CNIDog, Glad you and the boys were there and made it home safe and sound. Lisa and I pulled up to the house this afternoon after riding all day without tunes. HK crapped out right out of Amarillo, guess I get to start shopping for another head unit.

Was great seeing everyone again! Be safe out there

Killed a few west texas bugs along the way



2750 miles round trip, way shorter than last year.

Rolled in safe and sound here at 6PM after separating from my very good friends Troy, Jack and Chuck this morning in Roswell, NM.

What a great week. I'm hoisting a Shiner right now in salute to the Texas crew. Well done, boys. Prosit!

I got home this afternoon. Only 15 minutes of light rain as we left Kerrville. The skies parted for us all the way home. We followed the old El Camino Real to Natchez, great ride but dang the last 3 hours through Mississippi and Lower Alabama were damn hot.

Made home yesterday as well. Like Gary R said the last days ride was hot as hell. Sat down last night to look at pictures and woke up this morning in my chair. Wore out for sure. I would do it all again today if I could.

I intended to be home last night, but mother nature had different plans for me. After 825 miles down on Friday I only managed 575 on Saturday. The rain on route 81 in southern, VA was relentless and I soon realized the safest thing to do was give up for the night. I was wet, cold, and the rain was dropping so fast I could hardly see.

Made it home at noon today after 4254 glorious rain soaked miles. Had a great time. Thanks to the Texas crew for putting on a great event.

Rolled in at 1pm today. Running the slab is no fun but it sure clicks off the miles in a hurry. Was reminded of Joel's toll booth story this morning after I rolled into the wrong lane at 5am and didn't get a ticket to start our trip on the Kansas turnpike. 110m later I rolled up to the booth and said "Uh?? I didn't get a ticket??" "Yep, happens all the time, $5 please........." :)

Safe

After 6800km we (Cyclops) rolled in at 7pm tonight. Dodged the rain almost completely. Safe and sound. Hot shower and bed. What a ride!

I rolled in about 8 last night, a mere 2719 miles....the last 110 miles the easiest as a replay of Saturday nights James Taylor concert live at the Apollo came on and made the drive seem like 15 minutes.

Due to health issues I debated even going to this years SW, I couldn't ride or even drink :eek: but as anyone thats been to one knows after attending one, SW becomes as much like a family reunion as a bike rally, so I went wanting the chance to catch up with old friends. I had a great time and I can't tell you how good it felt catching up with old friends and meeting new ones after being cooped up the last 4 months. I've rode the Hill Country the last couple years and loved it. On a bike it's hard to wipe the smile off your face as you ride the sisters, rt. 16 and on and on but in a car, albeit a BUICK, I found out quickly it's no place for a car so I stayed out of the way and let the riders do their do. Tropical storm Bill didn't bother SW much, despite most people getting wet in varying degree's Tuesday the rest of the week was mostly sunny and pretty dry.

Thanks to the Texas crew for putting on a great event in every aspect and leaving no stone unturned. It seems the bar for hosting Shark Week gets set higher and higher every year!

I just rolled in this evening. Spent a extra day in San Antonio.
Just shy of 6000 on this trip! Worst part is the last 125 miles of traffic ( and losing yet another horn!!)

A great time, met more great people!

Cant wait for next year. Maybe my horn will stay on this time ?
