Natasha, thanks again for your help with the charity ride. My two weeks have been FULL with it (my current excuse for lack of posting on TWF). The pics are located here:

We raised more than 8k to help these families out. I couldn't have done it without your guidance. Thank you again!

Thanks guys.

There were many moments that day when my heart felt full and overwhelmed. One such moment was when it was pouring, people were still filing in, standing in line to register about 20 yards long and about 4 people deep without umbrellas. I overheard one man say, "If these guys can run into a burning building for us, we can ride in the rain for them." And they did. I've never been prouder to belong to the society of motorcycle riders as I was Sunday.

That's just awesome.... How many riders did you end up having?
