Ron,

The rally is currently on my riding calendar.  I would expect to arrive on Thursday.  I have attended several times and have always enjoyed it.

Brad and I planned the trip while sitting around at the Wisconsin rally. We'll be there, dog willing and the ferry stays afloat.  ;D

Will be good to see you all there. Old & new friends all.
Sorry you & family cant make it Jeff. Know how those family deals get. Gets harder & harder to find time for everything in life.
Jim, missin you & Cheryl. Sam & Beth have taken a lot of your Two Up plaques in the past bunch of years!

Hope the brown & orange long sleeves t-shirts (see rally website) doesn't turn to many folks off. Was our little Avery's idea. Seems orange is her favorite color this month!
With the weather as crazy as it's been this summer, ought to be interesting to see what we get this year.

Ride safe, ride strong - see ya's in a few weeks

Ron,

I still have this on the calendar.  Expecting to arrive on Thursday.  Looking forward to seeing Derek L. there also.

Edit:  Plans have changed.  I'm now expecting to arrive Friday instead of Thursday.  My grandson is playing football in Fenton and I can watch that on Thursday night.  Sounds like a winner.

Bring your jacket liners.  ;D Aviation wx is giving a forecast of a high of 58, low of 42 on Friday. I'm ready for it. Tired of this 95 stuff..

I'll be there and Louise has the soft cast off, so she's back riding her own bike. 

Look for the new entrance sign that Louise & I made and donated to the Rally......Hope it's easy to spot!!!!!!

As we live within 20 minutes of the site and have a good shop, anyone in need of tools etc, I'm happy to help out.

I'm also doing the lunch ride again this year on Saturday.  Again it's a new route & lunch spot.

I always look forward to the new and exciting roads (Not to mention the excellent shape of the roads in the Leelanau!) and good food!
I will be attending but not sure on what bike....Might be the old Honda Nighthawk or the Buell, no Guzzi this year.  :-\

Finally made it to Brad's in Lake Como via MG cycle. Thought Id pick up a shift return spring for Rosie. If she decides to break one it'll be in the UP, eh? ;D Man! Wish there was a way of hanging Rosie from the Colt's strut. Took forever..  ;D :BEER:

I would love to go but it's in the wrong end of the state.  I just don't have that much free time anymore. :'(
