    Awww. Come on, Kevin.. Don't be a (circle) jerk..:lol3

    Anyway, I've said I was going to make it to the Hiawatha Rally for years, but something's always going on during the weekend and I don't make it.. Finally a couple years ago I made it to the Guzzi version (same location) and had a good time at the location..

    Last year I said I'd go, pre-registered and work got in the way, so I gave my pre-reg to Coopdaway.. Well, I'm pre-registering again this year, but the Helix rider is going to pay his own way, because I'm GOING!!!:clap

    And I think I'll do the Madison club's rally a few weeks before, for the first time in years, too.

    I'll be there:1drink

    Having missed the 2011 Hiawaha Rally due to work, I am going to have twice as much fun this year to make up for the missed rally.

    It's a terrible rally in a terrible location, and I have gone for 20 years just to see if it will improve!
    :lol3

    I have that Friday off already, I will be there.
    Now that I hear Paper is going to be there, and at the GRRR, I am staying home.
    :lol3

    Paper, if you go to Hiawatha, we have to invite Rock and Scissors, although I do not run with Scissors.

    I'm pre-registered for both GRRR and Hiawatha.. And I'm not giving my registration away to Coopdaway this year.. Sorry Doug!!:lol3

    I was kinda torn between GRRR and the IL Guzzi rally (which serves free beer and tons of food for almost the same price) but I haven't been to a Madison club rally in 15 years, and the first rally I ever went to was a GRRR at the old Jellystone location back in 1986.. I haven't been to a GRRR since they left Bagley, so it's time.. :clap

    And as I mentioned, I've had the Hiawatha on my calendar for over a decade (maybe 2?) and this year I'm GOING!!

    Hell, I might even ride a BMW!!:eek1

    A couple of my buddies do the IL Guzzi rally, but I soured on it when the campground person treated us like crap.
    Also, not being a beer drinker, going to that only saves me a bit on food.
    The Madison Club has also had beer at registration the last couple years, and they have a meal on Saturday.
    Plus, it's in Wisconsin in the Driftless area. Need I say more?
