          She saw the orthopedist this morning, she has to stay off it for 4 to 6 weeks. She doesn't have to wear the brace around the house so it could have been worse.
          He drained A LOT of blood from her knee, that made it feel more comfortable. She's already bored.

        Thanks. Your sincerity is underwhelming. But I’ll tell MA. Hope your bride is doing ok!

          Bill...if she’s bored have her cut the grass. Your mower looks comfy!😉

            Its all about friendship, sharing and of course, fellowship.
            It was a fantastic turnout and a real show of force for Joe.
            Epic rides and tales happened, and as you know, if it happened in Happy Valley, it stays in Maggie Valley.
            Lets do it again next year.
            Mani, you are a class act! Thanks for the wonderful conversation and a great supper. Hopefully we will see you before next year.

I had to confess, and so I am BadBob by popular acclaim.

              Seriously, this is a great group of people. I appreciate the friendship extended by everyone I met. I enjoyed myself immensely and I am looking forward to the next gathering. I am even looking to add a k1300s to my stable at the recommendation of many. Hopefully, the brahma bull will not be too pissed.
              Bob, pleasure to have met and talked to you. Since you live close we should meet up at the Gap and get a ride in. The better riding season approaches.

                Well Joe, now we are in real trouble... 6 earthquakes on the Cherokee from Sept 7th to the 11th. Probably going to trace them back to the Non-Invitational DGR pillagers!

                Hurricanes and now earthquakes, what’s next in your plans?

                Thanks for your planning and hard work again this year.

                Guarding the back end, seems like I was always in the back... way in the back. BillGsa and EricM were riding really great on their GS Tankers.

                I do my best riding parked... thanks Jacque for the riding lesson.

                Joe's reflexes were a little too "Relaxed" he just missed grabbing the Saturday Dinner Check, so Mani stepped up... thanks again Aviator.

                The Shenandoah Valley from the BRP on the run home...

                The Mighty K ran flawlessly the entire trip. Jargon turned me on to a Riser Plate mod for the rear suspension... called Beech and I received the parts in just a few short days...

                I had the pleasure of riding with Jargon. He was having a hard time getting around, but as soon as he was onboard his GS, he cut a fine line through the Cherohola. Thanks, John.

                The most impressive riding moment was DYL-Jim blowing past us at Mach 1 on his Panigale! It sounded like a cruise missile loping along at 1200 RPM.

                It was really good to see an increasing turnout and who could have asked for better riding weather. Great planning Joe. Mf'er Ken it was super to see you and your H-D... sweet machine. Dale and Eddie, we will see you again next year.

                Talking with BadBob about a possible K1300S in his near future... well I guess he went online that night and liked what he saw price wise. I think he has made his mind up.

                Almost crashed on the way home at a BRP vista. Stopped to water down the bushes, took one step over the edge, it didn't look that steep. Frack me! Thought I was going to need to crawl all the way up from the Appomattox Court House. Definitely safer to ride than walk!

                Jargon and Jacque, take care.
                See you next year and thanks to all. Ride on!!

                  I think, I'll think about maybe making it, if you think it will happen.

                  It will happen, I’ve heard chatter

                Nothing solid, but if I was a gambling man I’d wager September 10 - 13. Just a hunch.
