    Come on now, this is a family website. I don't think the over reactive mods would like that.

    CETME you should definitely get in on this ride. You and Vermin are the best ride reporters on here.

    Jeez what kind of person are you after all? Should I have said Festoon your girlfriend. I suspect you have a dirty imagination.
    I meant paint her up highviz and bedazzle her with all kinds of exotic trinkets (found in the ditch) held on with cable ties and garish bumperstickers

    Will try to get photos of Cack in front of famous Alaska landmarks. The Buckaroo Club, Great Alaska Bush Company... :rofl Maybe with the Matanuska Glacier in the background if we get on the road early enough this evening. And if Cack makes it that far. :uhoh

    I am trying to goad CETME (or MsLizVt who has been suspiciously quiet lately) into going and getting it and riding it somewhere. Ideally it would come back to Detroyt. but that is not necessary. First things first it has to make it back somewhere south of the glaciers

    I can't believe I'm purchasing a $100,000/300,000/50,000 policy for this bike. Hopefully I won't run in to a Rolls Royce or some other >$50,000 car/airplane/house.

    Well, western NC is not really on the way to Michigan but if Cack or one of her riders need a rest they can just send me a PM.
    Cacking the Dragon would be fun!

    Hi!

    I'm just sitting back and waiting for the riding to start.

    I figure Cack has a mind of her own. The old girl may end up in San Diego, or perhaps meet up with a handsome Gold Wing, who spirits her off to Bemidji with promises of wild and kinky ... tune ups.
    (would that be incest?) (does it matter?)

    Once Cacks found a berth I'll get on and ride with the wind and the noise and the smoke and the .... ______________ fill in the blanks.

    Look you old codgers, I AM excited about it. All of my comments are sarcastic. I'm really not nervous at all. Breaking down will only add another story from this trip.

    What makes you think a studly GL1800 is going to fall for a "painted lady"?

    But I'll make sure not to park my KLR too close to the hussy.

    I can promise you, that if Cack and Tom can make it this far tonight, you'll wake up to the new thread tomorrow morning. :nod
