Well, there were several hundred bikes there. Perhaps as many as 600+? But there were only about 8 sportbikes.
Almost all Harleys or clones.

Certainly the ride was for a good cause and the weather was great, but I really do not appreciate these types of events. They take too long.

We went on a 37 mile loop and we barely made it to 40 MPH, once. Most of the time we were in the 28 or 29 MPH zone, at least that is what the portable radar trailer said. This is what makes it so hard for me. Going slow for whatever reasons.

However, as above, it was for a good cause and I know the family appreciated the support of all those who came to ride.
