Hey Mike, it was pretty good. I went to my son's place in Alabama and we rode to Thunder Beach together. We went down Friday and left Sunday. Had a hotel room set before hand. Part of the venue was in the parking lot right outside our door. Free beer and entertainment. There was a LOT of noise. On Front Beach Road the people on the roadside and on the hotel terraces kept yelling at the bikers to rev their engines. The V-Twin crowd loves that & were very eager to comply. I would like to have all the Gas that was burned with the clutch lever pulled in that weekend.

There was a lot of things to see. We saw some real nice machines that must be there for display only. Fantastic paint jobs. I also saw one creation (bike?) that was weird. It was a very sttrreettcchheed Trike that looked great. When I looked closer I found that the Handlebars did not turn and were not connected to the front wheel. It had no way to turn. Looked good but must be trailered everywhere.


I bought a few things, including some ground effect lighting. I installed the lights on Monday the day after I got home. Made the wife happy.
