I received an email from Joe Sokohl Monday bearing the sad news that Tom
Farley has passed away. Tom was a regular at our rallies & rode up
from Richmond to join us for a Guzzi lunch occasionally. The last was at
Guseppe's in Nellysford 10/2019. Joe says that he & Tom have
ridden together for more than 15 years. He has posted an album of
My thought for the January 2021 meet was to have the lunch at Glen
Maury Park in the small pavilion just behind & above the big one we
used for our rallies. We'd have had the option of getting carry-out HOT
food from one of the restaurants, and the pavilion is sheltered from the
wind much better than the double-decker. But, I've been watching the
weatherguess for Buena Vista for several days now, it has not improved.
Precipitation is in the guess for Friday night into Saturday morning,
with the temp dropping just below freezing in the early morning hours.
Followed by a high temp of 42 late Saturday afternoon. It looks like Old
Man Winter aims to balance out the nice days we had in the fall w/some
of his misery. Most of us have to ride over the mountain ridge to get
to Buena Vista, he's making that ride dangerous, & eating lunch is
hard when your teeth are chattering. So, We'll pass on meeting for
lunch this month. Hopefully we'll get a break in February.
Y'all stay safe & healthy,
