Was boring as heck...mostly just a store with all the TV bikes on show...an OCC visit HAS to be done on a weekday when "hopefully" the shop is busy...
The stop at Mikeys gallery in montgomery was great... and lunch at Gullys was same as its been for 30 yrs....awesome....
And of course, the ride with my good friends was best of all, even if we didnt have a destination.

Couldn't agree more....boring!
My daughter lives near by so I've been to the original store (Mikey was there on a Vespa scooter ) and the new. Nothing to get excited about.
Now Gully's??....that's different....I'm in!

Next time yer up my brother, guess where we're havin lunch !!!!...was great too, because after, we took the twisties on 218 from Cornwall to West Point...had we more time, couldda stopped there too...but you wouldnt be interested...its just the Army, lol....
I used to go there to watch USAF vs Army games (I had a congressional appt to the USAFA...dumbazz me turned it down...little did I know)...they had 2 (Marine)F-4s do a fly by at halftime once...was awesome because they hit their afterburners, then went back up the Hudson. Back then the USAF was flying F105s outta Plattsburgh AFB...spent a lotta time there...got rated on the M-16..."Home of the Thud'...shame they shut it down....

Here's where its at...what its all about...the whole ball of wax as Hank Fonda stated In Sometimes A Great Notion.....
Good friends, good times, and brotherhood !!!!
I was used to ridin with big groups...clubs mostly...sometimes up to 150 bikes....but this make things tighter, closer...more meaningful...

If you look close, you can see Pauley spying on us thru the blacked out glass, right by KC's butt (we werent supposed to be there, but said "screw it")....I think its a great statement....3 japper bikes in front of PJD, lol..."artistic'...Im a Harley guy at heart, had em my whole life almost, but this pic is awesome !

...KC, ya need to grow s'more hair...gonna be a cold winter, lol....
