Thanks to everyone who organised and executed this event. It was great fun as usual and the time went by so fast. I got the exact room number I requested and everything went well. Looking forward to next year and hoping for a little warmer weather :)

You have a favorite hotel room?
Yes. In that Ramada, which is more of a motel, I like the rooms across the back and 132-136 are in the middle of the back, making 134 my favourite.

  • No steps
  • Easy access to bike wash area, just like watching the Harley guys wash their bikes
  • No freeway noise
  • Easy access to the bar and restaurant
  • Easy access to the ice machine, if the fridge is taking too long to chill the beer
  • Park right in front of my room
  • Solid wifi

I agree. It was my first, and I had a great time. My room was just above yours. John, we ogled over your finely crafted farkles on Friday. There were so many bikes and folks to learn from!

I chose the Grand Tour 1000 on Thursday, and it turned out to be a great ride on a great day.

What a great way to meet some new friends and have a great time. I'll certainly be back!

There is a commercial on SirusXM featuring "Big Lew", so funny. XM Big Lew sells life insurance to old, fat men, e.g. me.

JAX is a great event for moto porn. I always learn something about where to put what from this event. In the past, Ms Landry has encouraged riders to leave the covers off and put a build-sheet (of sorts) on the moto but not this year.
