    Voni: Thanks for sharing your "view". While I can't attend this year it's great to see the action!

    My pleasure!

    Here's more from Friday morning, starting with Coffee and Bananas with David Hough and Fred Rau, vintage bikes, (even a video), shopping, and lots of seminars. And David Swisher, our 1.65 Million Mile guy.

    Off to hear Benka Pulko next, and Holly Berkley. Then the Iron Butt Pizza Dinner to celebrate the new Saddle Sore completers. AND music!

    The Iron Butt Pizza Dinner where we welcomed riders who had done Saddle Sores and more on their way to Salem, Oregon.

    Lord Kneeebone presided over all!

    Thanks Voni! I particularly enjoyed seeing some familiar MOA faces, like Cwi and Parkhouse.

    That new camera (a Lumix IIRC), and the operator, are taking some great pictures.

    Excellent! Sad that we could not make it but pleased to be able to view your many shots. Couldn't see any Salty Fog Riders t-shirts ..... and I know that they're there..... and they're usually not a shy bunch! Again, great pictures and thank you for doing such a fine job for us left behind. - Bob
