Not much to add but a bunch of ok and not so good pics. Had a great time, a closed road had me missing the main ride but @mpetry912 took 4 of us late comers on one, I was out of my depth which is none around 6 mi. in so peeled off, took a 5 mi. gravel path back to town, saw a coyote cross in front of me just past the golf course so it was good.

Here's a bunch of ok to not so good pics, most are redundant.






5+? Masi's and 1 Strawberry in attendance, you normally don't even see 1.

Huge shout out to Bob for having this, without him we are just peeing up a rope.

No way to get or show appreciation for this without bringing like minded people together.

It's also a massive collaboration that doesn't happen without it, networking, sourcing, debating and collecting information that is lost without the group as a whole, more opinion's, expertise, knowledge, leads, passion and help are crucial the further down the road we get.

It was a great gathering and perfect weather. The four of us did an alternate loop that had little if any traffic. Maybe 3 cars passed us entire ride ? was nice.

Several folks got to ride the new Dinucci, and a new bike followed me home.

Even though I've made the transition to 25mm tires on most of my bikes, I was thinking how great it felt to be carving it up on 23s. Just a perfect road for a narrow tire.

Next year, I should really bring my olympus slr and give the bikes the attention they deserve.

What a fantastic gathering of bikes (and riders).

Hard to imagine so many classics lined up in one place...and stretched out riding the pavement.

Great to see all these pics.

There can always be a ride.

Not sure if there's an official one.
