    So....shit. I just broached the subject with fishwife, who said I could go, but because it's easter weekend, she's going to cut me off. Judging from the look on her face, it may not just be an idle threat. :bluduh

    I said I'd try to push it out a week. Can we? :(:

    I'm in! :thumb I'll be bringing my SV650S-ridin' roomate along with me too, along with the remote possibility of my buddy Dusty tagging along for part of the route on his Buell.

    I'll bring the camera gear and try to get some good shots of folks' bikes if they want. I don't have the bags for my GS-AD yet (grrr) so I can't bring the whole kit, or I would. If any southbounder has some luggage space available I'd love to toss in a small duffle of flashes and clipstands.

    I have been lurking on this board for about a month now, and realy enjoy the 'spirited' postings. I formerly owned an F650, and sold it about 6 months ago (and have regretted it....) Now I have an '83 R80Rt that is wishing it was an R90s. Some one took the Rt fairing off and put an s fairing on it. I have only had the bike for 3 weeks.

    Greg, Thanks for the email about Parksfield. Unfortunaltly, My R80 will be strune all over my garage this weekend as I am going to try to catch up on some of my maintenance (my rear breaks are nearly gone).
