    I'm putting this on my calendar.

    Last year I stumbled upon this gathering on my way home from a trip around Lake Michigan. It looks to be a great gathering in a beautiful area of the country that I enjoy riding.

    Just show up and sneek into the grub line. They're used to that sort of thing. Don't forget to nab some prime test ride spots too.

    I'm sorry, but day passes are not available. Please ask your parole officer for a weekend pass.

    In any case, you have been to this rally before. You have "been there, done that". No need for you to show up again.

    I have to ask for permission, but this may be doable. Unless Grainbelt is going. Although Stuart almost cancels him out.
    Damn this stuff is hard.

    In! (maybe)

    I am going to go all scissors on yer ass!
    It really depends where my wife's mental state is this summer, things have been rough with our daughter lately.
    I am working on that.
    I really want to be there, but I may end up riding out Saturday. I do not know yet.

    Let's not get too hasty here.:lol3
    I asked for that Friday off just in case.
    We should rider together, that is if a Helix, Triumph, BMW, KLR,,GUZZIrider doesn't mind being seen with me.
