Checking in after SW5 - recap

Feel free to summarize and post your adventure and pics here.
My ride was amazing as always!!!
8700km=5400mi 12 states (Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and home to Ontario CANADA!

Don (Cyclops) and I headed to meet with Ben and Wanda (Arkieglides) at the Loveless Cafe in Tennessee, but not before we spent the first night in around Covington Kentucky. Only one quick spray of rain. At the Lovless Cafe we ordered lunch the next day after meeting Ben and Wanda then the skies opened up and rained on our little picnic.
It soon ended when we hit the Natchez Trace. What a beautiful peaceful road!

One night in Tupelo we then met up with the Gypsy tour in Vicksburg, had dinner and toured the battle museum the next day before riding some nice backroads to the Bonnie and Clyde Museum.
Terrell would be the next night stay with the Gypsies. Mexican dinner at Dos Aces (was delicious)then off to Luckenbach Texas before landing in Kerrville for SHARKWEEK V.
We had an amazing time. Greeted some old friends and made some new friends. Toured some legendary roads of Texas.
Sipped from a jar (thank you very much) Had a couple pool parties even with a few Canadians and even had some honorary Canadians join in the fun! It was hard to say good bye. Thanks to the crew that made it happen. Y'all know who you are.
It seems most of the time Hurricane Bill was daring us but for the most part I have to say he didn't put and end to our fun like the weather forecasters threatened. Sharks don't fear water.

At the end of the rally Don, Jim and myself pulled out from Kerrville Friday morning and headed for Horny Toads HD where along the way Tom joined us on the road. The four of us stopped at Temple HD and soon after, just as Jim took his cutoff to head home, Tim joined us on I-30.
Jim (JRMAC) cut off to head north at Texarkana, Tim (OldNerdGuy) turned off somewhere around little rock and Tom (Teejay) continued north on 75.
No issues for any of us on the ride that couldn't be resolved without a trip to the HD dealer for minor things.
All in all I rate this in the top three of five sharkweeks I've been to. Next year it's in Canada and the bar is set high. I hope to see you all in CANADA for SHARKWEEK VI. (wow six years of this is hard to believe)
enjoy the ride,
