Three rides in one... Bar Harbor ME, PEI and Cromag '08

The plan was to ride with the www.gtasportriders.com on their September long weekend trip to Bar Harbor Maine, then ride form there up to my sister Wendy's place, then head back down to Maine to meet up with Willie, Darryl, and Roland for Cromag '08.

How do things like this get started?

The only bike that actually made it down to the harbor in Bar Harbor. :P

I'll tell him tonight, plus t-shirt. :P

Get your name on the list

From cromag thread.
"All right folks...anyone who is on the fence as to whether they are
coming or not needs to speak up...and anyone who wants a shirt needs to
make sure their name is on the list. I am going to post a final cost for
the weekend and shirts on Wednesday, so I need some (more or less) final
numbers...     Thanks!
Jeff"

Boring!

Now we're talking! The amplitude of the green squiggle is directly proportional to the smiles.

The more the cheaper!

FYI...I will be posting the cost for the weekend and the shirts tomorrow evening...

The cost goes down the more people we have...so if you know anyone who still hasn't committed, get them on board. Right now we have 101, with 86 confirmed...

Can't wait...we are only 4 weeks away!

Listen, it's a twelve hour ride from here to there, so if it rains or gets stupid I'll be staying in a hotel in Bangor or thereabouts and arriving later in the day on Friday.
See you soon.

We are in placid now
Don't have a lever

I'm leaving here tomorrow morning, so should see you in Brownfield tomorrow night if all goes well. I've got my cell on me, so will text message you where I am, just in case I'm a no show.
I got a brake lever, so if you bought one for me and brought it out with you, awesome, it's great to have a spare. :)
