Got the Avon am26 roadriders mounted today. Seven and half weeks until I can try them out in the twisties at the HMR #6.  Hopefully the 2 feet of snow  :truce: that's on the ground here is gone soon so I can test them out.  :motonoises:

Finally registered today, looking forward to the trip. Once again thank you and the family for putting this on #6!!!!!!
I am very curious what  kind of contraption Ted and Jim will be bringing to sleep in. Ted would not tell me last fall, just gave me that "shit eating grin"( yankee  expression).
See you in a couple months, if not sooner.

Certainly hope it does melt for ya. Not to mention the other northerners, about a 1/4 of the attendees will be from the far north.

Just 3 weeks left to register, so get it done!  :beerchug:

We've decided that Tacos will fit in the budget (we think). So Thursday night dinner will be tacos, refried beans, chips salsa. Having the stove/oven in the shop, it won't be any problem to heat shells as needed for late arrivals.

Sounds perfectly wonderful or wonderfully perfect. Delicious and frugal. Gotta love it.

Just want to do better than pizza. Gotta make some small improvements every year. Ya know every year is the last year, so we want it to be the best!

We are upping to 3 porta-a-johns this year. I can have one put in your spot, but ya gotta share. Then there's all that noise to!  :rotflmao:

Cliff, did you run the electrical power out near the barn?
        {Just wondering in case we need to use a fan}..

How about you COGgers up North?
  I see your getting more heavy snow..
        Is it still looking like you will be able to come to the rally?

I really hate to say this as I know I'll be chastised, "SEVERELY".
  But, it is a possible option if ya'll are neck deep in snow.
      {ie; If the snow is too deep} ya could trailer the bikes down.

Ride safe, Ted  {Let the FLAMES BEGIN!!!}

PS: Hit 90* here today.

I'll be there.  Fortunately for me,  I'm in eastern Nebraska so very little snow here.  Unlike western Nebraska where they have already closed the interstate down which makes it tough to get a paycheck.
    Looking forward to riding the twisties of Arkansas and getting a real test for the new am26 roadriders  :)) :great: :motonoises:

And the long distance award goes tooooooo?  :beerchug:

Unfortunately, some things have come up that make this trip unrealistic for Jami and I. Life happens :truce:

No long distance award for me this year. :'(

Hi Ted.  Hope you are well.  You asked the following question;

How about you COGgers up North?
  I see your getting more heavy snow..
        Is it still looking like you will be able to come to the rally?

I really hate to say this as I know I'll be chastised, "SEVERELY".
  But, it is a possible option if ya'll are neck deep in snow.
      {ie; If the snow is too deep} ya could trailer the bikes down.​

Not sure if you are referencing the group from South Dakota, but if you are;
  • Yes, an ugly winter storm just passed through the area.  Although not unexpected....still don't like it.
  • Absolutely, we do still plan to come down and hang out with you all in a few weeks.
  • 3 of us are planning to ride (trailer is ready...just in case).  1 is coming a couple days later and is planning to trailer.

Hope that helps and looking forward to seeing you and the rest of the gang!

Hi Soda.
I was partially referring to your group, but did a general note as I know folks are coming from all over.
Was a bit worried as the storm looks like a bad one..

Ride safe, See ya'll soon, Ted

Wishing everyone a safe and best trip ever.  The trip to Cliffs a couple years ago was the greatest trip I ever made. Stayed in Nashville, Memphis and Tupelo on my way to Arkansas. Was on an Elvis high when I arrived and to finish it off with A great group of people.
Cheers  :beerchug:

Ted, actually looking forward to seeing you too. Have a safe trip.
Make sure that F150 is full of gas, Jim's air bag is operational, the cycle trailer tires are properly inflated, and double check the trailer safety chains. OH, make sure Momma, packs enough sandwiches for you and Jim to make the 470 mile, 8 hour drive.
All fun aside, see you Thursday.

Ya'all know how to make us Yankees welcome.  :rotflmao: Looking forward to seeing everyone and swapping stories over a few beverages.

Since I live way further North than Kim, I hope the snow is gone in Iowa and Wisconsin. Everything is clear way up here in tropical Minni-sota. The ice is off the lakes and we can go outside for for more than 15 minutes at a time. I don't even need an ice scraper for the bike. Even the septic system is thawed at the lake home. Looking forward to our four days of summer.

Due to the weather being unfavorable in the Great White North I will be able to attend this fine event.  See you all on Thursday :)

Just a heads up. Push Mountain Rd is the cleanest I've ever seen it. A little bit of rock on the first corner off of 14 and that is all. I've hit it three times in the last couple of days.

Should arrive Tuesday. It will be good seeing everyone. And the Trump Tower.

On TDY near Mountain Home AR

I would but I had to throw out my whisk broom. I had to get a new sleeping bag and it takes up a bit more room.  :rotflmao: :beerchug:

. Good thing ya got a tire here!   
This tire is lasting longer than I thought. I'm doing my best to get it worn out.  :motonoises:

Not a problem.
  Tie your new sleeping bag behind bike, and drag it over the gravel until "it" is gone.

"it" = gravel or new sleeping bag

This will; 1) be a good test of your sleeping bag,
              2) clear the gravel
              3) allow you to practice on Hwy 14
              4) lighten bike by getting rid of worn out sleeping bag
        and 5) wear tires so Cliff can change them for you.
                        :whoo:

Glad I could help.  :great:
          Ride safe, Ted
