Sunday, April 8th. One Day, 500 miles, 12+ hours.... it is NOT AWESOME! Do not show up at 5:00am, do not pack extra cloths, snacks, water and cash, do not come expecting an amazing route through unknown territory, do not come for the socialization with motorcycle enthused, friendly people. I'll not be going to bed early and will not be tossing and turning with excitement and anticipation for the event I'll not be joining.
This is not in anyway, reverse psychology.
