Well I just left Peter at Perry's and Lorie's, and he couldn't be in better hands. His spirits are up and I'm sure he'll be good for the balance of the trip. Hoping to ride out and catch him on the return run.

Plenty of room and food Paul...Your more than welcome to stay...Kim would be mad if she found out your rode halfway and turned around...besides you'll be missing out on this...


Left 2 are lake trout...right 2 are salmon..some various homegrown peppers...also have 5lbs of burger,hotdogs,brats,and a ton of other snacks...My mom also stocked her pantry with kid snacks for the girls...

Dinner is at 6...Kims party at 7..

Looks like a great time Pete... Glad to see your feeling well enough to get purposely inverted...

Look forward to hearing from you and if Joe, Perry, Lorrie, and the girls are tagging along with you I hope I have the opportunity to meet everyone...

My Ol'lady and I stopped at the Motorcycles on Meridian early yesterday, 6:30pm, and it wasn't too bad getting around. Went back later @ about 9:00pm and it was wall to wall bikes. I sure wouldn't want to play a Pee Wee Herman at this event... Knock one bike over and it looked as though a thousand or two more would falllow...

Ride safe all, & Have a great day, Jeff...

Looks like you bounced back pretty well. What was worse - the morning after the accident or the morning after the party?

Ride on Pete! Have a blast and send pics!

nope Ira Needles and Erb in Waterloo

I knew I knew that intersection! Right around the corner from my wicked mother-in-law.

Looks like a cool party. Ride safe
