I'd be surprised if you didn't run into some folks coming down from WI/IL/MI. I'm always surprised how many are at the rally.

Thanks, fughawee. I understand they will let me attend this rally, even though I ride a Wee-Strom.

I have ridden a lot in southwest Missouri, but never in southeast Missouri even though it is closer to me. Looking forward to checking out the twisty asphalt.

Hey Chicago, who's going to this thing? Let's ride down together.

Anyway, I'm way up der, ya hey, in Rockton, north of Rockford. Ya know.. Way up nordt, der..

My attendance is going to be based on the weather, and how much whining I get from my parents and sister/BIL to go cut up our parent's winter's supply of wood that weekend. I'll know more once it gets closer to the 11th..

Their firewood should already have been cut.

I'll probably be hanging out at the farm that weekend armed with pointy sticks.

Hopefully, more than one. I have discovered a trick in jerky making.

No problem, Paper. Ya - if the weather is crap, I'll probably take a pass too. Which would be shame, since I already have clearance from the tower.

I'm about 45 minutes from the intersection of I90 and Route 20, so not too far from where you're at. Let's keep in touch, and maybe ride down together if it works out.

Several of us from the cental Iowa are are heading to the rally, providing the weather cooperates. Great rally, they even let us outcasts on Yamaha Teneres attend.

Nice! I will probably visit my daughter at the UofI in Iowa City after the Rally. You boys can show me the good route to central Iowa.

This is one of my favorite rallies. There is always good times when black powder and beer is involved.

We normally are on the hill by the shelter.... Look for two black Teneres. Looks like the weather through next Wed. will be in the 70's let hope it stays that way through the weekend.
