Randy and his GPS...  That was the shortest way with NO TOLLS.  Really.

I gouged and cracked my belly pan on one of those craters...  Fortunately
everything on my bike had a thin coat of oil, so I slipped through most of it!  :rotflmao:

The 'scar' gives the Connie some character... and a great story behind it!

Sorry about your crunch Marty. Hazards of dual sporting the Conncours.  ;)

Neither a tropical storm nor an 8 mile gravel road will stop me from getting to the twisties of the Cherohala!  :motonoises:

I only wish I had a pic of my Honda CB750F axle deep on a 'shortcut' in the Redwoods. It was not pretty.

It's all good Randy.  :great:  It's not the first scratch, and it won't be the last.   ;)

Got that new gasket in, and most of the oil cleaned up.  Connie's ready for the next trip!    :Woot_Emoticon:

SteveJ, It's almost impossible to get time off in August this late....  :'(

Especially the amount of time needed to get there and back, AND enjoy the rallies.
We bid vacation in December/January.  I'm hoping to attend next year's rally though... 
Iffen the dates are set early enough.

Appreciate y'all goin' outta da way to set that shindig up though!  :)

If I remember correctly, a feat in itself somedays, the information about following year's National is released to the attendees and membership at the National. So you should be able to plan. Hoping it is a little more easterly, but we shall see.

I'm also not doing the national, just the VBR. IronbuttAl is hitting both, and I think a few others are heading up.

The 25th anniversary COG National "Sliverdammit" Rally will be June 16 - 20, 2014 some where east of the Mississippi, per Ken Ford's announcement in the Concourier.

That's the target date, weekend of Sept 5th.  The final logistics have not been set in stone but we will get that done here real soon.
