9 day trip for EOM this year. S76 and I rode to Shenandoah NP and the next day met up with RoadRunner, Zooom and HerFJR in WV. Rode fun roads to North Georgia and then S76 and I continued to the BRP for a couple of days, while the NY group went to EOM. Saturday S76 had a great ride with LuvToRide, Scoops and another Jim (I don't know his forum handle).

The gps gave no clue it was about to going to die soon until day one of this adventure. I'll update the software and maps with a new battery installed. I did have music, basemap, and weather radar.

S76 and I slipped out at 4am Sunday and rode between rain clouds all day. I heard someone ride out a few minutes before us. What kind of crazy person rides out before 4?

I rode with your bike at the first EOM and had a blast riding with you Saturday!

Maybe I should wash the FJR before fixing the gps:

Really??? I rode with you @ the first EOM? Wow, I don't remember!!! Are you sure? I think that you rode with my bike! That was proven by pictures. Anyhoooo! The ride on Saturday was STUPENDOUS! That was by far the best ride that I've had in years. What fun! Glad to hear that you & Bob made it north alright.
Shut up and Ride!!!

Godspeed TWN. We miss you.

It was fantastic riding With you, Bob, and of course L.T.R and Scoops.

Ahhh that explains everything. An old Navy guy like you would leave before 4! S76 wanted to leave earlier, but I told him this old Army guy needs his sleep. :lol:

Saturday was great riding with you all!

another old sailor left around 0400 with mvette and old Marine burnspot (heading his own way.
I had 700mi and find night riding on the slab has many positive aspects.

Had a great time at EOM.

987 miles of boring slab for me. I love riding early Sunday morning, just not too early that the drunks are still out. Night riding is fun for me too. I aim one of the hid's to light up the tree tops so when I lean into a curve it lights the road up ahead.

I had planned two days of back roads home, but my wife said she would make me an apple pie if I got home a day early. She lied to me, she said after ten days away my dogs forgot who I was. Not true! Pie was worth the quick ride though.

So six old people left EOM Sunday three and a half hours before dawn!
