    Thanks! I'd love to come!
    Joe Nardy and a few others flew out a couple of times and rented a bike from the Reno Honda dealer. I don't know what that cost
    Let me know if it's doable. If you've never been to Yosemite, it will definitely be worth it if you can afford it! It's the most awesome place I've ever seen, especially on a bike!

    Highs in the 90's in the valleys and 80's in the mountains. Very low humidity and usually very dry. Nice!!

    I'm throwing my hat in the ring Bruce. Your Yosemite rally in '08 was my first and I've been to a rally every year since, even got to host one myself, so getting down that way for a 10th. anniversary rally would be great. Only problem is this year any planning could be last minute. Going to be officially be pulling the plug on work. It's been too slow last couple of years and not worth hanging around waiting for the phone to ring so it's retirement time. Yay!!!. Part of that plan will involve selling our acreage and purchasing a house in town and who knows how that's all going to work out time wise. Going to be a big change but that was part of the original plan way back when anyway. Hopefully be able to make it, don't know which bike I'll riding either. Both are ready to go but might try selling the 750. The 1000 is much better for trips but it'll be easier to sell the 750 if it's bring ridden. Fingers crossed that it all works out.
