    In! I"ll be bringing a fresh bottle of Cazadores tequilla.

    Thanks to McD's inlaws, we'll also have 8 bottles of Cinzano extra dry vermouth for martinis, a bottle of Canadian club (the seal says 1968) and a bottle of Southern comfort. Someone will have to bring the gin and olives for the martinis.

    I admit I totally spaced the date. Dunno why I didn't notice it was in April before. All my bikes are pickled for storage anyway....I won't be riding at all when I'm home. :cry

    Ohhh, I don't know. It's a long ride from here. I don't really like whiskey. Tekillya gives me a really bad hangover, ask Dan. Gravel skeers me. I don't like loud noises. You guys going to leave those nasty guns at home? Is it going to be muddy? How about bugs, got any bugs there? And ticks, I hate ticks. And wild animals that make noise in the night, that skeers me too. I'm allergic to ceegars, too. Make sure, that if I make it, I can sit upwind from the ceegars. Have you built an outhouse yet?

    I was planning on coming but can I bring my Glocks? If I can bring my Glocks can I bring my springfield .45? If I can bring those maybe I should bring my American Arms .22lr walther copy? Maybe I could fit my wheelgun also....
    Hell I didn't know I could bring guns....

    Anywho my wife is working that weekend and I don't fall off my 650 near enough so I'll be there, tent, sleeping bag, 5 gallon pail of vasiline (no complainers right? no matter what happens?) chair, food, guns, beverages, painkillers, first aid kit, GPS (so I can find you fuckers), my FYYFF hat, shoes, pants ect ect....

    I hope my Dunlops are up for the mud cause I ain't putting on any real aggressive tires....


    Why the hell can't Jon Diaz make it?
    Free Jon Diaz...
    And my dogs names are Rover and Spot and I ain't bringing them cause they are gunshy to the nth degree.

    The jeep is for the wife to drive. The dog and the wine and the iron dutch oven for the cobbler and the guns and all the other stuff fit into the jeep.

    I bought a 250 to do the minimalist thing. Ya know, fewer possesions and a simpler way. A 250 I thought. Yeah, a little bike with no luggage!! What's the worst that could happen?

    XTL, I am kinda scared by the vaseline and oiled up comments, but, what happens at the farm, stays at the farm, right? :arg :uhoh :lol3


    I wanna ride out, but I wanna bring Duncan too. Damn dog needs to learn how to countersteer so he can ride out his damn self.

    I'm bringing some sorta likker, some sorta food, and some sorta sleepin bag, and maybe a toothbrush. I brought so much stuff to the winter ride, I figger it'll even out.

    Mut, you still leaving at 5?

    Edit: I think I will leave the dog at home, wouldn't be fair to leave him chained up while I'm out carousing. Unless someone wants to give me a sidecar.

    yeah, If I am in I can't hit the road until my daughter leaves for the dance. They are going to dinner and stuff so I figure if I pack ahead of time, which never actually happensut needs to this time, I can just turn the key and head out so around 5 sounds about right.

    I will probably ride the ST, we can put whatsyourdogsname in a saddle bag maybe. Duncan can sit still for four hours can't he?
