Cool2 Leaving Minneapolis

In Minneapolis, I was taken out for a boat trip on a lake, luckily I had all my bike gear as it was a bit chilly, I'm the one who looks like Ten Ton Tessie, but you know what?? I was the only one who was feeling warm.



Moving on swiftly, I made them the national dish of Cornwall



Pasties (except that I've noticed Americans pronounce it a bit different)




on the way back to Chicago to return the 1200, I stopped off in La Crosse, Wisconsin to meet my ADV Secret Santa- Aberdeen, the recipient of some random stuff I sent out in December.
He also rides a 1200GS, a red one, it looked like I'd deliberately turned up with a matching bike.



We had a great meal at a Cajun place called Buzzard Billy's, or something like that. I was fascinated by the fact that they were serving aligator meat. Don't worry folks, I stuck to the veggies.
Also meeting up with us was Ernie Bell - the guy who makes the great stainless steel tent pegs. I'd met Ernie the previous weekend at the BMW meet. He rides an airhead as well.
