    Oh come on you guys it's just a little satire about spending the weekend in a park shelter in Wisconsin waiting for the rain to stop !
    This rally has been at multiple locales and is famous for rain !

    Forecast doesn't look bad, 50% chance of rain saturday is the worst of it. Got the F2 frame fixed and torsion bar straightened out, if it all goes back together as planned tomorrow I'll be at the rally by thursday evening.

    Neither heaven nor Iowa, but not a bad morning to wake up on the road.

    I believe that was near or at MP 361 on 90. We just had coffee in Jackson, which seems very nice, and are heading for Rochester next.

    Ok, must be a different rest area than I thought. Looks like you’ll pass 80 miles to the south of me.
    Carry on.

    Saw that - wondered what it was. Or why it was.

    Damn it Dave - I was going to work up to that!

    Anyway, now I'll just have to make sure any pics are from the right side...like this one:

    IMG_4774.JPG

    I rolled into the wheel chock thing, the sidestand is down, it's in gear and I threw on some painter's tape here and there to keep it from falling away from the sidestand. Should be good - yeah? I'll make sure to slow down for the corners....

    Thanks to all of you that contributed with offers of help, loaning equipment, suggestions, etc and even davebig to make this endeavor work for us. Looks like the Red One has a good home and hope it gets as safely enjoyed to the West as it has in the Midwest.

    Well it hasn't left the Midwest yet - the pro-corn propaganda is still everywhere:

    Hung out in Duluth long enough for this place to open

    IMG_4785.JPG

    If you haven't been, I'd recommend a stop if you're nearby. It's all there - corporate and fabrication up top, show room on the ground floor and inventory in the basement. Kind of reminds of the family run tent and awning shop I worked in for a brief time.

    Oh, and this:

    I wonder if Laura wants to move to Minnesota...

    Drive around and check out the bakery-density there. Or anywhere within 30 minutes commute.
