We're back! Thunder Beach was a great rally and while the numbers are down from the spring rally there was still a large turnout for this event. The weather was almost perfect, plenty of sunshine but damn it was HOT!

I want to thank everyone who stopped by to see to us and have their seats worked on. We had a great turn out and actually started running out of supplies late Saturday and it was a good thing that was our last day of operations.

One thing I really like about this event is it is billed as the most biker friendly event in the world and I have to agree with them. They really make you feel welcomed in Panama City Beach while you are there. Everyone is just as freindly as they can be. This was my second trip down to PCB for one of their rallies and it just a nice place all the way around. White sand beaches, clear gulf waters and plenty of sunshine.

Brent and I both tried to stay on top of the emails coming while at Thunder Beach. I got a little behind but I am caught back up now. If you sent a email and didn't get a reply most likely your spam filter caught it or your email bounced, I had a few bounce on me so make sure you enter your email address correctly.

Thunder Beach was our last rally for this year. We may hit a few local small events but that will do it for the 2009 tour. I am currently working on getting events lined up for next year. Probably sometime in December we will update the events page with our 2010 tour dates and locations. There is a lot of work that goes into setting up and working these events are not cheap by any means. Our three largest cost to set up at a rally is the spot for your hauler which is usually our largest expense, the event organizers almost make it unprofitable for us to go and we take a big chance because if it rains everyday of the event then we are going to be in big trouble. Next would be lodging, the hotels as you know jack up their rates when they know we are coming to town or at least most do and then the third biggest cost is fuel. Just for the Sturgis rally our fuel cost was over $3000...OUCH! That really puts a lot of overhead on a trip but getting our name out there and letting people see us and see our work first hand usually seals the deal for them and they are a MCC customer.

Thats going to wrap up this weeks update. Thanks again to everyone who stopped by to see us at Thunder Beach, we had a great time meeting everyone and we look forward to seeing you guys again at the spring rally in 2010.

Till next time be safe and enjoy the ride.
