In, but you're getting hard core. This is getting to be like an iron butt saddlesore, where you go to bed and get only 5 hours of sleep. I'll bring my street bike. Since I can, I'll text you Saturday AM and meet you at your driveway.

EDIT: After breakfast, maybe make a loop of it and head to Bayfield or Cornicopia.

Sounds great Mike! I hope to be back at the Little Marais Motorcycle Ranch by 2ish. So we can play the route home by ear. I love stoping in Cornucopia when I can though.

What's at Cornucopia besides a sand beach?

Sounds good. For the Two Harbors crew, how about we meet at the Holiday at the HW2 and HW61 intersection at 730?

MikeS, we can leave accordingly to get there on time.

Tommymerle: are you allergic to pie and coffee or somethin?

Sorry can't make it.

I've got to pedal from about 72 miles Grand Rapids to Virginia on the Mesabi Bike Trail. I'm working on this KAXE and Mesabi Trail fund raising bike ride. Last year we had over 750 bike riders. I am working as a support Road Marshall and crossing guard. I'll get to the Delta someday I've made it to the Dixie does that count? And it involves 2 wheels!!

Not if Mike S leads - he'll show you all the back roads of South Range, running 150 miles to the Diner (about a 70 mile trip) !!!

Unfortunately I will spend Sat in tall grass hunting for my Titleist with an old golfing buddy. Eat well @ the Diner, and greet my friends in Corny at the coffee shop & general store.

Hey everybody. I wanted to take a moment to say, beware of deer!

If you've talked about riding with me at any length, you probably know that I believe deer are the number one threat to us when riding. I just got another reminder of why when I saw an announcement at work this morning that another MP employee was in a fatal collision with a deer yesterday, and his wife (passenger) was also seriously injured in the incident.

Keep your eyes scanning constantly, and keep your controls covered. And may the force be with you.

AND All the Gear All the Time: Although I have known several riders who had fatal accidents riding ATGATT, at the same time, I know a number of riders who have been saved by their gear. I definitely hear you about the deer, having hit one with my sidecar outfit a while back. The safety reminder is appreciated.

Parts Hoarding Pays Off!

Well I got back from the East coast yesterday and took the KTM out for an evening cruise. I didn't even make it out of my driveway before I started to hear a strange noise from the chain. I guess 23,000 miles was all I was going to get out of the chain because it was missing rollers on 3 links!! Not good. I knew if I had to order anything it wouldn't be here till next week. Fortunately, I have a small stockpile of parts, and I was able to source two new 525 chains and two sprocket sets. Long story short, I'm ready for the Delta Diner tomorrow morning!
