I am game!!

I know about RTW Doug! Besides hotel in BG, he has a Bulgarian girlfriend with whom they have been together quite some time now. He just went to Magadan on a Sportster!

In any event, let's go see the Cannonball run guys! There was an article in the last Motorcyclist magazine about the run.

As Ben and Alan will attest we found a great road to get to Newburgh, NY for the Fall Ride 2011.

I am about to request a vacation day for that Friday. Would you guys think we should go the day before?

I don't think I've got it wrong, but that was Scott who went with us Andy, not Alan.

Oops you are correct!

Was there an answer to my question somewhere?  ::)
Regarding the sidecar remark, I wish this was skype, so I can write (finger). Oh well, I am sure you get the idea  ;D
  :P :P :P

Lets discuss nearer the time. Its hard enough organizing a beer night in a weeks time never mind trying to organize something 9 months in advance!! At the end of the day if you want to go then go  8). 2012 is the year of doing stuff without all the back-and-forth of who`s coming and who`s not. Do it regardless ;)

Ill be going but no idea at this point when Ill be leaving. It`ll depend on the weather of the day no doubt but for now its early Friday morning. This is something I have always wanted to see and think it will be really cool.
