I had a great time as usual! Even Rachael the excellent hostess we had, got a quick ride around the block on the Ducati! No wheelies though.

Great to see old friends, meet new ones and put new faces to their user names.

We'll do it again soon!

A big public "thanks again" for putting it together, and for straightening the weather out for us.

By the way- today was supposed to be our waitress's day off, but when she heard bwalsh's group was coming back she asked to come in and take care of us. Says a lot about Bob, and maybe us too I guess

Had a great time catching up with folks.
Put 200+ on the rig today and man it was good to get out and do it.
I need to figure out how to post pics from Picasa, took some good ones.
I'm a computer idiot.

Until then,
Cheers.

Thanks for the kind words but it's the entire group that deserves the credit.

Late to the party...
Open the file you want, click on the picture you want, when it opens in another screen right click and "copy image location".
Come over here and click this icon and paste the URL into the box. If you did it right it should look like this...


I call this one "The hand off"...

Nice hand off you have there.
Still having trouble, I think because I have a Mac and lack the ability to "right click".
Still trying.
Thanks for the advice.

Cheers.
