- Cleveland Brown Fans are okay... at times. Sorry Dmize!

- Gatherings like these are about socializing. Shorter rides...YES. One longer ride like Skyline Drive (about 350) is okay if it is scenic. We all get enough riding coming and going it turns out.
All of these are great I just got tickled at the herding cats remark that's funny

I think the ultra conversion is calling.......

I learned that shark riders are a different breed or rather they come from a different skool
- people were quick to help each other
- everyone knew how to ride in a group
- no one got stupid or made you feel like an idiot for wearing a helmet.

Thanks!

Helmet wearing is OK
Everyone has different bars
people get by without tourpaks
you will find every road construction route
Lots of laughing
must have new TP hinges
dropping 50 dollars on windshield tickets works!
Canadians are cool and have to spend 30% more than we do in the states

You are sorry you missed it!

A few from me:
  • Dinner at 7:00 really means dinner at 6:30
  • Breakfast at 7:30 really means breakfast at 8:30
  • Delaware is farther away than you might think
  • Some people from Cleveland are actually pretty cool
  • The quality and thrill of clean undies and socks cannot be overstated
  • If you ride a Road Glide, it is highly likely that your name is either Jim, Tim, or Ken.

What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?

... or a Hi-Viz jacket. Thank You!

I learned
- the organizers are flexible and willing to alter the plans for everyone's benefit.
- hanging out at the hotel is more fun than I anticipated.
- we need to increase the number of women riders. (Might not happen. My wife says it's more of a nerd's bike.) (BTW I like women nerds, too.)
- I don't have enough money to add the things I saw and liked on other bikes.
- I knew it already, but Chis mentioned the Lincoln Highway also goes from Pittsburgh to Illinois and Iowa. (Don't know how many brick sections are left, but I'll bet Chris knows where all the gravel sections are and will try to take us there.)
- small restaurants on Rte. 30 would like to have more advance notice when 25 people are stopping for lunch.
- options are good and necessary, even if one of the options is to stay at the hotel and do nothing.
- $5 worth of tickets doesn't win you anything.
- I need to make the camera mount work on the RG. There were many scenes I'd like to have captured while rolling.

2017 FLTRXS, Givi V56 Topcase, Windvest 10", National Cycle Hand Deflectors, Rapid Transit Tank Bag. My last bike was 2014 Triumph Trophy SE. Before that: 2010 FLTRX.

Funny you say that Tim because here is a great image from Westside, Iowa. It is the highest elevation on the Lincoln Highway and is an original alignment that was never paved.

Lots of fun and be ready to clean your bike after this segment. It is pretty long. Are you up for it? I am ready to go now.

I agree! Hoping Shark week hits the west coast soon

Sure, but I need to get new tires and brake pads first.

Yeh Tim, you're pretty much screwed where ever it is. You gotta drive about 200mi before you even get to the first east-west interstate. Guess that's what ya get for living where you have riding weather all year. lol

Things Ive learned:

- Canadians talk funny and pride themselves with gay shirts
- Group riding doesnt require any gear higher than 2nd.
- picnic tables and beer make your sides hurt
- sandwiches from Pastrami end up with soggy bread
- $3 to share a sandwich blows (lincoln ride)
- Animated people have the best stories
- sometimes an authoritive hand jesture will stop traffic
- Need a beer? How about a case?
