    I surely had a good time and made some new friends! There were people camped near me who were terribly friendly and good people, there was the guy who lives 50 miles South who happens to wear the same Olympia jacket as me (another person to ride with!) there were the forum folks I met, the people I went to Cubanitas with for dinner, the Irish rider who is on his way to Argentina... the list goes on!

    AFTER the rally I met some people BMW people in the most unlikely place who were great as well, but I'll save that for my ride report. (yeah, I've been busy)...

    Now as others have said; I hope they all feel the same way!

    Thumbs up Yes!

    Walt and Linyl (sp?) from Monroe Michigan who rode in on their his and hers 1995 R100RTClassics. Nice neighbors! Also met a cool young man who drives a City bus in Urbana IL. He parked and camped by me because he also has a retired police bike like mine. We compared lots of notes.

    Oh, and a few others at the rally and then there were all those wild people at the ferry...

    Hmm it seemed to dispense a great deal of liquid medication, purely medicinal mind you but in large quantities but yet very few asprins.

    maybe you should have said "aspirin" instead of pure mumbling something

    I fear mumbling was the extent of my powers of speech at the time.
