Things I learned at Sharkweek;
-Roadglide.org sponsors are very generous
-Roadglide.org members are cool (at least the ones that showed up)
-Americans can drink beer too (well some of them)
-people from Alabama talk funnier than some Canadians
-three second green lights in Gettysburg rush hour are useless for keeping a group of roadglides together
-a bike that is not a road glide looks funny riding in a pack of roadglides
-a bike with one headlite is a cyclops
-everyone rides well in a group

great meeting YA'LL and hope we do it again real soon

It's possible to win to many windshields
Yellow helmet on an orange bike can be spotted easily in a parking lot.
I like cannoli.
I like Bruster's Ice Cream
Brick roads prove I need a better shock set up.
Baggers take up a lot of parking space
Parking down hill on a road in the middle of a small town really pisses cars off.
Our sponsors really did their part

- RG.org members were all very cool
- sitting with the dis-functional people for dinner is FUN
- boots make u look like a biker, but tennies make my feet smile!!
- I packed way to many clothes
- not all steelers fans suck as bad as i thought they did
- the alabamie boys love the corners (Kevin scared me more than a few times)
- dont ride close to any bikes that I like, because all u think about it the need to purchase items.
- Under Armor undies work and are worth their weight in gold
- my bike is really plane.. i need to get on the ball
- I'm going to go poor from buying
1. lowers
2. tour pack
3. back rest
4. new bars
- I didnt cherish my iPod as much as I thought I would
- need to send my seat to MCC to have it lowered and move be back some
- take an extra day of vaca on the backside of the trip. work on Monday sucked
- don't let truck drivers trick you into rides longer than the planned route

I had a great time and everyone was amazing. I really wish I had a good group of folks like those at Shark Week to ride locally with.

Well....you could consider moving to Pittsburgh.

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

Just one tail light could have hidden meaning?
Cincinnati don't have chit on pitt.
RoadGlide.org riders are the most hi-tech bikers I've ever been around.
I need to study up on hi-tech gadgets.
Ditch the MP3.
I guess they don't have beer in Canada?
I may just keep wearing my helmet.
Gettysburg digs bikers, just don't ask them for directions!
This crew knows how to throw a party, Thanks!
