Thanks for posting the images of the triple meet-up. Great to chat with other brick owners over a tasty lunch, and many apologies for the tardiness, my fault entirely for wandering the backroads to Cobb and forgetting about time. This would make a nice annual event.

Holy Moly, the storm front just moved in here, and it's howling rain! I hope Caveman and Stokester get home/shelter during this squall.

We also didn't get a picture of the commemorative crabs you provided!   Thanks!

We got that front a little before you did.  I suspect Stokes made it, but hope caveman didn't get hit too hard.

No weather issues here as I took the leisurely route through the Northern Neck home, just seemed to get more humid and hot.

Thanks for the inaugural ride memento!  It's a good chuckle and will be with me for any future meet-ups.

Good to hear you guys got back dry ... Well, Caveman uses paper maps, hence, is most likely extremely resourceful and rain won't faze him :)

Hmmmm, maybe a different character toy for each gathering. The inaugural Cobb Island, everyone got crabs!

Well, I'm bummed -- I didn't hear back from anybody by Wednesday do I figured no one was interested and then I forgot to check in again till just now.

Natalena,  you might  have to do  a one-on-one ride with me as a make-up, you live right around the block from there anyway.

Sorry the comms were wobbly, as I did mention you during the lunch. Anytime I'm around, just buzz and I'll ride. There's some rural roads out by Calvert that look great for biking and motoring...just need to explore them.

Dang, found this thread kinda late, by the looks of it.

Now I'm shipped off overseas for the rest of the year, won't get back to riding until late winter / early spring.

I'll have to keep my eyes open for another Meet thread.

Stokester - I'm surprised I haven't spotted you around. I ride around Yorktown quite a bit. I have a not-chopped K1100RS in the same color as your profile picture.

We used to do a Spring Zing-Ding-Ding with the RD/ 2-stroke riders back in the 70's. Lot's of fun and smoke!

April would be fun to do a Tax Day ride.

Well, shoot. Don't think I'll make it to a Meet. Just got my orders, headed to Alaska in March/April... Barely gonna be any riding season there. Pretty strict controls on military riders in Alaska, have to wait for approval each spring before riding, and they usually cut the season as soon as it gets below an abritrary temperature for an undisclosed amount of time. That's where I got my first Brick in 2015, but now I'll be about 8 hours further north.

Congrats on the PCS, it's a great state to explore, especially if you're into hunting/fishing/climbing.

Definitely. Not super hot on fishing, mainly because I can't catch anything haha. Wouldn't mind some moose and caribou in the freezer, however.

I was in Anchorage/Eagle River from '12-'16. Excited to go back. Too bad it's so far from what/where I know. Lots of bike and car enthusiast friends there.

My in-laws are south of Anchorage on the Peninsula, might convince my FiL to fly up, and I can get some training hours on the way down to his place.
