Smile Jenna is here!

Apologies to all, communications are a bit patchy down here until we organise a broadband connection.
Suffice to say we are now rolling after our 3 1/2 years of planning and it was worth every minute. She handles like a dream ( 020's ) and we are both loving it all. Will try to stay in touch better, looking forward to CCR '06. Cheers Rena & Hilton.

Woohoo!

About time. I still remember meeting you for the first time and all the questions you had.

Glad to see it happen.

Hey, hey Hilton - congrats on finally getting settled over the last few years. You guyz have really earned the very best of everythang and I know the entire family here is proud for ya. Be great to see you both at CCR '06 - like it wuz at CCR '04.

BTW - for some reason, I don't remember that underbrush you're sportin' now; although it does look good on ya, even with the helmet on!! Which reminds me - you bringin' helmets and riding gear with ya this time? Ole Toad would be proud to sport ya around for a day or two while you're here (unless you've made other arrangements for a ride). Just count on it if needed.

Cy'all at the Chateau!

Glad to see all your waiting has finally paid off! Took a long time, but you certainly did your homework first. There were likely to be no surprises, other than good ones.

Don't know if I will be at CCR '06 or not. If I get my home sold here in CA and move to the TN/NC area as hoped I may drop in even if I do not have a bike. Would love to meet old friends again, and make a few new ones.

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

Hey David, if I can make it from Finland you should make it from whereever in the US...

Very much looking forward to meeting both you and Hilton (among hundreds of others) at CCR.

Excellent news, Hilton. How long will it take you to put on the 1,374 farkles that you've already collected?

I'm sure you and Rena will enjoy every kilometer.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

I made every CCR when I had a bike, except the first one in Broken Bow, but without one, it is less enticing to go.

But I will say that I enjoyed the Gatlinburg CCR as much as any, and my bike was in Nashville waiting on a new final drive unit from Germany. That was frustrating, but the comraderie and the venue were first rate! All the CCRs I attended were great, but maybe because of the time I had to just meet and talk to people in Gatlinburg that one is probably the most memorable, also, that was the only one my wife attended.

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

David, I got a 1200 GoldWing available for you to borrow for CCR. It will be in TN by that time.

Wonderful news Hilton! We don't have to tell you to enjoy her. We all know you will!

Blessings!
