Time for celebrating that (usually a) February THAW with Tom's annual Alabama RTE.

"Decks and Docks "overlooks the lake and is in NE Alabama. Y'all come now, ya hear?

This replaces the famous Barry's Brr B Q Ride of years past. Hope to see you there. (Cages welcome!)

There's still ample opportunity for chilliness to make its presence known. But, this is a Febrrrrrruary event, after all!
Encouraged by the interest shown. Got the oil changed on mine today in anticipation.
Four hex screws to lower the skid plate, and Voila!, her oil is changed with the turn of a 14 mm nut and a screw on filter. Lovin' the Vstrom....
See you folks soon!!

Terrific!! Hope to see you there. Forecast for me is a cold ride (like last year, but that's okay!)

Forecast a week out:  51 for a high, 37 for low, 20% chance of rain, partly cloudy, wind SW at 4.  We'll see if it holds.  We've had a coupla snowflakes and a coupla tornadoes in north Alabama in recent weeks, so you never know. ;D

Otherwise, see you there!

Wife has arthritis but she's a trooper... if at all possible, we'll head out in time to be there pretty much right at 11:30.  We're thinking about getting a cabin in Mentone or Guntersville to spend the night tomorrow night and head back home Sunday morning before the rain.

You guys have a great time. My Goldwing chapter is hosting an event 25 miles from home. Kinda hard not to go.  TCARS!

Good food and conversation, great to meet everyone. it was about 315 miles round trip. When I turned the key on my bike (z900rs), the temp display said "ICE". It was 30f at 8am and 52f when I pulled into Deck and Docks. It stayed in the 50s all the way back to Murfreesboro TN. :)

It was getting close to sundown when I got back so I had the gear on low 50's.  :great:

Thanks Tom for setting up the Decks & Docks RTE, it was a good location & good food. It was a cool start for me at 30 degs. It was good to see fellow COG members & meet new to me new ones. It was a great ride home. I made a detour to the Cycle Gear store in Hoover on the way home. About 340 miles for the trip. I am looking forward to the next one.
