I expect you'll be there to witness it. From time to time.

Can tell you what I felt like picking up that 900 lb led sled I used to ride. Felt like a couple of Hydrocodone and a glass of red.

I've got a utility trailer set up for hauling bikes if you have something to pull it with. If you rent a pickup with a receiver type hitch, I also have a easy to use hitch hauler. MotoJack Rack. Hydraulic platform that lifts the bike from the frame. Just let me know.

Thanks Rusty! Big Kevin just agreed to drive me up so I can ride it home. Should be fun on IH-35, eh?

Since it's just 250cc that will make it an Adventure Ride, right?
