Weather not looking too good?

Have been checking the forecasts and it's not looking so good?

The big ole low just sitting and spinning over the mideast is slinging lots of bands across the Va. mountains and BRP area!

I hope the jet stream gets a hold of it and blows/moves it across.
Don't like running the twisties on wet roads!

extra booze and cards

Boy you got that right - I remember a Spring Break trip to South Padre Island with my buddies - we had the tent and shotgunned beers at every Historical Marker all the way down (and in between) - but set up on the beach and didn't realize a tropical storm was coming in that blew the tent down and broke the poles (seeing noone else on the beach was not a clue) - we spent a day in a motel playing cards and drinking the rest of the beer before going home without seeing a single bikini

We never thought to check the weather....

Now I ALWAYS check the weather...

Thought I might make this but not going to happen. Hope everyone has a great time. Have a beer (and a seegar, Brent & Earl) or two or three....you get the idea. I'm sure there will plenty of "Arrogant Bastards" to go around even if this one can't make it.

HI Russ!
Guess if you are not coming then we won't need the Harley award at the rally...
Hope you are well and see you soon, you arrogant bastard!

Is everyone bummed about the weather?

I know the weather reports aren't the best but; weather people have been wrong. It's great to ride in perfect weather but all riding is good riding.

I'm pumped
Leaving tomorrow stay over in Winchester.

Rain or shine

Rick

I'm sure it will still be a good time. Yeah, the bikes and the riding are fun, but it's the people who make it a great rally. Enjoy yourselves and everyone return safe.Sorry I can't make it, but I'll start planning now for next year
