I'm Still Here...
It's been a busy couple of months, and I've neglected my blog. Sarah reminds me that people worry, so here's an update.
In April, Rich and I went to Falls Creek Falls State Park in Tennessee to meet up with a bunch of our friends from GL1800riders.com. The annual event is called the "Tennessee Lunch Run," and folks come from all over to eat lunch and ride together. We met our friend Ross in southern Indiana and rode the rest of the way with him.
At the park we saw many, many beautiful bikes, and I got to meet several of my chat room friends for the first time. It was good to see our old friends, too. We forgot our camera for the trip, so I don't have many pictures, but here are a few:

Galute, from Arkansas (his name is self-explanatory!)

Polecat, from Ohio, looking a bit like Jack Elam these days, Loren, formerly from Wisconsin, but now living in Arkansas, me, Rich, and 5Ross, from Indiana.

Rich and I at a lovely waterfall somewhere in North Carolina.

The "Tree of Shame" at Deals Gap. This stretch of road is also known as "The Tail of the Dragon" because it has 318 curves in eleven miles, and is a very popular place for motorcyclists of all sorts and skills. The Tree of Shame is bedecked with parts picked up after crashes. We didn't ride the Dragon the day we were there. There were at least three different bike rallies in Tennessee that weekend, and the road was crowded and dangerous. Another time, perhaps! .

And last, but certainly not least, a few pictures of Robby. He grows and changes with every passing minute, and is a great joy to us all!
