Kudzu's Best Western breakfast. Rubber eggs and thin bacon..but it hits the spot!

Actually the breakfast is good a the motel. Biscuits and gravy, eggs, bacon, grits, waffles, lots of rolls and bread, and bagles. Also Yogurt, hot and cold cereals, and all the fixin's.

Blondy stopped for gas on the way here yesterday. She bought gas, and while she was inside the staton, her bike caught on fire. She was able to get most of her things off before the flames got this big. She took this with her cell phone. She went home, got her car and drove late into the night to get here to the rally!

More people arriving. Cargo went to Wal-mart and bought this ez up cover for a little outside protection. Most people will be in the banquet room tonight.

Sandy, ET, and Heather. Heather is one of the Robinson twins, and ET is her fiance. They rode down from Canada with Mom and Dad, (Skid and Sandy)

Lucky Al (my roomie here) and Malachi are installing a Vista Cruise.

Becaues of the large metal flake paint job, I like to tease Jamey T. about his bike looking like a Bass boat. So, he's added a nice hook for trolling for Bass in the Kenutcky mud puddles! I think that Malachi and his friend Stu had something to do with this

Tony D, finds his bike runs better on Sea Foam than gasoline! Note the Arizona VROC plate.

Lucky Al's New Jersey VROC plate.

Stewey's Illinois VROC plate. There are others, I'll have to look for them here.

There was a Waffle cafe next to our motel, so this was breakfast. Mine and Mal's.

Yvette's Waffle, full of butter and Maple syrup..just one bite for me.

Kentucky country side.

Little did we know when we were "suiting up" here just how bad it would get. We had almost 150 miles left to go, and it rained all the way. Sometime so hard you couldn't see the road. A car spun out in front of me, a couple of complete 360's, then shot off the road over a ditch and out into a field.

We finally was able to get off the road, and wait in this station for a while until we could see a little better. We picked up Flame Killer from Arkansas on the road, he was with us from here on in to the rally. We think it was his fault we got wet

The first dinner of the rally. Hooter's was packed with vroc folks. this is just one table.
