    I'll see you all around 6 at the KTM booth as planned. My wife and I will get to the show just before it opens at 4. If anyone wants to join us for Chicago's best Vienna dogs and fresh cut fries at Gene and Judes around 2:30, let me know. We'll be there. I've been eating there since I could chew. I guess that's about 50 years and it's still my favorite! Here 's a few links about the place with the address and a map.

    Motojoe was there, with a girlfriend. Wanna guess if she was asian??:D

    Fun was had by all. Pizza afterward was great. Made it home before two am.

    I went to the BMW Booth and started looking at the Dakar, the nice helpful lady at the booth asked me if she could help me, and I said "where is the KTM booth?" She told me they weren't here this year. I said that was no good as I was meeting friends from on-line there. She looked at me and asked "advrider? I'm Heather, I'm usualy in the BMW threads." O.K. kinda' weird, but cool.
    I brought along a friend to look for his first bike and now he wants a scooter.:huh

    Hey you FF's. LIP Jr. and I had a great time last night and it was great to meet all of you FF's finally. Pizza was great and the company was better. Hope to see the rest of you FF's at the Spring ride or sooner.

    We rode about 80 miles today out for warm drinks and sandwiches in Harvard, IL and back. It was KFSINC, Fireman, an Advrider lurker with no name (Bob) and I. Got the mounts for a new GPS at the show last night, and mounted that up this morning before the ride. Need to run power so I don't just run off batteries, but that will be next weekend's project. Skinner will keep you laughing after a pain killer and some beer. Just watch your kids' around him as he will have your young guns dropping the F'bird before the age of 9.

    See you all soon.
