Tony that forecast is sooo....nice I'm not even going to pack my rain gear, the luggage ability I have with the CTX is a bit more limited then my wonderful C10 was.  Should be nice, for any of you reading this, 2 years ago it rained and rained: the resort even had a worker stay up all night to warn us if the river was going to reach flood stage.

Living on the edge....  next thing you are going to say is that you washed the motorcycle.

Well yeah, I did give it a good washing...but except for the muffler, the CTX is all Plastic!  For awhile I was not sure how in the world I was going to get my tank bag to work, a bungee cord hook ...IF you could find a place the hook would fit on the plastic would most likely break it, the frame consists of about 2 inch pipes that your typical bungee hook does not fit on..well with some help from a fellow COGer in Nebraska I figured a system out.  Basically a rope that goes around the frame pipe and then you put the bungee cord hook on a loup and presto you have a hard point...so to say...then the wonderful Tour Master tank bag has places to hook to. 

Look forward to seeing you again Mike.

There was discussion regarding one or two tents. :)

If you want to see where we are so you can have a cold beverage ready for me this is our SPOT tracker

Once again, high school football has me homebound this weekend. Boo. The Spider is a favorite for Lisa & me.

Will miss you all (well, all except SteveJ...) 😄, but hopefully we'll see some of you at Sunrise Cantina on the 29th.

Just kidding, my friend. Wish we could have gone for a ride this weekend, or at least drank some barley pops & BS'd like every other rally we've done.

Someday I'll retire from high school & get my weekends back...

Here is my link to the photos I took.  I realized that I didn't take many pictures of people.....   but I might have gotten a photo of your tent and/or bike.
