I know it is getting close to Spring as I am lying in bed at 4 am thinking about riding. Seems far away with the 4 feet of snow on our yard.

Carl,
Our plan would be to leave Wpg on the 16th of May and return back on the 21st.
It would be great if you could join us.

Heading across New Mexico just south of Albuquerque. Decided to avoid rush hour and go cross country to Santa Rosa. Flat and straight for miles.

Oops...

Had a getoff just north of Freeman SD yesterday.
Bike has a bunch of busted plastic and a holed right rocker cover.
Was accelerating up to highway speed when I spotted water on the road.
Thoght nothing of it...
Turns out it was ice. Bike went down in a heartbeat.
Woke up facedown in the ditch.

I'm a bit banged up, suspect ribs and broken collarbone.
Made my way (bikeless) to Fargo where #2 son is picking me up today.
Will post pics when I get home. Well, after i visit the doc.
Cheers, Brian

Glad you're still with us Brian. Heal fast (but not too fast, at least make it close in the yearly mileage contest ).

Hope to see you soon.
