    Jeff,

    I'd be interested in a gathering at your place. I'd be happy to do a pot luck dish. Venison? Brunswick stew in a crock pot and corn bread? Now that hunting season is over I need to start thinking bikes again.

    Karl, we would love to see you again. It has been a long while.

    Anything you bring would be wonderful. Venison stew, Brunswick stew, no matter. I'm sure it has been a while since most of us tasted any venison. :D

    Jeff,
    Put me on the in list for the showing. Saturday is normally date night, but got a pass for this one. I'd be glad to bring some suds or anything else that is needed.

    :ear I may go to the bike show tomorrow and return after dinner. I don't really have a reason to stay overnight unless a few of us get together for a some mojitos and sangria. I can't go Sunday as the weatherman said that it FINALLY may be nice enough to go to the track.
    Anybody need anything from Morton's? If I go, I'll make a stop there and will he happy to pick up anything you need (No new R1200GS!) Unfortunately, all of my plans are up in the air as my best friend's dad is hours to days from passing.

    So, If I had you pick me up a s1000RR, we'd be fine and I could pay you back later?:evil

    I'm not feeling the draw to the bike show this year. Both my bikes are paid for and I don't need to drool over any new ones. From what your saying about your friends dad and wanting to go to the track tomorrow, I'm not really sure why you are trying to go.

    I am planning to Metro in from Springfield. But what about pay to park a car off street and the parking garages around the convention center?

    There are several garages close by but they are not cheap...usually $30-35 for the first 24 hours.

    Attention Andrew! This was posted by Bill Conger on the Sandblast Rally thread...A mere $100!

    "Who would be interested in a rally riding clinic on Thursday prior to the rally? Riding tips, terrain reading tips, time keeping strategies and practice, practice, practice. Cost would be around $100 for the day. PM if interested."

    Free parking at Huntington. I am going to try and hit Morton's on the way home. They have a used jacket that would fit my son. Plus drool on the 800GS Adv.

    It is a good day to cage to a motorcycle show. :freaky

    Taking apart the little bike for some maintenance. It was a little dirty in places.

    Almost ready to pull the swingarm. Going to lube all the bearings and replace the chain. I also need to get a new chain slider.

    Hey Jeff sign me up!

    I'll throw together a pot of chili to help feed everyone. I might even be able to talk the wife into coming along.
