As usual, the riders left early to beat the heat and the winds.
I found these two protecting the American Legion Hall, Pittsburg, KS. The gorilla is the mascot for Pittburg (KS) University and you can find them all around the town.
My bike looks really small next to the M60 tank at the American Legion
While Rich was shopping for adult libations for the group, he met the owner and his wife of the store who were kind enough to invite all 17 of us over to their house for dinner. He served world famous Barto's Chicken, German Potato Salad and slaw. It turns out he collects guitars and he gave us a private concert. It was very nice.
