Thanks everyone! I had a great time and met a bunch of new ADV Riders I had met in the past, and saw several old friends.

I had a great time helping as much as I could, and appreciate all the assists from other very knowledgable riders.

Particular thanks to NoVA Rider for his photos and his extra lift. Also to Tina, Umberto and Kelly for the cooking and shopping. Great burgers. Finally to my wife for her patience with all the work that went into the set-up for this.

Umberto cooking away!

I really look forward to number three!

He's known as the "Route 29 Batman." Apparently, he's driven cross-country raising money for children.

Next time...????

Jim,
You should be warned before the "next time"...

Someone mentioned they had a DR 650 in boxes just waiting for reassembly.

Now that would be a "tech" day.

Thanks again

JVB Wrenching Day 4/27/2013

What a great day we had! Thanks Jim, wife, and neighbors, for putting on the friendlist bike wrenching day I'd ever been to. You have been super good to the ADV guys, providing wisdom, tools, a place to work, a lift, and warm friendship. I almost forgot, free food too! And really, to top it off, we have a free online picture album to help us remember the fine time we had on April 27, 2013. Blessings and great rides to you all!

Thanks Jim

Awesome day, awesome group, wish I had work to be done on my bike ... looking forward to future events and riding opportunities with you guys. Life can be so hectic and impossible to bear some times ... getting on my bike and ridding into areas of back roads, mountain/country views, creeks and streams rejuvenates me ... just need to find ways to fit it into family obligations!

Thanks

I should of stayed longer, the traffic to Bobs BMW open hse was a disaster and wasn't worth the time or stop and go ride. Thx again.
I forgot to ask Jim if scheduling on the same day with Bob's event was intentional to avoid overcrowding

Nice meeting you Myron!

Gene, I pay little attention to the dealer events, especially Bob's!
