Home Safe thread Mid-West Meet & Greet, Aug 29 - Sep 1, 2014

I'm home at 0900 Monday morning.

Started raining on me at the intersection of AR Hwy 45 and US 412.
Drizzled for 15 minutes and then the flood gates were turned loose on me.

After that, it just rained a good stead light down pour all the way home.

Nothing like 3 hours of rain to brighten your day.

Proud of the ST1100, it stuck to the road like it was on dry pavement. Never once felt like I was going to have a tire slide out in a curve.

Metzlers on that bike.

84Graywing and Stubbytoes made it home at 1300. Great trip, and really enjoyed the fellowship with John (AZGL1500) and of course Andy, Gene and the rest of the crew.

Well didn't maKe it home but I'm safe. Alternator went out on me about 15 miles from Ottawa KS. Walts about 30 minutes from home so he's chasing after his truck and trailer.
We were wet from ES into about Bella Vista and had a great weekend with everyone.
