Well, I went for a ride today.

We left this morning at 9:30 and just got back after 117 miles today (not alot of miles but you'll read why it took 8.6 hours to do). My other half and I took the bikes we did a charity run on the motorcycles for Emily Keys ( one of the girls who were taken hostage at a High School in Baley, CO). She was shot by the psycho. This all went down last week. VERY SAD!

So when we left we expected 200 bikers or so. There were an estimated 4000 to 6500 bikes according to some of the PD and FD volunteers. It was the coolest thing to hear them all start up at one time and everyone revving them. my ears are still ringing. This was my first time riding at an event with so many bikes. There were so many people on the sides of the roads giving the thumbs up, signs thanking people etc. Once in the town of Bailey everyone with a home, everyone with a business was outside on the edge of the road with tears and smiles, high five'n people, waving, shaking hands. It was very touching to say the least. You could tell they appreciated everyone being there and taking the time to donate and show support for this little MTN town.

The cops were busy. Anything with 4 wheels was kicked to the curb for the most part. It was one big escorted ralley for the most part.

There were more Harley's than there were sport bikes, but we all road together today. I even had a few come up to me to check out the 10 with compliments.

Just thought I'd share.

Way to ride for a good cause. I did the Sacramento to Bay Area ride for the troops and it was over 5000 bikes in that ride.
