Glad to see the event wasn't a complete failure. A new guy stepped up and made the trip and Mick held up his end as usual.

There's always next year......

Made it back home after doing the complete loop around Lake Erie. Kept the Lake Erie ride alive for another year. It was a solo ride on the US side, and then met IronMick in Fort Erie and the two of us rode through Ontario, spending Saturday night at Mick's house.

Thank you Mick for the escort through Ontario, the great BBQ, conversation, and putting me up for the night. It was a great ride with beautiful weather.

Neal

Hopefully I will be able to make it next year. I was just to busy this year. Congrats Neil on the loop.

Sounds like a successful ride couple of beautiful Sportsters parked in front of Mick's place again. Glad to hear you both made it home safe. With any luck more of us will be able to participate next year.

Yep glad it still went on. I will be there next year. Have the week off for vacation scheduled for next year. Then will be retiring in June so looks good every year after that.

Sorry to have missed the ride (again) this year. Memorial Day weekend - while clearly the best choice in terms of time off - just won't work for some of us with either family or other responsibilities...

Hoping to saddle up next May and coax others to re-join. Thanks to Mick for keeping the trip alive. Maybe we can figure out a way to avoid all the last minute bail-outs, myself included...

Best,

S.D.
