Yeah.. looks like the moto-gods are subtly forcing me to ride my bike to this event

Sooooo who knows if I will make it. I am still reallllllllly short on funding too, transitioning to new job, having car stolen, (and all my tools, too) and.. well. shit its been a rough year this year

But, I will still try to make it!

Going to try to make it fer sure ... just need to figure out what to bring. The F800GS? The sidecar? Of course, the logical choice would be the 4 wheel drive with a bed and a furnace, but logic was never my strong suit.

Figuring it'll be the sidecar, though I am nervous after it's poor performance in the snow last year. Y'all going to help push me out when I get stuck?

BYOS...


After a suitable amount of pointing and laughing, I'm sure you'll get some help though...

Was up there last weekend. Plenty of snow in the hills above it but just a dusting at that level. Maybe with the weather changes there will be some snow.

Still nursing a broke leg but maybe I can stop by and meet some people Saturday. If anyone needs anything while they are there or something breaks I've got tools and garage space about 30 mins away.

I guess that's kinda' like the misconception of "How hard is it to remove the sidecar and just ride the bike?"

I like riding two wheels too - but when I'm so old I can't pilot the hack anymore < --- > I guess I'll have to limit my riding to just motorcycles...
