I don't really understand the "flag tour" thing; but, happy that you had a chance to relax and do something you enjoyed. I'm sure that the funds raised will be put to good use.

Update at the end of the post

Cop Car

Not bad, Bogie. I did a back-of-the-envelope calculation (Estimations: roughly 6,000 miles, covered by an average of 2 Harleys, getting an average of 45 miles/gallon of gasoline, at an average price of $1.25/gallon - no food/lodging costs incurred above normal) to come up with an approximate fuel cost of $333. That means that the cost of getting the donations was under 10% of the amount of the donations.

Don't know how much the fun/feelings of accomplishment were worth to the riders; but, there were obviously a lot of people who got something out of it. Goodness knows there are military veterans/members who will benefit from the money!

Your calculations stump me.

The amount shown was from what was raised at our dealer location only. We had somewhere around 15 bikes and traveled maybe 100 miles to the next dealer.

Aha! I did not know that. Thanks for correcting my understanding. (Back to the old envelope - lol.)
