Here is the 411.

Looking at the 7 day for weather it might still be a little cold to be riding the GS to Burlington. Not for me for the boss who makes the rules in this house!

If it's too cold out we will most likely head to Nebraska to visit Grandma. If it's going to be warm out we will head to Burlington Thursday morning, stay a few nights, and then meet everyone Saturday morning.

Since the diner has a small parking lot, I was thinking of heading out to Riverside OHV area. They have picnic tables under a shelter, that we could pull together and that could be the stand for the wheel balancer. Then when GG has her knobbies on her bike she could take it for a quick spin in the OHV park. If you have extra innertubes it might be wise to bring them. You never know about a pinch flat.

I will post here if the weather is going to be bad and we go to Lincoln NE.

Global Girl please tell me your axle nut size, that way I know what size to bring with me. I don't know if your OEM tool kit is worth a hoot or not.

I am also known as "Austin", in real-world circles

Hey KTM (I don't remember your name either ), go ahead and post pics of that bike, if I'm going to try to do something stupid, I should at least be informed.

Hi All,
I don't check the regional forums much for some reason.
I'm in up in the Okoboji area.

Hey guys, it was great hanging out and sharing some stories of the roads, trails and cops... OK, maybe I should have spoke up sooner when you started on the cop stories but it was fun...

I was talking to Chris and we would like to make this atleast a monthly gathering. Grab a breakfast and ride out from there... I turned the wrenches on my KTM 640 Adventure and have it up and running. Looking forward to enjoying some rides with you all.

Yes... I have my Ducati pictures...I'll get them posted but they are on my work computer so I'll try to get them posted tomorrow during lunch.

How about you just PM them to me... I locked up the motor on the Magna yesterday, and suddenly I am much more serious about that bike

I had the phone near me incase you called to ride Chris. I ended up catching the crud that my wife had and felt like crap all freakin' day. Stuff even feels worse today. May not even go into work today.

I kept hearing bikes go by my place and it made me

I went to Amana and farther west to Marenngo, Blairstown, Norway, etc. I got tired, I need to get into better shape for real rides.

Nice to meet everyone

If it ran I would have been on it Saturday. Waiting on parts to get it running. Hope they are at home now and I am lucky enough tonight to get it fired up.
