Waking up to another perfect day in the Alice was awesome. The only issue is I packed for Alice to be hot as hell but in the last week the temperature has dropped from high 30's to high teens and low 20's!

This is such a pinnacle event on the HOG calendar. It's almost our home away from home, you might say. May of our members, including me, have been riding here for years and we are yet to have a bad time. There's nothing better than an old country pub and this one is one of the best.
