    I don't know where to put this so I will leave this information here.

    The Madison Englehart Indian Motorcycle dealership is hosting the Indian Demo Ride Truck Friday and Saturday July 22. Rides today are from 9-3 weather permitting. I went on my lunch break Friday and they had what seemed like 25 different bikes available for group led rides. It was a nice loop to Oregon and back taking highway and back roads.

    I went and rode a Scout 60 and a Chieftain Limited. I've never been a cruiser guy and I probably never will be. I will say that the Scout motor is great and Polaris needs to put that in a production sport bike or something like the HD Street Rod but that doesn't suck as bad as the Street Rood. After all it is the basis for their flat tracker and Project 156 bikes before they dumped Victory. The Chieftain was a total blah. The seat too thin and you roast your chestnuts on that air cooled engine. It's also really vibey at highway speeds despite the 6 speed. The Scout 60 was actually smoother.

    I'm glad you were able to check out the event travatron4000. I love free demo rides, better than buying something and discovering what it's like after purchase. The Scout 60 is also what I checked out and wished I had more time to check out a bigger Indian bike. In the end I didn't think the Scout 60 was for me. Also not sure how they can charge so much money for the entire Indian line.

    Anyone going to Central ADV next weekend? 11-13th? I'm working hard to get the "new" bike ready, but haven't reserved a campsite yet.

    Cool! I wish I was there now... I'll keep you posted, I'm working on a buddy of mine who's picking up a WR250R on Wednesday to get it out and have some fun.

    @Oddball Do you think you have room for a bike and tent on Sat night? It would be much appreciated!

    Garage night Wed 8/30

    Come over to my place on the east side. Watch me try to organize my work bench. Also it's my birthday! You probably know the way. If not PM me. If I'm feeling fancy I'll get the grill going.

    Happy to see regular Madison Garage Nights. Rich on the east side is hosting again tonight, I presume around 7:00. PM me or preferably travatron4000 for the address if you don't have it.

    Garage night Wed 10-4

    Madison, east side
    10-4 good buddy, put that hammer down and keep on truckin' over to my place for garage night. Inspired by Rich's conflagration I'll get a fire going for some autumn flavor. I'm out of treated lumber though so it'll have to be seasoned hardwood.

    Garage night Wed 11-8
    At the Moth Cave (John Saporta's) West side, near M and PD (PM for address). It's supposed to be clear and cool. The heat will be on in the garage. Bring a winter warmer to take the edge off. John's got 5 halves of Yami XT550 to get together into at least 1 solid runner. Come help or just hang.
