    I may have to pop over as well; seem to do this every year, and enjoy it.

    In case anyone wants to ride over on Sunday Aug 22:
    I'm going to be at the Phillips 66 "U-Stop" on the east side of Council Bluffs
    on Hwy 6 aka E. Kanesville Blvd at around 0730. Located just west of the Big K Mart, at Kanesville and Sherwood Ave. Near Iowa Western CC, Exit 8 off of I-80. Leave there about 0800. Head to Marne via Hwy 191 to Neola then County G-18/Hwy 83 east to Marne. 45 miles from CB.
    Kinda early I know, but if you want to get in on the good demo rides you have to sign up right away.

    Too early for my blood; I still haven't decided which day to run the track at Hastings and which to ride to Marne. Maybe I'll see you over there.

    Edit: now it looks like I will be over in Marne on Saturday, track day Sunday.

    :lol3 I just got the Magna running last night so I was wanting to take it for a shake-down run. I don't trust it ~400 miles, so I'd probably take the ST tomorrow.

    I think I'll shoot to be there around 11. Am I still going to be able to demo anything at that point?

    The problem is that I have a new-ish touring bike that gets used mostly for in-town duties. I have it running really good right now too so I need to see if I've improved my gas mileage at all... :evil

    Good enough reason for me. Enjoy the ride over. I'm guessing to be there about 10:30 onwards.
