Defective Gene Pool Gathering 2023
February 18, 2023
The Defectives gathered for the unofficial start of the 2023 riding season at Big Ray’s Bar-B-Que in Allen, TX. The weather was chilly but dry, in spite of the fact that Kenneth Andrews showed up.
After a fair amount of socializing and tire-kicking, the group moved inside to enjoy Big Ray’s Texas cooking.
Cliff Wall and Bill Thweatt began the awards presentation with the longest ride determination. Bill presented several items including The Book of Useless Information to Larry Telling for his ride from Michigan to Jacksonville to Texas.
David Uhl was inducted to the DGP Hall of Fame for his Iron Butt Rally and Hoka Hey finishes as well as his unending dedication to long-distance riding. David was not in attendance while currently recovering from an accident.
Kenneth Andrews was inducted to the Hall of Fame for his IBR and Hoka Hey finishes, riding 100,000 miles in a year, and his uncanny ability to predict rain. Many riders use Ken’s current position as an area to avoid riding… (today was an exception)
I always look forward to seeing my long-distance friends!
