    Alan, it looks like it could conquer the world! Great job!

    BTW, where did you get the rack mounted to the back of the sidecar. I'd like to find something similar to mount to my Squire.

    Only three days to go, hack is serviced, and the weather looks like it'll hold out good for us!

    Amongst other things, I changed the alternator belt on the motorbike last night .... don't get to say that too often! :lol3

    Wishing everyone attending CSR4 a great weekend. We unfortunately won't be able to make it this year.... so it will be interesting to see who rides the farthest and takes home the "Iron Butt". We got smart last year and left the seat in Chelan.
    Have fun and post lots of photos! We will live vicariously through the posts.

    I believe some of you talked about taking HWY 2 over to Chelan Thursday morning. What time are you thinking about? We might want to join you if not too early. It will take us 1 1/2 to 2 hours to get to Monroe, depending on traffic. We will be riding from Spanaway area (near Puyallup)

    We might just travel that way anyway and maybe catch up with you.

    Hooked up the sidecar brake for the first time and bled it last night. I plan on passing thru Monroe sometime before noon. I'm very excited to finally being able to make the Rally. :clap

    Hey Guys! Sorry for the late notice but because I got the flu I failed to get the rig ready in time. In fact, I'm just now back on my feet.

    Found out this morning that my fully paid for campsite reservation is past the refund date. Anybody want it for free?

    Arriving:Thu 17-May-12 after 2:30 PM
    Departing: Sun 20-May-12 before 1:00 PM
    Campsite Site: 113--on the west loop but on the side toward the fairgrounds

    LINK TO CHELAN STATE PARK INFO PAGE

    PM me with "I'll take it!" and your e-mail address. I'll e-mail you the confirmation letter.
