Well another Oley is in the books and it did not disappoint! I got out there Wednesday afternoon to begin the festivities. Thursday morning the rain came and it was incredible ...coming down in sheets for hours. By afternoon it cleared up and we salvaged the day.

My 46 FL was dubbed the "Demon Seed" due to the change in my demeanor when I was within 10 feet of it. I was told that it made me do bad things...I'll leave it at that...

There was the usual array of great bikes and people and the meet was the largest it's ever been! I'm telling you everything gels at Oley...The area, the location, the grounds, the people, the bikes, the proximity (walking distance) to the Fire House "Social Quarters" which gets real social on Friday nights, everything about this meet is great and makes it my favorite one of the year.

Panhead Rick and Richie Pan from Jersey showed up and Rick gave me a great painting he did of me on my Knuckle...Thanks Rick!

I got rid of some junk and picked up most of what I need to finish up my 41 FLTT. I have to thank Mike "Bolt On" for spying the 41 FL 3 speed shifter gate that I desperately needed and Pauly for pointing me in the direction of some very reasonably priced parts.

I have more to come on Oley 2011. I'll keep you posted...
