Had a great time at the Christmas party tonight. Thanks again Joel for doing everything you do to keep this core group together. Thanks Tony for dragging 2 big cases of equipment down to make sure we had what we needed for two separate AV shows. Thanks also for getting those videos together, very cool. And thanks Fudge for dealing with all of the photos, you must have had to make many trips back and forth to Starbucks on the GS to finish that.

What a great group of guys. I've known a couple of you for 30 years, a bunch of you for 2-4 years, and a few of you I've only met once or twice. When we get together for these things, it always feels like I'm in a room full of old friends. It's a great feeling and I would be happy to ride with any one of you, any time. Thanks everyone for helping to make this part of my life more meaningful.

Also, thanks to whoever brought the Gerber Mulit-Tool that I got. It's very cool. And thanks Joel for the sweet 606.

Merry Christmas everyone.

Ditto those comments. Thanks Joel and everyone else who helped put this together. My first ADV dinner was a great time. Malbec turned out to be a great little place. Great food and service.



I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis



this guy's clearly out of his league



as is this guy



and especially this guy



Toast is actually the best videographer I've seen in this community so far (when he actually chooses to do some editing)



Happy anniversary!



What a great family, huh? Need some work done on your bike like I do? Give this man a call at 951-415-5668.



Our MC, H8Chains himself

that little restaurant really delivered. great food, wine and service.

i had a great time, and think everyone did too.

after the exchange, we had the appreciation award.

jon for being the most supportive got the tackle and block



eric for his entertainment factor and generous pics he posted here got a 606 front



sito for fixing flats for others



let's get on with the raffle

goggles for jim




mini tool set for paul bunyon



damnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.....dannyG won the major prize again....

a $300 gift certificate from liorsmotoride......



another winner was lara and about to pick her prize







dave got this bag donated by dunerat



ami was very happy with the double take mirror



the last prize was a 606 and went to cathy; thanks cat for helping in the reception and raffle



everything went great and another memorable event.

readers are wondering where did i get the money to buy all this gifts.....they were all from the generous donations from good people who hang out on this thread. the hard truth, without the funding, it won't be as much fun. thanks guys and you know who you are. really appreciate your support without question or asking for an itemized financial report.

with all the bull shit and trash talking on this website, i am thankful to see more people with positive attitude and values, people who believe in the true objective of the adventure rider thread, people helping others, including travelers who ride through our part of the world.

we need more people to step up and with a purpose.

i sincerely thank you all for your contribution.

merry christmas!
