Heh, I finished up my ride and stopped by the Comfort Inn desk on the offhand chance of a cancellation.  I'm in party central for the weekend!

Good thing you got a room. It looks like your going to get wet with in an hour.

I'm still fighting this cold so i would say I'm going to be a no show.

Looks like rain for a few days in the upper midwest. I've always wondered why the Moonshine Run is so early in the spring.Seems like a good time,but Spring around here is pretty volatile..Get better Ed.

As always I live vicariously thru pictures!


I wondered the same thing last year when it was cold and rainy. A month later in the year, even 2 weeks later would make the chance of good weather so much higher.

I'm close to there and I probably won't go again this year.

Ride 100 miles in the rain.
Stand around in the rain for a day or 2.
Ride 100 miles home in the rain.

That doesn't sound like a perfect weekend to me...

It's about people who have an abnormal relationship with their bike.  Yes, Moonshine is not for everyone.  There, I said it.   Lol

And remember Terry's famous words.....

If you don't make it to Moonshine,,, you ain't a Motorcycle Rider,,, you're just a Motorcycle Owner!!!

That may be true Tom but looking at the radar i would suggest putting some pontoons on the bike if it hasn't floated away already.

Waiting on G, Wibornz and Zach to show up.  We had major storms roll thru about 30 minutes ago.  Thunder, lightning and buckets of rain.  Last I heard, they were 15 out.  The cells are following I-70 thru Illinois/Indiana.  I'm making room in my room for two big guys and two smaller one to sleep.

And the bike is really clean now. Lol

All here, they stopped at a rest area to avoid the lightning.

I'm a couple hours North of there and we've had 30+ MPH winds all day.  That should improve their fuel mileage on the way back.  Lol

We had a beautiful ride up to Fort Wayne, where we parted ways.  They wanted to get home, I wanted to do a few more hours of riding.  No rain, mostly a tail wind and lots of sun.

The saying on the MLR2010 shirt,( which DavidLSI designed and made) is: It's Never Too Cold... Never Too Wet... Never Too Far - I rolled in the garage this morning at 9:30 AM with an extra 1713mi. on my C14 since last Thurs. at 12:24PM and some SS1000 stuff too!

  Got a little cold, (28deg. when we left a motel in Ohio after 3 hrs. sleep, no heated gear, just grips!) A little rain, kind of heavy on the way to get burgers yesterday morning, the trucks were pulling over with their flashers on, but not as hard as it rained on Ed and I in Wisconsin last year! and a few hours of steady rain on the way home yesterday too. and well the extra 1733mi. on the bike. And it was all very much worth it!!! Nice seeing you Tom and Scott!

Ended up with 797 miles for the round trip.  Did not get to camp out like I wanted.  The burger was worth the hardship.

I had planned to go but could not get free Friday. I did ride Saturday in dry, sunny, but breezy weather to a RTE in Memphis and then picked up some bonus locations for the Big Money Rally. All in all I had a nice 550 mile day ride. Maybe I can make Moonshine next time.
