"The Mild Hogs motorcycle group was formalized in 2007 with our first cross country trip. We had members traveling from the east
coast to the Northeast then westward to the Grand Canyon. The group was comprised of high-school buddies who hadn't seen each
other for several decades and brothers that had grown up and found that hundreds of miles now separated them. Some of the riders
had been riding for decades, while one member had only a few months in the saddle. The trip had its adventures and setbacks
starting with a flat tire, electrical failures and ending up with a couple of the bikes riding in the back of a U-haul truck. Despite some of
the pitfalls of the trip it was an adventure enjoyed by all and prompted the continuation of yearly cross-country trips."
