    Welcome to the East...

    Home of the Big Gig. (Friday, January 16th in conjunction with the Cycle world International Motorcycle Show at the Jacob Javitz center in New york City.)

    This regional stuff is going to be very cool.

    Paul B, where are you my esteemed friend?

    Just back from Vermont

    Just got back from Vermont where the Vermont "MOOOOvers" had their monthly breakfast meeting. Have a lot of pictures from the meeting which included the obligatory snow falling on the roads.

    The Vermont rally committee met and the 2009 rally will be tweaked a bit to make it bigger and better.

    I suggest reconnoitering in each others territory along with lots of sharing of roads and foods. Then we can appoint a committee of volunteers, write up a charter and have our grandchildren report the results.

    Lets have our first CCC (Charter Creation Committee) in ... oh ... Tennessee follow by a rewrite at CIC (Color in the Catskills) and then a plenary session at the BIG Gig. Who knows, maybe we will find some Black Diamonds in there someplace?

    Not use settling the matter then what would we have to talk about?

    Kind of like the reenactments up here for the French and Indian wars. It all helps to sell beer, burghers and moon pies.

    Ian, your birth certificate allows you to stay and play in our sandbox

    And I have to say that Stone Mountain is a very large and impressive... stone mountain. Dug the tramway ride and cell reception on top is stellar.

    Hi All -

    Sunny and brisk up here in White River Junction today - not sure if it got down into single digits or not last night - I try not to look!

    I washed my 'stich Saturday, so I guess I've pretty much given up riding for the winter - lots of salt out there on the roads :-(

    But, we have the Big GIG III to look forward to

    Best,
    Muriel

    ian

    I thought I settled the issue by marrying one. I was mistaken.

    -2?? F here this AM. It is supposed to get to 50?? on Wednesday. If so, and I can get through driveway ice, I will ride.

    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.
