    Karol's probably gonna hate this picture, but I think it's a pretty good representation of the permanent smile she's always got going.

    Good to see ya there, Ms. Patzer.

    Anyway, that's all I've really got for photos.

    I guess I wanted to point out here that motorcycles are vehicles. They're just stupid machines. But they have an ability to transport us to places we didn't know about, both physical and social.

    Through motorcycling, I've met my best friends in the whole world. I've been to places I only dreamed about when I was 10 years old. I know that no matter where I travel, I'm never alone, as long as there's a motorcycle person nearby. So, while it's easy to get hung up in the politics and the hardwear and the sheer amount of stuff that happens at a rally, the ultimate purpose, when you've peeled all the trappings away, is that it gives us an opportunity to gather as many of our motorcycle buds together as we possibly can and spend some time with them.

    So, while we strap on our helmets and are alone with our thoughts as we ride down the road, it gives us a chance to reflect on our lives, our friends and our family and realize how rich we really all are.

    Motorcycling, this thing we do alone together, has made us all wealthy. Enjoy your riches, folks, and we'll see you in VT.

    . No kidding the Rokon guy had a big black mark on his leg after he tried to get in front of the thing and it started crawling up his leg.

    I forgot to say thanks for the fun pics. It was better than being there since I didn't have to sweat.

    Any time, mang.

    We've had a bunch of folks put their pictures up, but some kind of narrative for them would be more fun.

    nice work, Dave

    I sure wish I could have been there. So I have to settle for seeing it through everyone else's posts. Thanks.

    Thanks, Rich.

    I try to take pictures of people and things that mean something to me, since I've always felt that photographs are like little memory triggers.

    We'll be looking for you in VT, man. The riding there is pretty fine and Cuban cigars aren't too far away.
    not that I would advocate bringing blockaded tobacco products across the border or anything.

    these guys didn't care. We've got beer. We've got motorcycle buds to talk to.

    Heck yeah.

    What weather?

    That's actually me on the left talking to Gene Merritt aka 'merrittgene'. (We Iowa guys are real creative with screen names.) But Joecubana did have a Hawaiian shirt on too as I recall.

    We Iowa guys laugh at little thunderstorms. If the farmhouse ain't spinnin' and an old crone on a bicycle ain't flyin' by the window, it's just a breeze.

    OK, so Joe's the guy with the camera, here?
