For all of ya who aren't on my Facebook, I made it home safe and sound. Almost 500 miles worth on the way back due to construction in a couple spots. I spent the last 5 miles (2 minutes :)) in the rain. I gotta say though, having the bridge shut down and taking that goat path they call a detour was horrid. I was driving at 15mph for miles over gravel covered switchbacks.

Definitely glad you got home, and we got to hang out for a little while. CMP kinda sucked without you there, so this made up for it. And I really enjoyed watching the Vmax move around. I really need to do my forks. The OEM suck. Plus it helps that you seem to be able to read any turn on any bike.

Now for the fun part... prep for the awesomeness that will be the 2014 Convention :fact

I think I fell through a few of those turns, lol.

Roger that for 2014. Need to get it together and build this group back to what it has been. I don't know of a single person who didn't have a great time. Even after the Panty-Gale dry humping!

Oh, and the official death count:
Vmax- 3
Possum-0
Bird-0
snake-0

Big ass coyote jumped out at the 1 mile marker of the dragon. Missed him though. There was an infinity tearing it up while I was coming by. The brakes were in FI-Ya. I think Killboy did a night run as well, looked like an s2000 with HID's.

Ummm... the bridge was open this morning. :fact

Not sure if you were talking about the detour today or when you first got down to the convention? :dunno
