Renegade Toy Run 2008

11/22/2008

A short 80 mile ride today. The 6th annual Renegade Santa Claus Toy Run. I've been to every one. A perfect run for me to start riding again after my leg break. What I didn't realize is that my boot rubbed the scar on my ankle and it really hurt when I walked. But I made it through the day and had a great time.

Went to pick up Fonzi around 8:20 and Terry was supposed to have already been there. Terry finally called me and said his battery was dead. So we went to the ATM then over to Terry's.

 

Terry got his bike started and we took off for gas down Eastern Ave.

Got to Renegade and had plenty of time for breakfast. Hot link and a donut. This was actually my second donut since I forgot to take a pic of the first one. Besides, Roy told me to eat a donut for him.

 

Our bikes in the parking lot.

Mountain man arrived a bit late but everyone still got their pics with him. My bike next to a really decorated bike. I signed up to enter my bike in the best decorated bike contest. Little did I know, I got front row parking! However, I didn't go through with it because there were only 3 prizes and every other decorated bike there was more decorated than mine.

This guy is there every year and he entered the contest too. I didn't stand a chance in the contest.

This was lunch. Pretty good food this year. Chicken, pork, and tri-tip. I wanted to go back for seconds, but dessert got in the way.

 

Here's dessert. That's a Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Bar.

Lots of the same ol' vendors. Lots of the same ol' crap.

These two Beer Girls were nice enough to pose for this pic. The one on the left actually looks a bit like Paris Hilton. I gave the one on the right the website address.

Walking around, the guy that owns Renegade handed out these calendars. While we were eating, they tossed out a bunch of stuff too. I managed to get this handkerchief and lip balm.
