    Probably not. Annie leaves tomorrow for Ohio to tend to her mother. No way of knowing how long that will last.

    Might be awhile.
    Spent the last 35 years riding west of the Mississippi.
    Going to try for upstate New York this run.

    Just for you........ I will roll to the west side The Big Muddy when we visit KnewOOlyns.
    Will we see you and Anne in BHam?

    Try and check out Baxter Cycle in Marne, Iowa.
    About 100 miles south of Paullina.
    South of Interstate 80 at exit 51.
    You can thank me later.
    Worth a bit of back track/route change.
    The place will make your head spin.
    Wear your Norton shirt!
    Just sayin'

    If you are anywhere near NW Arkansas the first three weeks of October, give me a shout. I'll be down there working on my retirement compound.

    Mud .... PM me an approximate location of the compound and your contact cell number.
    We plan to head toward St. Louis after Barber.
    Might just be able to drop in for a cool beverage.
    Are you level enough to set up 3 tents???

    110 acres, I'm sure we can find a spot for you. They are standing my 40x60 shop today, so it will be up,by then as well. Just use my cell number you have. The town (wide spot in the road) we are nearest is Summers, AR. Our place is off Old Cincinnati Rd.

    Red-eye to Portland/Orlando.
    RLee from Southern Comfort will provide transport to the compound.
    A few days to unpickle the bikes and west to KnewOLynns.

    IMG_1127.JPG Wrong sector Sparky!
    Made it to SComfort.
    12 hrs in the tin tube with one of those a break in Portlandia.
    Hot and humid.
    FLNBRK is a no start.
    Reinforcements procured for immediate pre-flight testing ASAP.
    Side-stand mod a very tough ordeal without a spring hook!
    Had a couple of my best guys on it for WAY too long. I think they milked it.

    Max is on final approach with his communication electrics.
