Thought you guys and gals might like to know that this Saturday they are blowing out all their motorcycle boots at the Work Boot Factory Outlet at 1500 Regent. I bought a pair from them earlier this year and they've been great.

Keep posting those upcoming rides. I'll get out on one eventually.

Kyle
Thanks Kyle...

I was sitting in Cafe 22 with my wife. I said to her "Hey! That's Jing!".

insurance

Seen in the paper that MPI is applying for a rate decrease for motorcycles for 2014. it said the
average reduction should be about 84 dollars. Whoo Hoo!!!
That should pay for one more tank of gas for the KLR if the gas prices keep going up like the
last couple of weeks.

riding

I have noticed that since the snow and terrible weather has left us there are very few people posting
any future rides. Is it that we are only FOWL weather riders?

PS Don't look at me I go away for the winter

This BMW was spotted alone sitting amongst a 1000 plus HD's at Cavalier ND today... It might be MarkII's.

Here's a photo of the lead-in to our campsite at Rushing River ... With Lucy and NoName standing guard...

We had thunder last might, but no rain to
speak of...

I do like the table cloth, it takes the adventure over the top. Surely your follow up report will inspire many other "adventurettes" lurking in cyber space on ADV.
Looking forward to hearing the tall tales around the camp fire at our next ADV get together!!

Table cloth?

I would never have thought of a table cloth on a motorcycle trip! Greg don't worry, your patio lights and BMW projector cannot be upped by a simple checkered table cloth.
