    Well wheel bearings should be here Monday... Should have enough time to button up and put some miles on it to shake it down.

    Planned out my trip from NE Indiana...
    SUNDAY ride to Omaha NE (9.5 hrs 621 miles)
    MONDAY ride to Laramie WY (8hrs 545 miles)
    TUESDAY ride to Twin Fls ID (8.5 hrs 565 miles)
    WEDNESDAY ride to our Hotel in Oregon (10 hr 569 miles)

    About 2300 miles and 23 hrs. Of actual riding time
    ​​​​​​..... Each way...... Should be a fun 12 days.... So I figure I'll put on 5000 miles on the new build. Sucks that Celina Meet N Greet is no longer happening.... Only 60 miles from me and I am a a member of the Eagles and have a boat on the lake there at The Eagles...

    Hope to be checked in by 10 pm at the hotel on Wednesday night so I can be fresh for the next several days...

    Need to find a nice young gal to ride on back to help keep me awake (but not have fiance find out lol)

      Had to take a couple people off the list, Silkentek and her hubby as well as TimB who are unable to make it up. Adding Lug Nut though! He may well get the long distance ride award!

            I'm really looking forward for this ride. I'm tired of being cooped up, and ready to hit the trail.

            I stopped by the hotel today and they said that there are currently 9 rooms and 2 RV spots booked that mentioned Starfest. Only changes at the hotel will be that the pool and spa will not be open. You guys that are on the fence or making excuses need to man up and show up! Make your reservations, mention Starfest for the better rate, and BE THERE! No more excuses!

            Michael and I are planning on being at Redding, California Tuesday the 28th, then heading over to McKinleyville, heading north along the coast, taking our time. From Florence, Oregon heading over to Harrisburg and planning on being there Thursday afternoon.
            Is there anything we should watch out for?

              Coming up the coast you should ride thru the redwood. I think its called avenue of the giants then south of Crescent City you will cross a bridge with gold bears on the ends of it and a few hundred feet past that is turn off to the drive thru tree, its like a 5 minute detour and fun to see. Then a little farther north, maybe 10 miles, get a picture with Paul Bunyon and babe.

                Wow Lug Nut, that will be a good ride. Just be careful, and watch out for the driver fatigue. Take your time, and stop to smell the roses along the way.

                They Jay, Mark L. dropped out and Carl will assume his room #108. Carl may need a room mate if anyone is interested. Let me know if you are interested and I will get you in touch with him.

                    We've had free Raffles at this event before and they were fun. If you have a fun motorcycle related white elephant, gag or even useful item laying around the shop, bring it with you to donate for the raffle! If not no big deal.
