    The guys from Badweb have organized, and are going on a last ride to The East Troy factory, and then eating lunch.

    All who want to come, even if you do not own a Buell, can.


    ------

    The basic schedule is

    Meet at Hal's HD at 10AM

    Ride to East Troy
    depending on weather, it might be a short or long scenic ride

    Meet up for lunch, which will be pre-paid for, but donations towards the lunch are greatly welcomed to help pay for it.

    From what I understand, they are trying to get Erik to come along for the ride, we'll see what happens. It will be fun, but somewhat solemn either way!

    WOw, what a day

    Soggy, 40% chance of rain, bleh, it was like 120%! :lol:

    The Buell crowd is great, great bunch of people to talk to. Even though I was one of the only guys on a non-buell, I was welcomed by all!

    It was so wet, even fuzzy Mr. Happy clung to the windsheild like he was a suction cup!

    The handiwork...

    A nice damp ride to the factory was rewarding. As everybody (and the factory workers) were off eating, you could almost have free reign to look around the factory.

    In the backlot, looking at all the crated bikes.

    Erik, what a down to earth guy! Really sincere when you talk to him, he is such a good exam

    A touching reminder that people- Americans- made these bikes, and will be directly affected by recent developments.


    What a strong fan base- good for you guys.
