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

Oops you are correct!

Depends on starting time....but if you are going by sidecar you might want to start 2 days before  Wink Cheesy

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

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  Cool. 2012 is the year of doing stuff without all the back-and-forth of who`s coming and who`s not. Do it regardless Wink

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.
