Sorry to hear you won't be making it D1!  I thought last time I heard, you were still going?  Hope you get some riding in anyway.

Ditto on D1....was looking forward to meeting you man. BTW...those shots of your 1500...really nice.

I'm still a go, but have decided to let the rain clear out, so the Lodge keeps my Tuesday night and will be leaving Wed at zero-dark thirty....with clear weather. After two days of cleaning, thought I might avoid the rain. Should be at the creek Wed - pm.

Don't know that I'd have the nerve to ride thru Chicago when it's dry, much less pourin' rain.
Hope you have a good ride Troll.

Ritchie-Sorry to hear your not going make it this year.

I'm leaving Wed AM and haven't done a single thing...guess I better charge my Ipod shuffle tonight.  ;D

We made it to the Creekside by 20:00 even though we had more than 200 miles of torrential rain. Here's GreenBarn's bike, along with mine at 06:30, and again later at a fuel stop in Kentucky

There were originally no rides scheduled for today,  so I had planned to go and ride the Dragon again. I put out an open invitation, and there were seven of us!   Beautiful ride to Deals Gap, and the traffic was pretty light, so we had a really enjoyable ride in both directions!  We had home made sausage and chicken Jambalaya for dinner

And that jambalaya WAS GOOD.
