  • Deals Gap Ride

    Wanted to share a couple pics with y'all on a ride to the Dragon I made with my brothers. This was a trip that was a couple months in the making trying to get on everyones vacation schedule. In the end one of my brothers couldn't come as his vacation was canceled by his boss. He spent the next 21 days on an oil rig in the gulf as a resuly of the big spill. After 520 miles and a total of 15 hours in the saddle we made the loop up to the dragon and even managed to squeeze a little time in at the Cherokee casino. All in all it was a great time to spend with my brothers and a couple new brothers and out Harleys. All though one my brothers still rides a big Kawasaki I think we're pretty close to turning him over to the right side.

    We were hardly home after thinking we couldn't go another mile before we started laughing and sharing stories from the ride. As I get older I really enjoy these rides.

    It's not the destination it really is the journey!!

    Jim, That is So cool! What a great story! You are so right that it's all about the journey AND the people you share it with. Thats pretty lame that your brother's boss canceled his vacation after so much planning. Was it because of the spill or before the spill? Seriously enjoyed your pics!

      It was because of the spill. Not sure what he's doing out there but he has a pretty good reputation in with his customers and wanted to make sure they are taken care of.

                          Man this is great, this is better than getting my name in the phone book. I tried to explain to my wife last night about the herd and how I thought this is pretty cool and I'm not sure she gets it yet. Have to keep working on her.

                          Thanks Boss I'm looking forward to seeing it..

                            my family thinks its unusuall and odd that i speak of the HERD as my extended family too. they have just come to expect that i'll relay some story about a HERD member or happening at least 3-4 times a week...dont sweat it jim...she'll come around and if she/you ever meet the HERD in person, it'll all become crystal clear
