I am thinking I will arrive around 10:30 or 11 but that is just a guess. Still waiting to hear if my father is going to meet up with me and ride out there also.

Probably not. Getting a new rear tire at MotoSports. The old one is, um, "used." Early decay from right wrist syndrome.

Just met a fellow ADV member at Dahls on Ingersoll. I stopped in to grab a few things and noticed a loaded up KLR with panniers in the lot and a guy sitting on the curb snacking. Stopped and chatted for a while with him he is on his way to Denver from Chicago. He is couch surfing with someone in Des Moines for the night and was just waiting for them to get there. Really nice guy, it is pretty cool running into people on their own journeys. His name was LJ but I can't remember his screen name. Gave him my # to call if he runs into any trouble.

So it looks as though I will be hosting Tiffany again on Saturday as she travels from Chicago to Utah.

Not sure of the plan but my wife is planning on cooking some vegetarian offerings for her since we took her out last week when she was here.

Maybe going to drag her down to HoB to see a friend's band play...but it all depends on how she feels once she gets here.

How did you come about hosting Tiffany in the first place?
That is pretty cool.
Is she stopping by Gina's?

I am getting so discussed with this bike, every time we go for a ride I need to wash it when we get home. It refuses to just go past a trail or dirt road. I’ll be out for a nice leisurely ride in the country and try to go past a trail and it just jams on the brakes and turns down the trail. It’s no use trying to fight it. So I never washed it up last night because we are heading into MO.golia for some remote riding today.

Actually, I just posted up in her China ride report that if she needed a place to stay and next thing I know, I got a PM. It was all down hill from there hehe.

I hate to sound like a broken record but she really is a fascinating lady. Her first trip to India was pretty much a "You want to...?" and not too long after getting her license. Sort of like Nike...Just Do It.

I am not sure if she is going to be in a hurry to get to Utah but I am going to try and convince her to stay for a day to do the Bridges ride in Madison County.

As for Gina's, I don't think she will make it. She isn't planning on leaving Chicago until noonish. I did email her info on Gina's and the events on Saturday so if she does make it, great.

Saturday I now have to help my wife clean the house because she is anal about having house guests and not having them see our house how it is 90% of the time.

I have a 650 gel seat but I am looking for something taller. Bad part, I won't be at Ginas Sat. We are leaving for Vintage Torque Fest tomorrow. If you see a Black Vstrom, Triumph Thruxton, and Silver Sportster in the campgrounds stop by and say Hi. The name is Jordan.
