    I hate to point it out but.........

    As much as I WISH we were able to make this year's rally, and as much as we'd PLANNED to make it, the best laid plans....

    Given the weather this summer, I checked Weather.com for the extended forecast next week and...........

    Ummmm..........


    Well..........


    Please everyone be safe.

    have you ever seen a weather report from the great white north? at the mere hint of 75 degrees they're talking the correct SPF factor when you buy your sun screen.

    Understandable. Not everyone tolerates extreme heat as well as others, so it's a personal call on every MOA member's behalf.

    See you at a future rally!

    As a wise rider once told me " If one watches the Weather Channel, you'll never ride anywhere"
    He said that as I was pointing at the forecast to the north of MO we were headed to leaving the hotel...we were prepared and enjoyed the trip anyways.

    It's your call... don't mind the ribbin'

    Is this for real??? My Grandmother once said, "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen". I'm 65 and plan to get there, heat or not. I survived Bloomsburg, should be OK for this one. See you all there.LOL

    To paraphrase Noel Coward lyriÔÇô Mad dogs and Englishmen ride in the midday sun.

    Weather like this I ride in the morning
    and then again in the evening

    while midday I'm seeking the shade
    and a cooling lemonade

    I have to work while you are having rally fun
    Under the blazing July Missouri sun

    Remember, as you make your rally run
    Mad dogs and Englishmen ride in the midday sun


    Pass the mustard and UP THE REVOLUTION!

    No one can control the weaker and the weather cannot control me. With so much to offer in the way of fun, friendship and experience, I'm not going to miss it.

    106.5 degrees when we left the GWRRA Wing Ding at 7:30 PM in Fort Wayne, Ind. a week ago today. Everyone was looking forward to next years event in Greenville, SC.
