You got a purdy mouf, now smile like a donut.
lol - i guess you're safe then. Otherwise I might have felt comfortable enough to send you a golden box with a bent connecting rod probing the hole of a foam cut-out ***

Wish I could Sixshooter. I have been on vacation more days this month than I have been at work. (part of that is to blame on mandatory four day weekends on holidays)

IF there is such an event next year I would be very likely to attend. This is only 1.5hr from my girlfriend's apartment.

In regards to the MATG, it wast worth going even if it WAS mNetters primarily, and the roads weren't too bad. My "fast" runs were on the Cherohala Skyway and Six Gap. I did 129 mainly just to say I did. I can't say I will go every year but my GF enjoyed it so that's a plus. It's always nice finding couple type things to do.

Damn. Wish I would of known that was you. I talked to you about your hood vents at the dam photo.

We're so lost, lol.

Here's my car sneezing on a cop. The leader slows down after and we're like - go go go!
Via the biker getting the ticket - we were guaranteed tickets if we went back in - we hit the skyway instead - ain't that right Rob ;o)

This looks like a lot of fun. I may have to try to make it next year. Question though: how does one survive without getting ALL OF the speeding tickets?

Yup, we did. My guess, you weren't hauling enough, even one minute later - however hard you hauled......

Next time we have to run together, give the Troopers more targets to hit.

Speaking of hauling - here's the run down the skyway

Are you talking about the rattler? 28 south off 74 headed to Franklin. We hit it Sunday - very fun, not as much traffic but more driveways than i wish there was. I took video and the bike in front of me about plowed into the side of an Expedition that was turning into a driveway on a corner.
