I would so love to see yoose guys on bikes again! Best of luck in your search. Even though it's been 10 yrs since I bought the FJR (10 yrs! Can you believe it!?!) I still remember what a giant PITA it was finding what I thought was the bike for me. That part I hate for ya's but when it finally happens and the wind is blowing through your hair and helmet tail I know you'll be in nirvana again.
The get-togethers finally petered out after the Bowling Green, KY trip a few yrs back. It was good while it lasted but I think as always all good things come to an end. Some good (for me!) came of them: Ken the HD Guy who first joined us in Wellsboro still rides and we still go and go. We were coworkers at the time and had just started experimenting with long(er) distance riding. After that the trips became more and more natural. This yr already we had a long weekend in Charleston, SC/Savannah. If you get your bikes and want a shakedown cruise we'll be in WV in August for a couple days (reservations already made) and maybe NC Outer Banks in October. Last yr we rode Hwy 9 from the mtns of NC all the way to Myrtle Beach. The yr before that we rode to and toured Mobile, AL for a few days. Rob K., a holdover from the BTK EAST rides, still rides with us sometimes. He did Hwy 9 and this yr will be in WV too! We'd love to have yoose along with us!
I still go and look at the pics I've taken over the yrs and wonder how everyone is doing. Remember these?
Marlinton, my first BTK. Arrived solo on that one
Wellsboro, Ken the HD Guy's first. He had never been that far north and really loved it there.
And Lake George. This is one of my favorite pics
So get them bikes! We need to ride!!
