A mere 11 days until Walt Ride 2013

The routes are planned; the days are set and it's simply a matter of time before the kickstands go up. This will be the largest Walt Ride to date with 15 riders thus far representing damn near every make of bike with the exception of the one made in Milwaukee, and we are fine by that, all righty. This is sport touring event, after all. Rumors are flying about a gathering at Bill's the night before we leave, for those interested. Hmmmmmm. Has possibilities.
