Maybe.  We'll see how the question flies at the shop to take a week off.

Chili-man!  Haven't seen him hereabouts in quite some time.


Hopefully the Statue of Limitations on Public Intoxication have since passed...or he might be in for a rough time if he gets caught out and about!

Chili is planning to be there, even though I can't, if he can hitch a ride with someone like Gary or Ed in August.

So, who's an artist?  Looking for someone to design a logo for the national.  Maybe we need to do it after, based on the event we create.  OTOH, I'm planning to put a printed program together- nothing fancy, just a sheet or two with some of the area's prime rides, restaurants, and motorcycle shops.  

Which brings up another question. How many should I print?  That is, who's coming for sure?  PM me so I can get a rough idea.

For those of us who can't go for more than one night, when will the big dinner be? I'd like to come for a night, see as many people as possible, and hopefully take the long way home the next day on either Friday, Saturday or Sunday night...

Would really like to make this.

Thanks!

Well after the posts I made in the other thread, I'm not sure if I'm coming or not.   Embarassment    I'm going to go with a maybe.
I had a great time in Colorado at the COG National and then headed east to the MSTA National and when I rode the bike
from my parking spot over to the bike wash area at the hotel in Springdale (helmet less and no ear plugs) I could hear the knocking coming from "down there".
That should teach me not to wash my bike.  Rolleyes  I had to ride a friend's DR650 back home and then rent a trailer, tow the DR back and pick up my C14.
So, my bike is in the shop with a broke transmission. It's warranted work so they aren't going to put me ahead of paying customers for sure,
but even with that we are waiting on ordered parts as well. I don't know if it will even be ready for the trip, and if it is I'm not sure
I'd trust it enough to immediately take it on a 2000+ mile round trip. A lot of strange can happen right after the cases are split. I might just fly to Chicago and
rent a bike for two days. Then again I might just stay home. Regardless I'm glad the event wasn't scheduled for July or August like I originally wanted.

Regardless of my attendance, thanks again to DrMikey for setting the event up.

Well, since I'm riding a KLR over to the other end of the world on the Saturday prior to the start of festivities....   Lol

I grabbed some of Cannonshot's gpx tracks for the area.  I'll be doing the slow, flower sniffing stuff, stopping frequently and checking out the touristy attractions.  BTDT on the sport touring end of the spectrum a few times in La Crosse already.  Tomorrow, the street oriented Kenda 270s are getting installed, a carb clean and re-jet done and freshen up the chain oil.  It's good to work in a real cycle shop with lifts and everythang.

Peeps at MCC are great guys, relatively close to O'Hare.  Ask for Geoff, he'll take care of ya.

It seems like this isn't as popular a choice as expected.  If commitments don't pick up shortly, I'll be looking elsewhere for riding entertainment.

Well, I just saw this. Never been to an ST.N meetup/rally, what is the itinerary for this sort of thing?

I'm pretty close* to the location. Funny enough there's and FJR rally in town the following weekend.

I would be remiss if I didn't stop by the Wednesday night dinner, at the least.
