    It has been a long week, so a few adult beverages later I am wondering if there a few of you who might be thinking of heading south for the BMW National. I am almost an in. I'd say 75% in, but I am told that it is 100% by my controlling (for good reason)/ better half. Probably need a new (or somewhat new) bike for that adventure... Oh yeah!

    Damn decisions. Wales or Redmond. Scotland or Redmond... Honey, you reading this? Extend the Europe or shorten and ride with the Gang... The Gang always comes first! Maybe they want to ride across the Pond... Sucks to be in this dilemma!

    Advice???????? Who can refuse looking for some new wheels? Who can refuse riding to Stonehenge? Life is too short!!!!!

    You know my dilimma, what is yours? (I will have you know that I am drinking a GREAT Italian pinot G.)

    Redmond is just a hop and half a skip away from me... I'll be there.

    Are we going to have Slow races, Blind-folded runs and - most importantly - Wiener Biting Contests???

    Looking like me too and maybe even the Jo. I'm working on buying her a used Miata for Christmas so she can carry the tent and gear and every nite will be a honeymoon, well not all nites with me. Started to get out of debt and got uncomfortable. Thank god for Canada pension plan taken early. I think I might even have the tourism dept. of the Yukon having a booth in the big tent. They are starting to see that dis bike chit is significant tourism,Da!
    Can't risk being on the outs wit da Griz!

    Riding to Stonehenge and a Team Pterodactyl gathering invoked in one post ... hmm. Well, WTF, I'll be there (BMW electrics and global warming willing....)

    I don't know your plans but mine are set ... I've already booked rooms in Bend at a motel less than 1/2 mile (staggering distance) from Deshutches Brewing Company and Bend Brewing Company. I'l buy a round.

    Miata chase rig for the Redmond Rendezvous. :clap :clap :clap
    Will it hold enough adult beverages???
    I call "shotgun"

    OBTW.. the Miata chaser might be real handy for those of you deciding to leave the GS'es in the barn and taking Flying Bricks to this one.
    Didn't know they made TKC's to fit K-bikes.
    I'm leaving "old Blue" in the stable and going with BiggerBird.
    Just sayin'
