That was awesome! Jennifer and I had a blast meeting everyone. It was nice to put faces with names and such. I've got to hand it to the road marshals, they did a heck of a job keeping everything in order!

We need to do that again, under different circumstances.

Very well organized thanks to Arturo and Candy. Y'all did a fantastic job pacing the ride and leading us through the destinations!!

Also big thanks to all the riders who were on their best behavior and didn't act like out there. Everyone did a great job following directions and made the ride enjoyable considering the reason we were really riding for.

The crash site was very moving as you could still see the fluids where the bikes collided. You could tell that Jordan had a love for bikes because someone had left a Superbike magazine next to his memorial flowers. Roger's memorial was nice as it had a couple of picture of him smiling and enjoying life. There was even a cross there that we were able to write on to leave a small note.


On the way out from the site, we were actually escorted out by Fort Vend police just through one busy intersection. Big props for that. Thank for the AC at Fudruckers cuz today was hot as . Props to Will for getting a section marked off for us.

All in all great ride, great memories, and great people.

Thanks MH

Awesome ride. Thanks for organizing this and thanks to everyone that helped out.

The silence at the crash site was deafening. RIP, Roger.

The ride was good w/ good people. Thanks to the ride marshals they kept the cagers at bay while we passed thru.

We definitely made a statement with the amount of riders that attended.

I saw a few mishaps...one was the white Ford F150 near clipping me on 59 then almost running over a few MHr's. Someone lost a hat on 288 in the beginning. Then also on 59, 2 helmetless squids on bikes raced up the on ramp to catch up with the group then they blew on by when we were preparing to exit. Other than that, it was very uneventful which is a good thing.
