Thanks everyone, the Mrs and I had a great time!

No choice but to ride home slow and safe for us, we hopped on I-95 in Providence right behind a conga line of salt trucks and followed them at 25 mph all the way down until they finally got off at exit 6A in West Greenwich.

EDIT:

Yep, 2-up, side-by-side with the wife - in a Ford Explorer SUV. There was enough concern about icy streets that even lilolita arrived on four wheels! Not that I need to tell you about the slick roads.

not at all.. I'm searching ebay right now for a replacement driver side mirror since a large portion of my original mirror is somewhere between exit 5 and exit 6..

Glad you all got together. The wx wasn't so bad, I was just too tired and fell asleep.

Hope Lolita schedules another one soon!

Sorry we missed out. Rob was in St. Maarten and I was on the couch lamenting the removal of my wisdom teeth.

Sadly, I know all too well your circumstances. I cannot believe that bahstahd went to St Maarten and all you got was some Vicodin.

If I'm working in RI that day I'm in. If I'm not working in RI I'm a potential "maybe"..

If I get new rear wheel bearings delivered today and if I have time to install them tonight and if the installation doesn't go wrong I'll probably be there tomorrow.

That sounds like a no Al. A lotta ifs there. Hope you can make it. I sent a message to CBejbl, hopefully he can make it. Do we need to pack some heat and body armour heading into Providence?
