...and from the sounds of it, redeemed a couple from previous not-so-great experiences. It's good to know that we're always learning and getting better.

My family and I had a great time. Thanks Matt, Dan, Randy and the rest of the gang for making this run outstanding.

It was great having you guys, glad you enjoyed it!

I was just thinking, we did have an upside-down bezel on the run, which much have made the cruiser gods unhappy. That's why we ran into so much trouble.

That was a great way to spend a Wednesday afternoon. I had fun pitching in, and Matt was a mighty fine leader. Seemed everyone had a good time - lots of smiles all around.

James you did great job driving that sweet 80.

Glad you all had a good time!

Fine, fine...I'll bust out the wire cup, get it cleaned up, painted, and flipped over. Good thing I didn't take it on the trail...It might have ended up on its top.

Glad to hear the run was a good time! I have been thinking about you all for the last two days, wishing I could have been there.
