Can I come too

I'm spending a lot of time on the computer, and I came across this thread. Twisted my knee pretty good yesterday. Mississippi river muck can be pretty slippery on pavement. It's nice to have a bike that can get scratched. I want to come too, So I joined advider. Last year I went to a rally in Huntersville, MN. There wasn't really any dual sport bikes but they had a great route planned out, about 120 miles. I just didn't like riding alone. With me, I never no what kind of trouble... I guess there will be some directions on where to meet up later.

Hi Everyone,
I'm still planning on being in Little Marais May 20-24th. If anyone is around, send me a PM and I'll give you directions to the land. I'd love to have some inmates feedback before the June Shindig. Unfortunately, I won't have a bike, but it sounds like you guys are preparing some good routes!

Looking forward to it!
Jesse

I'm leaving Friday from Saint Paul

I plan on leaving friday from Saint Paul. My schedule is pretty flexible when it comes to riding. I can, but I don't know if it is a good idea to ride my bike to Duluth. I don't want to break something simple, like my heated grips, and not have a way home. I would like to carpool up there. I can drive or ride, split the cost of gas two, three, or four ways. That back to the 50's thing, about a mile from my house. I think I'd rather escape the crowds. no offense.

Count me in! It will be great to get up to that part of the state.

I ride a BMW K100 so I will probably play the pussy card and stick to black top. I would love to ride up on the gunflint trail just to check it out and up to the border if anyone else wants to go.

And I'll be more than happy to help out with breakfast and supper. My schedule is pretty flexible so I plan on being there Thursday night or Friday around noon. I'll bring some beer for Friday night as part of the welcoming committee.

Hope you are enjoying your time on your land and being back in the area. I was hoping to cruise up but the weather didn't cooperate. See you in June.

Update 05/27/2011

Hi Guys,
I wanted to drop a note and give everyone an update. I'm really looking forward to meeting all of you next month. I'm still planning on riding from San Francisco to Minnesota June 10-15th. That way I'll have a couple days to get ready for the Shindig!

As you may recall, my motto for this get-together is if you expect nothing, then you won't be disappointed. But with your support, hopefully we can build upon this each year!

Friday Night:
I'm going to bring a big charcoal grill and cook brats and burgers for everyone. I'll also have plenty of fresh water for the weekend. As far as beer, it's BYOB.

Saturday Morning: Following the KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) principle, I'm thinking pancakes, coffee and/or bacon, egg and cheese.

Saturday Lunch:
You are on your own!

Saturday Evening: If MNRider2 is still willing, we'll have his stew Saturday night along with whatever is left over. Maybe some of you can find some smoke salmon sometime during your daily ride and share it with the rest of us.
Sunday morning: Pancakes/coffee.

Firewood: I'm trying to scrouge as much firewood as I can for a bondfire each night. If any of you locals have a "fire wood guy" I'll take whatever I can get!

KYBO/Port-o-potties
: I'm planning on having at least 1 port-o-john available throughout the weekend. Let's face it, when nature calls, sometimes it's nice to be out of nature.

That's about it! If anyone wants to volunteer for meals or whatever, please feel free. I'm also eager to hear about route suggestions from those of you who know the area better than I.
