Not a bad Run for the Wing today little over 715 miles in about 19 Hours :blink: Not quite a IBA ride butt longest one on the new scoot so far :clapping:

got 3 BBQ joints in 2 states today rode around on some fun roads with good friends and tested out the capabilites of the Wing, or lack there of :lol:

After I got home I did have to take the FJR for a 5 mile burn to test the new PIAA's I instaled before I left, much better then the stock bulbs :)

Hopefully next year I can stay longer :yahoo:

Thanks to hitting the road as planned at 5 am, I was home in time to make breakfast for my family. It was a bit chilly this morning, with temps as low 39 degrees. The thick fog added to the fun as well.

Thanks to all for a great time. The rally rallie was the highlight for me.

Home safe. Nice to see some sunshine on the way. Kudos again to Rick, Marty, Dana and everyone else who had anything to do with pulling off another great CFO.

Thanks Rick and Marty and all the others that contributed to a great CFO. Keep it up!

Got home by 11:30am even after a rest stop break (too much coffee!) that broke me away from the group of Marty, Mark and Joe. Funny, no matter how fast I rode I didn't catch up to them...

Is next year here yet?

Was a great time! Sunday was actually a fantastic ride home up through Wisconsin to Prescott and then into the cities. Sunny the whole time. Sorry to those who had mishaps with their bikes, luckily it sounds like recoveries are in progress. That stuff happens.

Made it home safe and sound. My first rally and had a good time even though it was a little damp and cold. Next year I will try the rally rally, those guys looked like they had a pretty good time.
Thank you Rick and Marty for putting on a great event. :clapping:

Well, made it home to West palm a little before 10am (Eastern) The ride (1,718 miles) was made longer
because I wanted to scout out some roads for a two up trip in September with my wife. That turned out to
be a bad idea since the bridges were closed across the Missouri River due to flooding. So I went over 100
miles out of my way for nothing. There is something about riding 2 lane highways on Sunday morning/afternoon
that is really cool though. The ride ended up taking about 24 and 1/2 hours.
Just wanted to say "Thanks" to all who did the leg work to make this a wonderful event. The bad news for
you guys now is that I will probably make this an yearly event now. :yahoo: It was great meeting some great
riders, and wonderful people. Hope to see some of you in the Great Lakes area next month.
Take care, Tony
