Thought I would post a few remarks for those poor souls who couldn't make it.
Weather - VERY hot in the sun but not too bad in the shade. It feels like it's 20 degrees hotter in the sun. Severe weather moved in Thursday night with people at our hotel thinking it was a tornado and scrambling to put their expensive bikes as close to the building as possible.
The Crowd- Huge. As of 5:00 on Friday, Registration reported 7100 in attendence. Peole are scrambling for shade. MOA installed a misting station that is in high demand. The hotel parking lots are full of Beemers - the town is overrun with motorcycles.
Airforce Museum. Spend today (Friday) at the Airforce Museum and I'm really happy we were able to take this in. SPECTACULAR! WOW. You'll never see a nicer selection of rare and cool planes. This is a must see involving 3 large hangers (airconditioned!)
That's about it....if you are reading this from work or home we'll hoist one in your honor!
