The Rendezvous, Spider, and RWTW are all truly awesome and I try to not miss any of them.

On TDY near Lufkin, TX heading back to FLA.

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 "s*** 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.

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:

Letting work know I will not be around for work week 18 & 19 in 2019, cause I will be in Arkansas.

 :103: :singing: :campfire:

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. :'(

Have fun everyone and ride safe. :motonoises:
