    Planning on it.
    Not sure when.
    My guess is sometime after Barber (Oct 5-7)
    Did you keep your AK phone number or did you go local.
    If it changed .... PM me your new one.

    I'm thinking RLee at Southern Comfort will have us covered!
    Starting to get spooled.
    9 days left of DaisyDuty.
    Looking forward to Barber.
    Going to try and hit midwest/upstate New York and then head south.

    Checking in.
    MadMax and I headed out from SouthernComfort this morning.
    Fairly drama-free getting the bikes out of storage.
    Spent the weekend organizing/packing and laughing with RLee. Great times!.

    Having trouble posting with my new phone so things may be a bit spotty.

    Solar ..... thanks for the museum tics.

    Slov ..... not tryin to blow you off re: getting back to you. Technical issues.
    Hopefully you are finding folks to ride with.

    Beezer ........ could not see the picture(s) you sent of the 4sale Kbike.

    DapMan ........this is going to be epic!

    Griz .......North Florida Gulf coast secure. Heading north tomorrow.
    Rebuilt Ohlin front and fork seals scheduled for the AM.
    Talk to me.

    Found out just how far the FLNBRK can go on tank of fuel.
    NOT FAR ENOUGH!
    The Road Ranger showed up (with fuel) 2 minutes after MMax headed out for the rescue.
    Interstate 10 smack in the middle of 30 mile apart exits. Kept thinking I would get a red dash light AFTER the yellow one like BiggerBird. Didn't happen.
    Cost me a dinner for the rescue. Oh well ...... got that out of the way.

    Annie and I depart tomorrow for La Pine, Oregon for Reuben Run 7 (it’s an FJR thing). We will be camping too.

    Well I didn’t know the low fuel changed colors. Will have to strap the rotopax to the 1150 and test this out.

    Currently in Cookville, TN.
    Dragging feet just a bit to link up with RogR near South Bend, IN on Tuesday.
    Brakes on the Brick took a chit yesterday and BMW in Hotlanta says the pump is toast.
    Sarah and the gang at TMS put me on a used one in Washington state that will be sent to the dealer in Cleveland. Fingers crossed.
    Thank you TMS.
    The saga continues.

    Sounds great Griz.
    Currently in Auburn, IN.
    Had a great ride over from South Bend.
    Did the Studebaker museum yesterday and the Auburn/Cord/Dusenberg museum today. Tomorrow we roll to Warren, Ohio and the Packard museum.
    Brakes are working as they should.
    EBay pump is on its way to Aurora, Ohio.
    Game plan is if it has not arrived by the time we get there, the dealer will forward it to the destination of choice,
