Happy 4th of July!

I just got back from a night on the town in Boston. We saw the dress rehearsal for tomorrow night’s big event (it was still pretty crowded, but not nearly as crowded as tomorrow night will be). The Boston Pops played and Neil Diamond sang a few songs. And then we walked around the city for several hours. I’m going to try to catch the fireworks tomorrow from a friend’s roof. (And I got a couple hours in on my bike this morning).
What do y’all have planned for the fourth?July 4, 2009 at 1:54 pm #20413MunchParticipant
Since it’s the first time in 7 years we are not having to work on the 4th. I aint doin jack. Gonna ride the bike into town and grab some grub but that’s about it.July 4, 2009 at 9:44 pm #20415eonParticipant
I am at home, hiding from the heat and the sun
Went on a 300 mile ride yesterday round Mt Rainier in 95′ heat and I thought I would pass out at one stage. I know that is not too hot for some of you but for me it is damn hot. Having a FF helmet that does not vent very well does not help, having leather gloves with no vents also sucked. Might head out to the BMW dealership to see if they have the Rev’It gloves I liked the looks off. I wonder if they are open today?

I spent the 4th with my family on the lake in Oklahoma. We had drenching rain all morning, but it cleared up by 1pm so we had a nice afternoon for fireworks on the beach. Family, Food, and Fireworks- what else could you ask for on the 4th?
Then my mom and I went to Eureka Springs, AR for a few days. The day we got there, I think that there must have been an MC club in town or something. There were probably 200 or so motorcycles cruising the historic district the first evening and then they were all gone the next day.
Hope everyone else had a great time!July 16, 2009 at 3:24 am #20659okcponyParticipant
If the lake you were at was like the one we were at (Lake Murray) it was absolutely overrun with people. Even the lake water was lukewarm from the recent high temps, so that’s not too refreshing. A friend told me that Eureka Springs always draws a lot of bikes since it’s really pretty and mountainous there. Maybe someday….July 19, 2009 at 4:36 am #20746owlieParticipant
Eureka Springs was definitely one of the most biker friendly places I think I’ve seen.
As for the lake, we were on Hudson. It did get a little busy after the rain stopped, but the morning storm kept most of the traffic down. In all honestly, my family spends so much time on the lake, that come holidays, we tend to just stay off it. Too many crazies…
