**The official we made it home from shark week**

What a great week, with a awesome group of people. Hope everyone else makes it home safe. Thanks to all the people who put this together and the work they did. See everyone in Texas next year, if not before.

We made it last nite. We had to leave early to attend my son's induction to WVU School of Dentistry. He really wanted to go to Shark week with us but his orientation started this week. We didnt rub in how wonderful it was or anything like that LOL! Thanks to all our new OH friends for letting us ride with them on the way up. On the way home we went through NY City at rush hour, not really that bad. Unnerving was the Autobahn, Rt 15 through Conn. at 85 - 90 mph with no berms and lots of turns and heavy traffic. The speed limit was 55 but these guys were in NASCAR mode. Wow they were flying! If you didn't keep up you would surely get run over! More rough roads in Jersey, every bolt on the bike will have to be checked and something came loose in PA that makes my blinkers act wierd from time to time, or should I say bump to bump! Right now only the rt side is working.

We are safe and sound and had a great week! I wish every one else the same!!

Home! Started around 9:30am from the T&C and made it home to Radford, VA about 1:30am. It was a chilly ride. I wound up pulling on my rain gear about 8pm, to help retain heat. I enjoyed time with friends on the way up and at SWIV!!!

Aviaator and I left the T&C around 0600 and rode the Kank on our way out. Took a little longer route home to avoid NYC got home around 10:00 PM last night.

Thanks to all the organizers of SW it was a great time with awesome people and riding.

Me and Laxinharley made it home yesterday evening. We rode the Kanc on the way home. Unfortunately we weren't able to make it up earlier in the week but did meet some great people. The Town & Country was more than accommodating to our schedule. Thanks to everyone involved who took time out of there own I'm sure busy schedules the past year to arrange SW. Your efforts were successful. Thanks. I'm sure Laxinharley will chime in soon

Great time! We had leisurely 2 hour ride home. I passed another member headed home on Rte 93 heading south.
We're trying to figure out how we're going to manage 2 weeks off next year to get to TX.
Safe travels...

Oh yea the leathers will really help, that was some cold riding in the mountains at 0700 hours, and it never really warmed up, at least I didn't get into any rain.
