Agreed, it was a good day. Weather was perfect, we had at least 25 bikes all together and simply a good ride with good people. I liked this group at first because they make it clear they don't do bar hopping and prohibit drinking during rides. There are a lot of veterans in the group but that's not the focus. Today was focused on veterans because of the purpose of this ride. It was to raise funds for the Quilts of Honor which is a small organization that makes quilts for veterans that fit certain criteria of having diagnosed PTSD, a purple heart, traumatic brain injury, multiple tours in country or their affected by agent orange. So, the ride was great, I tried a new app which is supposed to track the route we took and it did good but I forgot to take pictures at most of the stops. Pat took some good ones so imagine those interspersed in this little video: The video starts where I fueled up to start the ride, met Pat at Starbucks in Stockton, went to the Yamaha dealer in Modesto and then started the ride with kick stands up at 10 AM. I ended the tracking at the Stockton Yamaha dealer where we had the festivities.

The raffle and poker hands were a surprise. I won 50 bucks with the worst hand! Having a lousy hand is normal for me but I've never won cash for that reason before. Then, for the raffle, I won a pair of riding boots that I gave to Mike, my brother-in-law (his size) and then also won a dart game with magnetic darts. It was fun. They fed us and we all made some new friends. Here are the pics I did take:
