Great weekend. Thanks again, Ken for making it happen. We pulled in around 5pm. Roger, we pulled off for a gas stop and ended up just behind you.

Folkdancer48 and I returned home around 5 pm. We managed another ride on the BRP, from Cherokee to Asheville, along the way home.

Thanks to Ken, Craig, and Joel for another great event! Without you guys, these would not be possible.

Hope to see everyone in the Fall.

Another fantastic weekend of BMWST fellowship and riding orchestrated by Ken and Craig - thank you, thank you! clap

Back in DC last night at 6:30 PM after 5 days, and 1900+ miles of smiles! Mark (Marcopolo) and I rode home via Hot Springs and a few other nice 2 lane side excursions off the mostly I-81 ride home.

As most of you know, had intermittent brake problems (no rear brake) over the 5 days. Thank you to Terry for reading the codes and of course to Tom, Dave and Marty for their supervision of the process.

In at 3:45 Sunday. Great weather and a great weekend. Thanks for all your efforts Ken and TyTass. Nice location to hit all the good spots. I enjoyed meeting old and new friends.

I'd post pictures from our rides but Craig doesn't allow us to stop for pictures! dopeslap Nevertheless, great roads and good scenery and some good riding buddies. Looking forward to an even better FART.

Got back to Atlanta around 1 pm on Sunday after chasing Chris and Ken through some great roads. FYI Richard B Russell's backside has new skins! Check it out! Enjoyed riding with Randy S. and thanks for taking the lead coming back from lunch on Saturday. Thanks to Ken and Craig for organizing a great event!

Some observations: The fellow driving the Ferrari probably stayed at the Microtel because he read about their great breakfast on Yelp! Where those waffles from Belgium?

Riding home as a passenger was a bitch! Wait I think I have those 2 words backwards.


With that full length mirror in the room, I discovered with all my gear on and a large backpack I look just like a Ninja Turtle! But I do ride more aggressively.

Thanks for the hard work and focus of the organizers. It is always a pleasure..

Hats off to Ken and Craig for organizing this event. As several of you now know, this is the first of these that I have attended and I enjoyed myself immensely, so again a big thank you to Ken and Craig for doing this (and Joel too for the work on the sticker). I'd also be remiss if I didn't mention Bob (Endobobdds) who invited me to ride down with him from D.C. Once we were in Robbinsville, I spent three days following his licence plate as he showed me mile after mile of riding nirvana. The same was true on the ride back home on Sunday. Thanks, Bob.
