    Many of you have told me how you and others have been near distraught at the delay in getting pix posted of the recently concluded Moto Grappa Tech & Tire Days, 2021 [abbreviated confusingly and saving only few letters as "MGTTD MMXXI."]

    OK, OK, maybe only person has, and he was being facetious. :giggle:

    Still, I felt obligated to get those out there. Besides, Kathi, freshly returned from Seattle, thinks “working” on the slideshow was simply yet another ploy to avoid knocking items off her “List," so I had to finish quickly. :makeup:

    A word for those who — rather understandably — see my slideshows as the pictorial equivalent of TLDR: don’t open the url. But, know that it could have been much worse; I started with 500+ photos, and now have “only” 155. :eek:

    The link opens in “landscape collage,” and captions appear when hovering your cursor over a pic. You can go to fullscreen and play the show or advance manually, but captions often “fall off” when doing that so it can be problematic. That said, if you have any interest in viewing the three brief (a few seconds long) videos, you have to go to fullscreen to see those.

    Enough “legals;” I can’t help it. ;)

    Here are the pix:

    Looks like a great event! I somehow missed my invite for this one, must be lost in the mail!

    Thats a brilliant set of pictures. Border opening, covid regulations and health issues permitting I would like to ride down (realising that I've rudely self-invited myself!) to one of those events sometime in the future. Thanks for the beautiful photos!

    Ha! Good catch.

    I am blaming one shot too many of grappa when I ordered those. Interestingly, only one other person caught that -- the wife of an attendee! :giggle: -- and, given the consumption of spirits here, no one will remember exactly when after a few months. ;)

    Ditto email.

    Now ... must go ride. The Cub Cadet. Acres and acres. :cry:

    OMG that looks like a wonderful time Bill!

    Do you do this every year and is it an open invitation or exclusively for invitees? I would love to do this next year very much.

    Thanks, Scott. It and previous iterations have been great fun.

    That said, while I do expect to continue those in some form, I am trying to to decide whether the next one will be "winter" tech version or a spring or fall one more focused on ring the grand roads that start right outside of my driveway.

    The "winter" versions are a great break from ... well, winter :giggle: ... and that has charm as a tonic for cabin fever. The more temperate ones speak for themselves. I was surprised at the work we actually did given the time, riding, and, candidly, beer and other adult beverages. ;)

    My point is that I usually give some notice to my usual suspects to save the proposed dates or object, but that is often only a couple of months out, if that.

    Lodging is a bit of an issue, as there is mostly only floor space available, but that seems to suit most folks.

    Anyway, consider yourself invited. To what will have to wait. :rofl:
