    Have fun folks

    Funny feelings this morning...

    I knew a few months ago I would not be able to go to the rally and I was fine with the decision. I've taken on a part time gig with Yamaha and I'm working in Carlisle this week.

    I didn't think I'd miss what I call the "Quickening", the feeling I get as I ride to the rally and start to see more beemers.

    I didn't think I'd miss volunteering to help set something up. Last year I handled the dirty job of sanitation and I loved it. Or the excitement as thousands of people ride in to play with what we set up and all the little elements that make the MOA Rally so much fun for so many people.



    But I do.

    So for those that do get to attend I hope you have big fun. It's there all around you and there's more than enough to go around.

    Same here, Rob. Working and unable to attend. As it draws closer, the harder it gets to know I'm not going.

    Was so looking forward to another Iron Butt run up to the rally and meeting the IBA members again. Attending seminars and the closing ceremonies. Yes, I really like the closing ceremony. We had such a great time last year despite the heat.

    But most of all I'm going to miss seeing my friends Jerry Settle and his wife Charlotte and Thomas "Slider" and Beth "Slipper" Lee. You may remember that Jerry was a featured ambassador in an MOA issue some months ago. He's held religious services at the rallies for many years. If you stop by to visit them -- I'm sure they'll be meeting each morning --- please give them my kindest regards. Jerry gives a good teaching and Slider sings a good hymn. It's been the highlight of our rally week to attend Jerry and Slider's services.

    Wishing all of you a safe and fun rally week.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    I know that feeling Rob. I couldn't make it after making the last 3 in a row. When all the guys from the Gulf South Club in New Orleans started getting excited last week it started getting to me. Oh well next year sounds like a very nice location. Everyone enjoy and think of us that can't make it. Drink a beer in honer of us.

    I'm thinking or flogging the hack to Portland for Dillon's graduation and leaving it there until Chace, Alexis (neice and stunt daughter) and I fly out for the National. Granted somewhere in there we need to ship Chace's bike west.

    We're thinking we'd start the tour at the National and take two weeks to come east while showing Alexis America by sidecar.

    Yeah, I know two weeks isn't close to enough time to show a 9yr old America but hopefully it will be the first of many adventures.
