I have to say this has been the best year of my life. I went to 10 bmw rally, every other weekend I was gone. Ya the weather was not that great,lot of rain at the start. First event was the swap meet by rockford IL. Turned 35 there and my buddy had a small cake for me and a lot of beer also. Shinefest rally in KY was a great time.( Great rally). June went to road american to help and watch my friend race, airhead tech day at Al Sloan house- always a fun day and great food. July was the national-letf the house tuesday night at 7pm and arrived wed morning at 6 not bad for 650miles and stopping to take a nap. The national was hot weather but I had a great time, seeing all my friends and making new friends. Aug- had a airhead tech day at the house-had just a great day, went to the buckeye rally- the only rally me and dad road together to this year. Hope next year we ride together more. Sept- dells rally- what a awesome site, took the girlfriend there for her first rally(hope she don't think all rally have a hotel next door with a starbucks). Mine rally in Darlington- with my 7year old son, his first rally and not the last. Went to the Hoosier beemer rally on my 61 r69s what a bike, did o most a 1000 miles that weekend on the old bike, what a great time. Oct- the falling leaf rally-what perfect weather and roads, had a tone of laugh there. This year has been so great to me. I never put so mean miles on the bikes tell this year,so far 14,000. A lot of roads,tires,gas and every mile was worth every penny. To all of my friends and all the new friends ,thanks for a year I will always remember.
