    I'll be doing some work for BMW of St. Louis this week. I think I'll have them fit the 1150 in for repairs while I'm there. We'll see.

    Well, I just don't want to be left out, so I brought my GS in today for service and new tkc 80's. Hopefully the rear drive leak is just a seal gone bad. I hear it's common if you do enough water crossings. Let's hope the weather holds out. :thumb

    Not sure where to camp yet.
    Any thoughts from you guys are welcome.
    Hilltop is the best view but will be subject to wind.
    Spring ride site would be less wind but will require the creek crossing
    above the pond is a possibility
    Also, there is a flat spot in the woods
    How many riders are expected to camp
    How many street oriented, non creekable bikes?



    this is something we can decide on Sunday the 23rd, I'll get some other opinions
    If you guys arrive before me, you can pile wood by the deer camp which is just inside the gate to the West about 100 yds.


    hope this helps, look forward to seeing you all



    cheers

    I may truck it out.

    :hide

    The weather for friday looks pretty crappy for a 300 mile jaunt with minimal gear, and I plan on camping, so a soaked sleeping bag would suck.

    I may try to ride out halfway thurs night, half friday. We'll see.

    At least if I truck I can bring two bikes :D

    I'll just do what I did last time - navigate by looking for the fire


    I am coming in a 4WD so anywhere is good for me - we use my buds truck to ferry in gear across the creek for riders if need be


    can't wait

    my bud is borowing a KLR for this and this will be his first DS ride

    we gets us a cherry to bust boys

    Hey, into practical jokes? If it's a late 80's white and green model KLR, I know where we can get a really thrashed one to "return" to your friend.

    I'm still in, depending on word on my grandfather's health. My mom made it sound like he was on a vent waiting to meet the hereafter. Spoke with my father this evening. According to him, gramps is only on oxygen at night with one of those portable units. Dad will see gramps tomorrow/this weekend.

    I don't have directions to the farm. Although, I may not need them. Pilot and I are supposed to caravan out on Friday. And he's been there.

    Thanks, Buzz.

    Gramps is a classic. He's 87 years old. Mechanic (for printing presses) back when he worked. He can fix anything. Note: that trait skipped a generation and is only nacient (sp?) in me. He was adopted. His dad died in the Irish famine. Great athlete when he was younger. Played ball with Red Grange (sp? again). Taught us kids how to play cards. Better yet, taught us how to count cards. Absolutely jumps on anyone who plays a bad card at any game. Still has his vodka at 5:00 daily. Stopped smoking 3 packs a day when he was 63, after they cut out half his lung. now that my grandma can't see, he does everything. Cooks, cleans, all the chores - he didn't do any of that when he was younger. Gramps was old school. But 60+ years of marriage will change that for a loved one.

    Here's to you, Jim, the Radical clan patriarch. :thumb You've got a few more in ya. I know it.
