Home safe and sound about 3:30 pm yesterday. Packing furiously for the east coast today..
Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome on our first nassir event. We really had a great time and enjoyed every minute.
The Mrs. and I left early this morning to avoid as much of the heat as we could, and it worked pretty well. Got home about 10:15 with nare a sweat bead on my head. We had a great time, Bob and Anita did a wonderful job, sorry Anita you didn't get any riding in. Sally loved it so much I have already been told to move heaven and earth to make sure we attend next years.
One odd thing, while driving through horse farm country a lot of the horses seem to be running with us along the fence. I can only imagine they had sensed there were two more wild rhinos running in the pack and they wanted to pay their respects. It was either that or, I was practicing the mating sound of the wild rhinos at the time, they may have been looking for a date. :shock::shock:
got home at 10:15PM after self-baking at the Peace Bridge for about 45 mins around noon,bike ran fine after battery recharged itself after the electrical incident
thanks to everyone for the warm greeting to a "firsttimer" , i will be at NASSIR-7
? Does everyone in Ontario leave for the USA everyday and come back at night since 95% of the vehicles had ON plates and even leaving a foot in front of mc resulted in someone trying to cut in front of you. GRRRRRRR:notrolls::cussing::cussing::cussing:
Well.......You can let all the women and children back out into the streets in Canada as Flyone has returned to the US. Just boarded a flight in Buffalo heading out to Atlanta.
The flight that arrived from Atlanta had a fallen Marine on board bringing his remains back to Buffalo. The Airport authorities, the Patriot Guard, and Buffalo Police Dept and the passengers in the terminal did a good job bringing this soldier home.
We made the first leg down to Richmond Va. An 11hr run that took 15hrs . but heck ,J got to see the lower shore of Lake Erie . White caps and all .Garmine and I aren't the best of friends this evening .
Anita and I got home with no problems. I drove the truck and she rode her bike. Unfortunately Anita only got to ride to Simcoe and home, but we still had a wonderful time and met a lot of great old friends and some wonderful new ones. We will be booking for N7 soon.
I can also verify that Tricky was changing locks as I pulled out of the driveway. I did ask if he counted the silverware too as D-Rod was staying in the house. D=Rod must have been up all night contemplating dastardly deeds because he never did hear reveille at 7:30
Jeanette and I got home yesterday evening, 2100 miles on the bike and very sore butts
The advice for crossing at Port Huron was spot on, waited only 15-20 min.
saws-n-wings rode with us as far as Springfield Ill. Was great to have another bike to ride with for all those miles.
Hope to see everyone at NASSIR 7.
For the first nine years the name NASSIR (North American Steve Saunders International Rally) has been synonymous with great times and good memories shared with friends both old and new. The use of this particular name has solidly tied our summer rallies to goldwingfacts.com (Steve’s forum)...
