WOW what a beautiful weekend in Vermont. The weather was perfect for riding and camping.

Here are some photos and videos.







A little fog in the morning.

Nicely captured! It was good to meet you there too! Be sure to show us those LED lights in the GS forum..

Surely you have more pics of the museum bikes... we'd love to see them here

Hey GB nice meeting you too.

Holy Crap those lights are bright. I rode home Saturday night and on high the lights lit up both side of route 91 !!!

I am also happy with the voltage draw. The volt meter doesn't even change when the lights are on the medium setting, and that's with the bike sitting still idling at like 1200 rpms. On full blast, high beam the volts drop to 12.2 at idle.

I'll post pictures soon.

Here are some videos. Click on the link to see the video. I can't figure out how to have a thumbnail.

This little dood was showing everybody how to ride.

Looks like a beautiful weekend. Glad to see they've figured out a use for the old race track - that's been sitting there vacant for as long as I can remember.

Great pics. Thanks for sharing.

I was on my way to Memphis that Thursday and went through there. Lot's of nice bikes all over the place. Despite the road construction around the town, it seemed like a great place for a rallye.

Mike -- It was great meeting you. Bummer that you had to park all of Saturday, but it's good to hear that the wait for the lights was worth it!

Great shots, especially the two of Barley. Thanks for sharing!
