REunion
« on: July 04, 2007, 04:36:24 PM »
Hello!  I wanted to say what a great time we had at the REunion a couple of weeks back.  Diane and I really enjoyed meeting the CMW staff and going for a ride.  Our ride was not without incident, however.  The 300 miles it took to get to Faribault were soaked in about 200 miles of rain, and Renfield (Diane's name for her 2006 Military) decided to do a bit of off-roading when a bit of gravel in a corner caught her out only 30 miles from home:




All tolled, we did 713 miles on the weekend, and every one of them were a treat.  Except maybe for the stretch of I-90 crossing the river with it's 70 mph speed limit.  The RE did 70 without too much fuss, but I guess most people think that 70 is the lower limit because it was like we were standing still with big trucks flying past us and the RE at it's limit.  Luckily, we only had to be on the "I" for a few miles, and it all came good.

This weekend, it'll be 450 miles around Wildcat Mountain in western Wisconsin, we've found some of the best motorcycle roads in the Midwest, and will spend all weekend exploring them with a few friends on their bloated cruisers.  No way they'll keep up with Renfield on those roads.  Expect a trip report next week!

Simply put the link to your picture in between image tags. 
Just click the image button above and insert the link to your picture between the tags.  You'll have to have the photo hosted on some other site or in the gallery here.

Better question... How do you SEE the pictures in the post? I looked at this whole thread, including the original message, and I see no pictures at all.  :o

Robb,
It never occurred to me that the picture needed to be hosted somewhere, makes sense though. Thanks a lot.

Robb's original message had two great photos of the REUnion... linked in from a Yahoo! Group. It looks like the links aren't working any more.
