Well, it was a long night on the bike to get to Indy, but I am glad I did. Thankfully, when I arrived at about 3 am (several stops to stretch and avoid fatigue), my good friends Charlie and Wilma Williams left the light on for me. Very gracious of them to open their house to me and Charlie is not a half bad breakfast chef either. After the previous night on the hard old ground in a tent, I slept like a log.
Charlie, writer of all things motorcycle, entrepreneur, and known by everyone (including the Pope ;) ) had set up a meeting for me with folks with DIRT (Discover Indiana Riding Trails) and, as it turned out, some of the leaders from ABATE of Indiana. In the picture adjacent, Roy Garrett (w/ABATE of Indiana), Rick Dorfmeyer (w/Tucker Rocky), Charlie Williams, yours truly, Gary Williams (Operations Director with ABATE of Indiana), and Al Pivonka (President of DIRT.)
