Sorry, no can do. We have bad weather here, snow on the ground and the pass is terrible. Unless you think it will warm up to the 70's and dry out by then?

Olympia Toy Run Overview The Olympia Toy Run brings motorcyclists together for a very worthy purpose: the joy of a child receiving a gift at Christmas. All the toys and money are donated to The Salvation Army for distribution to needy kids through its Toy n' Joy Shop. Strapped to bikes four abreast in row after row are lots and lots of brand new children's toys. Gleaming bikes sport different names and badges and colors and their riders range from all-season diehards to weekend enthusiasts. For this day, we are one sister/brotherhood of riders thinking of the smiles our toys will bring to kids' faces.
The roaring thrum of thousands of motorcycle engines fills the crisp December air. But this is not a day just for motorcyclists as tens of thousands of spectators line the parade route, excitedly waving, calling and whistling to the riders. Both directions of the street are closed to all but motorcyclists, yet drivers on side streets honk and wave. Though riders come from all over to participate in this event, it's a day to be proud of Olympia, the fellowship that brings us together and the goal we accomplish. It's thrilling, breathtaking, moving...and downright fun.
We hope you'll join us in helping bring smiles to children's faces at Christmas. In the meantime, we wish you safe and happy motoring!

Surgery was good- Doc sentenced me to 1 extra week of couch time cause I ripped my incision open. But that is in the past. Ya Gary asked to use my bike for testing his goodies.... we will see how the dyno goes I might just have him leave them on!

Besides, it gets hooked up to the dyno on Tuesday or wednesday depending on availability. The winter blast last week stopped all motorcycle transporting so it sat, but kept dry!!!!!!;)

I'll be leaving here by 9am, gonna drop by my church to pick up a handful of riders and head on down. The Suzuki Owners Club will be gathering there as well. Gonna be a lot of bikes because there is no rain in sight.....even with it getting to a balmy 41 degrees by the time we are heading back. Just don't be caught after dark as ice could form on your handlebars!!!!:p
