A tolerable day

March 22, 2008
A nice day today; the weather was almost nice, 72F. I fired up the Silver Wing, hooked up with my brother Conrad, and rode out to 29 Dreams motorcycle resort for lunch, and then to Barber motorcycle museum to tour the museum, and to meetup with a bunch of Valkyrie Riders to hand off the package for the Valhalla Journey. This is a program dreamed up by one of the members to bolster club participation by members around the Lower 48. A pair of mugs were custom produced in Norway, a very nice set - blue in color, with the image of a Valkyrie, and the handles are gold dragons. The program is for the mugs to be transported by members through all of the 48 continental states, and to end up in Johnson City, Tennessee for the national ride-in in August. Today was the handoff from Mississippi to Alabama. The mugs were accepted by Redvalk of Montgomery, and photos were made at the Barber museum, it being something unique to Alabama. There is also a log with the mugs, signed by all who participated in the handoff. Tommorrow, Redvalk will deliver them to Florida, for handoff to the folks there, and on it goes. Very nice. 31 states so far.
The first weekend in May is the Alabama state ride-in at Cheaha Mountain state park, and it looks to be a real party. So far, 123 riders from 18 states are signed up, the longest rides so far from Minnesota and New Mexico. Looking forward to it.
