Great Rally Again

THanks to all who showed up in XS1100, Kawi rockets, Yammie fjr, Honda VTX, Kawi Concours, HOnda Magna,,,etc,,,all share the connection with Xs1100 models and biking in general. A great bunch of guys, so for those of you who made it, you know the satisfaction,,,for those that didn't, you need to attend these rallies for a great time...also masterminded and led by the famous Bonz. Heck even El Toro made a guest appearance for the campground kids. We had a group from a lot of states, Colorado, Oklahoma, Missouri, California......Ride on,,,,,Mike and Roo from California

It looks like I will be leaving Colorado for Iowa if our house buying deal goes through. Move (and retirement) would be sometime after closing on September 30th. This would result in me going more east for rallies and such rather than west, but the future remains open. We are keeping our Colorado lot located in Park County and not far from Hwy 285 and Fairplay.
Jerry, We have attended many rallies and rides together. You are going to love retirement. I wish you well.

Once again sounds like a good time was had by all. I really must try harder next year to attend. Looks like loads of fun.
It is a long way from where I live so will take some organization on my part.
To Bonz and the attendees thanks for all the posts leading up to the rally and reports during and after.

Phil

Gallery ready

I have put together a gallery of my photos. Link is:

Durango-2019

You will note a link to a video clip (duration: 4:15) at the bottom of the page but I made the mistake of saving the file(s) in a high-resolution format and the buffering is terrible. Lots of starts and stops unless you have a VERY fast internet connection. I will have to re-save the files in a lower resolution so they will stream better. Give me a couple days to get that done.

(Files are saved in both .mp4 and .webm for browser compatibility.)

Link to my Galleries page is in my signature as well. f you use that link look for "Durango 2019" in the Motorcycle Rallies section.

Still have to get Georgia and Gunnison rallies done. I am way behind on some projects.

I re-saved the video in 720p, down from 1080p, and changed the compression from High to Medium. This resulted in lower file sizes and the video now plays with fewer stops to buffer. I don't use a special hosting site for videos; they are on my regular web page server and the download performance is a bit lacking. Hope you enjoy the gallery and video clip.

Hey Greg how did your trip North go? I would gather you are back in OK now?
