This is pretty cool Dusty, I've been following along.

I didn't notice, but I was wondering, are the funds being distributed to a charity, this site, the rally organizers? A Nigerian Prince? ;)

May have to join in on the raffle, being Guzzi-less!

 The proceeds will be distributed to WG , the library in Cedar Vale , and the fund to pay for improvements to Hewins Park .

 Or maybe a trip to Mexico  :grin:

 It would be very cool if you and the vertically-challenged-one could attend from Germany next year,

Thanks for the response Dusty!

Never been to Mexico! I'll take that trip.  :wink:

We actually moved to Wisconsin from Germany for family reasons, long story, but we'll be here in Madison for awhile yet I think.

I'll keep the rally in mind.

Just saw this & spot read replies. Do you have a plan to get the bike to Wichita? I'm driving from near Reno Sept 1st or 2nd using I-40 most of the way to NC. If you don't have a plan yet & can get the bike to Reno I'll take it no charge. Put transport $ elsewhere.

Am really excited that Giada will be taken care of and will find a new home. Someone is going to win a great rider!

Laurie and I plan to attend next year. Dusty said I can pull the number from the hat!

Of course I have been forbidden to buy a raffle ticket by someone...

And the bag mounts are the no longer available National Cycle mounts. Bags themselves are still available.

Ride safe and often...

Sounds like the plan is coming together; that's a cool fundraiser.

 Yes Dale , the transport is dealt with . We do appreciate the offer .

 A few of you have already purchased a raffle ticket , thanks . As stated before , $20.00  a pop , and how does everyone feel about a bulk discount ? Something like 3 for $50.00 , 6 for $80.00 .

 Shameless bump .

 The raffle will actually start on Sept 25 2018 , probably not close it until May 10 2019 , which is the Fri during the rally . This should give everyone plenty of time to make a decision .

 As for whether or not it will be necessary to be in attendance at the rally to win , that won't be required , although we certainly hope everyone can make it .

So, The Rally you're referring to is Cedar Vale.  And it looks like you're slipping it a week in 2019 as compared to the timing of the same event in 2018; ie, CV in 2018 was May 3-6 and in 2019 will be May 9-12.  Is that correct?
Essential to the pursuit of happiness is knowing when you've caught it.
Life's what happens while you're making other plans.
I always knew I'd get old.  How fast it happened was a bit of a surprise, though.

After suffering tire issue's with the toy hauler then finding an independant tire shop that was open on a Sunday that had the right size tires Eric and Heather finally arrived in Lathrop CA.

Took just over an hour to make sure both bikes were properly secured for the trip and all associated gear stowed properly.

During that time had a very pleasant conversation with Eric and Heather. They are really nice folks. I thank them for doing this!







Glad I got one last ride with Giada earlier in the day before her new adventure begins!! After a good going over she will be ready to share new roads with her new rider.

Also sent along the MG windshield that served me well and even found a bike cover.

For the price of a raffle ticket the new owner will be getting a daily rider...not a garage queen! She will be mechanically sound after her refit.

If plans work out I will be at Cedar Vale and will draw the winning ticket.

THANKS to everyone that contributed to the shipping fund and thanks to Eric and Heather for pushing on through issues to make this happen.

I will miss her but wish her well with her new adventure!

Will post a few pictures soon. It came with a windscreen, what appears to be a quality bike cover with storage bag and a few other items.
Bike appears solid, frame paint and drive shaft assembly paint are like new. The tank is badly faded and with surface scratches on the rear upper third of the tank, like many zipper scratches or dirt under a tank bag that shifted. Front seat needs recovered. Front fender has one noticeable scratch on the rear area. Some paint flaking on the engine case. Did not notice any dents or creases.
One with patience and a bit of skill could probably make this bike look quite nice with a decent rattle can paint job.

We are planning to go through the raffle bike this next weekend. When the crew (Dusty, MotoChuck250 and FUBAR) help to get my T-3 back on the road a couple of years ago my grandson observed from the Norge and napped on the deck chairs with FUBAR. This year he is ready to supervise from the T-3. He was also getting a feel for the raffle Stone and ready for another FUBAR nap.
