    Hi everyone,
    We have 2 lean-to's for 4 nights (Larch & Cherry), and 2 lean-to's for 2 nights (Fri/Sat, Pine & Spruce).
    4 nights in 2 lean-to's are Scott, Skip, Andy & Brenda.
    2 nights in 2 lean-to's are Justin, Jethro, Lyle, and ??
    And Rich has his site for 4 nights too at Walnut.
    Possible cameo appearances from Edbot, Lurch, Keith and ??

    Temps seem pretty favorable, with lows in the upper 50's - so I think we got lucky.
    Precipitation, well hard to say but a little on Friday am and Saturday night, but sunny, warm and gorgeous all in between!

    Looking forward to plenty of friendship, riding, campfire, relaxation, and of course beverages.
    Ride safe, see you Thursday or Friday!!

    We’ll be heading that way hopefully by 10:30-11:00am, working 12’s so I can leave early Thursday. Used every minute of vac on a earlier trip….
    hope to have the GK back together, if so, riding it, if not the e will have to do. Most likely will be bringing a trailer with extras. Coolers and ice most notably. Possibly an extra bike. Time will tell.
    if anyone needs something brought that I might have, let me know.

    ride safe, see you Thursday!

    The event is 17 years strong so far? Skippy hasn't missed one yet, last year it happened too and I'm kicking myself for not going...

    So I'm on for a longer day today (5Am to 8Pm) but it's good because I have a new line manager starting that can cook so it means I'll be able to break away for SURE!

    Eli, I ran the GS550E last night and its running GOOD! I went through the front brakes earlier this week and installed SS line and Sintered pads. The thing stops well and the single old skool disc actually is pretty good for this little 430lbs 4 banger. Tires are new (ZR rated radials) and the bike handles very well, suspension is tired though so expect some underwhelming rebound. It will do 70mph around the turns no problem and zips up hills. Jetting kinda isn't perfect but I'm running the stock air box with some added filer material and got it to run good with the stock air box and the crappy 4-1 kerekr and Delkvic fart cannon. Once I can find that 4-2 I'll be putting it on! Oh And the seat is recovered so you have a proper E seat!!! Do note that the petcock doesn't flow fuel unless on Prime so... Just pretend you have res and off only... Just filled it last night for ya. I have to source a new Petcock, rebuild never work for me. Also tell me if the throttle pull is too hard... It feels like you really need to wrench it to just crack the throttle. I think Throttle by wire with the Bonneville has spoiled my right wrist some.


    Looking forward to seeing you cats in a couple days! Travel safe guys!

    Yer the man Justin. I hope we can work this out. I'm sure that 550 runs better than any of my old jalopies. Except for the beemer of course. I'm certain that OLAS satan rides a beemer.

    If the creek don't rise, and the way it's raining now it just might, we'll be rolling soon. RLAM

    I might be around tomorrow afternoon... Might, I'm trading a motorcycle for a new driveway so I will need to break away to get the bike delivered to my buddy that will pave my driveway.... Nothing Ya'll would be interested in... A Yammar Roadstar 1700.

    Anyway I will be heading down to ProCycle in Southern Rutland tomorrow afternoon, ride offer cash than deliver the Yamaha to my buddy, who is my next door neighbor.

    Couple a ways we could work this out. You could meet me at Procycle Thursday afternoon so that I don't have to find a way to juggle bikes (might be closer to Coolidge than my house now that I think about it) I could kill 2 birds with one stone tat way. Just shoot me a text or call man.... I'm at work till later tonight.

    Hope I can get you on 2 wheels.
