    Talk about a close one! My wife booked a trip prior to the release dates of this years Rubber Chicken which would of made for some heated discussion. I'm in to make it my 5th out of the 6 gatherings. To anyone who has never attended your missing out on GREAT riding, scenery, considerate riders, and well organized event.

    I don't know if I can stay gone from the 27th to the 293rd :lol3

    I've been waiting for my dates to firm up on a trip to Japan - that's happening Oct 13-22 so I should be good to go.
    Hope the weather is good for riding down this year, I don't want to throw the big bike in the back of the truck.

    The shirt design is complete. We will be providing "performance" shirts again this year rather than a simple T-shirt. These shirts make great riding shirts and the design is always a great conversation starter...."What the heck is the Rubber Chicken Ride?"

    We will be placing the order on Sept 28th. We will only be providing shirts to those riders who have registered by that date. Don't miss out!

    Latitude 33 is again on board to serve their DELICIOUS cuisine for our Saturday evening meal. Riders raved about it last year so we clearly had to bring them back for 2017.

    Pre-riding the routes will start soon and we will be looking to add a couple more"new" loops again this year. We also intend to "pre-ride" the brewery that has finally opened its doors in downtown T or C...within easy walking distance of all accommodations in the historic downtown area.

    Yeah, we are getting excited!

    I just scored a gig at the brewery for the Friday night. They should be serving their own beer by then. They just started kegging their first batch today. They have a deal with most of the restaurants downtown where you can phone in an order from the brewery and the restaurant of your choice will deliver it to the barstool on which you sit. Win! :drink :dukegirl

    Not sure what time I will start playing but I'll keep you posted. Believe me...they know you are coming!

    If you didn't have the test I'd try to talk you into doing a big bike ride down....I've covered pretty much all the dirtbike stuff in the area over the years, but have seen a big bike loop or two that look interesting - now I just need the weather to cooperate :D
