CCR Memories

I was cleaning up the files on my phone and ran across this document. Hard to believe it was 10 years ago. Jan and I have ridden a lot of miles since then but I have to say this was one of our most interesting adventures. 3 Cows and an LT.doc

Re: CCR Memories

Al,

I remember talking to you guys at the Holiday Inn on Sunday morning. I was confused at first as to why you wanted to trade boots with me.
I also remember that you guys stopped and stayed with us outside of Billings, MT when the rear shock on my LT broke, CCR15.
I do miss going to CCR and seeing all the great people.
Thanks for re-posting this story fun to remember these great times.

Re: CCR Memories

Will, I remember these times too. There were a lot of "CCR adventures". On one of our trips home we hit a coyote around 10 PM a few miles from Denver. I was going about 70 mph pulling the Unigo. I saw him in the headlights but didn't have time to swerve. The impact broke off one of my Motolights and it was hanging by its wires. I unplugged it and threw it in the unigo and we continued on our way.
