    My first time in Kings canyon, first time seeing a bear in the wild, my first time riding in a group and my first time at a pashnit function. Great experience thanks to you all. Everyone was so nice and the food was great thanks Ian, Becca and the girls . Thanks for all the work putting this trip together. Look forward to another soon. I am so glad I went. The scenery was so awesome. Can't believe I have never been there all this time. Going back soon as I can. Thanks again everyone for making me (the only Harley dude) feel welcome. Rock On
    Earl p.s. look at the stars
    Look at the stars. That was so funny. You kept saying that all night long. Kenny did take some photos of the stars. So, you can now return to this site and remember when you looked at the stars. It was great fun meeting you. I'm glad you made it home safe without incident.

Sorry to complain after a truely memorable weekend, but its a grim reminder of city life after such a beautiful location/great people/super riding. Thanks to all who did the work.

    DrJ, I'm glad to know you made it home safe. It was a pleasure meeting you. It was a great riding with you. Hope to see you again for the SoCal ride.

    And here's a couple from my Thursday "sidetrack" into Yosemite, before going to Don & Cyndi's for dinner and a place to spend the night.
    Thanks Don & Cyndi!

    Sometimes it takes a whole tankful of fuel before you can think straight!

    Ride as if your life depended on it!

    All that and your virtue remained intact! You were not molested (No mother, he's a nice person), brainwashed into a cult (well sort of, we IS a moto cult), no Amway presentation, and all with a well fed good time...

    Sopiago is coming up and that one rocks too (better, camping wise, actually...except for the food) . SKIII will be added to my list of must do Pashnit events. So then, Spring, Summer, and Fall gatherings...life is good.

    Looks like a good time was had. I may have to trek out to the fall gathering. Don't think I've heard of a bad time yet!!

    Cheers!!!

    Thanks, Larry. We really had a good time riding, though I didn't really get to talk to everyone enough. I'm sort of slow when it comes to socializing.

    It was a big thrill charging off the corners to try and keep up with you sporty-bike types. That the Nomad does well, but entering the corners there was some rough stuff that kept me slowing a lot to keep the front tire planted. A ride like that really points out the need for better fork springs, and a fork oil change too. With 23,000 miles on it, mine is sincerely worn out.

    Anyhow, I posted my photos up this AM, but then suffered a server glitch of some kind & will now have to do it all again. I'm glad you took photos of people, because all I got was big rocks & multicolored bikes, & one small lake.
