Thanks to everyone! I didn't even get close to meeting everyone, unfortunately. My shyness takes over in large groups...

Just awesome....it had to be for 'Carminator' to join us ..........our dozen bike line-up meet outside of Richmond...

Upon arrival the funeral home lot was fillin' up....

Obligatory food porn...

The locals had a bit of a shock when we took over the joint

Carmen somehow has the ability to arrive at home with even numbers on the odo
....that's one spotless Ninja for being 11 years old


Great to meet a bunch of new folks and catching up with the regulars, thanks to bwalsh & BBQ Exchange for a great time.

See Ya'll at the next one...

Great place, even though the girl at the register thought that me and Lance(AdvPilot) were a couple.

2nd what XDragRacer said. Thanks again for getting us all together Bob.

Thanks Bob for getting this together! I also enjoyed meeting lots of you and putting faces to the names, been lurking for three years it was finaly time to show up. I hope to be able to come to more of the "festivities" in the future.

If that was your transalp in the parking lot, I was sure coveting it. . ..

That bike looked pristine.

Wanted to send a big thank you out to the organizers of the RTE.
Mrs BeeMaa and I had a great time.

Another gravel road found by mistake (but a good one) on the way home.

Had a great time meeting everybody and next time we will try to take more pics at the actual destination.
Cheers.

Thanks! I bought the bike to do a little gravel and maybe some two track but it's just too nice to mess up. So it's street only, it's a great fun bike.
