    BTDT!
    Going from Cleveland to Sacramento, I got caught in some of that mess a few years ago. Sat in hot traffic in my leathers... was on a sweaty FJR, it was one of those over 100F days.
    All for at humougous toll of... 50 cents!
    I did detour on my way back... seems you have to go abut 100 miles around Chitown to miss it!

    Good luck and we all pray there is a just God!
    Ore even just a God to take pity on us and deal with the politicians! :eek1

    PS..Just ride on the center line and the camera should miss your plate... at least that what I was told works down here in Dallas! Not that any bikers (or cagers) would intentionally try and avoid a toll!:rofl

    Wish there was a presentation/rally in NY. NH is too far for me to ride up w/out being able to get off work.

    Great report Mr. Cob!

    Wanted to be at Terry's to see you on saturday but a car took out my GS and my right tib/fib last week so I will just have to read about it like everyone else (unless you want to swing back by Terry's in about 12wks, should be walking by then :rofl). Terrys a great guy and will take good care of you, sorry to hear about your room and board problem.

    I'm in Westchester County, a bit north of Manhattan so it might be a little less... (adding to the reasons why I should go). 2 questions: What is the date of the rally again? And where exactly. Is it where you are in Manchester?
    If I can get coverage for work and do the 10k service in time, I'm there.

    OK, YES, you should join us. I'll flip you over to Soviet Steeds for the info. No, not at my shop. But not far away, either.

    Mr. Cob,

    I read your last RR in it's entirey and plan on doing the same with this one. Just wanted to say thanks, the reports are amazing and have a fantastic and safe journey! :clap

    Also, if you'd care to answer a question, you said that you give presentations at the Ural dealerships. What sort of things do you present?
