we went back to the room for more of this crazy stuff...
i'll tell you where spring is, it's at my house, back home!
then we all hung out and had fun and pictures were taken and swag was distributed. everyone else is doing a good job of covering that, so i'll skip it.
soon we left. we stopped at a wind farm in illinois. i like wind farms.
you can get close to these windmills.
a nice breezy day...
skip to st. louis in fading light.
on the trip home we decided to try to do it all non-stop. we made it. here's a shot of the GPS as we finished our saddlesore 1000 around five this morning...
and here is is after we'd rolled into austin, which i think gives us the 1500 miles in 36 hours one too.
we made bad time since we stopped a lot, hung out at the arch for a while, and spent 1.5 hours futzing around in arkadelphia visiting some old friends of mine. well, i visited. john took a quick nap.
and what's the first thing we did when we got into texas? found a nice barbecue joint. wuhoo! it's sunny, it's warm and we're home!
so thanks to all the rounders that came, and let's all raise a glass to being able to live lives with good motorbikes, good people, and good rides!
