Willi is back!!!!
 
Willi has decided to ride along with me on the 2017 iron Butt Rally just like he did in 2015. For this rally he will be sitting on his perch looking over my shoulder to make sure I don't do anything stupid. In 2015 he was too busy looking behind me thumbing his nose at cars as I passed them and he let me get into my accident.

Here is a link to the thread that will be updated with my status each day. I will try to post photos of Willi during my down time which will be the days before the rally and at the checkpoints on June 28 and July 1

Willi has been conspicuous by his absence, he probably needs some wind in the face!:clap

I figured Willi was retired and just hanging by the pool with the babes...glad to hear he'll be back in the saddle!

He was wintering in Wyoming. It seems he likes snow and cold

Willi looks like he's a road dirt rider. I think he needs a good bubble bath with the ladies again. ;);)

sportsterpaul 23rd July 2017 23:40

The hell you say Barry, I believe it is I who needs the bubble bath with the ladies!

ParrotHead 14th August 2017 14:21

Over the weekend Willi and I rode in a friend's rally. Here is a quick summary, I will post a full thread soon.

You know a few years back I had the honor of traveling with “Willi” and our very own, infamous “Brad” for the Florida visit with “Francois “ then back up to Boyer ?Station. Quite an excursion!

See Willi likes he's bubble baths.

He's safe and sound in my garage, getting ready for a 6 day trip starting July 3rd to Nashville, Indy, Michigan, and then to the AMA Vintage Days in Ohio July 7 & 8. He rides high up on my Tour Pak keeping an eye on me as I ride.

sportsterpaul 26th June 2018 20:34

Maybe our exalted leader can make the Vintage Days?

sportsterpaul 2nd June 2020 17:09

Chris, not much activity from Willi of late, you still care taking?

rokytnji 2nd June 2020 17:14

Reading this thread made me think of times past when a girl convict I was writing while in USMC found out when I wrote about Billy. Billy was a girl. She thought Billy was male. Never wrote back after that.

Every body needs a companion. I like yours.

Where's willie!!!

decman 3rd June 2020 02:16

I could use him on my Utah Ride, leaving on the 10th.
Maybe we need a Willie Jr. or Willie II.

I still have him strapped to my bike. With this virus stuff I have not been riding until 2 weeks ago.

Don't think he will get there in time.

decman 4th June 2020 17:20

Yea, no worries.
