Glad to hear you made it home with nothing worse than soggy gear!

We made it home about 90 minutes ago. It was clear until I-44 and it only rained for about a mile. Overcast skies. Plenty of opportunities to get performance awards, but thankfully the presenters were already busy handing them out to others.

A wonderful, relaxing long weekend with like-minded people in a twisty town like no other. Truly a gift. Thank you everyone.

I made it fine, got rained on while I was on a twisty detour for a bit. I did fully test the fuel reserve in eastern Kansas though, I can vouch for at least 44.7 miles after the flashing starts.

Got home about 6pm tonight - no performance awards to stack into the house-of-cards that is my 101-deferred-adjudications.
It was sunny and 82 in Ft Smith so I took off the raingear.... only to experience 66 degree torential once in Oklahoma, not 30 minutes later. Flora, fauna & fungi! Woohoo!

I've paid some severe penalties along the way, but the rewards have been so much greater; even if for just have participating in the game of life with utmost abandon. It's not who rides the furthest in a day, but rather in a lifetime. CBA member #1, IBA #31845 and very proud of both.

dcarver, well don't have much of a story.....didn't get a lot of riding in during SFO, in case you didn't hear....IT RAINED A LOT... but then again I do spend a good amount of time/miles in the "Natural State" thru out the year LOL.
On my way home I did have a run in with Fayettville's, AR finest, that accused me of not coming to complete stop...he only gave me a warning...sigh
Make sure you attend SFO next year...surely, it CAN'T rain at SFO three years in the row... blink.gif

Ran into constant Rain 20 miles before Lebanon, MO till Kirksville, MO. The increased traffic on the 4 lanes didn't help much but I managed to make it home safe. I pulled in around 8:45PM last night.

That's not what it will look like but you can always switch later. There's no point in keeping the copy at the bottom of the logo since it's unreadable. I have several versions of the logo to choose from, but I'm thinking it will look similar to the name tags.

Bambi and I arrived home about 3;30 PM, safe but STILL WET. We did a detour with GPRider to route 123 yesterday, it cleared up for the run and was brilliant!!! Thanks Russ! Poured on us thru the forest and into Hot Springs, finally cleared up into Texarkana. At least we remembered a couple of bottles of wine after last years adventure.

Clear today until we cut across Sam Houston forest, then we almost found another tornado. Drenched until Conroe, clear the last 5 miles! Oh well.....

Looking forward to next year, had a great time despite the rain!!!!

I didn't think the copy at the bottom was any more unreadable than the 08 or 09 sig logo....
