Default 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!

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.
