Twas a great day for a Gonzo event - rainy, thunder, cold (the usual....)
4 brave soles met at Timmies in Fall River at 8:00a.m. to do the
traditional cycle to the Irving Big Stop in Enfield for brekkie. (Doesn't
every Gonzo event include food?)
Geezer, Dipper, 1K to Go and myself were the only ones to trek this day
and after we had our ceremonial coffee at Tim's we set out for our
adventure. Well....at least we thought we were ready to go, when Geezer
pipes up to us 3 guys, on our steeds revving our engines, in a panic
looking for his helmet.
You guessed it, it was on his head. It was going to be an interesting
Off we went with Dipper & 1K to Go leading the way and Geezer & I
following. This was my first Gonzo bike ride, so I was not as peppy as the
old farts (whoops, I meant not as peppy as the other "experienced"
The trip out to the Big Stop and back, was pretty uneventful though the
weather was somewhat challenging and me thinks the shivering 1K to Go was
showing, at our post-cycle Timmies, was the beginning of his cold this
week. Gesundt heit!
We enjoyed a large breakfast at the big stop with most everyone starring
at these 4 wet guys in tights. (Why look? We're normal, right?) Geezer
provided the biggest laugh of the day with his helmet missing, and somehow
he came out of the day with a new trail-name that I'm sworn to secrecy not
to divulge. All I'll say is it 'taint complimentary.
I'll let your minds wander...
Thanks guys - great trip & let's have fun this weekend in Maine!
