I’m writing about my recent experience at the MR2 Michigan ride event down in Waynesville, NC. Keith Danielson a fellow MSTA member and I trailered down our bikes for part of the weeks activities. Leaving on Mothers day was a nonstarter for either of us so we joined the group in the middle of the week. The first day out, we went for the ultimate Route 4 journey hitting Deal’s gap (twice), The Cherohala Skyway and part of the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was a glorious day without a lot of traffic and we had the run of the roads for the most part. After 310 miles it was time to call it good for the day having hit the (3) majors I wanted to accomplish on this ride.

Squadron members Chris and Diane Hancock made the trek up from Evansville to the north side of Indy to give us a training session on Garmin’s much maligned Basecamp. With any new software, the learning curve can be steep but Chris’s hands on session helped some of us over the hurdle. Thanks to the Morgans for supplying the classroom and arranging for a pizza delivery.

Gentlemen and Ladies,
It’s been a great ride! It all started at Aspencade in 1986 at Hot Springs, Arkansas. Brad and Cinda Mobley left a note on my V-65 Sabre to visit with them about this new club. I did and here I am 27 years later. I’ve made a few friends along the way: Dana Sawyer, Moose Parish, Brad and Cinda, Elbert Silbaugh, Don Clark, Lynn Weas, Jimmy Garton, who could forget Webb “Eldon” Rix and Janet Chuculate, Linda and Jim Vance, Mike Steger and more. I don’t make STARs anymore, but my heart is there.
