He runs it, and has been doing it for the past 17 years, it started with a friend of his. But Bill went down in early August passed out from dehydration. He had full gear on which saved him busted ribs, hand and aggravated his old back injury.

Makes sense. I hope he's recovering well.

If you get any info about whether the event is off this year, please post it here along with any info you might get on Bill's condition.

Thanks!

Well I got an email a couple days ago the Swan Ride is ON. They pretty much always go. If it ain't raining I'll be going. Cuz riding in the rain ain't, 'specially if it is only 35 out. I think this year I am going to try to get some heated gloves. I'll be on the black classic LT with whitewalls. I think last year I saw RonMold, but was never able to chat. Lots of bikes. And you know we all look alike (invisible to cars)
