Just rolled in at 11:00. A lot of construction slow downs & a sore butt but that's ok. Great time, thanks again. thumbsup

Home safely

First Un, everyone made me feel welcome.

BIG thanks to Christopher for inviting me to room with him, could not ask for a better roomie.

Matt, Shawn, Craig and all those involved deserve my appreciation.

Great routes by Ken and what a wonderful guy, met him the Friday before the rally at the dealer and was so enthusiastic.

Met Shannon and Foot at Pisgah, they were nice enough to chat a few minutes, enjoyed that.

LesterV and his wonderful wife.

Leaving out a lot of people so thanks to all.

A bit late in reporting in but Quinn and I were home by about noon yesterday. Managed to avoid the worst heat - it was only 92 when I arrived. Had a great time - saw many old friends and made some new ones.

Want to add my thanks to Matt and Shawn and all their helpers for putting on a really great time. Hope to see everyone again sometime soon. smile

Home at 11:30pm last night. Lost about 3hrs in Roanoke looking for a replacement rear tire. The Road Attack went from having plenty of tread left to being completely bald at the center in 250 miles . No way it was going to last another 600 miles. Found the only tire in the right size at a small independent shop. I took it off and they mounted a new Shinko Raven. Never heard of the brand but beggars can't be choosers.

Matt and Shawn - Great Un - Gracias!

That's what happened to me on the way down Sunday morning. No way to really tell when the Road Attacks are going to give up the ghost.

Glad you traveled together. Good to know it got fixed. thumbsup

Here's the photo taken of E.B. at the shop.

A little late, as usual, but made it home safe and sound in time for dinner, around 7. Terry and I hit the Pisgah Inn for breakfast, then I split off for 450 miles of curves through NC, SC, GA and back home, with only the last 40 miles on the slab.

Big thanks to Shawn, Matt, and all their minions...especially all their minions! It was a great event, and great to see everyone! Cheers!
