Thanks for the compliment, Retro.

Great posts,  Josh.  Pretty cool about your dad being back in the saddle after 20 years.

Great photos. I wish I could have scheduled a meetup when PZ was in Maine...

He's headed back to that side of the country this weekend but I would guess your riding season in Maine is about done, like ours is in Idaho...

Yep. I'm in New Brunswick, Canada... the nice side of the border! I'll be done riding in about a month. No time to get around for meetups, unfortunately.

I hope this continues on in some form or another.
I'm sure it will, although it will have to change: the original format is obviously no longer working.
The trip to Barber is a good start (thanks Josh!), and Mooshie is already next in line. If anyone is interested in having a GZ make an appearance at an event or gathering, speak up.

The hand off to Prokop and crew went off without a hitch! Great but brief chat with Prokop and Spanner. Met a couple other gents but it was a blur. Great crew and look forward to seeing them again over the weekend. Someone took pics of the handoff and they will be posted I am sure

So, the strategy is to lie to people you are asking for help?

I think I'll be busy going for a ride.

Good luck!

Can I have a motorcycle when I get old enough?
If you take care of it.
What do you have to do?
Lot’s of things. You’ve been watching me.
Will you show me all of them?
Sure.
Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. It’s having the right attitudes that’s hard.

Hi, all.  I have been out of commision for this relay/rally  I was required to be at work much more than I was in the past due to retiring in July, then my Mom started chemo treatments again that takes up a lot of my time.  THEN on top of that at the first of Sept. I had an accident on my Aprillia Scarabeo scooter on the interstate.  I survived (as you can see) but had some brain injury and the road rash was unbelievable. I am still not healed up and my mom is still taking chemo.  I am glad to see that PZ or what ever this one is called is making its way across the country.  hopefully next year I will have more ability to get involved.  I really missed it this year.

Coke,
    Holy cow! Definitely a rough start to retirement. Hope you heal fast, sounds like you and Sam can compare scars.  :(

I know Spanner (forgot name), Prokop, and Bart (forgot handle)... if everyone sends me names/handles (and location in the picture), I'll re-post with everyone's handle's listed in the picture.

That's a GREAT group pic, Kickstart! ;D I can't remember when that many members were assembled in one place? BTW, Prokop, that is Vern, AKA Bluesboy, fifth from the left, and Spanner's name is Ray. I wouldn't have recognized the chef if you hadn't identified him, as I still carry an image of his scowling mug from his original avatar. ;) I see a lot of familiar faces, but can't put a name to them...
