tuesday at Ironhorse. Wednesday at Blueridge Motorcycle campground. Thursday ? Windy's. Are people at Windy's before the TSMR?

Anybody interested?

Be careful if you do!!

1) Tired

2) Invisible to drunks and cell zombies

3) Deer.

We need you there in one piece!

I've convinced the Fabulous Fay to ride with me, although it doesn't include an offer of camping all week. I think our 20 days of camping in the UK on the A10 in 2008 is still filling her camping quota.

If you can pull off having her come on the trip, you get the Macho Man of the Year award for sure ....

Well I begged but she is not coming. Sounds like it's just me. I'm not giving up though but she has a good out on Saturday.

Plan B:

Monday - Ironhorse NC.
Tuesday - Blueridge Motorcycle Campground.
Wednesday - Switchback.

My kids say...."it ain't a holiday without firearms"

NOTE: Turn the sound off.....if you're viewing it in photobucket it's messed up...and I sorta freaked out and forgot I was behind the camera....this was our third attempt (yep that's 3 TVs) and we FINALLY got the kids to hit it at the same time. laughing

Yep....Thanksgiving at the Gray's...get through eating dinner, then drag something out of the house and shoot it!!! laughing

Pokey
