Going up Friday. Eddie will also be down Friday. . May take in some sights while I'm up there. Was thinking 42nd, but will definitely pick some interesting gravel roads.

You could be the first to ride the 42nd on an SV...

Actually, that sounds like a challenge. I’ll ride the SV through. It may never look as shiny again, but hell it would be fun.

I haven’t any real plan, just have to be back Sunday, and keep it cheap.

Bart we could probably accomodate Mark on the friday, & still do a dirty ride on the saturday. Events don't really start until later.

Sounds like a plan. It'd be nice to go up the hill and have a look at some snow.

hill?

and no you can't take the sv through the 42nd - you might get mud on those lovely shiny mufflers (even though they don't do any muffling).

Just talking to our American friend. We might head up on the Friday. Do the 42nd on Saturday morning. We're keen to hook up with anyone coming from the south on the Friday.

I've volunteered him for the hill climb since he'll be riding orange.
