    I can't say "come Hell or high water" I will be there but Hell doesn't have a prayer in stopping me next year. High water or a table saw might,,,,,

    Can those turns really only be taken at 20mph?

    I'd like to make this one, depending on the scheduling. The XR would have to travel via pick-up; riding to Colorado was do-able, but Kansas to North Carolina moves from "tough" to "dumb." (Anything over 300 miles and I take the ST1300...)

    well, a quick look at the calendar shows the weekend before Memorial Day weekend to be May 18 and 19. So Thursday and Friday is 16 and 17. So, that appears to be the dates.

    I wimped out last year , due to the horrible weather forecast .

    So I'm pretty sure that if I come in 2019 that the weather forecast will be spectacular and .........
    it will rain every day .

    I do hope to make it , with my son if he's not off somewhere " changing the world ".
    He's 21 yo now , in college .

    Well if it is the weekend before Memorial Day i can make it. I'm only 6 hours away and i fitted a set of nice little set of throw over bags for traveling that can go on or off in 5 minutes. We always have a club run Memorial Day weekend somewhere but since i am "full retard" now i have lots of time. My ol lady is a country girl and when i quit full time work in December that's the way she mispronounced it....................i think. I had promised myself i was taking the XR up there this year anyway.
