    Thanks for fixing the Garmin file to eliminate the Great Barrington issue.

    Although I often stop at the "Bean", for this ride I am meeting some OSBMWR folks in Warwick, leaving at 7:45AM.

    See you at the CB in Windsor Locks.

    The RT is prepped and ready to go, routes will be loaded into the Garmin after supper. I'll be rolling out of the garage around 7:30 AM tomorrow for the meet up at the Westborough service plaza, see you all tomorrow!

    P.S. Luis, I got voice dial working over my bluetooth setup again and your cell number is still in my contacts, I'll call you if I get delayed in the morning.

    Thanks to all who rode. It was nice to meet some new people. Sorry about the routing mix-up on the way home... I was baked by that heat!

    No issues on the separation.

    Annemarie , Joe and I met up with Phil at the Charlston rest stop and continued on home.

    Great time - post some pictures if you have them

    Nice to meet all. Glad the ride went well. The Air Museum is well worth the trip. We spent a good 3 hours there and I could of stayed longer, but majority rules. Went to the bean today on a ride with the RI club that I did not think I would be able to attend. Seemed even hotter than yesterday. Still better than cold. Later.
    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.
    I answer to Roy, Chief, or Sarg.

    Yup, great day for a ride, and yeah, the heat was a bit much for this early in the season.

    I had to bail as we were getting into Springfield, too much heat and too little water, I was developing a nasty headache. Still took me a good 1 1/2 hours plus to get back home on the slab from where I broke off, just couldn't take any more of the traffic light stop and go in the heat and full riding gear, next time I'll wear the mesh jacket with removable liner to avoid meltdown.

    I'd still like to do the other half of the route back to Cracker Barrel from the lunch stop, it's still in my GPS and might be a good one for the fall!
