Excellent! Looks like she's in, too. She'll be on my strom and I'm riding my KLR. Looks like it's going to be beautiful, can't wait.

We can switch out the lead and sweepers, or sometimes we stretch things out to two groups, either way, I'll wait at the major turns to make sure we all make it.

Looking forward to the ride. Weather is shaping up nicely.

Sorry I missed you guys. Just was not in the cards for today. Got out for a little dirty blast and found some nice slippery stuff.

Had to start the year off right.........

Cheers Ken

Great ride

Had a great time. Thanks for getting us all out there. We need to get together more often. I'm sure there are some warmer holidays we can ride on.

Thanks for another fun New Years Day ride Ethan. Those were some roads I hadn't been on before around the Western side of The Swamp. We should call this the "Circle the Swamp" ride!

I noticed the pace was a bit quicker this year... It wouldn't have anything to do with our intrepid leader riding his new VStrom instead of the KLR, would it?



I was playing with a new GoPro (Thanks Santa!) and got a few shots on the fly, no video except some of my ride to the WaWa (oh boy!). The battery didn't last too long, an extra battery is on the list.









Non GoPro shots..

The gathering of the tribe.





At a mid-way break...





It's always great to start out the New Year with a ride with friends. Nice to meet some new folks, and some new roads.

Happy New Year! Stay Safe!
