GB, Troll, KW, DC...good to hear. I don't think anyone had any major issues from their Drifters all week. Didn't see anyone working on theirs except when Troll did some troubleshooting and found a wire going to Chiefs fan that had grounded out and blew a fuse. Minor repair.  ;D
I plan on riding back to Maggie Labor Day weekend with some friends...only 3 hrs from my house...anyone want to join us?

Ok, the numbers are in for my trip...I guess I could have had more fun, I still have money....ANYWAY....2,677 miles, Monday to Monday....and 46.3 mpg over all, with a couple of tanks at about 52....and in spite of what some others have alluded to, I managed to gain 5 lbs....too much good country cookin', and sweet potato fries.....

When we were at the Wheels through time museum, I was trying to describe one of the few types of motorcycles that weren't there. These are called either tricars or foretrucks. I have a picture of the last Harley foretruck built, which is now residing at the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Ia., as well as a Wells Fargo tricar which is also there...so now you know what I was talking about....
