Slimy Crud Run May 4th 2014

Another Slimy Crud Run has come and gone and the only thing I got from it was a couple of pictures and a sore ass.

We left the house around 7:30 am. Originally it was planned to be my two nephews CJ and Doug and my brother Eric. Eric had to bail because his neck was acting up, it is an injury from a car accident.

The plan was to meet up in a town south of me and north of him. Even though he wasn't coming I decided to head down to the meeting spot anyways just because I had already created the map and didn't feel like redoing it.

It was cool out but not what I would consider cold. Maybe in the low forty's. I rode the Concours just because it is better suited for the colder weather with the large wind screen and the nice heated grips. We jumped on the freeway and headed to the meeting spot, it was the only freeway riding I had planned for. Once off the freeway we got to enjoy some nice twisties and all back roads. Over all the entire ride was pretty uneventful. I didn't have my GoPro because while I had charged it, I somehow turned the backpack on and it completely killed the backpack battery and half the GoPro's battery.

We arrived at the first town at 10:00 am and it was already packed with bikes.

The trailer is for his dog

Once of my favorite bikes

They actually rode this bike to the meet and to the next town

I have no idea what this is but it looks fun

KZ1000 Police Motorcycle had "Ponch" on the front fender like a CHiPs bike although I don't believe they had the full front fairing in the tv show.

The most people I've ever seen at the Slimy Crud

Fair weather brings out all riders

Parking wasn't everyone's strong suit

After an hour or so we made our way to the next town.

The only reason I go to the Slimy Crud Run is for the A&W on the ride home.
