    FLBMW Rally is a blast. Ride the track on saturday for 20 bucks, dance until your toes at night. Sunday visit Ithaca and the farmer market and a winery or two on the way back for sunday dinner and more dancing. It is a HOOT! We just got our lights turned back on and heading out first thing in the morning.
    We're not here for a long time
    We're here for a good time HUEY LEWIS

    I knew that the MOA was an "Old Mans Club" when I joined but I never imagined that I would be reading this much bitching and complaining after a national motorcycle event. Maybe the next rally should be at some kind of Health Clinic or Hospital where we can all have our own air conditioned rooms with a host of nurses ready to attend to our every discomfort.
    Sure it was hot, but as a "biker" you should expect that from time to time .... along with the possibility of cold, rain, wind .... and some other stuff Nature has to offer.
    I feel SO badly for anyone that put effort into the rally - and there was alot of effort. I personally didn't lift a fingar but I think those who did did a great job and put on a good rally. Thank you.
    With that said, its time for me to get out and ride (after I check the thermostat
    I think there's a great point and a not so great point here. Not so great: I don't care if your fat, skinny, old, or young. Heat is dangerous, so is cold, rain and what ever else. This club isn't about seeing who can pee the furthest. Great point: The people that put this stuff together are volunteers. They don't have to do any of this, they're not getting paid and they're busting their butts for our benefit. I'm new to this club but I'm sooo grateful for it because I can't think of many other places where there is so much opportunity to enjoy your bike, meet like minded people, or share the great things we discover on our bikes. SO complain all you want, but remember you are lucky to have something to complain about. And from what I can tell, the volunteers are listening, they'll work to make it better next year, and when your frustrated about how things are going, stop, take a step back and look around at the people you get to spend this time with. Things could be worse.

    I look forward to meeting you all at future events and rallies and wish you safe riding.

    the answer to this is simple.... drink more.
