Va Guzzisti,
 Well this month 'ole Ma Nature over compensated for the good weather we've had in June & July.  Friday night weather underground had a 100% chance of rain totaling 1 1/4" inches for Saturday in Buena Vista. By Saturday morning this was reduced to 80% totaling 1/2". There was a steady moderate rain at my house  when the time to head out rolled around Saturday morning, so, I weenied-out & drove the 'pup. I bought some food for lunch at the Food Lion in Madison Heights & rolled on to Buena Vista. Pulling up to the double-decker, I saw a table full of people...it turned out they were a family having a lunch just like we were.  I walked on past to where Bob Corfield had parked his bike near one of the tables further back.
The rain fell steadily while Bob & I ate our lunches, caught up & he took me on a "guided tour" of his gorgeous TT850. He already has over 11K miles on the bike & LOVES it.  I thought my V7III had an impressive  "light show" w/all the electronic gee-haw indicators on the speedo face, but the TT puts it to shame!  All in all a VERY cool motorcycle!
So, at least I didn't lunch alone, & we had one intrepid Guzzisti ride his bike in spite of Ma Nature.....Oh & Bob calls "weenie" on all y'all, LOL  I got an email saying his ride home was only wet until he got over the mountains, and that the roads were pretty much dry by the time he got close to home.
My new knee install is scheduled for early Sept., so I'll be out of action for the  Sept. & possibly Oct. lunches depending on how the recovery/rehab goes.  Watch you email for a Sept. host/location if/when something comes together.
Ride safe-stay healthy,
Ron
