Default On The Road With Off Roadster John To...Rolling Thunder XXX!

I'll be heading out to meet some friends for our trip to Rolling Thunder in a few minutes.

I thought I would start a thread and post updates from time to time.

I'll post some pictures of other Sportsters I see. Maybe I'll find some other XLFers!

Stay dry...if you can! Sunday should be cloudy but not too wet.
Ride safe.

So, it's been over a week since Rolling Thunder. It's been on my to-do list to post pictures.

When I started the thread, I thought I would take and post pictures while I was at the rally. Then I got sidetracked with the rain and didn't take too many pictures. Here are a few I took.
