Twin Cities to Rockerbox 2013

Hey all...
I know this is waaaaaaay out there but Rockerbox this year is Saturday, Aug. 3 in Milwaukee. I rode the GS550 there in '09 and it was a very good time.... and I went by myself.

I know several of you who have restoration projects, good o'l bikes and good o'l new ones as well. I'm wondering if there would be interest in a group riding to or meeting up at the show this year. Maybe camp 2 or 3 days or invade a Days Inn or something. Just putting a feeler out there.

If you are unfamiliar with Rockerbox....

I could be tempted by that.

It's unlikely that I would ride the Matchless there.

Alternatively, I might get put off it.

Yeah, we wouldn't want to go riding off to interesting places or anything.

I believe Metallic Waste came up with the while at a BMWMOCM during a MN1K.

True. This is event is 3 to 4 times the size, a mile or so from Lake Michigan, and could be a fun road trip to get there. When I went in '09 I went down to LaCrosse via WI 35 and hung a left. Took me all day but ran on some very, very fun twisty WI roads. Not the fastest way there but that's not what it was all about...

Looks like our martial arts camp is being schedule in late July so there is one less possible conflict to worry about. Hopefully the old 'zuki will be cooperating and up for the ride when the time comes.

I'm still keeping this on the calendar. Can't say for sure whether I'm in until nearer the time, but it would be fun.
