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...

Reporting in from STC!!

Well, we're all here (have been here for the past couple of days, or more in some cases). The weather is also here. Lots of rain. "Intermittent showers" was forecast for today; lots of rain, not much pauses between rain. Late today was decent. Heavy rain/Tstorms expected tonight; supposed to be nice (finally!) Sat. afternoon.

Some good riding has been going on, of course, and Susan Galpin (LD mileage slave) has given a talk the past 2 evenings. VERY interesting, educational, and entertaining.

I've met lots of BMWLT notables: Dave Dragon, Don Norwood, Don Major, and several whose names I don't recall at this moment. This is my first chance to get online since I arrived Thursday afternoon. Joe (messenger13) is here on his Ninja, of course. Joe is... being Joe. Several guys are enjoying their CBSs (Chocolate Brownie Sundaes).

I came here expecting nothing in the way of installed goodies. Yesterday I bought Jpegs from a guy who didn't want them any more; the Mick-o-Pegs team put them on my LT and THEN installed MOPs. Sweet. With all the curves in this part of the world I've been afraid to use them yet!

A Motolights rep arrived tonight and will be doing installs tomorrow. Hmmm.... maybe I'll swap my white bulbs for those amber bulbs that really stand out.

I've seen lots of farkles, mod, and creative things on LTs since I've been here. Lots of ideas for the future...

During a break in the rain my wife and I rode to Fontana Dam, Fontana Village, and checked out Robbinsville. Tomorrow, after the rain leaves, we want to ride the Cherohala Skyway and FINALLY I'll get to ride the Dragon.

That's about it for now. I'm sure others will have more to say. Online access is available at the Iron Horse Lodge (HQ motel), but most guys are checking the weather, news, their investments, etc.

Later!

One explanation for the lack of posts from STC is that the Ironhorse PC is out of order. Last year it was in constant use. As a result, only those who brought laptops are able to communicate.

Yabut, last year it looked like a geek convention: a lot of us had laptops.

Isn't it interesting how it can be so different! The problem was the eating, drinking, talking, eating, sitting, eating, sleeping, and visiting. Also with the cloud cover the sat link was out as much as it worked.

That sure was a good ride paw paw! even with the rain it was a good trip.

No the brownie I got was hard as a rock, I couldn't even cut it with a fork it covered in Ice Cream.

Everyone was quite cause it rained like cats and dogs, then everyone went out riding theat learned someting from Susan. Skippy visited one evening and everyone ran and hid

Susan Galpin had everyone in stiches most of the time

Don gives good party. Dragon was fun as usual so was Lynn even though trailers are for boats since this year there was no snow <big grin>

there was a fellow that showed up that made th elt look like a moped, it's the first time I have even seen someone stand up with both legs over the seat and have like a foot between his seat and his legs! wish I could have talked to him more, seemed like a neat guy.

OH OH OH OH

My story...

Rode to Brett's on Tuesday. 640 miles of sunshine and smiles.

Got to the Iron Horse on Wednesday after riding about 50 miles through some of the hardest rain I've ever ridden through. That Ninja sure doesn't have the protection that the LT offers.

Thursday, I rode with Doug Hines on his GS. Boy, that guy can ride! Also rode with Larry and Joey (on his Rocket III). Joey won't be trash talking my Ninja anymore. Call it a hunch.

Friday, DaveDragon and I went out for a "sprited ride". Started out wet, ended wet, with about 170 miles of dry and CRAZY betwixt. More fun than two guys are allowed to have. And all under the posted speeds. Yea . . . RIGHT!!!

Saturday, I rode with Tom Gallo and his wife Karen. Tom showed us some excellent roads...great time. On the way back, I broke the land speed record for the area...then I let Tom ride my Ninja. I'll let him tell you about that experience.

Each night was filled with stories around the campfire. Met new friends...ribbed old ones...you know the deal.

Sunday I headed to T.W.O. with Tom & Karen, and Brett. It was so cool to see a few hundred bikes at one place...and only a few of them were Harleys. What an amazing array of bikes. Every make and model and type. And T.W.O.'s food is second-to-none!

Stayed at Tom's house Sunday night, then headed home Monday. Almost 800 miles in the saddle of a Ninja is a bit much. I slept like a baby Monday night...in my own bed!

Seven days, and almost 2,500 miles. Not too shabby on a Ninja.

See what u missed

Now Griff, these are only SOME of the stories that you missed. Joey & Joe ARE lucky they didn't end up in the clinker!

Joe never did let me ride his Ninja though! He was probably afraid that I would ride it better than him anyway! HAHA
