Have a good trip, Kevin. It seems like Sarah gets as much time off for riding as you.

Very touching Kevin. Too many first responders leave us too soon. Always the best, brightest, bravest.
RIP MAFFS 7.

MAFFS stands for Modular Airborne Fire Fighting System (IIRC or something very similar)

It's what the Air National Guard is able to fit to a number of their C-130s so they can lend a hand when all other resources are being utilized.

Last summer on July 1st 2012 MAFFS 7 crashed in the Black Hills of South Dakota killing 4 of the crew, including my friend Robbie Cannon who was the Flight Engineer and a Sr. Msgt.

Although I had never met Pilot Joe McCormick I would soon realize that he was married to the daughter of an old friend.




I'll be meeting Happy Riding in Custer, SD on Monday evening and accompanying her to deliver donations for the maint. of the memorial that were collected at BYOB, that will be done on Tue.


I don't remember ever seeing Robbie without a smile.




I'm going to post a stalker link but will try and be a good guest and not pinpoint anybody's home.....will just click the OK message out on the edge of the greater metro area(s).

p.s. that won't show anything until I get on the road Saturday....

The route should look something like this http://goo.gl/maps/BS2Od

Thanks Jack.

Here's a photo album I found from the National Guard of the dedication earlier this month, many of them were able to walk to the crash site itself and there's pics of that too.

This pic is of Robbie's Dad touching his Son's pic on the memorial.

I had just taken off a tire that still had some life in it so I could start the long trip with fresh rubber so I volunteered to ride my old tire up to him Sunday morning. I was planning to do a daytrip anyway as a final shakedown run before changing the oil.
Not many pics as my rain dodging luck ran out....also forgot to document the actual tire change. Oh well, here's the aftermath...
Wheedle getting geared up for the ride back down to Georgia.



Our Stroms getting a free rinse.



I've ridden on worse.


Thanks again Kevin, I owe ya. Yeah, I've ridden on worse also... but not the 250 miles home. I must have really enjoyed the last 1200 miles of that tire.

Yep...she got here first, 7 stickers already marked the entrance to the memorial when I arrived. Today I tag along as she delivers donations and looks for the people responsible for making it happen, then it's on to tourist duties...Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Needles Hwy, Iron Mtn etc...
