    Finally plotting a course to get to this rally.

    Looks like we'll head to Wichita for the first leg of this journey. Spend an evening there and enjoy a microbrew and brick oven pizza. Next day head to Kansas city, MO. My wife has some places she wants to see and my boy likes breweries so we'll tour one there. After that head to St Louis. None of us have been there and we'd like to see the arch. Apparently there's a tram to go up inside the thing. Tickets are pretty cheap too. Next day, Thursday, we should roll into Bedford mid afternoon.

    Sounds like a good plan, Roger. I didn't know the tram ride to the top of the St. Louis arch had re-opened; they shut down a few years back to revamp the whole thing, and then, well, you know, COVID-19.

    Looks like they're back open at partial capacity. It's a very cool activity, and the view is fantastic.

    My wife and I happened to ride it a few months before they closed for construction. Verrrrrry rickety and worn, but we made it up and back.

    Everything looking good for this trip so far. Bike is getting ready day by day. Won't be painted, but will be mechanically sound. And don't act like you've never ridden next to an ugly bike before, LOL.

    We've all seen our share of "ugly" old bikes at these GS rallies. No worries.

    2001 Yamaha FZ1 (bought same one back)

    Oh my goodness! If you ever saw any of the bikes that PainterDave showed up on, you'd know you have nothing to worry about. Those bikes weren't even mechanically sound, much less aesthetically anything. And then there was the bike painted completely in bed liner. Certainly had more texture than your average motorcycle paint job!

    Note that Painter Dave was a house painter... as you can see from this photo of Dave's delightfully dilapidated machine in Galena in 2006:



    The man. The legend. Say what you will about his motorcycle, Dave always got there. And back. Somehow.

    Note the wooden bracket for the driving lights. I remember the wiring literally rendered me speechless for a moment, then I decided to just avert my eyes.





    Man, I miss Dave. We all learned a lot from him.

    I had to shake my head but give him credit for the All thread luggage rack he had on the above pictured bike when I met him in Missouri in 2006.
    2002 KLR650 Ugly but fun!
    2001 KLR650 too pretty to get dirty

    Life is a balancing act, enjoy every day, "later" will come sooner than you think. Denying yourself joy now betting you will have health and money to enjoy life later is a bad bet.
