    Sorry to hear that Jack.

    A funny story from a few years back.

    We left Boondocks, the start of the ride and rode to Jose Maria's a Tex-Mex place in Bayou La Batre. Just a few bikes with us, we played our hand, had a quick cold one and headed back out. Right across the street were 2 Bayou La Batre police cars as we left, the rest of the pack arrived, I don't think the police had any idea of how many bikers were invading they sleepy little town:D

    Follow up post on the ride. The weather was great and we had a tremendous turn out, 339 registered riders...wow! Don't know about the final $ tally, but hopefully we will exceed last years. Here's some pics of the gathering at BoonDocks.
