    Was there today and saw your bike, that thing looks like it has "experience"! Awesome.

    I wondered whose bike that was. Very nice example of a bike used as it's intended to be used.

    Had a great time, said hi to Ted and renewed membership with Muriel, but forgot the camera. Nate was great as usual!

    Well, the OP 's reference was about the MOA booth?

    What kind of meat did you have for dinner this year, Josh?

    Or did you just continue ???

    That bike was a hit! It got more attention from all kinds of riders, some who couldn't believe anyone would let their bike get that dirty, and most who thought it was awesome! Found out too late that N8 would have brought his carbon fiber RR. Now that would have been cool - bookends, a well-used GS and a race bike! Next year.

    Good to see everyone.

    What kind of meat DIDN'T I have?

    Lamb, several types of beef, chicken, pork, fish (sushi)... I think I covered all of the bases that night... followed by more:

    Hey! sorry to have missed you in passing through as well... That would have been really great to have Nate's bike there, also, I'd have been as giggly as a little girl

    I was really proud to have it there, and am really glad it worked out to MOA's satisfaction.

    I saw the bike, and stopped by the booth to say "Hello"... but you guys were busy handling members' issues, and I didn't wanna butt in to disturb you.
