After a very short discussion we agreed that we’re down to do this again. But then you already knew that. Here’s some stuff you didn’t know. We saw some things we know we can do better while maintaining the randomness in how we operate.
We pretty well know our start and end points but are keeping them on the down low for a while.
We know pretty much who will show and who won’t so we’re gonna listen to those guys and make it into something they would like while at the same time giving the new person a quality event that they can be as stoked on it as the rest of us.
Route: Yeah we got a loose route figured out and we’re both pretty stoked on it. If you rode with me to the Borro and recall the curves and elevation changes on down 136 when we went past GT’s road, then you have a good idea what to expect for most of the ride.
Parties: Of course, but no details
Here’s a teaser. Since this is R4YL 3.O we’re going to be riding in 3 states over the 3 days…
8.5.2011…Mark it down 357 days will fly by

Rumor has it a Triumph riding bird of prey from the mitten might make an appearance as well.

Yesterday I was still feeling like this
After 2 days of this
I think it's starting to sink in how good a time we had, everyone who came we owe a big thanks to for supporting our dumb asses. Even the guy who broke in KY and didn't get home (Ok) till this morning at 4:45 was still stoked.... Thanks to all of you for the kind words.
More pics are flowing for me to throw up here so keep an eye open for that. Also we're busy securing plans for next year already. So stay tuned.
Meanwhile, here's an interesting set of photos

So Friday was actually a great party man Pliers rocked the house and many a beer were drank, sat was a great ride (slowest 180 of my life but whatever it's part of the game) Grey beards at the Burro were telling me we were "doing it right" so that's cool. One thing of note was; there were probably twice the amount of people from out of state than there were from
. As I recall Ohio Illinois, Indiana, Oklahoma, Michigan, New York, Canada, Missouri, and of course were in attendance. Pliers & Poop De Flex rocked with us all damn night. Ohio
Nate (shin guard if you hit twine ball run) rode a Yamaha Vstar 650 we dubbed tetanus from
, with an intake manifold held together with JB weld and electrical tape at speeds well over the posted speed limit. When he got to Oh he was pulled over by OSP for 85 in a 65, with a machete strapped to his bike and got out with a WARNING!!! Anyone from Oh will tell you OSP rarely gives warnings. He tried having the intake welded here and that caused a ton more problems. He worked on that bike all night Friday and again Sat, in the end he made the run. All while parting full throttle the entire time. This netted him the OldSchool Helmets giveaway lid as our Long Hauls and Close calls award. Oklahoma
Unfortunately as of this morning he is broke down in KY waiting for a trailer to come get him but he’s in good spirits.
Sat was another good time with beer and food provided by the great people @ Anna’s Army. The party included a burn out pit for those who dig that stuff, an epic battle of rock paper scissors for a chance at the give away stuff as well as a bar rising bon fire that was only missing a sacrificial virgin.
If you’re ever around KlubFoot avoid swings he’s deadly!
Violation tour guys were there in full force (we’re doin that tour next year wherever it may be) Great to meet you guys.
I’m sure I left some out as the hangover is still knee deep in my ass but that’s all part of the game.
If you missed this again… you have 361 days to decide you can’t miss R4YL 3.0… 8.5.2011….

So we had some guys (Cold Stares) lined up for Friday but they had some last minute recording issues come up so they had to bow out. Lucky for us Pliers out of Ft Wayne stepped up at the last minute and we're back to having music. Only a few work days left till this shit is ON. You can check out Pliers here
Thanks for the heads up on this one AL-DIABLO
