HA!! And trust you not to photoshop them?? I think not! I just watched the video to see how to do it, and now, let the fun begin!
I named this one, the 3 Stooges! Bear, OneThumb (aka the Mayor of Vogville), and Candubrain performing a rarely-seen re-enactment of a totem pole design session.

Have to apologize for leaving early this morning, still had a few hours of work to be done to get my Dad's Blazer back on the road. And was it pissing rain when we left, the motel (hotel) before 8!
Again thanks Bear for organizing a great weekend and many thanks to his wife for the spread of food. Have to thank Wayne's World for the great gifts for the draw. Got home around three this afternoon, and still raining in the Bancroft area at 1 PM this afternoon when I went through.

Gab and I met some great folks this weekend, it was a blast.

Well we made it back to Sudbury at 4:30 pm in one piece and dry believe it or not. Naturally we had a couple of pit stops along the way and we stopped for lunch in Rosseau. It rained all the way from Bancroftto Parry Soundwith the exception of about 10 minutes near Halliburton.Some of it was a real heavy down pour but mostly it was just a constant rain.
What a great weekend,we knew thatrain couldn't/wouldn't spoil a gathering of such a great bunch of people.
Bear and Laurie,thanks again, youfolks are amazing. Bancroft is a good ride from Sudbury but we're already looking forward to riding through the area again. Wayne's World, what agreat place, what great people to talk with, andwe still can't get over how generous they were toward the ride this weekend. I can't wait to add mynew toy to the bike, thanks to Wayne for making it possible for me.
We're looking forward to seeingthe photos and adding a few toour own personal album. Next time we gather I'll put Yogi in charge of bringing our camera.
Hope to see you all again soon.

Hey DL. How did you manage to get the totem photo without Rick in it?
Oh Yeah.... I get it! LOL
It was nice to see some familiar faces on Friday night and to meet some new ones. Sorry I wasn't able to stick around. It sounds like I missed out on a great weekend. I am looking forward to some more photos.
Ride safe all. If nothing comes up before then I hope to see you next year.

some photos from the meet

We seem to be seeing a lot of Mr Hollywood, aka DL1000



I think Nepper is telling OT, that Coors Light is the preferred lubricant for squeaking backrests, either that or he just found out all 3 cans are empty.


GET ME MY AGENT......NOW!!!!


The line up, well almost all of them


Sutherland, Mrs Jackfrost, Mr Jackfrost, Wayne from Waynes World, and some random photo op guy in the background


I have no idea what Wayne keeps pointing at, but it must be important




Okay, someone must have told Wayne it's not polite to point, notice hands in pocket. I think it was Sutherland, giving the universal sign of 2 fingers down. Don't understand the grin on Jackfrost, must be self induced.



Some random Travelocity Garden Gnome wanted his photo taken with me


Whaddah mean we can't ride in the trunk?


you put dah beer is where to stop the squeaks??


We're going to help lubricate OT's Pin


Just before the OOGGA BOOGA hit


This is the proper way of washing a Vision


future Vision Rider


And the Guy that keeps us all together.....Our Mayor, may he reign long

Great pictures and commentary. I never got to ask you how the ice cream was. I was tempted to drive across and join you but Mike said something about cold beer and I got confused with what I wanted so I defaulted to the beer.

Kawartha's Ice Cream was the best I've ever had. I felt your confusion, so I quickly went for beer afterwards.

Speaking of Confusion, why does OT have a PD friday the 13th photo mixed in with the Bancroft bunch

AND WHERE ARE EVERYONE ELSE'S PHOTOS?????

Staging for Saturdays' ride through Algonquin Park


Stop in Dorset for lunch,
Nepper taking rain gear off

Gabby, I hope it dosen't rain any more.

Sutherland, tea anyone?

Sutherland, Where is Sandra when I need her?

Stopping for lunch
L-R, Gabby with back to camera, Kathy, Buckwheat & DaveE.

Guess what he's up to?

Likewise

Rule # One, Don't leave camera un attended

Laurie, I don't care how you do it, we'll need more food, This riding group has an Eating Disorder.

No wonder we didn't see any OPP on the roads, they are all on the water.

As usual Jakfrost is holding everyone up, his ride always draws a crowd.

Where is everybody?
