Great day for this ride. The weather was perfect. I had the pleasure of meeting G$, and his father. Also met racer04, he is from Indiana. This was my first toys for tots ride, and I was impressed to see so many bikes :shock:

I hope to be able to ride with you guys again. Hey G$, keep me posted on the next ride you guys have!

The sunshine sure brought em outta the woodwork for this one. Although the ride was short, my crew did about 200 miles round trip. A great day to ride indeed. My pleasure to meet you & your family, Cheryl.

Did you ever hear the final bike count? I'd guess around 800...give or take a few Boss Hosses. <grin>

The Marine corps are having two more toy drives that I know of....11/21 in Etown and 11/28 in Louisville. I'll post it as its comes across my desk.

Nick thought there were a few thousand bikes on that ride. I ma not good at estimating how many. LOTS of bikes, lol. Those BOSS HOSSES were something else. My son calls them BOSS HOGS, lol. All in all an short ride, but like you we logged on a few getting there and home.

It looks like the weather is going COLD on us this week. I hope we have a few more days to ride before we have to put the bikes up for the winter.

Hope to ride with you guys next season. We really need to get the KY gang together.

Hi racer04,

It was a pleasure to meet you too! I had a great time on the Toys for Tots run. Not sure how many bikes were there,,but WOW! I will have to see about the run on the 28th. It might be too cold for this old gal to ride. If I do, I am bringing a thermos of coffee.

By the way, nice AVATAR :wink: lol
