Today we met up with Clark & Kathy Flynn of Albuquerque, NM.
At 1 p.m. we went over to Escondido Cycle Center to have the parts installed on our respective bikes. Left there are 6 p.m. Can't say enough nice things about this company - VERY professional business. Went out of their way to accomodate us because we were from out-of-town.
Stopped by the motel - found Joe Sewell of the Tulsa, OK area. Joe, Larry and I headed for to Pat & Oscar's Restaurant for dinner with the TAA group.
The photos tell it all - good food. Lots of old faces, some new. Gary & Marj arrived a little late, but they did arrive on the trike.
Teresa won't be riding with Mike this year...says she's done it twice. She will ride as far as Victorville with the local CMA group.
Frank and Lil of York, PA arrived this a.m. - they had to stop in Vista, CA to replace a rear tire because they ran over something that damaged it.
Tomorrow we are heading for Kingman by way of Laughlin and Las Vegas....not looking forward to this route about way in extreme hot temperatures. We aren't leaving Oceanside until almost 9 a.m. Lots happening in Kingman that Gary's is excited about. I'm sure the long, hot ride will be worthwhile....at least that is what we are telling ourselves this evening.
Wayne isn't riding this year (last year we kept calling him Frank) and Frank isn't going either. It is possible that Bruce will be joining us tomorrow.
There are two guys form the Bay area - Dennis and Mark. They are riding all the way and having the bikes shipped back to CA....Dennis has a car rally to attend.
