Honda Homecoming 2002 (July 25-27, 2002)

Each year Honda of America puts on the Honda Homecoming.  The motorcycle assembly plant located in Marysville, OH and the engine plant located in Bellefontaine, OH offer 3 days of fun, food and plenty of vendors to turn that ordinary ride in to the extraordinary one.  This was out first year at the event, and boy did we have fun.
