I'm scheduled to be back in town Monday(is the weather good yet? LOL), so should be there for the open house on the 14th. Am anxious to get home to the GT and get the Avons on. It will be a few days for that as the bike is currently all stripped down in the garage for farkle wiring. If you and/or Ken want to see one "naked" you should come by.
What guy wouldn't want to see something naked... especially a GT!
The weekend will be clear and in the low 70's, but a weather front will roll in Sunday night. Bummer for you, but for us in the Pac NWet it will be a nice riding weekend. I got out yesterday and today already. I'm getting a jump on the miles.
Are you wanting to put the Avons on yourself? You are always welcome over to Ernie's shop. I'm taking our LT into BMWWO Tigard next week for radio replacement. It should be covered under the extended warranty, so why not get'er done. I'm looking forward to seeing the new facility.
I'm wanting to put together some overnight trips to get GT check points. Interested?
The CC ride is going to be in July. Not a good time for weather (hot and muggy) but it is a week that I have off that poor Pauline has to work. I can't see staying home and pulling weeds.
The plans haven't been made firm yet. Mark and I want to do a CC, but it might not be a CC50. We want to ride from Seaside to Portland MA and eat lobster on the dock. Mark and I are calling it "Portland to Portland". Silly notion, but a fun trip. I would like to think of it an an ultmate RTE.
It would be hard to get'er done in 50, but that is ok too. If we decide to do an IB ride it will be a BBG going out and one coming back. More planning is in the works.
Alabama is where we're heading after CCR. Got to visit our daughter and her new husband in Tuskalousa. Students need attention you know.
The week of Memorial Day is up in the air right now. The "guys" are getting together for an overnight planning trip in two weeks. We will be going to Harbor Oregon and staying at the BW. The checkpoint is right next door, so Pauline will go with me to get her stamp in the book while we're there. We might be going to Canada on the "Boy's Ride", but I'm hoping to make a case for Santa Fe and southern CO. I think the guys are getting a little tired of the "west of the Rockies" rides, but I think there is still a road or two we haven't taken.
Give me a call when you are in town. If I can help with your farkeling let me know.
