THE RAIN IS GONE! Finally! Aaaannd, here comes the heat. It’s looking like Saturday we’ll be riding into 104-degree temps, that is, unless you decide to participate in the annual Ride ‘n’ Bowl in Yerington, where it should be significantly cooler. The lunch destination in Genoa (Nevada, not Italy) should also be a decent temperature with shady spots to eat really good homemade sandwiches.
Speaking of shady spots, our poker run went off (although with a hitch or two) but ended up at Mike Ledbetter’s estate for lunch, drinks and games. Mike is a very gracious and generous host, and he deserves a round of thanks from all those who were there. I certainly had a good time cooking for everyone, and I’m hoping next year will have an even bigger turnout.
Our coterie of riders will be going north, to Alaska (north, the rush is on) soon after the holiday weekend and we wish them all well and good riding. I’m expecting daily reports on how it’s going; it sounds like the ride of a lifetime and some of us who can’t make it will want to live vicariously through them.
I’m starting to get more pictures of member’s motorcycles at sites from my Where’s My Name contest now that summer is in full swing. Please check the forum for my post about some corrections to a few site descriptions. Unlike last year’s contest, I haven’t actually been to many of the sites, so I went off Google earth for them. Mea culpa. I am hearing of a possible group ride to several of the local sites in July. Stay tuned for details, but here’s a chance to gather 6 tickets in an easy day’s ride.
Easy trivia question today: Whose song did I reference above?
