    OK, so I think these folks were having the time of their life. Lots of handshaking going around. Lots of "Hi, I'm....." happening, lots of laughing.

    Beer tent. Thursday night. Yeah, baby. Hanging with my peeps.

    So the storm comes in, but the band's still playing, the place is full, all beer must be destroyed is the marching order and everybody's ignoring the storm.

    Somewhere in here, somebody cares, but nobody I can see does.

    The band's playing blues, but nobody has them. It seems wierd.

    As a matter of fact, no.

    Though here at home, I have some Balvenie Doublewood that hedge36 gave me.

    Oh man.

    Ride report, oh yeah. This is The Veg. He's from Texas. He's a hoot. He rides an airhead that BMWGypsy used to own. He's taken it everywhere. It makes him and the bike happy.

    But he'd be happier if you said yes.

    There was a lot of this going on. I take your picture, you take my picture, we all see each other's perspective.

    Maybe I should do this on the media editor threads or something.

    Chacifer, standing there on the left, gave Rob a Hershey bar at the rally so we had to make him wear his helmet. We didn't, at least this time, have to put the harness on him and hook him up to the YB trailer.

    Good thing. It was wet and he gets cranky when he's wet.

    Chace thinks it's all funny. Well, little missy, it's all fun until someone looses an eye. You just go ahead and laugh. No dinner for you.

    Signed,

    Uncle Dave

    Despite what we'd heard about the food at the rally (I really expected to see a Deep Fried Lima Bean stand), we were able to convince Rabia that it was good enough to forgo her standard big bug with chili pepper mayo dressing.

    Sort of insect sushi. She usually like wasabi with her big bugs, but we couldn't find the sushi joint in Lima to get the stuff.

    Rob, as you may know, is going to ride the Iron Butt. He used the trip to Lima as a sort of shakedown run. He's pretty well good to go here, but you can't sit on the thing and get it to do a smoky burnout.

    Here, Chace helps hold it so Rob can get the tires warmed up. Yeah, baby. There's nothing finer than 49cc of runaway chain saw to hit me *right here*.

    Boooyeah! I think he's got all the GPS and lights and stuff installed on it now. He's just about ready. He's got a fuel cell coming that's gonna fit in the helmet stowage area under the seat and he's SET!

    OK, last one for tonight because I have to go to the airport to pick my favorite riding buddy up - Tina.

    Anyway, here's the thing about digital photography. You can take pictures of any old thing. If it doesn't turn out, who cares? That's what the delete thing is all about. So you can do stuff. Take a shot of some folks walking around in the dark and see what ya get.

    What we've got here is a wonderful smile. Wanna know why? Cuz she's doing almost the same stuff as that kid in the earlier picture is. Hanging around, shooting the breeze, out on a nice summer nigth with lots of bikes, lots of tents and lots of new friends to make and old ones to find.

    Don't know her name, don't know that I saw her again the whole rally.



    See you cats in the morrow. If you can identify folks in the pics, fill 'em in.
