Sally and I made it home after enjoying mastan's company for part of the trip home. No rain, no pain, we're OK in Kane!

Glad everyone had a safe fun rally, thanks all for coming. It IS all about you guys and 'guyettes' coming that makes it fun. Glad to see you all and come back again next year!

Anyone who asked me for maps or other stuff please email or PM me with the request again.

Home at 6:30, no rain and no traffic to speak of except at the Holland Tunnel. Another great time, thanks Ralph!!

So, where are we going next year? I remember two suggestions:
The Outer Banks and Connecticut.

Hi Ralph!

I got home by 7:30 this evening. Got wet on the PA turnpike so sat on the side of the road for awhile until the storm passed.

Wow, that was a great ride today! Never knew that Rt 30 was so scenic out there in western PA!

Really had a great weekend seeing everyone again and going on the rides!

You did a fantastic job organizing the rally! Thank you very much!

Be well and keep the shiny side up!

Right then try again. having written a long post my computer decided to crash.
Gary Conboy and I were last to leave at 9:00am Took the Turnpike and I79 to I90 Buffalo QEW home. It was sunny and HOT all the way. Addie had a few hissie fits along the way but apart from the poping and banging made it home. Definitely not right. Home by 5:30pm in time for a beer on the patio.
Thanks Ralph and Marty for another good event. Specil meention to Randy for the Arrogant Bastard and we missed you Dean oh and Mitch though drank the Alpine

Made it home at 8PM 5/31/10 after losing the alternator just outside of Scranton. Made it within 15 miles of home before the battery died. Had to wait 2.5 hrs for a tow. I guess the MC Gods are paying me back for trucking to the Rally.

The rally was great Ralph. It was a pleasure to see all the old friends and to meet so many new folks.

Dang Brent for someone who doesnt want to ride after dark you pretty much booked it. I'm glad you made it back safely.

Ivan and I made it home just fine Monday. Knocked out about 800 miles on Sunday, and the other 400 Monday. Total for the week was just under 4k miles.

Had a great time putting some faces to the names, and an even greater time giving one particular guy some crap.. something about 2-stroke oil? International relations at it's finest. Randy, it was a particular honor to finally meet you. Thank you for my first and last Arrogant Bastard... even though DuWayne had to steal it for me. By the time I got that thing choked down, I think I had to chew the last couple drinks..

I got lots of pics, but nothing any better than what you guys already have really. It's always a pleasure to see my good buddy Brent again. DPotter.. thank you for the week of company across the many states and the hospitality in your home you showed us.

Thanks everyone..

Tod
